So here it is – first shot with the Lensbaby lens. I found it notoriously hard to use on the D70 as it wasn’t bale to pick the aperture or exposure like my D2X seemed to be able, but wielding the D2X with the Lensbaby and operating it as per the instructions was ridiculous.

As it was, 90% of my shots were out of focus in the sweet spot. I like this shot though because you expect the clothes peg to be in focus but it’s the fabric instead.

I daresay the LB (as it shall now be known) definitely suits street photography rather than my style. I will continue to look for inspiration online however.

Pretty obvious – sharpen, B&W, Tint.
