Lens Baby and Tilt Shift Exploration

I recently started playing around with some tilt shift lenses and lens babies and I was surprised how much attention they require. I'm sure that it's the same as anything else, the more time you spend with it the more you understand and then one day it's second nature. Working with these lenses forces you to stop, take the time and attention necessary to truly make the image. I'm happy with these images but I also think I need to spend a lot more time getting to know these lenses.

P.S. Happy 4th! #murica
