One of my favorite lenses to use whenever I see distinct lines in a composition is the fish-eye lens. They’re possibly the most underrated lenses on the market when it comes to creative opportunities for photos. While my fish-eye lens certainly required time to become familiar with the exaggerated qualities that it introduced, it quickly became one of my most indispensable pieces of glass. I bring it with me on every shoot because I never know when a unique fish-eye opportunity will present itself.
