Saturday March 23rd, 1 – 4PM: All About Lensbaby
Take pictures like you never have before! Join us for “All About Lensbaby”, a 3-hour workshop and learn how Lensbaby selective focus lenses can allow you to be far more creative than simply using basic camera operation. Lensbaby brand lenses for SLR cameras combine a simple lens with a ball & socket mechanism to create special-effects for extra creativity. Lensbaby lenses are popular with photographers for the creative possibilities of the selective focus and bokeh effects. The lens can be manipulated off axis to move the sharpest area of focus (called the “sweet spot”) to almost anywhere in the frame. This allows the important part of the subject to be rendered fairly sharp, with everything else out of focus, even if it is the same distance from the camera. In this workshop, we’ll have all the new Lensbaby lenses for you to try out on your DSLR camera. We’ll experiment with eight different optics, as well as the macro, wide angle and creative aperture accessories. There will be a still-life to photograph, as well as a professional model for shoot, as well.
Please bring your DSLR camera with plenty of memory cards and be ready to have fun shooting with a Lensbaby!
