This kit is quickest way to become a successful portrait Lensbaby photographer. Spend more time shooting - and less time learning - with this streamlined portrait kit.
This great starter kit includes the Composer with Double Glass Optic, the Soft Focus Optic, the Wide Angle/Telephoto Kit, the Creative Aperture Kit 2, System Bag and an Optic Swap Tool/Container.
The Composer delivers smooth selective focus photography with unparalleled ease. The Composer retains its position after being bent without a locking button, and is easy to use with one hand. Photographers do not squeeze the lens to focus, but simply tilt the lens to a desired angle and then focus with a traditional barrel focusing ring. The Composer is fully compatible with the Lensbaby Optic Swap System.
Soft Focus Optic is perfect for portraits. Images are overall soft and diffuse and are designed for a variety of soft focus applications. Photographers can control the degree of softness by changing the apertures.
The Lensbaby Wide Angle / Telephoto Kit allows you to change your Lensbaby's effective focal length to either 30mm or 80mm.
The 0.6X wide angle converts the Lensbaby from a 50mm focal length to a 30mm focal length. The 1.6X telephoto converts the Lensbaby from a 50mm focal length to an 80mm focal length.
The Lensbaby System Bag is a great addition to your camera gear. The removable and adjustable elastic straps inside, allow you to customize and carry your favorite Lensbaby shooting set up. The bag includes several convenient compartments including an outside zipper and an inside mesh sleeve, perfect for stowing your Aperture Kit, Macro Kit, or even extra media cards.
Velcro straps on the bottom of the bag allow you to attach one System Bag to another, further expanding your capacity to easily tote all of your Lensbaby gear. The Lensbaby System Bag also includes a removeable shoulder strap.
