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."

Please view the website for their display of how to use the lens, as well as some wonderful galleries.

If you have a lensbaby, or know someone who has one....JOIN THE COMMUNITY,....SPREAD THE WORD!

The only rule is if the photo is over 650 x 450 or so please put behind an LJ-Cut. As well if posting more than two photos...please use an LJ-Cut.

This community is mainly for Lensbaby photos...but it's also a forum to discuss the lens, our experiences with it and tips on how to use it.
