I lucked out enough to be included with this amazing sea of photographers working on a project called The Free 52.  It is such a treat!  We are doing blog circle to feature our favorite images from the month.  I'll put a link at the end of this  for you to follow through and see some amazing images.  I'm guessing you'll be blown away.

Here's a little ditty about freelensing if you've not heard of it:

Freelensing is when you remove your lens from the camera, hold it close to the body of the camera, and tilt it to manually focus rendering a very distinct focal effect.  It's often referred to as tilt-shift lens effect, or "poor man's tilt shift" as there are actual lenses created to give this effect.  Normally lenses give you a flat area (I think of it as a strip) of focus, however when freelensing your focus / blur area are much more random.

Check out these images of Heather (from part of our "Just Because" session in Salt Lake City where we hopped in Starbucks to warm up with cocoa, yum!) and note the drastic focus / out of focus areas.  Or don't.  Either way, grab your own cuppa cocoa and enjoy the show.

How nice is she?!    Thank you, Heather!
