Sarah,


Good to read that your prof likes some of your colorful glass images! The portrait is also nice. I might have tried to make the sweet spot a bit more in focus on the face, but this is just my thought, for whatever it is worth. You need to do what YOU want your image to convey.

I'm just trying to get the hang of using the thing. Its so hard to focus with.

I feel like this is the only place I can put my lensbaby photos. People on other sites dont seem to like them or they dont understand it. & Its odd I have been getting a lot of "that flare is distracting" or "I dont like the flare". By flare I assume they mean the bokeh. Someone told me they dont like the word bokeh and that it should be called flair but i'm pretty sure the out of focus circles are called bokeh. It just confuses me a little.

I like the images. People on other websites just aren't cool I guess. We need to have a catch phrase...
"Get with the trend, start to bend". Maybe....

Sarah : Yeah you should just post here, until those other folks figure out that you're stretching the boundries of your aRt .

We are into impressions, reflections, and images that have more "FLAIR" .....:))

Is it just me, or does photo #1 have that "didn't focus in the sweet spot" swirl? I sometimes love, sometimes hate that effect - I love it when I'm trying to do it, and hate it when I don't!

Has anyone else noticed this effect and attempted to control it?

Here's one from my gallery that I think most clearly demonstrates what I mean: [www.lensbaby.com] .

I was going for movement, yeah, but THAT much was a happy accident!
