Wide as!

Fisheye view of the bush in Auckland Botanic Gardens

Fisheye view of the bush in Auckland Botanic Gardens

We’d decided on a stroll and I wanted to take a camera … but not carry a lot of weight. I decided to take a fisheye lens and see if I could capture something interesting. With 180 degrees corner to corner this lens is pretty wide. Mind you, there’s a bit of distortion too. All the same, using the lens in portrait mode let me give an impression of height to these totara trees in the Botanic Gardens. To aid you with scale you’ll notice my wife pretty central in the image. This tends to be the way walks work when I have a camera with me. Wifey keeps walking, I stop and shoot, try to catch up and then, if something else catches my eye, stop, compose, shoot then run to catch up again. Maybe if I get her a camera too we could both take shots that were less rushed? Something to think about maybe 😉
