Earth Day 2011

It’s Earth Day 2011. It’s also Good Friday, and my own personal Fine Art Friday. To fulfill these days–celebration, worship and art–I set out with the camera and took up the microphone.


Photo tip to produce fisheye landscapes

Fine Art Friday

One of the reasons I bought the Canon 5D MkII was to have full use of all my lenses with that full-frame sensor. I have tried most of my lenses on the camera, but I really hadn’t played with the 15mm/2.8 Fisheye Lens. A full frame gives you the widest palette for this lens. With the 15 on the 5D, I headed out to shoot some landscapes.

Here’s a few tips for how to use this lens or one like it.

Leave a comment, if you’d like.

See you on the highway.



There are times when words are the subject of art, like this relic of a sign that surely hung over a gallery or art supply retailer.
