Event info

‘Demystifying the Lensbaby'

An Hour long Talk via Zoom, addressing key points on what Lensbaby is all about, with an explanation of the optics and lenses available. With Q and A to follow.

This is aimed at those who have heard the name, seen some images and want to know what it’s all about. This would be a good introduction into the Lensbaby world, you might be looking to buy one or already have one tucked away which you haven’t got to grips with yet.

This talk is prelude to a three part course Polina is leading starting on January 27th which is only for 8 participants. If successful, this Workshop, could well be repeated.

Polina Plotnikova  FRPS is an Ambassador for Lensbaby, a company that produces a range of amazingly creative lenses and optics. Polina says, ‘For me, Lensbaby definitely was “love at first sight”, and I have tried to spread the joy of using their lenses and optics for ages now, talking about it to anyone who would listen ‘  And she has offered a talk to the South East Centre about  ‘Demystifying the Lensbaby a brief introduction into Lensbaby – new kid on the block”
