over the top
Wow. Was this really a style?
I went to the Ringling Museum to try out the Olloclip add-on lenses for the iPhone. They give a modest 2x telephoto and wide angle effect to the camera in the phone. This painting was one of the ones I grabbed a photo of. I didn’t record who the subject was (king?) or the painter either.
I guess you don’t laugh at the king but, sheesh, it would have been difficult to see him show up in something like this and not want to make a joke.
As far as the optics were concerned – the lenses are not too bad but you can see some pincushion distortion here that was present in many of the other photos as well (this was the telephoto).
