It's always so exciting when Lensbaby come out with a new lens and let me get my hands on it pre-release to test it out and write a review. The new Burnside 35 has really impressed me with its versatility and sharpness. Photographing pets with a manual focus lens can be a challenge, but the wide angle Burnside 35 makes it easier to achieve focus than many I've used.

This lens even pushed me to get outside my comfort zone and enlist a couple of models to help me put the lens through its paces in a night shoot at Clifton Hill in Niagara Falls. I was surprised by how much I love the results.

A Sneak Peek At The Brand New Lensbaby Burnside 35

Today, Lensbaby announced their latest bundle of joy, the Burnside 35. They were kind enough to send me a top-secret advance copy of the lens a couple of weeks ago so that I would be ready to share my thoughts with the readers of Improve Photography. Here's my take on the Burnside 35.

 

 

Trudy, Available At Last!

Perhaps it's best that Trudy's abnormal blood results held her back from adoption before Christmas. I mean, just look at her, she looks like she should take about 4 double A batteries, but she is not a toy. She is a real doll, though. Friendly with people and other dogs, sweet tempered and her bloodwork is normal now!

Trudy is available through Speaking of Dogs Rescue, you can find more info and see if she is still available by visiting speakingofdogs.com.

Chester Needs A Foster Home

Chester is a friendly, happy go lucky puggle (pug/beagle mix) looking for a foster home in the GTA. He will need a quiet home with few or no stairs while he undergoes treatment for heartworm. He is house trained, crate trained, quiet, good with kids, dogs and cats. Don't worry, heartworm is not directly contagious, it is carried by mosquitos.

If you think your household would be a good place for Chester to recuperate, please contact Speaking of Dogs Rescue.
