Always on the lookout for novel ways to take interesting photographs, I recently became the proud owner of a Lensbaby Composer.

For those of you who are not familiar with it, it is a relatively cheap manually focusing lens that comes with a set of aperture rings that make the sweet spot smaller or larger. The front of the lens is mounted on bellows, so that you can point it at whichever part of the frame you wish. Different models fit most types of SLR cameras.

The results are amazing, normally interesting and cause you to think, “how did they do that?”

It’s incredible that we spend a fortune getting the best glass we can for our cameras and then something like this comes along and wins our hearts through an interesting effect rather than the ultimate in image quality.

Have a look at the General section of the Gallery on this site.  The Christmas Tree image was taken with a Lensbaby.
