FE distances and technique

Impressive shots! How close did you need to be with the 7.5mm fisheye? like 2 feet, 3 feet, and incorporate cropping?

For the "aerial shot", I was about 1 m from the boarder and standing on a structure 0.3m high.  For the low angle shots I was between 0.3 and 0.6 m from the point of departure.

I usually crop FE shots just a little, to get the angle I want and in the meantime get rid of ugly distortions, mainly of people near the edges.

Did you just set focus to "infinity" and shoot away?

Pretty much.
