The idea behind this shot was pretty simple, wanted to put 2 shots in one composition. The first shot was the tunnel, and the second shot was me holding the Zoom Ball. So I already knew about a symmetric tunnel in Paris so I hit some local photographers up to ask where I could I find this spot.
How did you capture the photo?
They were kind and recommended me bunch of other spots there.So I went in the morning knowing there won't be many people walking around and I was super lucky to have a really good morning sunrise.
So I pull out the 80mm Zoom Ball to have this fishball effect so it would be easier to mask in photoshop creating that distortion effect.
Then the second shot was with aligning the ball in the middle of the bridge and that the tunnel was also centered so it would look as real as possible.
(Took a couple shots till I was satisfied with the shot I wanted to edit.)
A small tip when editing these pictures try and have the same parameters of lighting so when you edit them they look natural.
The second shot was with a 30mm 1.4 lens and I had to align the ball in the middle of the bridge and that the tunnel 2as also centered so it would look as real as possible when fusion both of the pictures in photoshop.
