A Muse By Another Name

Happy camera day…happy camera play. My fantastic cousin-in-law and photographer extraordinaire, Joanna Puza, let me play with her Lensbaby Muse at a family bbq in August.

I love the motion implied by the shots.

The blur turns something personal, a family gathering, into something more generic and universal.

While I’ve heard the criticism that some people feel dizzy looking at the distortion in the pictures, I love the way the focal area highlights a detail in a picture.

I love the way it makes something totally ordinary suddenly extraordinary.
