Group Description

Welcome to the Homemade Lens Group.

This group is for photographers who make their own lenses or who modify commercial lenses. This includes...

DIY optics (lenses made from optical lens elements, magnifying glasses, lenses recycled from telescopes, binoculars, etc; lenses made from non-optical materials such as found glass or ice)

Hacked lenses (commercial camera lenses which have been optically modified by adding/removing/reversing elements to change the optical properties of the lens)

Repurposed lenses (lenses being used for a completely different purpose or format than originally designed. Examples: using an enlarger lens on a DSLR; adapting an SLR lens for an iPhone)

DIY tilt-shift lenses (commercial lenses that have been mechanically modified to allow tilting and/or shifting)

Please submit photos using your homemade lenses as well as photos of your homemade lenses. And Please add as much detail about the lenses as possible, so we can all learn.

Finally, feel free to ask questions. That's another way we all learn.
