Everyone knows that the Lensbaby can create beautiful blur, but did you also know that they can be really sharp, too? I will admit that takes some practice to get tack-sharp in-focus shots every time, but I thought it would be good to show you guys that yes … it can be done.

I try to use my Lensbaby often, and I’m getting to the point where I can focus pretty quickly and accurately … well, I at least get it close. :) Whenever I achieve the level of sharpness like the images above it reminds me of the potential of that little lens. I plan on integrating my Lensbaby into my photo-shoots much more frequently in the near future, especially with my stock and food images.

The images above are a cropped-in area of the full-res file when viewed at 100% to show the level of sharpness that can be achieved with the Lensbaby Composer & Double Glass optic. They are both only very lightly edited using Adobe Lightroom, and no sharpening was added to either images.
