My photo is currently on exhibit (again!) at one of my most favourite bookcafe in Singapore - Cat Socrates 苏格拉底猫 located at Bras Basah Complex with a theme this time round to be "My World Through Fisheye".
Using Fisheye camera lens or mode certainly does open up a whole new world of creativity in photography. Fisheye lens are used for the wide, nearly 180 degree angle field of view they provide when attached to a camera lens. It is useful when photographing small indoor spaces or sweeping landscapes. Through a fisheye lens, buildings appear to tumble backward, the horizon seems to curve upward and human anatomy becomes distorted.The Fisheye lens will also curve the image and it's actually meant for taking fun snapshots by giving a great fisheye effect. Maximum fisheye effect occurs real close to the subject (within a foot or so but not too close as the subject will then become blurry), but you still can get a nice effect if you take pictures from further away (although if you get too far the object will become tiny or even invisible. Get in close though for best results. That's what Fisheye is best at. So please try to photograph the world through fisheye lens!
Shortlisted "My World Through Fisheye" photographs are currently on exhibition from now until 31 August 2012.

By the way, please note that Cat Socrates Bookcafe has moved to a bigger shop size but still re-located within Bras Basah Complex! The store used to be located on the 3rd level but has now moved one level down to 2nd floor (Unit 02-25, opposite Popular Store) with effect from July 2012.
The little cute boy featured in my photo on exhibit is actually my best friend's son. His name is Caden. He is just way too cute. He is witty and fun to be around. Caden's mum, Doraine is another long-time friend of mine - we were secondary school classmates, we have built up more than a decade of friendship. Caden somehow knows that his mum and i are buddies, though he has no idea just how right he is. He just makes me smile every time I see him. Great moment! :-)
