Freelensed Fridays | 1.7 thru 1.13

Here at The Freelensed, we can’t say enough how honored we are, that week after week you open up your soul and share your art with us. It. Is. Incredible.

Looking through your photographs is a delight -pure joy. And we don’t ever want you to be discouraged or put down your camera. That was one reason why we chose to make it a weekly feature rather than a weekly top ten –it also allowed us to be flexible in the number of photographs we chose to share. Sometimes the number might be 5 or 8. This week it is a whooping 14! I just couldn’t stop. They were so incredible. We also want you to know that we run each week on a Wednesday-Tuesday schedule so that we have time to go through and relish your images before we post them on the Friday blog.

I hope you enjoy this frolic though these gorgeous images as much as I did!

xoxo, Rebecca

Welcome 2015! & a giveaway

10835389_1562202187353986_2535545934189734873_o

a pause. a moment. a celebration.

As much as there is something very loud about a giveaway, there is something very quiet about freelensing. it requires patience, focus, concentration and nimble fingers. when I go into a session with a client, I am never sure if I will freelens or not -but I always love it when I do- there is a way I am slower to click the shutter closed. My fingers move in a delicate dance. My breath slows and in my mind, I know I am knitting an image, a moment trapped in time, but the end result, I am even less sure of.

As a collective group, we feel so honored to have you all here: sharing your passions, your art, your hard work. It just seemed absolutely appropriate to host a giveaway once we passed the 2000 likes mark on our Facebook page….and even better that it is celebrating the New Year as well!

So here it is The Freelensed Giveaway!

One winner will receive:

*one digital pdf copy of the “freelensing {unlocked}” an all inclusive/comprehensive guide that will help you take this technique to the next level: http://www.lindseybergstrom.com/new-products/freelensingunlocked

 AND

*A set of 5×7 prints (7 total), one from each of the artists who works behind the scenes to keep this community going! ( Artists are listed below. Images for the giveaway are in the collage above). 

{Scroll through our photos (hopefully you find them inspiring) to down below where you can find the details on entering our giveaway}

 To enter, all you need to do is this: leave a comment below. It can be as simple as a “hello” or as deep as what your work, your art, means to you.

Of course we would love it if you shared this post and liked us on Facebook, but we didn’t want to be too pushy. We will draw the name from this comment section,  the list of folks who have shown us some love and likes on Facebook

We will use a random generator to produce a lovely name to find out who wins the prize!

The contest will close out next Wednesday on January 21st!

Happy Freelensing! xoxo

 

FREELENSED FRIDAYS | DECEMBER 31 – JANUARY 6

Well it’s over, the holidays that is, and thank goodness we can all get back to normal! Whatever that is. Freelensing is far from normal. Creating unique images each time is one of the things that always keeps me at it. Thrilled to have all of you creating alongside each other here at The Freelensed.  Coming up on Monday, we will be having a big announcement as we have crossed the 2000 ‘like’ mark and want to share the love we have for all of you that participate each week.  Thank you for continuing to inspire one another. Here are my picks this week…

Peace,

Amanda

FREELENSED FRIDAYS | DECEMBER 24 – DECEMBER 30

favorite photos often share a little bit of what we’re searching for to feed our souls. these spoke to mine. a reminder of new beginnings, the details of perhaps a long time tradition, and the treasured moments captured of a loved one completely in their own little worlds. thank you for sharing your beautiful work.
