New and New and New!

I want to tell you about three new things that I am very excited about! The first two are new Lensbaby products.  Last Spring I had the pleasure of beta testing the new Lensbaby Sweet 50 optic and it quickly became my favorite optic! It has the 50mm focal length of the Double Glass optic, combined with the 12 blade adjustable aperture found on the Sweet 35. I have been using it with the Composer Pro lens, and am really enjoying the sharpness and ease of aperture selections. Here are a few image samples:

The other new Lensbaby product I have been having a ball with is the new LM-10 lens for the iPhone. Having a Lensbaby with me all the time is providing so much fun! Here are some photos from my phone:

You can also shoot video with the Lensbaby LM-10, here is my first one:

The last news I want to share is a new online Mentoring program I will be starting in November.  If you want to advance your skills, get feedback on your work, refine your vision, get yourself out of a photography rut or move through a block, this is the perfect place for you.

You will need to have taken my online class for the subject you want to focus on for our month together. For example, if you'll be shooting with a Lenbaby, you need to first learn the basics in my Lensbaby Magic  class. Students who want to focus on Flower Photography will ned to have taken my Capturing the Beauty of Flowers class.

Topics are totally up to the student but can include both shooting and post-processing techniques. I will send a questionnaire before we begin so that I have a clear understanding of what you would like to work on.

The price for 4 weeks is $250 and includes:

~ 8 images critiqued per week via e-mail, phone or video (student choice)

~ unlimited questions answered and support via e-mail.

Contact me for more info.

Happy Shooting!
