I love that 15mm Fisheye.
I had a portrait all lined up and was waiting all week to go shoot it. Called the guy today and he said "Sorry mate gonna have to cancel it, hope it don't screw up your plans" Right! Thanks a lot pal, why didn't he call me like 3 days ago so I could of made other plans.. Anyway. I get home all hot and bothered and see my friend Frankie here just getting home from a hard days painting.. "hey Frankie! get over here and pose for me dude"... "sure, let me go clean up I'll be right over" NOOOOOOOOOOooooooooo!!!!! grab the roller and let's get it on dude.

Many thanks Frankie, saved the day

Nice use of the fisheye to make a very engaging portrait.

This picture is hilarious! The lighting is great and the fisheye gives it a very special quality. Frankie seems to be the perfect guy for a fisheye shot. ;)

I just don't get this, sorry. No reason, just not saying anything to me. Art speaks differently to different people.

I like the use of the wide angle and the resulting distortion.

I just like this.....

A little too up close and initimate for me, but I think that was the point. This makes me laugh. Nice job! A seven for you.

Wooooah. A photo that just stops you in your tracks, great use of fish eye to create a really interesting portrait. Outstanding sharpness and nice splash of colour as well

If I am being picky perhaps I would have liked to either see more tools of the trade or him to have more paint splashes, but still an excellent 8 (for the moment I may be back to bump up)

Great perspective. I like your use of DOF here and the subject really goes to the heart of this challenge. Nice work.

Like the wide angle on this. It works with this character.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/20/2008 08:08:52 PM
hahaha! Though the extreme closeup isn't flattering, Frankie looks like a pleasant and hardworking soul. Shadow on face a little harsh. 7

A half painted wall would have really suited this shot.

Not a big fan of such a small depth of field.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/19/2008 06:39:26 PM
very fun! well done! A "nine"
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/19/2008 06:08:20 PM
Very well done. Looks like a wide angle or fisheye lens which gives a distorted view of Frankies face, but in a good way. The lighting on the left side is very well done as are the out of focus areas. The pain on the shirt and the roller are a nice touch against the painted (or soon to be painted) wall...7

WOW, in your face!, love it, but not original
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/19/2008 02:11:16 PM
The wide angle really brings out your subjects character. Great! 7

Reminds me of those old Vern commercials. Nicely done.
