    Gibson baby
    Riverstone Townhomes, Mountain View, California

    Nikon D70, Lensbaby 2.0
    Adobe RAW (ev), NeatImage (denoise, sharpen), Nik CEP (pro contast, xprocess e6-c41)
    1/50 sec @ f/2, iso 800, 50mm (75mm)


    Caitlin held Gibson still enough for me to take this shot with my new baby. Isn’t it great that you have to blow $150 to get your dSLR to take the same photo as a $15 Holga?

    Gibson says meowwwwrr! (Translation: I don’t mind as long as my eyes are sharply in focus.)

    Had to push process this 1.75ev and use some Nik madness to get the contrast to where I wanted it.

    CotC: most interesting photo until January of 2006 when this one replaced it.
    CotC: most interesting photo that is not the most favorite.

      I should have paid more attention to my 50mm settings when I use it. :-)

      (Damn you aperture mode!)

      You know it's bad when you start wishing for a Canon, if only for the TTL metering.

      Adding the pro contrast really brings out Gibson's coat pattern. Much better than my shot of him.

      Thanks! It's all the lensbaby. Focusing it is like trying to ride a bucking bronco.

      @michell1955 It should take a shot similar to it. This was show with a lensbaby and postprocessed to look similar to the way the Holga shoots. :-)
