Shoot like a Metro-Savvy Gnome with the Fisheye

It is expected for someone like a globetrotting gnome to have a knack for anything analogue and if you're envious of how these cosmopolitan creatures snap their surroundings, here's how to do it!

With your Fisheye or Fisheye 2 camera, try aiming your camera either from the grass or a skyscraper field up front with your subjects in the background. This will give a great effect and a sense of dwarfism from the point-of-view of the photographer, making it seem that things are really huge!

This should really be fun as the Fisheye lens will distort the view – the photos will make it seem like you’re a little Gnome with the grass so tall and people so gargantuan! Sometimes when you think about it, it’s actually fun and great to be miniscule!
