[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Freelensing, if youre not familiar with the term, can be described as a photographic free-style technique, for its rather risky and venturous purpose. It is nothing but taking a picture with a camera and a lens, but without mounting the lens on the camera. Freelensing is all about holding the lens in front of the camera to create extraordinary bokehs and sickening light effects. But just what are the results like and how do you exactly do it? Is it really a good idea and worth taking the risk?

Bonjour Anna,

So simple technique but simply amazing results. Althouh I can see how to do with a "normal" film SLR, I donnot see how you did to trigger a digital SLR without a lens mounted. So I learned something new today with your help!

My first thinking when I saw your picture was that it was taken with a "Lensbaby" optic. It is rather close but still quite different I guess.
the out-of-focus zone is nicely softened, and ths "focused" zone gives enough details also with softness. Your overall presentation has been well enhanced with this technique.
Defenitely a good idea and worth taking the risk.

Now I need to learn how to do the same, including f/stop and shutter speed experimentations.

Z ta technika nie jestem zaznajomiony, Twoje zdjecia bez tych chwytw bardzo mi sie podobaja. Ale rozumiem, że eksperymentujesz, i zycze powodzenia.

superbe "tableau nature morte"; la mise au point sur le vase droite est bien choisi

It seems that you have to get the basics right first (eg lighting, exposure etc). Then the experiment will give good results, or not. But in this case it has.

I think your experiment has produced an interesting result and a pleasing image. I have heard of this technique but never tried it. I suppose it is risky because you could drop the lens. I like the soft focus here and the interesting bokeh effect. Lighting and colours work well too.


bardzo oryginalne zdjêcie. Podoba mi siê kolor.
