Fancy a Fisheye? | Photography Post

Since I was a tot, photography has been an avid interest of mine. Whether I’m behind the camera, in front of it or spectating, it just gives me an overwhelming feeling of happiness. I don’t profess to be particularly good at it, but I’m certainly trying my hand at becoming a better ‘photographer’. I can’t quite believe how fast technology is coming on, and it never fails to amaze me that when I was younger everything was done on film – digital didn’t even exist. Personally, I think film photography will always have a closer place in my heart – not only does it show excellent photography skills but there’s something rather nostalgic about flicking through ‘real’ photographs. Having said that, film is an expensive hobby and not one that I can personally keep up with on a weekly basis. Which is partly why I am such a huge fan of digital – I’m the girl who is head over heels in love with her DSLR and couldn’t wait to get her hands on the iPhone (blackberry I hate chu). All the accessories and possibilities with digital really excite me! It’s revolutionary to be able to take a photo, and then look at it straight away – I think we really take that for granted sometimes.

Everyone that has an iPhone, will more than likely have instagram. It’s pretty much the done thing right? Enhancing photographs at the tap of a button is fun, and far simpler than the likes of Photoshop. But have you thought about accessories for your iPhone? I was recently sent a Fisheye Lense for my 4S and I’m seriously impressed with the results….


Fisheye photography in my eyes is wonderful. It can make a mundane photo so much more interesting and appealing to the eye. This one comes with a nifty little black case to slot on the back of your phone and then you just screw the lense on to the back, so simple and such great quality. They’re a bargain at under £15, so if you want to pick one up you can do, here. 

I think it just shows that you don’t need to fork out thousands of pounds on a digital SLR when your iPhone can do such a fantastic job, providing versatile pictures.

What about you? Have you tried any accessories for your camera phone? What sort of photography interests you?

I recently bought this lense too for my Canon DSLR, would anyone be interested in seeing a post about it?

This is really cool, I saw something like this on a BBC programme earlier in the year. I was quite intrigued by them at the time but I'd forgotten all about then until I saw your pictures.

These look superb, I particuarly like the graveyard one, the contrast of the colours are beautiful.

I love the fish eye lens but i don't have an iphone and it really annoys me that all these cool accessories just seem to be for iphones x

Jessica Leigh said...

these pictures are lovely! I use my iPhone to take all my pictures, don't get me wrong I'd love a nice camera but why fix something that's not broken :) x

Kay said...

These are great pictures and the fact you can get a lens for your iphone is pretty something. I don't have an iphone (I have blackberry!) so no instagram for me boohoo.

I have a Nikon D3000 which I love, but am still getting to grips with. I haven't thought about changing lens on it yet ha ha but I hope to try out lots of different styles of photography, once I get the hang of this camera!

The first is such a cute photo! This is amazing, especially considering it's for your iPhone! I would LOVE to see a review on the 50mm! I'm thinking of buying one but i'm not sure if it's worth investing in one with more features. x

I'm completely the same about photography, I felt like you could've been describing myself in the first paragraph, too! Two peas in a pod? I think so. Your photos have come out lovely! I've never considered getting add on accessories like this for my iPhone before, maybe I'll have to invest.. I can imagine it providing me with hours of entertainment! xx

Hev said...

PS. yes to the lens post. Or just a photography post in general (can you tell I'm a woman obsessed..)

Charlotte said...

Yes for the canon lens review!!

I've asked Father Christmas for the lomography fish eye lense for my Diana F+ (it's like £30), but I'm so tempted to pick up this nifty little gadget for when I don't have money to burn on film (ie, a lot more often than I'd like). These photos are beautiful! xx

Katie Frank said...

I love fish eye! I have it to my Diana + <3
Love your photos!

These photos are so lovely. I can't wait to get rid of my (shit)berry for an Iphone! I'm a lover of photography too and wish I could afford to dabble in film more, but I'm happy with my DSLR, need to try a fisheye lens though!
