Photography and Gear #25 | PPN | Lens Lens Baby! Creativity and lenses with Craig Strong - founder of Lensbaby

We have received a lot of questions about finding photography inspiration during the dull and grey winter days. And while the gear is usually not what takes the first spot on our shows in order to find new creativity, sometimes a unique piece of gear can help you to see your surroundings in a new way.

And one company that has been dedicated to making this kind of gear and accessories is Lensbaby. Marco invited Lensbaby founder and CCO Craig Strong to the show to get some behind the scenes insight on how Craig came up with the initial idea of the first Lensbaby and how the company and product line has evolved since then. And which of the current lenses will help you to achieve what effect.
