Fun with Lenses (Three Photographs)

These photos were taken with a 10.5mm DX lens (full frame 15mm) it’s close to being a fish-eye (a real fish-eye lens would be 5 to 8mm). With the 10.5 you still have to watch that your feet don’t appear in the frame. I got my copy of the lens second-hand. They are used mostly for skiing and skateboard shots. Every so often it’s fun to take it out and play around, recognizing you must have a straight horizon and that everything above and below the horizon will tilt inwards. Someone told me that the Nikon D7200 has a fish-eye mode built-in; it’s in the editing functions that I never use (along with all the movie functions) and does not do the same thing. The 10.5 is often in my bag when I go out for landscape, nice to have but not a necessity.
