Which baby do you like?
This is my little nephew, Ollie. I took these pictures on a recent trip to San Francisco. It was a week before his 1st Birthday and we had some serious guy bonding to catch up on. Lucky for me, Ollie likes cameras. He was very intrigued, as most people are, when I put the Lensbaby 3G on my Nikon D2Xs camera and moved in close. For those of you not familiar with what a Lensbaby is and does, it is pretty simple. A Lensbaby is a specialized lens that you can buy for any SLR camera, cameras that have interchangeable lenses, and it creates a sweet spot while defocusing the surrounding area. Lenbabies can add a very dreamlike quality to your images, and can be very addictive, as they open new doors of creativity…new ways of seeing. As a photographer, I can definitely appreciate that.
So my question to you readers is which picture do you like best:
Ollie eyes closed? As we try to figure out his thoughts and dreams…or
Ollie eyes open? The recognition of something/someone familiar…
