Food Photography With the Lensbaby

Posted in Huntington Beach, Photography by Bridget Casas on July 7, 2009

Well, I have done Lensbaby a few times this month and food photography a few times this month, so this image uses them both. I messed with my diopter yesterday to see if I could get a better focus with my glasses on. I tried today and it is a little better. Can you really get a sharp center focus with the Lensbaby 2.0 and have  it flair out from the center? That is what I was trying with this image. It is a little better. My last two food images were of healthy fruit, I saw this and thought, what the heck, let’s use something not healthy!

Colorful, forbidden “fruit”…

Watching the Dodger game now – they are beating NY Mets 5-0, 5th inning. We’ll see how it ends! Willie just left for Long Beach. The full moon rises at 8:35 tonight. Maybe I will go take a photo. But, when you have taken one good full moon photo, another one is not going to be any different! Filled out Willie’s means test today for the VA (he is a Vietnam veteran). He will see his doctor tomorrow about his smashed finger. I am not sure what time. I forgot to say that I used my +4 Lensbaby macro filter on this image. I tried the +10, but I would have only shown you about 1/2 a dozen candies in the middle! I cannot believe Gary Sheffield is still play baseball!

      It has been fun to play with but I am not yet where I want to be with it. I want to perfect getting the focus in the center so I can do some portraits and use it at weddings. I think it could be an interesting effect. Than k you for looking!

    Hi Bridget,

    I have enjoyed dropping by to see your Lensbaby journey from time to time. You can definitely get a crisp sweet spot with the Lensbaby 2.0. Practice and a well adjusted diopter are helpful, but so is a good finger position. There is a nice How To Video on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CvL0j8BFasU. I hope that helps!

    Sincerely,
