Outfit: Fisheye



I feel the key trick to preventing a "rut" (whether it be style, blogging, creative work, etc) is to push yourself to continue improving the quality of what you produce. For me, I'm constantly trying to improve my photography--I want every post I make to be better than the last. Obviously some days I fail at that goal and think my photography falls short of what I'm capable of, but bad days are just more motivation to learn from my mistakes and not repeat them. Still, I'm always using the same camera and lens when it comes to outfit posts, so recently I bought a second lens--a fisheye--to play with. I'm still torn on whether it's more of a gimmick than a practical lens for fashion photography, but today's post features a mix of my regular lens and the new fisheye. The distortion is less intense when used in wide spaces which makes the images more suitable for a fashion blog, but less of an example of what the lens is capable of. What do you think of the fisheye effect?

The more creative the fashion photography, the better! I use all sorts of different lenses and settings on my blog. Clothes tell a story, and sometimes you need a crazy visual perspective to really serve that story. I LOVE that middle photo with the tree!

I think the fish eye lens has a dreamy look to it!

I really like the fish eye effect! It really makes you the focus of the picture. It gives the photos a magical quality and makes them pop.

Hey Rebecca! I read all your photography tips posts and I was wondering if you're planning to do more of them. It would be wonderful if you could do one on the use of tripods! Also, I'm sure you get this a lot, but what do you normally edit to make your photos pop? Love the warmth coming from your blog photos :) Thanks and hope you're having a great week so far!

I have always admired your photography and the spaces and angles you use!

I am not a fan of the fisheye lens, but the pictures you took with it seem fun.

Never been fond of fush eye though even I must agree it can produce some really gorgeous photos in some very trucky settings.
