lensbaby | interview and info

December 15, 2011

so fun to see my lensbaby interview reposted on the lensbaby blog yesterday.  not sure if i ever shared the interview here…

i get asked a lot of questions regarding shooting with a lensbaby (i’ve actually received five emails over the past couple days).  most often, it’s inquiring about my favorite lensbaby products or which products i’d recommend. so i thought i’d share a bit about that here (lensbaby makes for a great christmas gift).

first, you need a lens.  i have both the composer and composer pro lenses. the composer pro is definitely more solid / sturdy feeling.  and for a $50 difference, i’d go with the pro.

then you need an optic (or two or three…). i started using a lensbaby years ago, with the double glass optic. some are discouraged by the fact that with the double glass optic, you have to internally swap aperture rings.  however, honestly…i rarely swap the ring. most of the time i’m shooting with with the f/4 ring in.

not long ago, lensbaby released the sweet 35 optic, which is awesome because you can adjust the aperture on the outside [versus having to insert a new aperture ring in the optic].  the sweet 35 is an awesome optic; however, for me personally, i’ve become so used to my double glass optic (some habits are hard to break) and i seem to be more of a 50mm shooter than a 35mm shooter.  so i still seem to default much of the time to using the double glass optic.

i have almost all the optics and wish i could share more thoughts on the other optics but i haven’t shot with any others — YET!! it’s definitely one of my 2012 goals; experimenting and playing with the other lensbaby optics.  anyone want to model for me?

here’s a few of my favorite lensbaby photos shot in 2011…

and i’m so honored to have this shot grace lensbaby’s sweet 35 optic box.

Amazing pictures! Thank you so much for sharing your tips with us. I wanted to get a lensbaby for christmas but I didn’t know which one to choose.

I thought it was pretty cool when I got my sweet optic and your shot (the last one posted) was on the box. :)

I, too, had not seen the swing shot before. Love it.
