Canon 7D Lensbaby Composer ISO 400 f2.8@ 1/1000th handheld River Street Savannah, Ga.
Great detail! Makes me seriously want to try out a lensbaby.
Thank you for being here. The Lensbaby is one of my favorite tools for Street Portraiture. I particularly like it on a crop factor camera like the 7D because it gives me a bigger sweet spot of focus. I just emailed you a discount code for 10 per cent off all Lensbaby products…..Sincerely, Craig
Absolutely awesome portrait of Red, Craig. His eyes show a lot of sadness, to me and their sharpness seems to accentuate that sadness, but, at the same time, there seems to be the start of a smile. I feel as though I am standing alongside him. Love the black and white treatment.
Your lensbaby shots are just fantastic.
Riveting photo, Craig! I didn’t think about how crop factor cameras would affect the Lensbaby–I’m going to have to try the Composer on my 7D! Thanks for the idea! :-)
Hey Sara and Wes,
Thank you for being here and thank you for the kind comments about this image.
Red is a great guy…..someone I recently met doing street photography.
I made this image on the first day I met him. He was generous enough to let me take a lot of very close portraits. I made some Polaroid Pogo prints for him in exchange. I hope to get a chance to photograph him again…. Craig
“Riveting”, as sara wrote, is a great choice of words to describe the impact this image has on me. I keep coming back to the eyes — so crystalline and focused — even as everything seems to be swirling around him, including the proffered rose.
Great photo, Craig. Good to see some new photos comin’ up here. :)
Did you get yourself a 7D now, too? I just got mine and like it a lot.
