Hey Dennis, looks like you’ve been busy. I’ve been keeping an eye on your work, absolutely awesome stuff mate, well done!! Bet you looking forward to the tournament actually starting now. Do you get to shoot some of the matches?
What lens is that top pic shot with? I’m just got myself a 15mm 2.8 fisheye and loving some of the results when used properly but this is brilliant. Bet it’s your 17mm TS/E? I’m just loving following your work – you are such an inspiration. Thanks again for all the feedback.
Hi Grant, thanks for your kind comments.
Absolutely correct, well spotted, the top image is indeed the Canon 15mm f2.8, a phenomenal piece of equipment, razor sharp and a lightning fast focussing system. I find it’s very hard to get a great image with as the converging verticals are so severe with this extreme fisheye so it needs the right image to get it to work nicely. The inside of the stadiums are a good situation as it’s really the only lens with such an ideal wide angle of view, much much wider than the 17mm TSE.
Look up UK-based Brett Harkness on the Internet, a wedding and portrait photographer who’s a marvel with the 15mm fisheye and does some really inspirational stuff in his wedding shoots with buildings – http://www.brettharknessphotography.com/
The middle image is a stitch of about 12 separate 16-bitt TIFF photographs so the detail is razor sharp – the actual file prints at 900x545mm without any enlargement.
The bottom image is my bog standard style shot with the Canon 17mm TSE – ISO 100, 2 seconds, f11 to capture the cars driving past and give the foreground some interest.
