    Soft Focus Meniscus Lenses

    Soft focus meniscus lenses, using the historical design originated by William Wollaston (England, 1812).

    Superb for portraiture, pictorial style landscapes, table top, wet plate, alternative, and abstract photography.

    Available in 135mm up to 500mm focal lengths, unmounted or custom mounted on a lensboard of your choice. All lenses are supplied with five aperture stop cards (aka: "Waterhouse Stops"), front filter ring, and lens cap.

    Full details, prices, and examples of photographs using these are lenses are at my website:

    William Wollaston (England, 1812).

    He was a very interesting character and believe his contemporaries use to refer to him as the Pope. I think he invented the camera lucida from seeing a virtual image from a crack in his shaving mirror.

    “The contemplation of things as they are, without error or confusion, without substitution or imposture, is in itself a nobler thing than a whole harvest of invention”

    Francis Bacon

    These lenses are tools for the artist.
    They can close the eyes to reality, then re-open them to the imagination.
    See differently.
