The Bloom Collective | Freelensing, Tilt Shift, Lensbaby or Alternative Lens I

I am a sucker for free-lensing. There’s something delightful in bending and blurring your world to reveal one bit and hide another. Or to use that blur to evoke a feeling. As an extra bonus, the imperfections and unexpected outcomes make it a welcome break from my normal pixel-peeping digital workflow. It’s just fun. So much fun that I invested in a tilt-shift lens so I could play at the beach without destroying my camera. Get that lens off your camera and go play!
