The Fish-eye Lens In Landscape Photography
by E.J. Peiker | October 22, 2014
The novelty fish-eye lens has long allowed photographers to explore a unique look and perspective in their picture-taking endeavors. Invented more than 100 years ago, the ultra-wide angle lens has a 180-degree angle of view and produces a hemispherical rather than the linear view that normal rectilinear design lenses have. Their first serious use was in the early 1900s to study full-sky views in meteorology. In the mid 1900s, photographers started experimenting with these lenses. Today we have two primary types of fish-eye lenses. The circular fisheye takes in a true 180-degree field of view and therefore produces a circular image. The full-frame fish-eye has a 180-degree field of view diagonally from corner to corner and produces a frame-filling image but with heavy linear distortion. Continue reading »

Avoiding Black Backgrounds for Macro Photography
by Greg Basco | October 02, 2014
Using black backgrounds is a divisive issue in nature photography; people tend either to love them or hate them. I’m more selective. I quite like black backgrounds for nocturnal animals as they give a totally natural look. I’ve had people tell me, for instance, that they prefer red-eyed tree frog photos with natural light and green forest backgrounds because they look more “natural.” Since red-eyed tree frogs, like most nocturnal frogs, are curled up asleep under a leaf during the day, this statement makes little sense to me.
