    Porthole effect

    Hello,

    Wandering about last weekend I ran into a photographer from Cleveland shooting with an 8x10 P&S (no focus), and using a 90mm Angulon. He enthusiastically admitted that he was getting circular images with the Angulon, and I began wondering how many of you have gone the opposite direction in lens coverage; deliberately picking one that would not cover the film, and making use of the light falloff, fuzzy edges, etc, as compositional elements.

    Thoughts, comments, deafening silence?

    Sounds like he has a Hobo. I have a friend who has one with a 90mm. I guess it's kind of interesting in the way a fisheye can be if it's not overused. Info here:

    Sam Wang at Clemson University did (still does?) that type of work. Emmitt Gowin also did the circular image thing.

    i thought about getting a hobo and went so far as to gather up a wide variety of equipment ; i.e. trays, tanks, hangers, etc. and then have backed off before getting the camera and a lens. Only because i have so many other projects on the drawing board that are behind schedule.

    however, on the other end , i took a holga and tweaked it for 35 mm film so the image covrers rebate and all. it is fun, but don't use it as much lately.

    I like Kerik's work too. I've thought about trying this very thing, but haven't done it yet. What is a good amount of coverage to start with when trying this? My widest lens is a 90 mm f/4.5 Nikkor, would this lens give too little coverage?
