Lensbaby Intensive: Creativity Unleashed
with Charles Needle
February 14 - February 16, 2013

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.

Change the look and feel of your photography with revolutionary selective-focus tools by Lensbaby. Whether you've never heard of their creative effects camera lenses or you are already familiar with them, Charles, a self-described Lensbaby guru, shares tips and techniques for controlling with precision the “sweet spot” area of sharp focus. Combining entertaining lectures, challenging assignments, supportive image evaluations, and lots of hands-on photographing opportunities, he takes an in-depth approach to demonstrating and exploring various photographic styles, employing the entire Lensbaby product line of lens bodies, interchangeable optics, and accessories.

Charles takes you through myriad topics, including: focus-bracketing, to bring the viewer's attention to different parts of a scene; converting your optics for macro, wide-angle, fish-eye, or telephoto use; controlling depth of field; using Lensbaby to create round bokeh; methods of achieving subtle distortion; and using the Lensbaby to shoot video.

You also have the opportunity to experiment with Lensbaby products yourself, making use of a variety of locations in and around Santa Fe’s picturesque environs. (There will be plenty of demo units on hand, so there’s no need to worry if you don't currently own a Lensbaby!) Get out of a photographic rut and expand your creative vision!
