Mostly a photography related blog. Think About Photography refers to being ready for getting a photo at all times. This generally means carry your camera around with you as much as possible. Even without a camera, I am imagining how scenes would look in a photo..

Using a plastic plate for making a dreamy image
I like dark blurry images. For some reason they appeal to me. Like nighttime dreams they are real but not real.
I recently have been using 6" plastic plates from Walmart in front of my lens to create the blurred effect. These plates are a soft plastic and have bubbles and haze built right in. Depending on how much blur I want, I can stack the plates.
Plastic Plates of Joy
I haven't tried this on other things like flowers but I am sure the effect will be similar. Kind of like a lensbaby, a very cheap lensbaby.
