The other day i posted that i’d just bought the Lensbaby circular fisheye. Well a couple of days ago i went out for a bit of a play with it. I decided to head to an abandoned farm i’ve visited a few times as i know the place reasonably well. Something i’ve already realised is that i’m going to have to think about composition differently.
How does something curve around the frame?
Is something to to look too distorted?
What, if anything, needs to be in the foreground?
These are just a few of things to think about. It’s not really any different to any photography, but the way the lens works does make you look in a new way when you’re not used to it.
In many ways this is how i’d frame it normally, but here it has to ft the circle.
I like the way the walls curve around the door, then the curves in the door itself. This is quite different to how it would normally work.
I’ve photographed this window a few times and never really been pleased with them. This just seems to work a bit beter withing the circle for some reason.
This is another one where i’ve never really felt happy with previous photos. In this one everything just seems to fit better in the frame.
It’s amazing how much you can get in with this lens…
