Simeone Museum through a Fish Eye Lens

The Simeone Museum and its amazing collection of Racing Sports Cars look quite different when viewed through a Fish Eye Lens. The Fish Eye Lens features an incredibly wide field of view of 180 degrees. It has no rectilinear correction to address the curvature of the view near the edges of the frame so the perspective is quite different than a conventional lens. The Fish Eye lens I used to capture these photos was a Rokinon 8mm Ultra-Wide Angle f/3.5 Lens. I was experimenting with it at the Le Mans Demo Day on Saturday, May 28th to incorporate some of the shots into the upcoming Foundations of Photography 103 Class on Lenses and Filters that will be held on Saturday June 4th, 2016. Hope to see you all at Class on Saturday, June 4th from 11:00am till 1:00pm.
