The newest, littlest member of the Lensbaby family has arrived!
A huge thank you to Lensbaby for featuring my photo in their video introducing the LM-10 Sweet Spot for Mobile Lens. I absolutely love my LM-10, and am thrilled to be part of the launch!
I discovered Lensbaby selective focus lenses relatively early in my education as a photographer. I love the dreamy, ethereal quality of the blur, the sense of motion, the way the sweet spot of focus draws the viewer’s eye. The SLR lenses are all manual focus, means they require some practice, but they are wonderful for learning on! They are the only lenses from my first lens bag that I still have and use today! In fact, when I started to get into mobile photography, I found myself looking for apps and filters that would reproduce some of the beautiful Lensbaby effects that I missed when shooting everyday images on my phone.
When I found out that Lensbaby was partnering with Kickstarter to create a mobile phone lens for iPhone and Android, I couldn’t wait to sign up! My “early bird” sponsorship was an early birthday gift from my amazing mom (thanks mom!), and when I finally got the lens a few weeks ago I couldn’t put it down. And now, having enjoyed the huge success of its Kickstarter campaign, Lensbaby’s LM-10 has launched and is available to the general public for purchase on their website!
My favorite part of the LM-10 is that it’s super easy to use – the phone focuses for you, and Lensbaby has an awesome free app that lets you move around the “sweet spot” of selective focus as well as add effects to your photos. If you’re interested in trying out the Lensbaby look or just wanting to add some creativity and fun to your phone photography, it’s a great choice!
Enjoy the video – and look out for a familiar fluffy white face!
