Hello everyone!
As many of you have heard it is Lensbaby's 6th birthday. If you have not done so already, go sign up for our birthday giveaway [lensbaby.com] Blurb, Panasonic, and Red River Paper have just added to the long list of presents we want to share with you.

We owe much of our success to you, the forum members. I'm very thankful for your loyal support and inspiration and want to make sure you have a chance to win a present. So, if you were a forum member before we announced our birthday giveaway (Feb. 26th) just respond to this post and I'll make sure your name gets into the "new forum member" drawing as well.

We got a bit taken by surprise at the booth and only got a few Lensbaby images of the festivities on our birthday but I am attaching one image of me and the candled cupcake that kicked off the celebration at PMA in Anaheim.

Thank you for your support and have a super beautiful rest of your week.

-Craig

Yes, pls! Put my name in the hat, I've been a Baby lover for almost 6 years when the only choice was the LBO. Love my Muse with the plastic lens too! Happy Birthday!

This is very kind of you Craig. Count me in as well please.
Somehow, though, I think it should be us sending you the presents. Happy Birthday Lensbaby!

You've given us all the greatest gifts for the last six year with the ability to create amazing images with Lensbaby products.

Thanks for making all this possible. Happy Birthaday to everyone at Lensbaby and to everyone inspired by a Lensbaby.

Thanks for the birthday wishes.

Somehow being six just snuck up on us. Seems like just yesterday I was figuring out that an aperture could rest in front of a lens and the whole universe would not explode. This shift happened less than two weeks before the Original Lensbaby launched, allowing us to provide a very crude version of the interchangeable aps that our current optics have rather than a fixed f5.6 ap.

Attached is my first experiment with the Original Lensbaby (prototype) using aps in front of the optic. Can't believe I have not posted this before.

Paradigm shifts can be very simple. Glad to have been able to share a few with all of you.

Happy birthday to all of of you.
My babies are almost grown up now. I'll soon ask you to give birth to a pair of twin babies shipped to Denmark.. It is okay if their eyes don't focus completely sharp..
And yes I would like to sign in.

Hi Scott,

I can count on one hand the number of active forum members I have met at a trade show. Would love to have had the time to chat. Anyone coming to Vegas for WPPI next week?

Hey Craig,
I wouldn't mind if you added my name, as well. I can't seem to get along without my LB Composer in my backpack (that I lug around every day!). Thanks - and happy birthday!

Happy birthday from across the pond!

Will there be celebrations (ie free cake) on the LB stand at Focus on Imaging on Sunday?

Craig,
Happy Birthday Lensbaby! Sorry I missed you last week at PMA. I had a small window to walk the show floor and you were out doing the same. Brought over a new addict and chatted with Howard a bit. Hope the show was good for you guys. Take care.

Happy birthday indeed! This past year has been a whirlwind of photographic learning for me and the Lensbabies have been a big part of it. Thanks for all the fun toys and also for creating this wonderful friendly and supportive community that is unlike any other on the web.

Regarding Focus on Imaging, we have a Lensbaby representative from the UK at the Intro2020 booth but no plans for cake.

Not sure we have time to set that up. Wish we'd thought of that a few weeks ago.
