Through the Eyes of a Fisheye

February 24, 2010
Because I’m bored and I haven’t had a chance to show off the fisheye conversion lens, I thought I’d share a few shots I took the other day. I wanted to compare the focal area of the 50 mm 1.8 lens (which is now on sale for $89 with free shipping) vs. the Opteka HD .20 wide angle/fisheye lens.

If you look at our TV, you’ll see my 50mm shot – clearly a much narrower shot. On the other hand, the fisheye conversion lens provides a much...

And, guess what arrived today…my Canon Speedlite 430EX II. I could hardly wait to get home and practice. Fortunately, I had a willing test subject – my girl scout cookie order. Oh boy…two of my favorite things in the same room…my camera and a box (or six boxes) of cookies!Kitty Paw decided to settle down, so she also got to experience my new speedlite.  If you look closely, you’ll see my reflection in...
