Free the Lens: Finding Creativity Through Freelensing

Freelensing is the art of detaching the lens from the camera body to create dream-like imagery through slivers of focus. In this interactive class, Diana will talk about freelensing, show her own work and share some inspirations. You will be given a demonstration on how to freelense and how to set up your camera to practice the technique. Diana will also give you a live demonstration on how to create self-portraits using freelensing.
