Homemade Lens

For some time I have been experimenting with homemade lenses. Using the single double convex element from a magnifying glass, adapted to fit a Rollei SL66, I shot my first test roll yesterday. "The most appealing features of the lens are the glowing highlights, limited depth of field and the soft focus effect towards the edges."


  1. Have you gone all soft Mr.Brennon! Great images especially with those glowing highlights. Particularly enjoy the curved fence ones. Sounds like you are having quite some fun! All the best Mark
