Lensbaby Artistry Themes

Update on  Lensbaby Artistry Theme Challenge (Facebook group). Lensbaby Artistry is run by Doug Sahlin and Roxanne Sahlin, photographers at Doug Plus Rox Photography, also Doug has released in 2012 a digital book dedicated to Lensbaby, titled Mastering the Lensbaby: A step-by-step guide to mastering your Lensbaby and becoming a more creative photographer.
Dear Lensbaby Artists,
It is our pleasure to welcome you to the Lensbaby Artistry group, where kindred spirits can interpret one of the following themes each month from April 1, 2013 until April 30, 2014. We're excited that Craig Strong, Chief Creative Officer and Co-Founder of Lensbaby has agreed to pick what he thinks are the best three images submitted each month.

All images must be created after April 1, 2013 using a Lensbaby optic. Please include the following information with each image you upload:
▪ Lensbaby optic used to create the image
▪ Aperture (Sweet 35 and Edge 80) or Aperture Disk
▪ The reason why you decided to create the image
▪ Any other pertinent information you'd like to share with the group
▪ Do your artistry in the camera through composition, choice of subject and vantage point.
▪ Please keep post processing to a minimum. Converting images to black and white is acceptable, but please refrain from adding textures and doing extensive post-processing with 3rd party filters.
▪ All Lensbaby photographers are welcome to post images in this group, but due to the high cost of shipping and export restrictions, the physical gifts will only be eligible for Lensbaby photographers in the contiguous United States but we have plenty of digital gifts for those not eligible for gifts that we have to ship.

Each photographer who chooses to participate can upload two images each month. Remember that once you submit your two image for a theme in a month, you cannot use that theme again. This is a family group so please post only images you'd feel free to show to your children.

Lensbaby Artistry Themes
