I just looked at your lensbabies galleries - the photos are brilliant, and I'd love to try shooting with a lensbaby myself. My question is - would it work with B&W infrared film? I shoot Kodak High Speed Infrared film with a Minolta Maxxum 5xi SLR camera and a #25 red filter. I'd love to hear any thoughts on the subject. Thanks!

I don't know why not. It works with digital SLRs with a high-pass filter and on digital SLRs with the hot mirror removed and a high-pass filter put in its place.

Would love to see some of the work you do with it.

Have been shooting HIE with the lensbaby for a while. It works well. The first two are with red #29 and the 2.8 ring. The third without filter and 5.6 ring.

The tree was shot with the lensbaby squeezed all the way in, producing a bubble-like effect.

I do, however, get some very strange scanner artifacts sometimes (upper right quad).

Thanks a lot for your replies! Theresa, your images are great, especially the horse. The lensbaby perspective definitely adds an additional touch of the unexpected to shooting infrared... Craig, thanks for a very quick reply - I'm sure I'll be placing an order for a lensbaby very soon. It's a great creative tool, but on top of that everybody just seems to have a blast using it.
