Re: Fisheye Street Photography

Thanks for the link - I had a go at this myself, maybe a year or so ago, but not something I would do on a regular basis. I use the 7.5 to elicit a reaction from anyone mad enough to look at my stuff.

All square, black and white, and all strongly processed.

And just in time for the Olympus 8mm 1.8 and 7-14mm.

I liked the woman on the bike.

Very hard to achieve something different with a camera these days, with so many millions of people out there taking photographs. At least these are a little different.

Re: Fisheye Street Photography

You certainly get involvement in the image with that technique, but used too much it does become a gimmick to my eye. Also, the Ready-Brek over-processing glows around sharp edges in all those get pretty irritating after a while. Two gimmicks in one photo set...
