Lensbaby, inside out

Lensbaby, inside out
by Miscellaneous Trainers

The creation of the Lensbaby came partially out of Craig’s frustrated feeling that the SLR lenses on the market at that time limited his creativity. He began experimenting with making his own lenses, and the Lensbaby was the result. Craig is now widely known for his invention of lenses that feature a “sweet spot” of focus surrounded by gradually increasing blur.
In this video training, you will get a look behind the scenes and discover what Lensbaby is all about. Watch Craig talk about how he invented the Lensbaby and then learn as he introduces you to the entire line of lenses and optics from the Portland, OR headquarters. Once you have finished the in-house briefing on the ingenious Lensbaby System, then the fun begins! Join Craig Strong and Kirsten Hunter as they head out to Portland, OR, Laguna Beach and Balboa Beach, CA for some fun in the sun and a hands-on lesson.
