I'm so glad you found me! I'm a San Francisco photographer, and this blog charts my journey in the ever-evolving world of photography. One of the things I love about photography is that it's a journey, not a destination. I'm constantly learning and meeting wonderful people. Please peruse the blog to your heart's content, then check out my website and feel free to contact me! (I love hearing from you.)

Day 102 (June 21) - Beach. Yes, Beach.

I love this photo. Naysay all you want, I will stick my fingers in my ears and pretend I can't hear you (as I do when Evan says to me 'Jessica, I don't think the Lensbaby is good for landscape shots').

Well! I disagree. I think sometimes it is just perfect for landscape shots, especially beach shots. (Just to recap, the Lensbaby Composer is a lens that has one spot in the image in focus, and then blurs the rest. It's like a curved tilt/shift lens, and it's manual focus only, but very very fun to play with. The size of the in focus area increases as the aperture gets narrower; I shot this at f/5.6. The shot from Friday night was at f/2, almost nothing in focus there.)


  1. I love my Lensbaby for landscapes as well, but I have a feeling that they might look stange to "normal people"...

  2. Dang normal people! They always ruin my fun!


I love comments! I read and cherish every single one. Go ahead, make my day.
