I have been working in the Rotunda building for a couple of years near. Previously we were based in the bottom of the building and I posted some shots of the atrium taken with a fisheye. We recently moved offices to the upper floors and being up near the top of the space gave me the opportunity to explore the views from higher up. For some reason, I hadn’t previously been upstairs to look around.
The top levels are restricted to the tenants of the respective space. However, lower down you can access the space. I figured it was still a good place for the fisheye and it was quite interesting to see what effects you could create. The fun with the fish is choosing where to put the distortion. You can even turn curves into reflex lines by getting them aligned appropriately. It is amazing how much being out of center shows itself when you are using such a wide angle. Something that looks symmetric to the eye results in a clear asymmetry with a fisheye. At least with digital you see the result quickly if you chimp a little.
