Lensbaby storytelling challenge and GIVEAWAY!

When Lensbaby recently contacted me and asked if I’d be interested in participating in their 2012 Story Telling Challenge, I was all about it! Add in a giveaway to boot and it just about made my summer.

I decided to do my 2012 Story Telling Challenge using the amazing Edge 80, the newest Lensbaby optic, and to capture my twins doing their morning routine of animal care.





Lensbaby and The Bloom Forum would love for you all to participate in the 2012 Story Telling Challenge! If you do, please share the link to your blog post on the Lensbaby Facebook page.

And now for our Edge 80 Optic GIVEAWAY! To be entered into the giveaway to win this optic, please make sure to like the Lensbaby Facebook page and The Bloom Forum Facebook and leave a comment on this post! Contest closes Friday, August 24, 5pm PST. Good Luck!

    I just got back from a week at the coast, and I could not possibly have shot almost a thousand pictures without my lensbaby composer pro, and double glass optic. And I definitely needed my 300 mm, and my lensbaby macro lenses. My next purchase, though, is the fisheye. I always have to borrow my friend’s. I really NEED that optic:) LOL! And I also want the extra macro attachments available now.
