What is Freelensing?

It’s not freelancing as some get confused with. Freelensing is a very unusual photography trick that not many people try out – and for good reason.

But considering we at iPhotography love a challenge it gives us the green light to try out a little bit of abstract photography.

Firstly, use a pretty basic camera to avoid damaging your expensive kit. The final result of freelensing is to, hopefully, capture some really dream-like, ethereal shots and discover along the way if it is as dangerous as everyone says it is.
