I have been looking all over google for how to do the free-lensing effect. I didn't know it was called free-lensing, I thought it was a preset or something I did in editing. I contacted my friend Janelle, who pointed me in the right direction. I grabbed my camera, ran outside and tested this new knowledge out. And it worked!! I am SO excited I have found this, and can't wait to start implementing it into future shoots. Here are some of my attempts- I keep forgetting to take the watermark off. :/
p.s here is a tutorial.
