Q: How did you hear about Lensbaby, and what encouraged you to purchase a LB lens?

A: I read about Joseph Petzal on the internet. This guy invented the Petzval portrait optics which creates the similar effect as Twist 60 does. That's how I got to the LensBaby lens. (By the the way, Petzval is also Hungarian.)

 

Q:What was your journey to becoming a photographer like?

A: Sometimes full of tears, sometimes wonderful.

Q: Would you consider yourself an adventurous photographer, or do you tend to stay in your comfort zone?

A: Though I don't leave my hometown's area, when I find something that had not yet been photographed that way I do, it makes my heart beat.

 

Q: What else would you like to see from Lensbaby in the future?

A: Maybe a more robust 60 mm with the Twist effect.
