Portrait of a Fern

This summer I have been continuing my experiments with using unusual lenses for various subjects.

One set of photos is using fast portrait lenses to photograph flowers and plants. In this example I used the 7artisans 55mm f/1.4 lens wide open to photograph a Fern frond on a walk around the neighborhood.

Portrait of a Coneflower

This is my day 30 contribution to Becky’s July Squares on the theme of Perspective and another of my portraits of flowers taken with unusual lenses.

A Coneflower photographed with another fast lens although this time more of a general purpose lens than a portrait lens.

Portrait of an Orange Daylily

This is my day 25 contribution to Becky’s July Squares on the theme of Perspective.

An Orange Daylily photographed with a fast portrait lens to give a different perspective with very shallow depth of field on the flower.

First Test of a New Lens

The Kamlan 28mm  f/1.4 wide open.

I rather like the background rendering.
