Oh Baby! A Lensbaby Adventure

I have always been intrigued by the ads for Lensbaby lenses, so I borrowed Alison's Lensbaby and decided to give it a shot and blog about my experience. I shot inside in low light situations and outdoors in bright light, both moving and non-moving subjects. While I got some great shots, the Lensbaby was nearly impossible to use with one hand and I definitely needed to be using a tripod in low light situations. My take: Not worth the money or the effort you will spend trying to master this lens. I was kinda bummed by the whole experience until I saw an ad for the new Lensbaby Composer. The ad touted the ability to use this lens with one hand! Alas, hope was not lost. I can't wait to get my hands on this one.
