Freelensing in May

Freelensing can be a very experimental but this month I took it to a whole new level.

Mother’s Day weekend I was back in Minnesota visiting family and I went to pull my camera out of my camera bag and only half of my 50mm lens came with it. My 50mm is my freelensing lens and the poor thing has been with me from day one of my photography journey so it was not a huge surprise that it finally bit the dust but it was pretty sad.

There were 2 things I could do with my now broken 50 mm lens. I could either dump it in the garbage or see what kind of photos I could still create with it. The sensor in the lens could no longer communicate with my camera so the only way to use it was to freelens with it. I had a lot of fun messing around with it. The photos have a very soft focus to them because the glass in the lens no longer matches up perfectly but I think I’m okay with that.

Here are a few of my favorite broken lens images from this past month.
