Fish Eye (Literally)

Recipe: Take a dark, turgid decorative pond wherein dwell some not very Coy Koi. Throw in a probe wide-angle macro lens. Make sure the macro probe is water proof at the business end, with an LED ring light. Add a pinch of bread crumbs into the blackness of the water. Raise high the ISO of the camera. Wait for the fish to approach and try to eat the illuminated macro probe. Use the LCD to “see” what the lens sees, and try to track the eye of the fish as it glides just beneath the surface of the black waters, a sliver of a distance from the probe macro lens.

Yield: An impressionistic view of a literal fish eye, with the blackness of the pond universe extending to the infinite and the particulate matter in the water streaming by.
