Selfie with Marley

Taking Marley for a Ride - I Love My Dog

This is a selfie I took with my fisheye lens and my wireless remote controller. For this shot I was in full manual mode, shutter speed set at 1/10 because I wanted to capture some motion outside of the car since I was driving during this shot, ISO 100, and I believe my aperture was probably f/16 or somewhere around there.
Post processing done in Lightroom 5, making minor adjustments with highlights, shadows and a little saturation boost.

I’ve always been a fan of what the fisheye lens can capture. I like the wide angle & the distortion the curved lens creates. I wanted a fisheye for years and since the Canon fisheye is over way $1,000 I figured it’s something I would probably never own… that is until I found out about the Rokinon. I decided to go with the Rokinon 8mm f/3.5 which I picked up for $239 on Amazon. Granted this lens is fully manual, but after reading the reviews I found out it’s quick & easy to learn so that made me comfortable with going forward and purchasing it. I usually shoot in full manual mode anyways so this didn’t bother me. This just means I have to manually focus and use the adjustment ring on the lens to decide my aperture. No biggie.
