So I took the Lensbaby Control Freak with Double Glass Optic out for a spin the other night. Not too many pictures came out, but since Sydney was in ultra-spaz mode, it isn’t the fault of the lens.

Once the dog finally ran out of steam, I was able to snap the above image. I can definitely see that once I get familiar shooting with the Control Freak, it is going to be one of my favorite lenses… I already have many ideas for both still and video shots. I need a system to start keeping my ideas tracked… Hmmm… iPad perhaps?
Here is a creative timelapse video created by Shinnosuke.
I am a fan of both the creative Lensbaby systems, as well as timelapse videos. I am looking forward to experimenting with my 7D and Control Freak to creating stills, timelapse, and video. Shorts like these fill me with a lot of inspiration. Shinnosuke did a great job editing this video together, as well as capturing a night time skyline… Peaceful but energetic at the same time.
So I got a new gizmo this weekend. I finally ordered a Lensbaby Control Freak (since I am one), and it arrived in the mail this weekend! Needless to say, I am a bit excited now that it has finally arrived. Unfortunately, I am not very mobile right now due to the accident. That said, I did what I could to get a few quick shots in before I had to start work this week…
Here’s an example…
