Playing with a fisheye lens

Today my fisheye lens arrived. It’s not a whole lens for an SLR camera; rather an “add-on” lens that screws into the filter thread on my Fuji S9600 or any other lens.

I’ve tried a few ideas with it, and been as creative as one can possibly be in a boring flat on a lazy evening.

First, a badly-focused self portrait:


And an uninspiring shot from my balcony – a view that has appeared on this blog many times before.

A view over Kingswood

I think I’m going to have fun with this lens.

    Could you ironically take a picture of a fishes eye, with the fish eye?
