Street Photography With The Samyang 8mm Fisheye Lens

To go out with the Samyang 8mm fisheye lens to do Street Photography must be up there with my silliest ideas! And yet I found the experience very creative and entertaining.
It was obviously challenging and I added some more restraints into the mix… But I think I ended up with a few good photos that are somehow out of the ordinary. The good thing is that the sun came out when I reached the location so at least I could play with my own style of Street Photography.

I had this idea for a while but I was never sure I could pull this off. I’m glad I tried because I actually shot some very interesting photos with this Samyang 8mm!
It surely pushed me to find creative ways to take street photos. And I thoroughly enjoyed the process.

Street Photography with a Fisheye Lens | Samyang 8mm F2.8

Now, this video is in 2 parts. In the first I talk a bit about this Samyang 8mm fisheye and the things I will do with it. Vlog-style.
In the second, it’s all about the photos and I try to mix them with some b-roll to not make this too boring. But there’s 35 photos in here for you to enjoy so hopefully you will find some inspiration.


The lens is the Samyang 8mm F2.8 UMC Fisheye II: https://amzn.to/3wMlYvp (available for Canon, Fujifilm, Sony and Samsung mounts).
In the US you may find it under the Rokinon brand name

Feel free to leave a comment and let me know your thought. And of course, don’t forget to like the video (because you obviously like it) and subscribe to the channel.
You can massively help my small channel so thank you all for doing it.

There’s also another “wild” Street Photography video that I made with a different full manual lens at F/0.95… Watch that too!

And I’ll see you next time!
Cheers.
