Journey Story: Mina Mimbu

  • 2 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, Mina?

I got into photography after my son was born. Like most mom-photographers, I bought my first camera because I wanted to document my children.

I quickly fell in love with photography. Photography allowed me to see the world differently and find the beauty in things I had never noticed before.

Growing up in Japan, I always loved animation films. I can't make films but they always inspire me to be creative with my photographs.

I like photographs that make you feel something and want to think what it is about. I am big fan of Kristina Dominianni. I discovered Lensbaby from her work. Her photos were so magical, beautiful, and different that I had to know what lens she used.

I own a couple of Lensbaby lenses now, but my absolute favorite is the Edge 50. It truly lets me see the world in a totally new way. I fall in love with the lens every time I use it.
