Lensbabies made easy!
Lensbabies can unleash your creativity as no other specialty lenses can do. However, they have a somewhat steep learning curve, coupled with a wide variety of lenses, all of which have different capabilities. Becoming good with Lensbabies can be frustrating! This workshop helps eliminate the frustration while teaching you to unleash the creativity you were seeking when you bought your Lensbabies in the first place.
No matter which system you are using, original or composers, drop-in lenses with aperture rings - or the Velvet special effects lenses, you can learn the basics on how to use them artistically. As a bonus - we have almost every lens Lensbaby makes, so you can even experiment with our lenses before buying new ones for yourself! From drop-ins to Velvets to their wonderful fisheye, we have them all!
This workshop teaches how to master Depth of Field to achieve awesome Bokeh with a stunning soft focus. Depth of Field is one of the major storytelling tools available to photographers where you have to decide what to include, or exclude in your image as it relates to foreground - subject - background.
