    “Seeing In A New Way”. . . It is the big quetion in a lot of new photographer’s lifes. How do I see in a new way; be able to see the beauty in the world. I belive that The Lensebaby helps you see that. It is able to create a “sweet spot” of focus in a photographers picture. It helps emphisis the beauty in the world. Ansle Adams once said “Whe you photograph a subject in color you are photographing their clothes; but when you photograph them in black and white you are hptographing their souls.” If you want to see in a new way you have to be able to come to the relization that seeing in a new way is not somehtin that just happenes. You have to train your eyes to see the beauty in the world. A big question in a photographer’s life is “how can I see all the beauty in the world”.

    seeing in a new way to me means growing. If you continue to look and see the obvious then you are missing the potential for creativity and growth.

    Seeing differently is being attune. The world is amazing place, I love using the lensbaby to help me realize that through my photos.

    Seeing in a new way, to me, means seeing things outside of the box. It’s easy for me to things how I’ve always seen them. Looking straight on, with no creativity. But when you take the time to lay down, get up, tilt…find new angles, then you are seeing a new way that you wouldn’t have noticed before.

    I think photography is such a great medium to be able to help others see in a new way. When I’m taking a picture, my thought is always “how can I get others to see what I’m seeing that they normally may not see or notice?” Whether it’s capturing the tiniest of details in a macro shot, using lighting and lenses to create different effects, or working with color, you have the oppportunity and ability to change even the most mundane of things so that people are seeing in a new way.

    When I was 16 and ready to get my drivers license, I was denied, because I was legally blind. After receiving my first pair of glasses (at 16 years old) I saw things in a whole new way. “Seeing in a new way” is what I want to happen to those who view my photos. I want them to have the same feeling I had when I received my first pair of glasses…like they are really seeing for the very first time.

    I didn’t learn to see in a new way until my first child was born. Then it seemed as if the whole world was new. Life was more colorful. Love was much sweeter. A smile was so much more meaningful. I try and capture that new way of seeing everyday in my photography. I try and see the deeper side of human beings, the more beautiful side. The honest side. Seeing in a new way for me is seeing things the way a child would see them, the way my daughter sees the world everyday of her life; unconditionally lovely.

    First off, I thought those pictures taken with the Lensbaby are beautiful. I the photographer captured what is intended by “seeing in a new way” I think it’s about focus, both literally with the camera, but also about where you are focusing your mind and thoughts on the shot and what the viewer in the end sees. All of those photos had a real central spot surrounded by blurred background. Seeing in a new way then is living in the moment, forgetting your surroundings, and enjoying it.
