Lensbaby Velvet 28
Lensbaby just released a new lens! I was able to be one of the beta testers for this lens and had so much fun shooting with it! I love that I am able to take a landscape shot and then turn around and take a macro photo because this lens is so versatile. And the bokeh you can get with this lens is beautiful!
I love the 28mm focal length. It was a great lens for walking around this older downtown area.
These two sets of photos show how different the photo can look depending on the aperture you use. The more wide open you shoot (the lower the aperture number) the more of that velvety glow your image will have. Then as you stop down your aperture (higher aperture numbers) you get less of the effect.
This lens has 1:2 macro capabilities and you can focus as close as 2 inches. So versatile!
More photos from a couple different areas I took the lens.
I took this lens on vacation to Amelia Island, Florida also. Here are some of my favorite photos I took with the lens on that trip.
