Praise from a Professional Photographer
I was at the Bell Street Gallery on Madeline Island last weekend, shooting a few photos at one of Steve and Mary McHugh's gallery openings. I brought along a camera and a new lens that I've been experimenting with. The results turned out to be fun and interesting. Here are a few samples:
The images are ultrawide and crisp, nearly 180 degree views. You just can't get results like these from most conventional ultrawide lenses. [Photo courtesy of Madeline Island Realty]
The Canon 15mm Fisheye lens lets you stuff a lot of view into a single frame. I'm told that Canon has discontinued this lens, which is really too bad. You'll need DxO Optics Pro software to uncompress and rectify the raw image to achieve a similar result.
Ultrawide lenses are fabulous for real estate photography and this one is a standout. Images are sharp from edge to edge and it's fast (f2.8). I have a feeling this lens is going to get a lot of use in our office.
I sent copies of some of these shots to Steve, and he emailed me, "LOVE THEM, hope you don't mind me dropping a couple on Facebook".
It's a pretty awesome feeling to receive praise from a pro photographer like Steve McHugh.
