A Creative Tool

I know that I have referred to the Lensbaby on other posts, but today I was meeting with a few photo friends who together with myself will be hanging an exhibit of our Lensbaby photography sometime next month.  The Lensbaby is a system of optics and lenses which hold the optics, most of which produce photos with a somewhat unique blur and zoom look to them.  I happen to like the optics which also have a “sweet spot” of clear focus that can be placed just about anywhere in the photo by “bending” the lens.  Here are a couple of photos, both taken at Hale Farm and Village, that I will be preparing for the exhibit.

The Oaken Bucket was found outside of the small log cabin at Hale Farm  The Gray Barn sits just off the road which separates the 2 sides of Hale Farm and Village.

About Kolman Rosenberg

My interest in photography began as a college newspaper and yearbook photographer during the stormy 1960s and 1970s. I was influenced by many of the great photojournalists and documentary photographers such as W. Eugene Smith, Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, Gordon Parks, Margaret Bourke-White and other black and white photographers of Life Magazine and the earlier Farm Security Administration. Though many of these photographers documented the horrors of war and the plight of poverty, they also showed me the dignity and adaptability of human beings in their desire to prevail.

  2. This post really gives me the idea — the feeling — of what the filter can do. It’s an interesting concept.
