Being part of the news and documentary photography business in Israel I usually work with the classic “hard-core” equipment, Canon 5D Mark II camera and the 16-35, 70-200 L type lenses. The equipment is minimal, usually fitting two ‘Newswear’ pouches on my belt. Anything else stays home.
This is why I was excited to get something new, the Lensbaby lenses – a Composer Pro, Sweet 35 Optics, Soft Focus Optics and Fisheye Optics. While I never got to try them, I knew they were small and compact, something I can easily carry with me on my photographic journeys. I’ve read few reviews about those lenses but was always missing the unique angle of someone who took them on a news or documentary mission. I decided this would be the unique angle I will explore.
