daisy-lensbaby-velvet85-garden-macro

Earlier this week a parcel arrived and in it was a new lens that Lensbaby have loaned to me, the Velvet 85. It is part of the Velvet series. I’ve been using the Velvet 56 for over a year now, so when they asked me if I would like to try it and review it, I jumped at the chance. I love the Velvet 56 and have loved using it for macro photography, so I was curious to see what the 85 would be like.

Floral Friday

It has been a couple of weeks since I did one of these. It is nice to get back into it and I loved finding so many flowers in my garden when I got home. I haven’t had a chance to get out to them to take photos, but will soon.

It has been raining here quite a bit and the flowers in the garden are suffering from it a bit. They seem a bit soaked, or drenched, not sure. It is also nice to see that many things are starting to flower. I planted quite a few bulbs, so I’m looking forward to them flowering. I want to be able to have a garden that I can photograph all the time. It would be nice not to have to spend too much time travelling to other places to get photos of flowers.

Floral Friday

Only one flower today, I’m afraid I’ve been a bit slack with the macros this week. I’ve been busy and I have the Canon 5D4 I need to play with before it goes back. However, spring is almost here and flowers are starting to appear everywhere, so I will be back getting heaps again soon.
