Fisheye Dog Photography

Updated on December 29, 2014

Take great pictures of your Dog with a Fisheye Lens!

Last year, I got a new camera with a fisheye lens. The camera that I use is a Canon PowerShot SX210IS 14.1 MP Digital Camera with 14x Wide Angle Optical Image. It also has stabilized zoom and a 3.0-Inch LCD.

I got the purple one, but it is available in other colours. The Canon Powershot camera is available on www.amazon.com It does great special effects, giving a distorted 'fish-bowl' shape.

The best thing I have found that it can do it take fantastic pictures of my Jack Russell Terrier, Milo. The fisheye lens enlarges his nose, and the image stabiliser on the camera means that it is great for action shots! I'd like to share some of my pictures with you, and introduce you to the world of fisheye dog photography!

Up close and personal

The best shots with a fisheye lens tend to be when you up close to the dogs face. Try to position the dogs nose in the centre of the fisheye lens and it will enlarge it like this!

What is the best camera with an inbuilt Fisheye Lens?

Canon PowerShot SX210IS 14.1 MP Digital Camera with 14x Wide Angle Optical Image Stabilized Zoom and 3.0-Inch LCD (Purple)

This is the camera that I have used for my Fisheye photography on this lens. It has a high sensitivity system that allows high quality photographs and takes good close up images and pictures in low lighting. The Canon Powershot also has a shutter speed of 1 – 1/3200 sec, so it is great for taking pictures of moving objects, such as dogs licking their lips. Not to mention, this fabulous camera comes in my favourite colour, purple - it's the top Fisheye photography choice for me.

 

Fat Milo! Fisheye photography can distort the shape of your dogs body!

      Fun photos! I've got a camera that can add a fisheye effect to a photo after you take it, and it's pretty fun to play with, especially with photos of my dogs. Can't find much else to use it for, but the dog pics are great!
