if you don’t have a fisheye camera or can’t afford a fisheye lens; i have good news now you can actually fisheye with photoshop. (p.s: i have cs3 version so i don’t know if this is possible in previous versions)

File>Open (Ctrl+O) the photograph you want to apply fisheye effect in photoshop.

Hold Shift and with Elliptical Marquee Tool select the area you wish to apply fisheye effect.

When you have made a selection with the elliptical marquee tool, next step is Select>Modify>Feather

When you have applied 15pixels of feather to your selection, click Filter>Distort>Spherize.

Once you have applied the spherize effect to your selection press Ctrl and C. You will have copied your selection. Then press Ctrl and N to open a fresh page. Then to paste your selection into the fresh page, press Ctrl and V. You will have this:

Then create a new layer and position it below the layer of your fisheye-d image.

Tell A Lie Project

July 27, 2009

About Henry Hadlow’s Tell a Lie Project

The most controversial lies told with photography today are those told by news photographers who manipulate their work photographs to tell a different story, for example, Liu Weiqiang’s faked photograph of antelope and the rail link with Tibet.

Working with my friend Ed Cornish, we decided to flip this lie on its head and use a camera to mimic common Photoshop effects.
