Lensbaby Photowalk Scavenger Hunt

I took off on an adventure to execute a Photowalk Scavenger Hunt for a Lensbaby Lens.

Lensbaby, a mostly tilt-shift lens company, offered a unique opportunity for participants of the upcoming event, PDX Squared, to borrow a lens of their choice for ten days. Out of the four lens options, I chose the Compsoer Pro Edge 80 Optic. With a fun tilt-shift, 80mm fixed lens I was able to capture in my usual style, with a flare of blur.

Here are my final five of a 10 item Photowalk Scavenger Hunt.

Product Description
The Lensbaby Composer Pro with Edge 80 is an all-in-one tilt photography solution for Canon and Nikon DSLR shooters. This 80mm f/2.8 lens is compact, lightweight and affordable. Tilting the lens in any direction results in a slice of focus through your image, similar to the tilt effect in a tilt-shift lens. Incredibly versatile, choosing not to tilt the lens will make spectacular ‘straight’ photos – just as you’d get shooting with a ‘normal’ 80mm lens.

Portland Farmers Market Opening Day 2013!

I went to the Portland Farmers Market this past Saturday for their opening day. There was so much fresh food, hand crafted treats and children playing – it felt like summer! Well, except for the brief shower of rain which seemed to give everyone a quiet moment to explore and enjoy themselves while waiting under shelter.

I have a huge bag of produce and tasty treats to work through, life can’t get better than this!
