Fun with a Fisheye Lens

2011 was my 6th year attending the Northern Voice personal media conference. I took the opportunity this time to play around more with my DSLR camera. I got to talking with photographer John Biehler about shooting using a fisheye lens, and he was kind enough to lend me his for the second day of the conference.

Fisheye is such a different perspective, it took me some time to get a feel for what it works well on. Here are a few of my favorite fisheye shots from the day (click to enlarge):

See all my photos in my 2011 Northern Voice photoset. The first half were with a 'regular' lens, and the second half are fisheye shots.

Please describe the lense and how many you would need to get 360dg of horizontal coverage while in the vertical plane, +-45dg

Much appreciated

The lens was a Nikon 10.5mm f/2.8 DX Fisheye. It sees 180 degrees from corner to corner diagonally.

Some more details on it can be found here:
