When to pull out the fish­eye

1 Curvy ar­chi­tec­ture

Fish-eyes can come in handy for ar­chi­tec­tural shots, es­pe­cially for scenes where the cur­va­ture adds some­thing ex­tra to the com­po­si­tion. It is pos­si­ble to cor­rect the dis­tor­tion with soft­ware like Pho­to­shop, but we think the dis­tor­tion is part of the charm.

2 Funny por­traits

A fish­eye is a lens to pull out of the kit­bag if you want to try a funny por­trait or pet photo. Fram­ing the head in close to the lens will give you an un­usual, dis­torted angle of the sub­ject. It’s also great if you like to shoot video with your Nikon, as you can go for ex­treme an­gles.
