Fisheyes

One of my favorite purchases has been my Sigma 4.5mm fisheye. I take it with me as part of my kit and try to shoot with it to see what I can do — and when it’s good, it’s very good.

But what to do with all these round images?

Here are a few different ways I’ve found to express my content with the fisheye. These are from a theme park in Noboribetsu, an Edo style village. In one location are mannequins set up to approximate the way people in the Edo period used to live. Seeing the actual dimensions with figures really brought that world to life in my mind.

  1. Steven, I like that effect! I have fish eye in Photoshop but it does not look like this. ❤

    • I know what you mean in PS. Actually, I like the effect you can do with it in PS.

      The cool thing about the lens is that it protrudes about half-an-inch. You have to be super careful in order to not damage it when it’s out and in use. You should invest in one. 🙂

What's that you say? I can't quite hear you. Do you mind writing that down here? ;)
