Omar Upegui R.

Retiree since 2007. Since I had ample time decided to learn photography and purchased a Canon DSRL EOS Rebel T2i camera and a kit lens. After looking at flowers shot by Kathleen Clemons with a Lensbaby lens, I knew I had to buy one. Shortly afterward I purchased the Sweet 50mm f/2.5 swap optic attached to the Composer Pro II accessory. It was the best decision in my life. I post many of my pictures on a Lensbaby group on Facebook. Plan to buy the Sol 45 f/3.5 lens. These are indeed magic lenses for dreamy pictures of reality.
