Lensbaby Burnside

Lensbaby Burnside review – wacky, but potentially wonderful

It’s been years since I’ve played with a Lensbaby lens. But whilst I don’t partake, I do keep up with what they’re up to – I find their slightly nutty lens ideas fascinating. I also enjoy the fact that even if I don’t feel a need for the sort of images their kit creates in my life, there are many other people who do. In a world filled with photographers desperately hunting for objective perfection in lenses, the likes of Lensbaby (and Lomography for that matter) give me some faith that modern photography isn’t entirely lost to those who operate at around 200% in the photo editing software.
