So, I got a new toy. A fisheye lens for my camera. I won’t bore you with the technical details, but one thing does stand out. It has a 180° angle of view. Yep, wherever I point, it’s completely side to side. You really have to watch out for your shoes when you point your camera.
The following four shots are with my “standard” lenses. The top one is a prime. Doesn’t zoom, just takes in a wide angle. (All four pics are from the same place, pointed in the same direction). Second shot is a zoomed out one from my 300mm telephoto lens, and the third one is fully zoomed in. And the last one is my new fisheye. A bit of a difference between them all, huh?
The rest of these photos are just me walking around the lake with the fisheye. For some, the distortion is pretty apparent. Others, it just feels wider. I like this lens. It’s not for portraits, but I think I can have some fun with it, especially with travel shots where I want to bring in everything I see.
Have you seen the YouTube Channel? No? Really? Because that’s what this site is designed for, to drive you over there. So … what are you waiting for? 🙂 Seriously, The Pirate Wanderer is centering around videos, and what better place than YouTube to host our world. Please head over, subscribe, and comment away. We can’t wait to see you over there!
For the most part, we’ve got this financially (especially if you buy our book!). But, and there’s always a but, a little help won’t be turned away. If you enjoy what you see and want to help out, any donation would be most appreciated.
And while you’re at it, perhaps head over to Amazon and pick up my new novel: Letters To A Dead Uncle. On the shelves and in the Kindle Store. It’s a travel novel, of sorts. Just me writing to my dearly departed Uncle Jimmy about my latest exploits. More details on the home page!
