photography by me.
i wanted to try and imitate a fisheye effect - i am very tempted to buy an actual toy camera that has a fisheye lens, but until then i'll settle for this. it's actually really easy to do - you make a perfect circle with elliptical marquee (hold shift!) and then go to filter --> distort --> spherize. i stylized it a bit more with a vignette-like border around the edges (blending options --> inner glow, change color to black and blend mode to normal, increase the size) and some other effects to give it a bit more of a vintage or light-leaked look like adding a little noise.
