Freelensing on Hampstead Heath

Yesterday was such a gorgeous day, and having spend most of cooped up indoors doing various chores it was great to get out for an evening stroll with my girlfriend and a friend of ours.

The Heath is always a great place for trying out new photographic techniques, and with my first official wedding shoot just around the corner I thought now might be the time to get practicing.

The photographers out there may have come across freelensing before, but for those who haven’t, it’s a simple way to modify the focus plane so to create effects where specific areas of the image can be thrown far out of focus. Check out Sam Hurd’s piece on the technique.

Thanks to Liz for modelling.
