Freelensing

This is a little embarrassing, but I just read about freelensing for the first time a few days ago. Freelens is when you disconnect your lens from your camera and then hold the lens up to your camera at an angle.  It can create really interesting images.  I still need a lot of practice, but here are the images I took around my yard.

If you’ve taken freelens pictures, what do you think of this technique?  Do you have any tricks or tips?

On a side note, I’m really loving all these fall colors!

  1. Great Pics. However, with this technique you’re letting additional extraneous light as well as exposing your sensor to attract dust. I am not sure if you’ve heard of the Lensbaby lenses, but they do the same thing giving you much more control, and of course keeping your sensor protected. The body is like an accordion style spring. You focus by pulling in/out the spring. Then you may tilt the spring to get very interesting effects.

    I understand that you use a Canon camera. The Lensbaby Spark is a great inexpensive lens to play around with such ideas

    And yes, indeed, fall colors are always great!
