For Xmas, My GF got me the creative aperture kit for my LB2. I will be receiving MORE blanks in the next day or so, due to their inclusion in the wide angle/tele/macro kit.

So far, i've made a really crappy spiral, a paw print and a failed pinhole (which i'm going to alter to something else). I'm at a loss for ideas as to what I should make with all these blanks.

I'm looking for suggestions!

Also, Is it possible to do a zone sieve or zone plate?

Check out the main gallery with the filter set to look at Creative Aperture shots: Lensbaby Gallery Filter set for Creative Aperture. Hopefully that will spur some ideas.

Here's another one: Cut out a Mikey Mouse shape and then go shooting on the 4th of July. Sell resulting images to Disney for millions!

Check out Bjorn's (rannestad's) gallery here:


Some of the best, subtle use of creative apertures IMHO.

Also some good info in this earlier thread:


Hope this helps...

The key is play, experiment, have fun...blank aperture disks are cheap.
