Golden Spotlight

The other evening, I glanced over at my entry hall as beautiful light from the setting sun cast a golden glow over my forgotten ranunculus arrangement on the cabinet. I am always complaining about the lack of good light in our house, so I felt compelled to run and get my camera and snap photo after photo until the light faded. My lensbaby Sweet 35 was on the camera- and of course I don’t remember what the aperture was set at- maybe f/4, which produced a lot of blur on the sides (more than I usually like).  The second shot shows my adjustment- pushing the bottles together to put more of the flowers in focus.  Closing down the aperture would have forced me to raise the ISO more than I wanted to in the excitement of the moment, so that was my speedy solution.

  2. You have such a wonderful view out that window and I would think it depends on the time of year for the good light and I think you have found it end of May light. 🙂 I love all the blur in the top really accents the gorgeous middle. Guess that is why I simply adore anything Lensbaby.
