William Morton (of Morton Visuals photography) visited Nelson Photo Supplies in La Jolla today to lead a free seminar on Lensbabies.
Lensbaby is a sponsor of the Digital Photo Academy, for whom William teaches Photoshop classes and NIK Software workshops. On this Saturday morning, 23 attendees joined in while William demonstrated each of the Lensbabies along with their optics system – followed by an opportunity to take them out on a La Jolla photo safari. The students loved not only the opportunity to learn about all the Lensbaby options, but the chance to actually give a Composer a free “test drive.” Each participant returned and printed three of their favorite images captured with a Lensbaby, from which 10 winners will be selected to have 11x14s printed (courtesy of Nelson Photo) and displayed in the front window of the store for the month.
Organizer Tony Amat of Nelson Photo reported that the event was definitely a success, and is already planning a sequel at Nelson’s downtown (Little Italy) store in early November. If you haven’t tried them out, this is a great opportunity to add some creative images to your bag of tricks! Accompanying photos are courtesy of Tony Amat and Patrick Gooden.
