fisheye tossing, series by phrenophile

What happens when you combine the activity of camera tossing with a big easily scratched lens? Well the risk goes up a notch, but perhaps so do the rewards! This series by phrenophile is quite unique, and growing a little every day! He recommends viewing them as a slideshow.

What strikes me about these is the fact that in some, you can hardly notice the fish-eye. It almost looks like a circular cropping. Such is the nature of working with subject matter that is often chaotic and already smattered with wonderfully fluid curves. In others however the effect is lovely!

He's also reverse engineered the photoshop effect of amazing circles that I blogged previously and has produced similiar results entirely in camera!
