Welcome to the Lensbaby Photography community. This community is a place for those who have delved into the woozy world of photography using a Lensbaby lens to display their photos.
What IS a Lensbaby? From the website: "The Original Lensbaby, an SLR camera lens for professional and avid amateur photographers who want to have fun creating compelling photography.
The Original creates a ‘sweet spot’ area of focus that you can move around the picture plane by bending the flexible lens tubing. You will get a unique new look, with gorgeous blurring and subtle, prismatic color distortions, all without software manipulations."
"Unique, intuitive photography Lensbabies are the hybrid love children of an old-fashioned bellows camera and an up-tight tilt-shift lens. Lensbaby photographs have the soft, roughed-up look created by Holga™ or Diana™ cameras, but using a Lensbaby on your SLR is convenient, versatile, and enables you to place the subject and the sweet spot of focus anywhere in the image." --from http://www.lensbaby.com
Please view the website for their display of how to use the lens, as well as some wonderful galleries.
