Thank you, Lorna. I know this isn't extreme lensbaby, but that is one advantage with the edge. Its convenient to be able to use it more traditionally without having to switch lenses. BUT with this shot I WAS trying to slice in on her eyes. I guess I did, but most of the blur was lost due to the ultra-bright conditions, forcing me to use a smaller aperture.

I faced the wide aperture dilemma too, I fixed it with a set of Neutral Density filters and a step up ring of 46mm to 52mm to use my 52mm ND filter set 2, 4, and 8 stops (this fits the Edge 80, the Sweet 35, the 1.6X telephoto, and the 0.6X wide angle; the super wide is 52mm so no ring is needed); combined they will give -14 stops (and some difficult focusing unless using a tripod to frame the shot first). On the other optics get the step up/lens shade accessory that allows 52mm filters to fit.

I usually find the 4 or 8 to be enough and easy enough to hand hold and focus.

I find the Scout body and either the Edge 80 or Sweet 35 to be a good choice for more "normal" photos, especially the Sweet 35 at higher aperture settings. The wonderful thing about Lensbaby are the combinations one can achieve if we think outside the box in the same way lensbaby works out side the box in photography.

Good shooting!

Just me and my lensbaby that day :) But yes, nd filters are a useful addition if a wide apertures is wanted.

I don't have a scout, but would really like one now for my fisheye. Its always a pain trying to center it.
