Canon EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM Ultra-Wide Zoom Lens – Review:
GREAT WHEN YOU NEED A UNIQUE PERSPECTIVE!
Within a few days of receiving this lens I had a shoot to do for an upscale country inn. This place has already been shot from every angle, so it was a challenge to bring back something unique. With this lens I was able to get a remarkable circular shot of the entrance, both balustrades leading up to it, the canopy over the door and flags flying overhead — all in one beautiful shot.
Inside, I got a shot of the bar area that took in not just the bartender and her clients, but also the unique ceiling over the bar and the detail on the bar stools.
Of course I needed to round out these shots with more conventional views of the various rooms, but I believe having this lens in my kit gave me the ability to provide something fresh that helped to tell the story of the establishment.
