I was fortunate to shoot with the all-new Lensbaby Velvet 85 F1.8 that was released a few hours ago. As many of you know I love the Lensbaby lineup especially the Velvet line. I have to tell you the all new velvet 85 is no slouch. The build quality is amazing, the lens is sharp when you need it and dreamy when you want it. A number of looks that you can get from this lens makes it one of the most versatile pieces in my bag. Below are some shots that I took this week during a photo walk and around the area.
This past weekend I was uber-fortunate to lead a photowalk in downtown Rochester New York. I don’t think I have ever shared how much I LOVE that city. Last fall I shot a wedding and taught some classes in Rochester and I have been jonesing to get back. Huge thanks to The Pixel Connection in Cleveland Ohio for hooking me up with the awesome discounts for participants and Lensbaby for letting us borrow lenses for the photowalk! Here are some of the images I captured of our beautiful models.
In a few weeks I am doing a free photowalk in the Flats in Cleveland with Pixel Connection and Lensbaby. During the talk we will be sharing tips on environmental portraiture, posing, and lightweight lighting. Come test out lens baby lenses and shoot with some fun senior models from the TJ Shots Modeling Team! (more…)
This year at WPPI, I purchased the Lens Baby Velvet 56mm FE lens and I wanted to share a few images that I took. A full review is in the works but I couldn’t wait to show some of these images. Check them out below!
