Our very own fearless leader & Lensbaby inventor, Craig Strong, spoke at this year's Photographers Ignite at WPPI (the Wedding & Portrait Photography International trade show). Started by Kevin Kubota in 2010, Photographers Ignite is a wildly popular event at WPPI at which 12 or 13 photographers give 5 minute inspirational talks on a variety of photography-related topics. Check out Craig's presentation, Change Your Depth of Field, Change Your Life.
Have some burning questions that you'd love to ask Craig yourself? Join us for our first-ever Google Hangout on April 23rd at 4:00 pm (PST) on the Lensbaby Google+ page. Craig will be available to chat about Lensbaby, photography & life. We encourage you to send some questions beforehand as well - please email them firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll also take live Q&A during the hangout through our Twitter@Seeinanewway, #lensbabyhangout, and via comments on the page.
