Dirty Mind

Apologies in advance, but these were both shot using a Nikon albeit with the FL-36R attached for lighting. The problem was I had to either use a Nikon with the smaller sensor crop (and so wider angle of view) or else cut a hole in my washing machine to push the camera further back.

Both shot using the Falcon 8mm fisheye. Both have been cropped a little so I am going to have another go using the E-30, not least because the articulated screen will allow me to properly compose rather than just guess where the camera is pointing and also it will hopefully provide some stability to the positioning with the screen swung out. Having a camera rattling around the inside of a washing machine ain't much fun.

Both processed in LR using a 'Dragan'-type preset together with sharpening, a bit of CA adjustment (the Falcon/Samyang 8mm is not too bad for CA) and some clipping to isolate the head from the body.

Thanks for looking.

Re: Dirty Mind

What's your next shot? Your head in the oven? Good grief, this could get out of hand. They look great! Looking forward to seeing what result you can get with the E30.

I fiddle with violins (when I'm not fiddling with a camera).
