How the fisheye lens took over music

How the fisheye lens took over music


On Nov 4th 2019, former boy band member and
current fashion icon, Harry Styles, posted an image to twitter. Within 24 hours it racked up over half a million
likes. It was the cover to his long awaited sophomore
album, and fans dissected every last detail. From the pink and blue color palette,
which was used for the studio backdrop, his custom Gucci outfit, and was even painted
on his fingernails. To this disembodied hand in the corner, which
belongs to Tim Walker, the photographer. And finally, the scandalous release date – Friday
December 13th. His ex-girlfriend, Taylor Swift’s, birthday. But zoom out to the whole image, and you’ll
see something that extends far beyond the world of Harry Styles fandom. This circular photograph is the latest in
a long line of album covers that have that same warped composition. This is the story of music’s obsession with
the fisheye lens. In 1906 renowned physicist Robert W. Wood
was in his lab at Johns Hopkins University with a bucket full of water, a pinhole camera,
mirrored glass, and a lot of light. He wanted to see if he could create an image
of the world from the perspective of a fish. Whose view from underwater compresses the
entire horizon. This experiment might seem unusual, but Woods
was a professor of optical physics and he dedicated his career to inventing unconventional
tools to study light. From developing this disk whose microscopic
components helped determine the age of stars, to inventing this toy which, according to
the patent, “created grotesque images of people’s faces” through a series of perfectly
placed mirrors. I first heard of him as being sort of an offbeat
kind of guy. He often had a deep insight into things and
kind of a quirky way. That’s John Beaver, a photographer who is
also a Professor of Physics and Astronomy. That basic diagram of the rays coming at different
angles, I teach that all the time, it’s in every beginning physics book. But the idea of making a camera out of that,
I had never heard that Robert Wood had done that. In this paper, Wood detailed what he wanted
to see: “the circular picture would contain everything
embraced within an angle of 180 degress in every direction, i.e. a complete hemisphere.” And luckily, he left us with a set of instructions. Diameter of the paper, what’s that? Open only in photography darkroom. I feel like I’m about to murder somebody. Let’s go get some water. Anchors away. Let’s get another one of those clamps. In case of contact flash skin or eyes with
water for at least 15 minutes. That’s fine. Oh no it’s not because it has to be under
the pinhole. I honestly have no idea how the hell he did
this. I think there’s an easy way for you to do it now that he couldn’t have done. You can just put a waterproof
GoPro in the bottom of the bucket. God dammit. Can we just cut to the pictures? This is a picture he took from under a bridge. This is a line up of men. And this is what a fish might see if all those
men were looking down at it from above the surface of a pond. Soon, researchers and scientists built on
Wood’s idea. From 1915 through the 1930s, it was the fields
of meteorology and astronomy that drove the development of a camera lens that could capture
that coveted fisheye perspective. And on the eve of World War II, German inventors
filed a patent for a lens which they then shared with the Japanese company Nikon. The lens used the same principles as Woods’
water experiment. You can see it right in his diagram with the bucket. As the light rays come in at a steep angle,
they come out at a less steep angle. And so those light rays that are coming from
huge angles are compressed onto the picture. In 1957 Nikon produced their first special
order fish-eye camera, factoring in inflation, it was a $27,000 piece of gear. Though they were still primarily used for
scientific research, a few caught the attention of magazine and newspaper photographers. This 1957 issue of Life Magazine, shows a
fisheye view of a senate hearing. A few months later that same camera photographed
a pole vaulter mid jump. And in 1962, Sixty years after Robert Woods’
original experiments, Nikon’s first consumer grade fish-eye lens hit the market. And it became a pop culture phenomenon. It captured baseball stadiums
Shark cages Political conventions
The Apollo trainings And protests. It was and always has been a handy tool to
capture tight quarters. as well as huge spaces. But perhaps its greatest strength was making
rock stars appear larger than life. When the Beatles kicked off the British Invasion
in the mid 60s. The fish eye lens was uniquely suited to document
the insanity. Here they are at a Miami press conference. And during a TV performance. The len’s warped perspective reflected the
trippiness of the psychedelic era. Including the Woodstock music festival. This is jazz musician, Sam Rivers’, 1965
album Fuchsia Swing Song and it’s one of the earliest fisheye album covers. A few months later The Byrds Released Mr Tambourine
Man. Over the next few years the fisheye album
art format cemented itself in music. The most common format was this:
A giant circular fisheye lens portrait of the artist or band.
with typography above and below it. In more illustrated approaches, the font wraps
fully around the image And some exclude the artist altogether, opting
to show an interesting scene or landscape. Oh, I just thought of a fish eye album cover. Do you know Hergest Ridge by Mike Oldfield? No, but I’m going to look it up. Wow that’s cool. The fisheye lens was a go-to piece of gear
for music photographers and filmmakers by the end of the 1970s. It was there for concerts, television performances,
and photoshoots. So by the time MTV launched in 1981, it was
inevitable that the super wide angle lens would play a huge role in music videos. It could get super close to a performer while
still capturing the space around them. This is the music video for the Beastie Boys
track “Shake your Rump” It was shot with at least three cameras equipped
with a fisheye lens. Fisheye worked for every genre, from 60s hippies
to alt rock to hip hop. But hip-hop had a sense of humor, and it was
in your face. Which helped turn it into one of the genre’s
signature looks. And in the 90s that’s thanks to director Hype Williams.
— From 1991 to 1999 he directed dozens of music video for top artists. And many of those prominently featured a fisheye perspective. Busta Rhymes, TLC, and of course, Missy Elliot. The list goes on and on. And let’s not forget those album covers. The Fisheye lens is, no doubt, a novelty. When you see a photo taken with it, your eye
will likely first focus on the highly distorted style of the image, and then register what’s
in it. But that undersells how timeless and useful
of a tool it actually is. One generation sees it as a psychedelic photography
trope. Another a 1990s hip-hop throwback. If you’re an astronomer, it helps you track
clouds moving across the atmosphere and the terrain on the surface of Mars. And if you’re as curious as Robert Woods,
it’ll let you see the world from the point of view of
a fish.

Why do you feel so down? What’s going on? say something The mood is so cold Is this a trend? Why don’t you have fun? Ah, me neither Tell me what I got to do Turn on Bluetooth for now Play any song anyway Anything that’s exciting Dance whatever I like To look as if nothing

my butt off today What up my dawgs
Where are you? Buy some bottled beers
and snacks on your way huh Club isn’t so tempting Come to my living room quickly Make sure you
block the outsiders We’re lack of time

Someone is having a festival I feel distracted
I want my youth back They were noisy until
just a few minutes ago But start to leave Why do you feel so down? What’s going on? say something The mood is so cold Is this a trend? Why don’t you have fun?

out the window Even if I go out of mind
and behave badly No worries at all Why do you care about
image? It’s just between us Ohh before it’s too late
the last spurt There’s not much
time left in our 20s Get changed into comfortable clothes
You look nice, get’em high At first glance,
it’s just a comedy Have you ever been to
a harmless party like this? At around 2 am
with mixed emotions Glasses and emotions
are swirling Why do you feel so down? What’s going on? say something The mood is so cold Is this a trend? Why don’t you have fun? Ah, me neither Tell me what I got to do Turn on Bluetooth for now Play any song anyway Anything that’s exciting Dance whatever I like To look as if nothing

More Than Words – Music Travel Love (Crescent Falls, Alberta Canada) (Extreme Cover)


Saying I love you Is not the words I want to hear from you It’s not that I want you Not to say, but if you only knew How easy it would be to show me how you feel More than words is all you have to do to make it real Then you wouldn’t have to say that you love me ‘Cause I’d already know What would you do if my heart was torn in two More than words to show you feel That your love for me is real What would you say if I took those words away Then you couldn’t make things new Just by saying I love you Now that I’ve tried to talk to you and make you understand All you have to do is close your eyes And just reach out your hands and touch me Hold me close don’t ever let me go More than words is all I ever needed you to show Then you wouldn’t have to say that you love me ‘Cause I’d already know What would you do if my heart was torn in two More than words to show you feel That your love for me is real What would you say if I took those words away Then you couldn’t make things new Just by saying I love you More than words More than words

That Song In Every Musical That No One Likes – Sarah Smallwood Parsons

That Song In Every Musical That No One Likes – Sarah Smallwood Parsons


This is the song in every show That no one likes, because its boring A song like Sentimental Man, or Mr. Cellophane or…look that woman’s almost snoring I’m usually an older man Who wears suspenders and is lonely My range is limited and so The next three minutes will pass SLOWLY So if you have the tiniest suspicion That you should have peed when it was intermission Now is the time, you won’t miss much Oh, wait, here comes my Sort of, high nooooote! This is the song That no one likes Leading lady! Wait! Listen, leading lady I may just be a father, uh, a husband uh, a mayor or something, I don’t know But the important thing is I.. am not important I’m just an old Broadway legend who wanted a role where, I got to sing but I also got to sit down a lot That’s why five people clapped so loud when I walked out This the song where you can cough! So everybody get your coughs out Or you can whisper, “What’s the time?” “Where are we eating after this?” “Maybe we should just do take-out” Is this song even on the soundtrack? Not sure You skip it every time I’m sure they’d cut it but the leads are backstage changing, and they need a lot of time I’m also a veteran And sure, we all get claps at curtain call But once you leave, you won’t remember me at all And at the stage door, I’ll arrive and you may ask me for a photo But you’ll mean that you want ME to hold the phone Leading lady, wait! I want to give this to you It’s that pocket watch I mentioned SO briefly in the first scene It’s not a metaphor or an alegory or anything I just really don’t want to carry it around anymore Oh by the way, do you want to see my tap dance? That’s literally the whole thing They say you can’t enjoy the highs of life without the lows but Jesus this song blows
