Matt's loupy lens

As some of you may know, I’m a bit of a blur freak, and have used lensbabies for a couple of years. Last year I bought a couple of hand made bendy lenses from a lovely gentleman in the US, who is even more bendy mad than I! These lenses were made with bits and pieces, very low tech, and very difficult to use.

I struggled with them for a few months, but then was distracted by something else shiny….can’t remember what now…anyway, to cut a long story short, I spoke to Matt Penfold about bendy lenses, since he said he might try and make one. I mentioned that I had a lensbaby travelling the country, currently with Adriana, but that I also had these Melholga lenses that he might be interested in.

I posted one down to him, he did his Mcgyver thing on it, and all of a sudden I have an amazing little tool that works like a treat…..here are some images I shot today with the fabulous Miss Bertie Page

These images are straight from the camera….unbelievably gorgeous, and although a little vignetted….I’m just blown away by them!

Thanks Matt!!!!!!
