Fisheye Portrait by Puggs

Currently unavailable for purchase

Portrait night at the Melbourne Camera Club (MCC) again last Monday Night

This is Jessica. Here I tried something totally different, I used my Fisheye lens and Nathan’s Flash for his Nikon (I didn’t bring mine). Using the light behind Jessica’s head to light the hair and shoulders, the flash on manual on the camera shooting as wide as it could I got this great effect.

Exp Bias +0.3 step

    I agree! The whole thing, compo, pose and colour is really “Together” so effectively, it makes for a very appealing shot!!

  • Thanks for the words. The whole night was a success, I so far have 21 shots flaged as uploadable to Flickr and I have only sorted through about a 3rd of them..

    Probably would have tried to keep her feet in the shot and a little less headroom but love the effect and I’m really having a hard time not buying a fisheye lens…
    Keep up the good work ;)

  • She was a leggy girl. Also if i had less head room the horazontal lines on the background would not be straight. or her head would not be over the light behind it.

  • PS. you got to get a fisheye, it is the most fun lens there is…

    yeah thats true about the lines on the wall didnt notice that straight away. it is a great composed image and well shot. I am getting a pretty awesome deal with a fisheye and sb600 used so might as well and resale value is great

  • best of luck with it, you can get some great shots from a fisheye… and if you want to you can use software to turn it into an ultra wide image. But i prefer the effect that a fisheye gets you….
