Uses of the Lensbaby Double Glass Optic

The Double Glass Optic is highly flexible and provides the photographer with a full range of creative possibilities. Since the dreamy blur is not so diffused as compared to the other optics, the Double Glass Optic simply gives the effect of motion or isolation. The ability to keep your subject tack sharp is also great when you wish to effectively highlight a certain aspect of your photograph. Your subject remains clearly isolated from the rest of the picture, and thus is a great optic to work with on dramatic moments and striking scenery.
