Adventures in Freelensing

Freelensing is the technique of detaching the lens from the camera and holding it by hand up to the lens mount and manipulating the focal plane to create an image. It gives a really cool affect and can be fun to mess around with. I haven’t mastered it well enough to use with portraits although some photographers do so beautifully. For now I’m practicing on flowers and I gotta say I am in love with the results.

The natural dark edges and light leaks create genuinely unique one of a kind images and the fun thing is that I never know what I’m going to get. 
I think the first two are my favorite. But then again I really like the second white one. And the last one is pretty too so who knows?
Do you have a favorite?
