Some dear friends and clients of mine sent me a text asking if they could be a Texas Aggie Family on Kyle Field at their fall session? Of course there wasn’t even a pause on my end before replying YES! I think I even used the crazy new “slam” option of texting on my iPhone. As a Texas Aggie photographer, this is a bucket list thing y’all!
I long focal length lenses and most often shoot families with my Canon 70-200, 2.8. However, I KNEW this was a unique session in such an incredible venue that a fisheye lens was a necessity. I rented one from Lens Rentals and it was on my doorstep in just a day. Ultra wide angle lenses take some finessing to avoid ultra crazy body distortion. Some distortion is fun, but who wants to look like a they are in a fun house mirror? NO ONE! Image above: Canon 8-15mm @ 15mm. Image below: Canon 70-200 2.8 @ 180mm.
SO what can a fish eye do? It can fit Kyle field in a single frame at just 30 feet away. Yes, it distorts the fire out of it for a fun perspective. Definitely not representative of the the architecture, but its FUN!
We ran and played, we posed for the classic portraits and overall just lived it up as die-hard Aggies and Former Students. WHOOP! These three boys were in heaven and the sweet mom and dad were absolutely BEAMING with pride watching them.
What special day that none of us will ever forget. We were treated to a day of Aggie royalty with VIP access like this. Pinch me! I know one family is going to be the envy of the entire Aggie world with their holiday cards this year! AND, my family MIGHT have had another photographer meet us there, too. No way I could let this one get by me, right? Of course not!?!
