Lensbaby lenses are essential tools that I use to create my images with cinematic and nostalgic elements.
The combination of dreamy focus, in-camera flares and intentional blur create images reminiscent of times past.
I focus on the moment with mood and styling being very important considerations. I want my images to create feelings that stir your heart like old memories.
I also use wardrobe, shooting (perspectives, storytelling, movement) and editing choices aimed to enhance the aforementioned qualities of the image.
In terms of which Lensbaby lenses I use the most; I recommend the Edge 35, Sol 45 and Velvet 56 as these are my three favourites. I also own a vintage lens which is wonderful to use and is great for my style of imagery. I also use the Lensbaby Omni Filter system to create in camera effects like rainbow flares, haze, fares.
If you are new to Lensbaby, the Sol 45 is a fantastic choice and is very affordable but I'd love to help find which lens is best suited for your personal needs. Please reach out, I'm happy to help.
I've included a few examples below of some recent work indicating which lens was used to take each image.
