From a Goldfish's Point of View

My first two rolls of Fisheye-photos are back from the lab, and it seems I've still got a lot to learn with this camera!

One of my first ever Fisheye-shots! Yay!

The first lesson is, you don’t really get that far with a 200-iso-film on grey autumn-days like they’re pretty common here nowadays. I guess I should have known that before.

The second is, close isn’t even close enough, so get closer! It’s weird for me, because I’m so used to stay away at least 0.8m from my subjects (years and years with the LC-A will do that to you). But yeah, closer is good!

And the third: watch the background and / or surroundings, it’s amazing how much the Fisheye sees!

Wow, you can even see my feet!

And last but not least a confession: I got the Fisheye at Photokina because I convinced the Analogue Arts Juror that I know a perfectly awesome location where I expect to take absolutely fantastic Fisheye shots. Now, the thing is, I just haven’t gotten around going there yet (deadline is november, so guess it’s not too bad. Yet.). And now autumn is showing its wet and grey side and I’m scared that I’ll end up creeping through wet and freezing woods only to get grey and murky shots… So keep your fingers crossed that the sun’ll come back for a bit, so I can get my location shots soon!

The entire album of a very grey day in the park is here (including some LC-A & Tunnelvision-Lens shots, too).

    hehehe mir gings am Anfang genauso mit der Fisheye, vor allem mit Dingen im Hintergrund (Stichwort BH xD)
    Deadline für die Photokina Locations ist November? Das wusste ich gar nicht...dann muss ich mich ja doch auch mal ran halten...

    immerhin ist bei Dir nicht immer die Schlaufe drauf, wie bei mir am Anfang, Harry vor der großen wall sieht ziemlich verdattert aus.....
