The first photo I took with one of the Oakley filters. Kyle Strait at Red Bull Rampage, 2005 I think? This is a very flat version of the image, I don't think I did anything to it except the match the white balance to a photo without the filter. This assured that what we see is the effect of the filter and not the camera compensating for it. I shoot auto white balance outdoors most of the time, and correct as needed in post. This caused the image out of the camera to originally look very similar to images without the filter, just with a different WB. I wish I had access to the original of this old file so I could play with it some more, unfortunately my digital files here in Colorado only go back as far as 2006.

Being at the top of your game has its benefits, and over the years I've had the privilege of working with some great people and some great companies. This was a project that @steveblick from @oakleybike and I came up with about 11 years ago. The idea of shooting through sunglasses to get that same #Oakley lens look in a photo, taken one step further... There are a few limitations working with a curved optical lens that's designed to focus light on an eyeball instead of a camera sensor, so they don't get get used a lot. I'll post a couple of photos taken with these in the next few days.

  •   sarahfentontippie Cool! 5d
  •   ianhylands @kyledonnydonahue I would love to have the prizmtrail and prizmroad lens coatings on flat optical glass filters! Love those lenses! Not sure that will ever happen though... 5d
  •   ianhylands @jensstaudt we discussed flat lenses back when we made these, unfortunately it's something that would have to be custom made, and chances are it would be expensive. 5d
  •   jensstaudt @ianhylands Maybe if you have a good contact at Oakley you can hand them over some regular filters and let the coat them where they coat their lenses? 5d
  •   ianhylands @jensstaudt I think part of the issue is that with Oakley lenses it's more than just a simple coating. It was explained to me that the color is inherent to the lens, it goes all the way through. So just applying the coating to a clear lens wouldn't give you the real effect. 5d
  •   jensstaudt @ianhylands Ok I see - the "Airbrake" also has some lenses that are preshaped. Maybe try some of those regular MotoX flat lenses that need to be bend to fit into the frame? Anyway - I look forward to see what you get! 5d
