RS - Fish Eye Lens
The Fish Eye Lens
"In photography, a fisheye lens is a wide-angle lens that takes in a broad, panoramic and hemispherical image. Originally developed for use in meteorology to study cloud formation and called "whole-sky lenses", fisheye lenses quickly became popular in general photography for their unique, distorted appearance. They are often used by photographers shooting broad landscapes to suggest the curve of the Earth. Hemispherical photography is used for various scientific purposes to study plant canopy geometry and to calculate near-ground solar radiation."

The fish eye lens was famously used in music videos such as The Beastie Boys "Shake your rump"
And also Busta Rhymes "Gimme some more"
With A2 media we will be creating/editing our music videos using Final Cut. With final cut there is an effect within the programe to use the "fish eye lens" effect; therefore we won't need to go and find a Fish Eye Lens at the shop and purchase one (which can be priced at £100+ so it will save us alot of money!).
