fisheye lens photography

introduction

  • fisheye lenses are special lenses which are designed to give a 180deg field of view and extreme barrel distortion is a characteristic of these lenses
  • there are 2 main image types:
    • diagonal fisheye lenses - these images fill the full rectangular frame of your image
    • circular fisheye lenses - these lenses give a circular image thus the area of your frame outside of this circle will appear as black
  • fisheye lenses are very much a niche lens which is primarily used for creative photography
  • they are particularly useful for creating visually stimulating images, artistic or humourous imagery

here are a few photos from the net which demonstrate how these lenses can be used for effect
