Lensbaby but Different

Today I inserted the f5.6 ring in place of the f4 ring. Up until now I have been practicing focusing without bending the lens. So today I took some unbent shots and then tried some bent ones. This bending thing is a whole new ballgame. Practice, practice, practice!

The idea of the Lensbaby is to select the part of the image you want to be in focus and bend the lens so that will happen. You want sharp focus at the point of interest and a smeary effect in the rest of the image.
