Playing With Distortion While Shooting – Making Non-Macro Photos With a Macro Lens
“There are obviously many ways you can distort photos in post-processing. However, one of my favorite things is achieve this distortion while shooting, so I don’t have to do anything more to what results.
One of the ways I’ve been playing with distortion is to use my Olloclip macro lens to shoot things far away instead of close-up, which is the original purpose for which a macro lens was designed. I’ve been experimenting now and then with night shots, but for this piece, I shot during the day to see what that looks like too. My process so far is to pick an app with great filters which you can shoot through right off the bat, with the Olloclip macro attached. What you get is a photo that you don’t need to edit at all (unless you want to). Happy experimenting!”
