A few weeks ago, I asked a friend of mine for a "Lensbay-Only" session in the studio. On Monday it finally took place. Again, I found it hard to get the focus, much harder then on shootings with natural light. I used the F4 ring and slowed down the flashes as much as possible but it was still too much light and nearly all the pictures where overexposed. Then I used a polarization filter to gain two more F-stops. The result was that the viewfinder was getting so dark that it was nearly impossible to catch the focus. At the end, I used the F8 ring but that cuts off a lot of the lensbaby effect. Maybe on a fulframe digital camera its different but I use the Canon 300D, which is a 1.6crop camera and therefore cuts the edges of the pictures.
This picture finally was made with F8, 1/200 and a frontal flash.
Greetings from Cologne, Germany

Very nice! Can't say I really care for that pose, but it works. Do you have her sitting on some plexi glass?

No plexiglas, sorry. Just plain white paper background. One frontal flash for the model and one behind to overexpose the background.

I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder...as I think that pic is AWESOME...and I LOVE the pose......

Also, about the f8 cutting off some of the effects of the LB...I like SOME
sweet spot showing....all out of focus doesn't do a thing for me.....I'm going
to do some practicing with the f8 with my granddaughter...and dogs...
Not a photographer...but LOVE shooting...

Sorry about the late comments...but I just got my lensbaby and am going
thru the postings to see what others have done..
