Lensbaby is a whole system of lenses to add creativity to your photography, and at the moment I've got a Lensbaby Composer, so I'll be sharing my experiences as I learn more about these fascinating photographic tools.
What all of the Lensbaby products have in common is that they're selective focus. The lens is sharp in the middle, but then you can move that sweet spot around the frame. The blurred area is hard to describe, it's a mix of depth-of-field, out-of-focus blur, and almost a zoom-like blur. I'll just say that it looks great!
