    Test drive

    I bought this lens baby for my daughter for Christmas. She likes to take family pictures and portraits outdoors. Looking at how others applied the use of this lens I decided to order it. I took it out of the box and tried it out myself. Being the owner of several Lensbabies myself, I already understood the basics. This seems like an easy Lensbaby to learn on and it seems like it will give the effects she wants to achieve in her sunlit and backlit photography.
