photoblog image Peeping at the Staircase

Peeping at the Staircase

 

The door of this appartment has a peep hole to see who is standing in front of your door. When you peep you see the staircase which has a nice spiral shape. As you noticed my camera also peeped :-)

 

 

TECH-INFO: the peep hole has some kind of fish eye lens. First I tried a 90 mm macro but you had to come much closer to get what you normally see with your eye, so switched to a 35 mm macro lens and placed it on the door (initially I tried a tripod but it was too unhandy). By leaning on my camera I was able to hold it for a second. You can also clearly see the reflections in the hole (= the part of the fish lens which goes through the 8 cm thick door). I really like the low-fi effect of the fish eye peep lens.

That's a very good idea ! It's like a fisheye. It works well with the stairs.
