32/365 Freelensing the kitchen sink

A coworker (and fellow 365er) have been enamored with freelancing. So in a last ditch effort of the night I gave it a whirl.

2 observations:

  1. Come to grips with the fact that you may jack up your camera or at least get a ton of dust spots. I already have a ton of dust spots and I’m passively/aggressively trying to upgrade my camera.

  2. The more manual the lens the better. I was having all finds of issues getting my 35mm 1.8 lens to yield any good results and realized that I couldn’t manually open the aperture up. So I got out the trusty 50mm 1.8, open that puppy up and let the buttery-blurry goodness commence.

On a side note: This is the funky wash spout for our IKEA sink and my wife did this killer backsplash when she was 7 months pregnant with our first born.
