This time of year is perfect for expressing our creativity. Many make gifts - I enjoy doing that with my photos - and I reach for a lens that helps me capture the magic of the season.
That lens is my Lensbaby Creative Bokeh optic. It has a set of magnetic disks that are cut out in different shapes and transforms lights into hearts, birds, and stars for example. Over the past couple of weeks, I have had so much fun walking around my neighborhood capturing the lights.
I was able to capture some fun images of the cityscape with this lens as well. The stars were out early in the morning.
And the sidewalks on my neighborhood of Queen Anne were full of stars as well.
I plan on using this lens more regularly, playing with the different aperture disks, because I enjoyed transforming my subjects into magical images. It helped me capture a bit of the spirit of the season.
I hope you have a joyous holiday season, and find ways to embrace your creativity this month. I love hearing from you, so comment below, post on our Facebook page, or send me an email at carol(at)carolvipperman.com.
