Freelensing With The Dogs

Free-lensing is a recent trend (within the last couple years) in photography where you don’t attach your lens to your camera. The effect produces extreme bokeh and depth of field. I decided to give it a whirl with my in-house models to see what all the fuss is about. Kelley Elizabeth Photography-DSC_8313

I’m not sure it will become a regular part of my style, it is really challenging to nail where your focus lands. And when you’re models move around quite often, you don’t have much time to worry about anything else other than trying to get the focal point where you want it.

As you can see, I had a lot of fail in that regard. The focus was meant to be on the eyes…

Plus I felt like at any moment I was going to wreck my camera body or lens with all the jarring around to find focus. All in all, free lensing is probably not for me. I’ll keep to the old fashioned way of keeping the lens locked into the camera 😉
