Filters specifically enhance bendable DSLR lenses
Photoshop filter developer and photographer Kevin Kubota has released a new set of image filters called The Lensbaby Pak, specifically designed to enhance the artistic effects of photos created using Lensbaby's bendable, pre-soft-filtered optical lenses. The package offers 15 new Photoshop filters with names like "Dad's Old Camera" and "Bollywood Intensity" to connote the intended effect.
The company recently held a contest where participants would send shots created with Lensbaby lenses, and winning entries would be enhanced by Kubota using the effects software. A three-part video of the winning entries and how the software was used to enhance them is available on Kubota's web site. The set requires Photoshop CS3 or higher and sells for $39.
