how did you... | photography, powell river, bc

I get a lot of questions about photography, and, honestly, I'm no expert. Far from. But I do have some great equipment and a degree in photography (film--which isn't a LOT of use nowadays!). Most important of my equipment, you ask?

Lenses, baby.

And, a Lensbaby. That's right. These little doohickeys are the funniest and funnest lenses going. It bends with my fingers. Provides great shots, like my FAVORITE macro "ring shots", and the image above. No, that isn't Photoshopping that makes the image stretch in and out of focus, it's the Lensbaby (2.0, to be exact). By moving the bellows (a.k.a. flexible tubing), I can hit "sweet spots" to create these selective focus images.
