Through The Lens

1/2000 s, F2.8, ISO 200, f=50mm

Experimenting further with both my 50mm and 28-70mm lenses again in Arnside, I decided to try holding them at arms length to see if I could find the focal point instead of having the lens reversed and attached to my camera, The result is that the image through the lens is in focus whilst the whole scene around the lens is completely out of focus and very soft, due to the high F-stop, it creates an interesting border to the in-focus image and draws your eye to it as the main central focal point. 36 more words

Recently on a outing to Williamsons Park with some friends, I decided to experiment with my lenses I had on me at the time, my F1.8 50mm prime lens and a 28-70mm F2.8 lens. 229 more words
