San Antonio's Riverwalk Through the Lensbaby Sweet 50

I spent 5 days this month in San Antonio at Click Away 2015.  This was a photography conference put on by Clickin Moms photography forum.  One of the photowalks I took was exploring different types of creative focus, including the use of Lensbabies.

I have the Composer Pro with the Sweet 35 and Sweet 50 optics.  These optics give a circular area of focus radiating into a blut.  You can control the area of focus through tilting the lens and the aperture setting.

I've taken one class at Clickin Moms, led by Caroline Jensen.  And then I took this boutique session at Click Away.  I haven't completely gotten the hang of the Lensbaby yet so I've joined a monthly blog circle.  This is my first post for this circle.

Here are some of the photos that I took along the Riverwalk.

This is my first attempt with the macro tubes with the Lensbaby.

The star lights in the Marriott Rivercenter lobby.  I deliberately blew out the windows in the sky because I liked the reverse effect of light sky and darker stars.
