The distortion from a fisheye lens makes it hard to use in most situations, but boy when it fits, it makes a captivating image.
For these images I used the Panasonic Lumix 8mm lens. Because it’s such a wide-angle lens almost everything will be in focus at any aperture. You mainly have to watch out that out don’t get your shoes or shadow in the photo since it’s such a wide angle of view. I shot these images in the program mode with Auto ISO using Lumix G series cameras.
