Highlights from PhotoPlus 2013

The PDN PhotoPlus Expo took place in New York City, and B&H was everywhere. We were exhibitors at the show (booth #455), and we posted a storm of show updates on B&H Insights, Twitter and Instagram. There was a bunch of compelling new products on display at the show, so we've rounded up the most interesting highlights in this post.

PhotoPlus 2013: Specialty Lenses and Filters from Lensbaby, and LEE Filters

Sometimes your favorite lens just won't get you what you need, and that's where Lensbaby and LEE Filters come in handy. Lensbaby produces specialty selective-focus lenses. There is a wide selection of nice optics, like the Edge 80 and Sweet 35, which work perfectly with the Composer. I must say that seeing them in action is pretty cool, but they take some getting used to. It's not every day you have access to these effects, unless you own a Lensbaby.

Studio Portraits with a Lensbaby Composer

Lensbabies are often used for extra creativity in images because of the tilt-shift effect that they mimic. Creatvity is the lifeblood of many photographers and exploring new methods keep the juices flowing. So when I was loaned a lensbaby composer for the Micro Four Thirds mount, I immediately tried to figure out how I'd use it creatively and differently from the images already on the internet.

Off to the studio we went... 


Lensbaby

Lensbaby makes a number of different lenses for digital SLR cameras, most of them built around the concept of creative use of tilt-shift photography. While traditional tilt-shift lenses are designed for precise control and perspective correction for architectural photography, Lensbaby takes the exact opposite approach for their lenses.
