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.
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.
Lensbabys are the photographic equivalent of puppies. And just as a puppy can turn the heart of the toughest of blowhards into mush, Lensbabys have a tendency of pulling the MTF charts out from under the starchiest of optical snobs simply because they inject a great measure of fun into the act of picture taking.
