Journey Story: Julie Scholz

  • 1 min read

Welcome to Lensbaby Journeys. We have asked photographers to write about their journey with photography and with Lensbaby, however they want to approach it. Each piece will come directly from an individual photographer in their own words, accompanied by their photographs. Our hope is that these journey stories will resonate with you, inspire you, and push you forward on your own path.

What is your Lensbaby journey, Julie?

I fell in love with Lensbaby when I got my 2.0 many years ago. Lensbaby allows me to express how I see the world.

That love has only grown over the years as I've added the Composer Pro Optic Swap System, Velvet 56 and Twist 60 to my bag.

The Velvet 56 is my go to "walking around" lens, I love that it has macro capabilities but is versatile enough for portraits and even some landscapes, not to mention that on my full-frame camera there's a bit of a swirl at the edges.

I have featured many of my Lensbaby shots during exhibits - they're usually a big hit!
