Put a fisheye in front of your phone and keep looking at the screen. You will find so many interesting shapes and compositions that you would normally completely miss. It just offers so much creativity.
A fisheye can also be super useful in getting shots that would normally require lots of trouble and are sometimes nearly impossible to make with a normal extreme wide angle lens.
Why use Fisheye Lens?
Distortion can be annoying. But it doesn’t have to be. Use fisheye distortion to your advantage. Find scenes in which the fisheye effect actually adds something to the scene. When used right, fisheye distortion can be pleasing to the eye and can be referred to a normal wide-angle lens. Try to use distorted lines and curves as a way to lead the viewer into an image.
‘Defishing’ is possible!
Sometimes fisheye lenses can be used as extreme wide angles. By putting the horizon in the middle the horizon line is generally almost straight. With certain tools, the curved lines can be straightened to get a super wide angle image.
Great for behind-the-scenes shots
Create a super wide view and fun angle.
A fisheye lens in the right hands can create some imagery that wouldn’t have been possible with normal lenses. Try to keep your fisheye lens on your camera for a longer period of time and point it everywhere. You will be amazed on how many interesting things you can see on the screen of your camera compared to what you see with your own eyes.
