Sleeping With The Fishes
(hey, don’t ask me…how YouTube doesn’t have this scene in English, I have no idea.)
While shooting the Sons of Ireland Polar Bear Plunge on January 1, I took the opportunity to rent a Tokina Fisheye 10-17 F3.5-4.5 DX lens. I thought it could give me some interesting images for the situation and location I’d be in.
I had never shot with a fisheye lens before. I’ve tried to simulate the effect using Photoshop, but now that I’ve shot with a true fisheye, I see it’s just not the same.
It’s very much a special purpose lens which, at my camera shop, is running about $600. I can’t really see spending that type of cabbage on a lens like this since I just wouldn’t use it enough. But it was fun, and sturdy. And I think it help me produce some interesting images, like this one…
And this one….
And this one, which I really enjoy:
And no…I didn’t mean sleeping with THESE fishes…..
