Fisheye lens photography is unique in the visual world of capturing images. In this free video, world renowned outdoor photographer Ian Plant shows you how to incorporate more creativity into your work through fisheye lens photography. A fisheye lens adds a bulging curve to the center of the image for an extreme wide angle view. There are two types of fisheye lenses: the circular fisheye that edges a black circle around the image, and then the full frame fisheye which includes the entire image area. With his own photographs, Ian shows you some uses of the lens: a slot canyon interior. a pattern of moss-covered branches, and a wild animal in a natural setting. Go ahead and expand your own creativity with fisheye lens photography.
