If you haven’t looked at the Lensbaby line-up lately, they have a pretty impressive array of options. The latest update to their arsenal includes a pair of kits designed to give portrait shooters a variety of options all in one shot.
The Portrait Kit costs $470 and comes with a standard Composer lens with Double Glass optic. You also get the Soft Focus optic, a Wide Angle/Telephoto Kit, the Creative Aperture kit (which changes the shape of the aperture for bokeh manipulation) and the system bag.
The $599 Ultimate Portrait Kit comes with the tougher, more precise Composer Pro lens body a Double Glass Optic as well a Scout lens with a Soft Focus Optic. The rest of the package is rounded out with the same Wide Angle/Telephoto KIt, Creative Aperture Kit and System Bag.
Both kits are availably now and will save you between $20 and $50 if you were going to buy everything separately. To celebrate the release, they’re throwing a photo contest for Senior Portrait photographers.
