Would you know this photo was taken with my fisheye lens if I didn’t tell you? Maybe if you look very closely, but I don’t think most viewers would notice. I like that. I’m pretty pleased with that lens because the fisheye effect is not overwhelming and I can often put together a photo that works and doesn’t scream “fisheye.” I always prefer if the methods don’t intrude on the image. I think I’m going to keep having fun with this lens and I’m really looking forward to seeing what I can do with it in some slot canyons out in the southwest the next time I make it out there.
This is, of course, old friend and model Ikaros Ex on our hot hike in Kentucky a couple weeks ago. This was before we got to the waterfall that was our destination and shortly before we encountered that giant bug on the trail.
