Autumn leaves form a carpet around the Hazel in our back garden; 30 Oct 2009.

Used away from the horizontal, the fisheye lens has given the whole photo the appearance of showing an elevated ridge in the ground.  Back beyond the Hazel’s trunks, the patches of green lawn appear to be sloping down to either side.  And the nearest leaves seem to be bulging up towards the camera, and to be swirling in a circular fashion – which is an effect I like.

Technique: D700 with Sigma 15mm full frame fisheye lens; 800 ISO.


About Adrian Lewis
Photographer - using mono, colour and combinations of the two - many types of subject, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous, trying new ideas, working in multiple genres. And I've a weakness for Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    I like this very much indeed and it serves to remind me that I would love a fisheye lens!

      Thank you! Fisheyes are intriguing, and you need to distinguish between those that are full frame (as here) and those that produce only a circular image.

      That said, the general feeling seems to be that they should be used sparingly and I think I agree with that – their images are good to use occasionally, but if every other one is a fisheye shot, I think the effect might falter a bit. But, that’s just my view.
