WILL LENSBABY WORK FOR YOU?


When I first considered investing in a Lensbaby, I sat on the edge for so long, wondering if it would work for me. I adored the images I saw tagged #Lensbaby with that gorgeous intentional blur, yet I still hesitated for some reason. Would the blur suit my style? Would I effectively utilize the manual focus to produce the effects I wanted?


Fast forward to today, and I am so thankful I took the leap and purchased my first Lensbaby - the Sol 45.



FINDING YOUR CREATIVE VOICE


Once I became comfortable using the Sol 45, I found my voice as an artist. Before it, I was happy with my images and process as an artist, but something was lacking, even though I hadn’t realized it then.



SEEING DIFFERENTLY WITH LENSBABY


A creative spark lit within, and I’ve been inspired in many different ways. Nowadays, It’s rare to reach for a regular lens for my work, as the Sol 45 helps me tell my story in a richer and dreamier way.


I see differently now. I have a clearer sense of what I want to capture even though the lines become more blurred when you use a manual lens like Lensbaby. It’s that exact open-endedness that I love to work within. My imagery has a new freedom that moves away from traditional rules while embracing that gorgeous intentional blur.



BE INTENTIONAL WITH MANUAL FOCUS


I also have grown so fond of manual focusing. Slowing down has helped me become more intentional with my work, with a clearer sense of the moments I want to capture. Realizing I’ve achieved my desired focus is incredibly rewarding. I love capturing movement, which the Sol 45 does incredibly well, all while surrounding the subject in a beautiful blur and stunning bokeh.



LETTING GO OF FEARS


Those fears I initially held on to have disappeared for good. Does the blur suit my style? Absolutely. Can I manually focus? Yes! It takes time and effort, but the results are worth it. Would I be able to achieve that blur? Yes! Over time, I have learned to use the blur creatively to tell my story better and bring attention to my subject.


SEE WHERE LENSBABY LEADS YOU!


Lensbaby lenses are a fantastic way to get out of a creative rut, find your creative voice as an artist, recharge your passion or challenge yourself to learn something completely new. If you want something new, I urge you to take the shot and see where the lenses lead you.


As always, If you have any questions about Lensbaby lenses, please don't hesitate to reach out.
