        Comments about Focal Press Book: Lensbaby: Bending Your Perspective, 2nd Edition by Corey Hilz:

        I like this edition even more than the first. There's beautiful photos to help inspire. Great examples of the different optics, accessories and lenses. It helps explain the differences between the optics and lenses to help the reader decide which ones they would prefer. I enjoy flipping through the book just to view the photos and any time I have a question it's a quick and easy resource to look for answers.
