Just got my Sigma 15mm f/2.8 Fisheye lens today, and wanted to do a dog nose shot. I'm going to have to stop down some and get outside for more light, but here's my first one. This is harder than it looks because my dogs are freaking out when I put the fisheye lens near their nose!

Nice nose. ;)

I'm sure you'll be showing awesome shots soon with your new lens once you get it down pat. :tup

Yeh... this is harder than it looks. Buddy was terrified here. He wanted to look away pretty badly, but I managed to get a shot before he did.

Can you snap a pic with another camera of the body and lens that's scaring your dog so much with?

Seriously? I didn't know if you really wanted to see it, or if you were fooling around.

It is a 1DMk2N with the fisheye (which is very small), and the 580EX flash. The fisheye has a built in hood (tiny) and the front element is rounded over a little and you can see the elements in the center of it... so it kind of looks like a giant eyeball to a dog maybe.

Sure... I've never seen what you're talking about and would love to see a photo. :)

I think it looks cool... but can see how your dog didn't think so. LOL

Thanks Mike. :tup
