The World in Fish-eye

Posted by Kristan Wednesday, February 17, 2010

One of the many interests I have in Photography is distortion. Distortion is art, and it gives a more dramatic effect to a simple and dull photo. Wide-angle and fish-eye lenses are the main reason why distortion exists in photography.Equipped with a basic DSLR and a good fish-eye filter lens, I was able to apply distortion to my shots.

This is a very simple definition of Fish-eye in Photography:

Of or being a wide-angle photographic lens that covers an angle of about 180°, producing a circular image with exaggerated foreshortening in the center and increasing distortion toward the periphery.
I've got so many fish-eye shots, and I think one blog post won't contain all photos, so I just select some clear shots.

1.) Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage. A shot during our parade. I zoomed the lens that's why the distortion is just low.


2.) RD Plaza, Gensan. Another shot from our parade. Since I zoomed-in the lens, the distortion lessened. One thing, the sky was overexposed.

3.) Sunny Highway. A shot from last month. I was riding a public-utility vehicle when the highway became an interesting scenery to shoot.


4.) Hope Springs. A shot taken from the place of a firework incident. The tree was half-burnt. You could see less distortion here because of zooming in, see the clouds.


Shooting in fish-eye is quite exciting. You get to see distorted sceneries. So, go, give it a try!
