Lensbaby: Bending your perspective opens your eyes to the wide world of Lensbaby lenses, and introduces you to new tips and techniques if you have already discovered Lensbabies.
The Lensbaby is a versatile and innovative invention that bends and moves to create unique off centre focusing points and lovely bokeh. This book starts at the very beginning, by introducing you to the various different Lensbabies and their properties. There are five different Lensbaby lenses, Composer, Composer Pro, Muse, Control Freak and Scout.
Author Corey Hilz first goes through what each lens does, and what it is ideally used for, before going into more detail about the different uses of each lens and how to capture great shots using it.
There is so much you can do with Lensbaby lenses, from changing the optic in the lens to get different effects to adding in soft focus apertures and loads more. The possibilities are endless and this book shows you the true potential of the Lensbaby series.
In each section, there are loads of full page photos taken with Lensbaby lenses, which show you some of the truly stunning outcomes that you can get from a Lensbaby lens. The book also includes portfolios of different types of photos taken with Lensbabies, showing what you can use them in almost any situation and get great results.
Hilz goes right down to the nitty gritty with the lenses and the optics, explaining how to remove and replace them properly, which can be quite baffling for a beginner at first. Handy tips are given for each lens on how to best use them with each optic, and what effect you will get from tilting the lens different ways.
This is a really useful book for those who have Lensbaby lenses, or are looking to get them, as it will tell you everything you need to know.
