Daydream, dream of at night, think about while I am driving…
and some of those accessories that I often dream about are the Lensbaby products!
I have been lucky enough to get to review the Lensbaby Composer Let me start by saying, if you want a handy little lens with oodles of artistic potential and you have the extra money to spend, this is the lens for you! It gives a dreamy, beautiful blur on everything except the chosen “sweet spot” and makes even bland subjects look dreamy and artistic. I could see this being perfect for, children’s photography (especially those sleepy pics), and urban pics!
You can also buy one of several “optics” to swap out with your lensbaby for even more effects! How about doing some old fashioned? Theres an optic swap lens for that…or plastic optic (reminds me of the old 110mm film style photos but with some significant improvement), or the Single Glass optic or the Double Glass optic….yeah there are a lot of ways to change up the Lensbaby effect!
There is a learning curve that I am not quite sure I quite have a handle on yet and that can be frustrating and this lens is definitely not cheap….but the quality of the lens, it is very sturdy feeling and moves effortlessly when attaching it and when focusing, and the effect make up for it!
If you are serious about your photography and if you are looking for a lens that gives you that special edge over your competitor…or if you are just someone who has the extra money to buy a great product that is sure to enhance your photos without a ton of extra editing….then the Lensbaby Composer is definitely something you should consider!
