Hi all! As promised last weekend, I’m ‘popping’ back with some of this year’s poppy shots. Last summer I added the Lensbaby Control Freak lens to my gear bag and enjoyed using it this season with these delicate beauties.  This selective focus lens adds such softness to macro floral shots.

Lensbabies are a bit more persnickety with portraiture, as getting sharp sharp focus is more difficult than with a normal auto focus lens and the distorted blurs can sometimes make a person look pretty wonky! But when I keep the blur level to a lesser intensity with portraits, the results can be fantastic.

If you’re interested in learning more on how to use a Lensbaby they have a wide array of instructional videos on their beautiful site. Their gallery is filled with mondo inspiration, as well, from some of the world’s most talented.

Below are some additional digital art pieces sharing my latest poppy crush. See past poppy imagery here and on Flickr here. Since I don’t hide my Exif data (camera and lens settings), you can view it on my Flickr images. See how to do so on a past blog post here.
