I was in the mood to shoot some macro photos today, but do not have the right lens to do it. Then I recalled my Lensbaby – it does the job quite nicely and makes the photos have a nice sort of surreal quality to them.
my cat who kept following me around until I took her photo. guess she’s turned into a camera whore.
glass cubes from G’s bus.
mushrooms growing on an old stump. I liked the stripes.

I was just reading up on Lensbaby half an hour ago!! I’m also a photog, despite what I do with this account. Anyways, how do you like it? I’m planning on picking one of these up
@Mr Chien – I like it. However, i will admit that I owned it for over a year before I could figure out how to use it. Why? You have to really know the manual settings on your camera well before you buy it. There is no auto anything with it. Once I had my camera figured out and could use it, I have enjoyed the effects. I’ve used it for these types of photos, HNTs, and candids with the kids. Neat stuff.
Manual is the only setting I use so hopefully learning how to use the lens won’t be hard. I’ve never used my camera for hnt, only done a few naked self portraits.
