spring flowers | serenity | may 2017 by maibritt olsen

Welcome to my first post for the Serenity blog circle (next up is Jennifer Carr Photography).

It had to be flowers - I love capturing flowers - the beauty, the softness, the joy they give me. 

This month, I played with my new lens - the Lensbaby Velvet 56. I love this lens, it captures exactly how I see and feel about flowers.
It does have a steep learning curve though... and I am still learning. It is manual focus and I find it hard to grab focus - especially at the wide open apertures... wide open it is very "glowy" and soft. But I am not giving up! 

What is your favorite thing to capture?


Just to try something new - I converted the image above to black and white.

Please head on over to Jennifer Carr of Jennifer Carr Photography for her take on Serenity.

Thank you for stopping by.
