fish eyed lens

Kim Keever shoots amazing photographs of epic landscapes...

...all of which are created in a water tank in his studio.

As impressed as I am by the aesthetic of most of the photos, this might be a case for me where the process is more interesting than the final result,
even though the final result is no less than awe inspiring.

I don't know, I have to say I'm pretty impressed with the final moody, with so many textures. Once you realize it's underwater, what you're seeing makes more sense, but even then it's really breathtaking to me.

Put me in front of one of those images for the first time, tell me there's no digital or post-camera manipulation, and watch my jaw drop.

I was just about to add an addendum to the post actually. I wasn't trying to downplay the magnificence of the photos at all, I'm just a sucker for interesting creative processes, and am always more interested in what goes on behind the scenes.
