Tomorrow Allison, Eva and I will be going with our friends Neil and Andrea on a lighthouse tour on Cape Cod. I wanted to have some special lenses to take with us for the day as well as with us next weekend when we go to a balloon festival. So I looked up lens rental online and found BorrowLenses.com. For $125.00 I was able to rent 2 great lenses. One is the LensBaby 3G and the other is Sigma 8mm Fisheye lens. To purchase these lenses would cost over $800.00 and by splitting the cost with Andrea we each get some time with the lenses to properly test them out for a fraction of the purchase price. And the great thing is that we got them for 2 weeks and the cost included shipping to and from BorrowLenses.com.
I tried out both lenses by taking some photos of Eva. The Photo-A-Day was taken with the LensBaby 3G. Notice how everything is soft and muted with a subtle focus on Eva’s eye. This lens allows you to manually pick your focus.
The Sigma 8mm Fisheye lens is different and gives you a nearly 180 degree view of the field of vision. This is going to be amazing while we photograph lighthouses and hot air balloons. But I practiced on Eva. Here is an example of a photo taken with that lens.
