Askew With a View
Posted by Shayla Simmons — 26 Jul 2012
The world is a fascinating place. However, as we age, it seems to get easier to take the world and its beauty for granted. People really don't look at places or things in awe, as a child would. Luckily, thanks to photographers, the world is captured with new and unique views every day.
For example, the fish-eye lens in photography lets the viewer experience an ordinary place or thing in a new way. For some, the fish-eye lens may make the viewer feel trapped in a tiny box looking out a peep hole, only to heighten their phobia of enclosed spaces. To many, this view can enhance the image almost like a child peering into a new world, imagining and exploring.
