A Softer Liv

Friday, January 29th, 2016

On that last shoot with the amazingly wonderful Liv Sage I pulled out my old single-element soft focus lens and played around with it for a while. It makes nice soft photos in a way that really can’t be duplicated in software. Of course, DxO had no idea what to do with these files, so I […]
