Don’t overuse the fisheye lens

one can have too much of a good thing

Maybe I should’t need to be mentioned, yet it needs as more and more people are unexplainably devoted to use a fisheye lens. This can be sene not only in the images of GoPro and other action cameras (where it almost cannot be avoided) or the use of snap on lenses, but in everyday photo stories line up a growing number of fisheye shots – often without any reason.

Aerial photos of an Air Show

how very few people have seen these planes

Hungarion version

Zoltan Veres of Hungary flies his routine during an Air Show above river Danube crossing central Budapest, Hungary on May 01, 2014.

This year I tried to show something special from the aerobatics show held on may day. Peter Besenyei took off with his plane from Elisabeth bridge, and Zoltan Veres flew through under Budapest’s oldest bridge Chain Bridge and performed lots of visual maneuvers. Let’s see some of my rare photos of these performances from a birds eye view!

Interesting social experiment using the tools of photography and model retouching. Everyday women have been transformed into cover girls who in the end turned out not to like the result better. They actually prefer accepting their original look instead of the altered but fake one portrayed by the retouched photos. We just don’t know if they are really honest in this video.
