Picture This! -- Our Next Assignment

It's What's Up Front That Counts: Lens Effects--Super Wide, Fisheye, Distortion, & Super Depth Of Field
Our Picture This! assignment for this month is "It's What's Up Front That Counts." There's no doubt that putting a special lens on your camera helps you see the world in different ways. Want to reinvigorate your vision? Try one of many optical options. Use a fisheye or supplemental lenses to give yourself a super-wide or super close-up view. Want to make images that the unaided eye can't see? Get close with a wide angle lens to foreshorten your subject and stop down to f/22. So give it a whirl and send us images that show that what's up front plays a big part.

This photograph was made with a Lensbaby selective focus lens mounted on a Canon EOS 20D digital SLR.
