First images from the Lens Baby Velvet 56 mm

This year at WPPI, I purchased the Lens Baby Velvet 56mm FE lens and I wanted to share a few images that I took. A full review is in the works but I couldn’t wait to show some of these images. Check them out below!

The Lensbaby Velvet 56 is a full frame lens that is all manual focus. One thing that a lot of people don’t talk about is how sharp this lens is.

From the Lensbaby site, Look into Velvet 56 for a vision of the world you’ve never seen before. With a buttery smooth, vintage glow at wide apertures, you’ll create rich, dreamy, and intricate images—perfect for everything from magical macro scenes to intimate, soulful portraits.
