Lensbaby Announces New Control Freak Lens

Posted on

Santa Monica Pier shot with Lensbaby by Gina Genis

Lensbaby, the innovative selective lens company has announced a new version of the Control Freak a selective focus lens that allows you to keep a decided sweet spot while creatively blurring the other areas of your image.

I have used Lensbaby lenses and optics extensively. In fact, I currently have a solo exhibit at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, in the Porter Butts Gallery titled June Gloom that was shot entirely with Lensbabies. I can attest to the pure joy of shooting with them and discovering an exciting new way of viewing a typical, tired scene. A Lensbaby lens makes it fresh again.

Lensbabies have been used in television, movies, fine art, and commercial photography. You may have been viewing your favorite shows and thought, hey, that was a cool shot, not realizing it was taken with a Lensbaby.

I teach digital photography workshops and incorporate Lensbabies into the classes. My students are entitled to a discount on all Lensbaby products. If you are thinking of purchasing a Lensbaby or any of the optics or accessories, contact me first for a discount code.

Check the Lensbaby out. Then, go have some fun shooting with one. You will be fascinated with the new effects you create.
