Free-lensing, Canon EF 85 mm /1.8 USM…
love this out of blur Alexandra !
thank you so much, Victor!! I don’t know how you do your brilliant free-lensing, but I had hard time with this shot… maybe 85 mm and raindrops are not a good idea for free-lensing, as the object is too tiny, don’t know, but hardly have any good shots…even this one does not look good in a bigger size…
You’re right – it not a good idea to ise zoom lens for freelensing but you finished it successfully!
I’ll try the 50 mm next time, if anything decent comes up I’ll quote you as an inspiration 🙂
Good luck Alexandra 50mm is the best for this !!
Whoa sooo pretty
thank you so much, Divsi 🙂
Beautiful shot ! I love it…
I love the technique you used. I haven’t tried it yet, but the result you have is gorgeous. Lots of work, though, I bet ?
you should give it a try, it’s fun… 🙂 my conclusion after this shot is that I need to focus on larger objects next time, trying to focus on a tiny raindrop while free-lensing with a heavy 85 mm lens was a pita, honestly… I hardly have any decent shots, except for this one, and it does not look quite great in a larger size… the raindrop is not very well focused… yet, indeed, the blur is insane… it was worth the try anyway 🙂 thank you so much!!
thank you, Philippe 🙂
Excellent shot. Sharp only where it needs to be sharp.
the free-lensing technique gives this wicked blur and I’m very happy with it… yet the raindrops are not so well-focused on a larger size of the photo… but it was an interesting experiment, hope I have better results next time 🙂 thank you!! 🙂
Gorgeous shot, love it Alex
thank you, my dear Bernie 🙂
Very nice picture ! 🙂
very happy you like it!! 🙂
thank you, Martin!! 🙂
very nicely done, alex!
thanks much, Graham!! happy you like the shot….
Beautiful beautiful beautiful!
aww, thank you, Lois 🙂 these tiny raindrops are really beautiful indeed…
Very nice indeed, Alex….Cheers
I need to experiment more with this technique… the same shot taken with the lens mounted on the camera looked quite boring lol … but it was really hard to achieve any shaprness of the raindrop this way… maybe with another lens? I’ll find out next time 🙂 thank you so much, Chris!
Beautiful – who’d leave such a place?
right! it’s like some enchanted secret garden 🙂 thank you, Lignum!!
Cool. I’ve never tried free lensing, but I will!
this is the only decent shot I got from too many… and it is not perfect when you look at it on a larger size… yet the blur is really wicked, right? 🙂 hope you give it a try… thanks, Viking!!
Cool technique, great shot!!
thank you, Herbert 🙂 I think it will work better with a 50 mm lens…or at least easier!!
Must try that someday …
Beautiful, Alex. Love the dream-like effect you’ve created here.
thank you very much, Uday!! free-lensing seems to mess up with the bokeh, taking the blur to extremes… very dreamy indeed 🙂
Softness. Beautiful rendering. I love it.
thank you, Cédric, much appreciated!!
Fantastic. 85mm is pretty big and heavy too no?
yes, Kevin, I think next time will try with the 50 mm again, it was hard for me to achieve any decent focus on the raindrops while playing with the focal planes… yet the this dreamy blur would be hard to achieve with a 50 mm… don’t know… will have to try 🙂 thank you so much!!
What a wonderful capture!
thank you so much, Melissa, appreciated 🙂
So so good!!!
thank you!! 🙂
this is stunning 🙂
happy to be reading your comment, Joshi!!
