Spent a couple of hours experimenting with my Lensbaby and fading tulips yesterday. Great way to keep out of the continuing wintry weather. The shapes created by the petals of the fading tulips were fascinating.
Tried out the zone plate lens. ISO 400, f/19 + 1.3 steps, 1.6s. on my Nikon D7000 without any other adapters, etc. Use of rear flash -2.0. Captured in RAW. Slight adjustment of contrasts in CS4 otherwise no post-pro. In-camera work, no added textures.
