M and the lensbaby

By nuetzel • Portrait, Studio • 1 Jul 2014

Here are some pictures I did for the “Circle of Acquaintances” series. M is a friend, art historian and we have a common love for the opera. You can see it here by his baroque appearance.

In the first and last shoot I used the lensbaby edge 80, a tilt lens. When the tilt effect isn´t overdone it produces interesting results. Usually the blur gets to strong if you use it too wide open. That is what you see mostly online and on TV. This effect can be a little tiresome. I used aperture f 8.0 and the sharpness in the focus area on a Nikon D800 is very good. So it is not a toy lens anymore.
