Instagram this Week and Another Article

The last couple of weeks I have been talking a lot about Lensbaby, and I hope you get the idea that I really love them. They have been great lenses for me and recently I wrote an article about them for Digital Photography School. It was published today and here is the link.

Overview of the Lensbaby System – Is it for you?

I have photos for you as well that have been on Instagram this week. I hope you enjoy them.

    A very thorough review of the Lensbaby Leanne . You’ve taken some absolutely lovely photos with it , fascinating effects .. very dreamy and all enhanced by your own style of processing of course 🙂 I think I might struggle with the manual focus with my eyes lol but I can definitely see its appeal . More please 🙂

    • Thank you Louise. I’ve been having so much fun with the Lensbaby, so glad I have it. I have to say, that I thought the same with the manual focus, my eyes aren’t great either, but I am getting more and more used to it. There will be plenty more, I have a different Lensbaby lens now and oh my, I am loving, not looking forward to handing it back.

  2. Really beautiful photographs, Leanne, made even more so by your wonderful use of light.
    My absolute favorite (by far) Lensbaby is the Velvet 56. It’s really such a versatile lens.

  3. Beautiful pics. Of what I’ve seen, it must be hard to take a bad pic with a Lensbaby.

    • Thank you. It is a bit of hit and miss sometimes, but it is also getting used to it David, I find the more I use them the better I am getting at judging what will work and what won’t, but I suppose that is the same for any lens system.

  4. How do you feel about their all manual focusing? Maybe you don’t use autofocus much anyway, but my eyes are not as good as they were and I depend on it. Just interested to hear your thoughts. I do LOVE the effects and they make them for the 4/3 format. At least, some of the lenses are available in 4/3.

  5. I love your handling of lights and darks in this set of photographs, Leanne.

  6. which phone do you use with lensbaby? iphone I suppose?

  7. Thanks for explaining this system. Some new possibilities!

  8. I’m enjoying seeing all the amazing pictures you’re taking with the lensbaby lens, Leanne.

Please, say hello, would love to hear from you.
