Photography Contest with Lensbaby

It’s summer time in Colorado, which means a wonderful opportunity to get your creative juices flowing at any number of events, local parks, or on a cool escape to the mountains! To celebrate summer photography, Englewood Camera is offering a unique photo contest, where participants can check out the very awesome Lensbaby Velvet 56 to push the creative boundaries of photography.

What is the Lensbaby Velvet 56? A take on the classic portrait lens–such as a 50mm f/1.2–the Velvet 56 has 3 primary uses. When used with its fastest apertures (f/1.6, f/2, f/2.8), the lens functions as a soft focus, creative effects tool. When used with mid-range apertures (f/4-f/16), the Velvet 56 offers a classic portrait-lens look, with sharp focus and creamy bokeh that rivals the Sigma Art lenses. Lastly, the Velvet 56 functions as a pseudo-macro lens, with a minimum focus distance of one-half an inch, or a 1:2 macro. So, whether you specialize in fine art photography, or portrait photography, this lens is a wonderful tool to add more creative kick to your images!
