Playing with a Fisheye Lens on my Phone
This morning I was out at Alowyn Gardens to have a meeting, but I went early so I could wander around the gardens taking photos. Just before the meeting, I put the fisheye lens on the phone to take a few photos.
Most of the photos I took were taken with my DSLR and macro lens. It was a stunning morning for macro. The sun was behind a sky full of clouds and there was almost no wind. Really, it was fantastic for it. They are the conditions that I always want for this kind of photography.
It seems all I’m doing lately is taking macro photos. Not that I mind too much, I love it, but I do worry that you guys will get sick of them. It does seem to be the right time of the year for it here in Australia.
I have no idea why autumn seems to be a good for it. I do love Melbourne in autumn, it is the best time of the year really. Though the weather is starting to change, we are still being hit with hot weather, obviously not as hot as it is in January, but still hot. Good for the solar panels.
The fisheye lens, whether for the camera or the phone, is a lot of fun. I love them. I don’t know if others like the photos, but they can be really interesting. You never really know what you will get and I like that kind of photography. It is interesting to see the world in a different way. Change the perspective.
This is a special lens from Struman Optics. I have played with it before, but not for a while. I just took a few photos to see how they would look.
Here is a small gallery with some photos. I didn’t take many.
