"Eye" see you, Klaus! Nice thing about a fisheye lens is everything is in focus from the front element surface to infinity, so it's possible to hold the camera at whatever angle is required to get the shot.

Welp, Scott, rather than disrupt the flow here with a question, I figured I'd google "dill light," cuz I've never heard of one. But since the following was the closest I got to illumination, I had to ask.

Is this what you mean by "dill light?"

Should have said "Fill" light....Sorry Embarassed
