                  Comments about Lensbaby Creative Aperture Kit 2:

                  These precision cut aperture discs make lights in your image take on the shape of the cutout. When you add this to the soft focus and motion blur effect of the lensbaby, you can achieve some really incredible results. The kit is very inexpensive, easy to use, and a worthwhile addition for anyone who owns a lensbaby.

                    I'm a total Lensbaby addict, and these new creative aperatures are fantastic! It does take some practice to get them to work right, but once you have the eye for what you're doing they're amazing. They're great for people like me, who are too lazy to cut their own aps from the blanks that come with the other kit.
