A few months ago I was asked by the makers of Lensbaby to be a beta tester for a new lens being developed…. a lens that some of us artists have been dying to see made!!
I already own 2 amazing artistic lenses of theirs and LOVE how no matter what, they get me through a creative rut. The Lensbaby lenses that I own:
Now we can get the classic slice of focus effect in a brand new wider 35mm focal length! You can use the Edge 35 optic lens to place a sharp slice of focus through your image in any direction. You can draw the viewer’s eye, highlight details, and blur out distractions with this powerful tool.
I had taken the Edge 35mm and brought it to Arizona with me in February to use during a photo session with my incredible and gorgeous friend, Mary 😊
Days before I arrived, Mary had gotten a new GoldenDoodle puppy (Waffles 🐶) and could not leave him alone… so we decided to shoot the entire session indoors… this really put the Edge 35 to the test for me!! With the lowest f/stop being 3.5 on the lens I was so curious to see how well it could handle the low light and excited to use the 35mm length within the tight quarters of her home.
While I was on vacation in AZ, I tried to take the lens with me wherever I would go to experiment some more with it. Below you’ll see some examples while out with my son, my mom, and my mom’s Mini GoldenDoodle, Maggie 🐶
All in all, I’m extremely impressed with how tack sharp the lens is. Lensbaby, you never cease to amaze me ♥️
