Paperback: Lensbaby: Bending Your Perspective (2nd Edition) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Inspiring photos 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lensbaby Resource Not only does the book go through all the various options within the Lensbaby family and how to use them, the book is FULL of example photos. It also gives a great explanation of the differences between the various lenses and optics. Very useful and helpful with my Lensbaby Composer Pro kit.
