Hi all, new to this forum. I'd been eyeing the Lensbaby for a while and decided to take the jump and go for it just over a week ago. I must say, it takes a little getting used too. I'm using it on my Panasonic GH1 with a nikon adapter so I think it makes the effective focal length 100mm rather than the normal 50mm. I also purchased the zone plate / pinhole optic but certainly need to practice with it more. All in all, it's been a really enjoyable experience and look forward to more experimentation with it.

I'm off to look around the galleries here for some more inspiration.

All the best,

Matt.

looks like you are doing a pretty good job getting the hang of it - really well done and interesting images - my favorite is probably the two trees - love the simplicity and grain - welcome to the forum.

Great stuff. Love the compositions and B+W treatment. The first two are my favorites but they each have a great mood and character to them.

Interesting series of shots subjected to some moody processing.

Welcome!

I would have to say you've got the hang of it! I've found some inspiration in your photos! Mostly the second one. Would like some info on it, if you don't mind.

Welcome!

Would like some info on it, if you don't mind.

I'm not sure what info you're after but it was shot using the double glass optic. It was shot in an alley and the focus is on a rail that runs down one of the walls. If you need any other info just ask.

Cheers, Matt.

All are nice but I really love the last three--great tone--great feel.
