Lens Pets

February 03, 2011

In January a couple of new arrivals flew in from the states and joined the Collyer HQ. I’d read all about Lens pets a while ago in one of my photography magazines and knew that they had to be added to my kit. They are such a simple concept, made from a scrunchie, with colourful felt sewn on to them, they make the most delightful add-ons to any camera lens. Perfect for a family or baby shoot and much better than looking at a black scary camera lens.

So without further ado, I shall introduce you to Mr Crab and Mrs Owl, both seen below settling into their new surroundings. They also decided to model the 70-200 and the 35mm lens to show you just how cool they can look.

I’m looking forward to using them at my next family shoot, I’m sure they’ll be a massive hit. My kids won’t leave them alone.

Aww I love these! I made one myself a while back and used it when I was a school photographer in infant and nursery schools, it was a big hit!
