Both photos were taken with a Sony A6000 camera with a Canon 60mm Macro Lens and Neewer 10 mm extension tube; f/2.8; 1/125 sec; ISO-100
This summer I have really been focusing on flower photography using my Sony Lensbaby lens and a Canon Macro Lens on my Sony A6000. Today I decided to add a 10mm extension tube to get in a little closer. This was the result.

Although Canadian Geese are quite plentiful where I live and can be photographed almost any day, they are still one of my favorite things to photograph in the water. On a calm overcast day, the reflections are wonderful.
I bought this lens a year ago and was really frustrated with the results of my photography sessions. No matter how I adjusted the lens or bokeh blades my photos left a lot to be desired. Yet many photographs taken by others with this lens were amazing. Why theirs and not mine?
Initially, we were not a good fit. The whole purpose of the Lensbaby is to create soft, dreamy photographs. I am someone who strives to create clear, sharp photographs. I suddenly realized when using this lens I was just shooting to shoot. So I set out to create one really sharp area in an image and let the rest just happen through adjusting the bokeh blades. Much happier with the results and this lens has become a whole lot of fun!
This photo was taken with an Iphone 6 and processed with the mobile app Snapseed. The app allows you to mask, add layers through the double exposure tool and edit your photo with a variety tools that most computer software programs offer. It will also process RAW photos.
If you are looking to have some fun on the run, I would recommend taking the time to learn this app!

My photography club decided to challenge our members to create a new image using a provided sunflower photo. It was quite fun! The final image was created from 3 separate photographs. The software programs used were Smart Photo Editor; Photoshop; Luminar.
