Hey! I have a new toy. It’s a fisheye lens, which, if you can’t already tell, creates a fun distortion.
It’s especially perfect for architecture shots, because I can fit an entire building in the frame (without crossing the street and standing on top of another building) and it gives, in my opinion, a bit of the hugeness and awesomeness inherent in large buildings.
When I attempted to take a close-up flower shot, this was what happened – the camera was nearly pressed against the flower, and I wasn’t expecting my shadow to be on the edge!
Hopefully this will be fun for adding some magic to unexpected places in my life, like this staircase. Also, lenses like this are perfect for capturing huge skies or giant landscapes – something which I hope to prove in a week when I’m in Yosemite.
