Street Photography Nothing scares and excites me at the same time quite like it. So when this weeks theme came up I decided to do something a little differently and I used my new Rokinon 8mm fisheye lens I picked up for my birthday. I tell you those little Amazon emails announcing a sale in “Cameras and Electronics” are dangerous. I decided to head downtown to take my wife out to lunch and then do a small photowalk to see if I could make a decent street shot with the fisheye, after walking around for about an hour here’s what I got…
The fisheye was a fun yet challenging lens to use for street photography as you have to get close! I mean really close, that guy was only 3 feet away and very aware of me and my camera, however the advantage of the fisheye is I can capture someone without having to point it directly at them and so I was able to capture him without making him or me too uncomfortable. A short train ride brought me to the heart of downtown Salt Lake City…
I headed back to the Trax platform to wait for a ride back to my car.
What a fun little photowalk, I love the new lens, and despite it being a manual lens it was easy to use I can’t believe how well it handles direct Sun flare, and I think the image quality speaks for itself. I look forward to playing with it much more in the future!
Thanks for joining me on this ultra wide experience and I hope you’ll be back soon.
