I came to borrow a Lomography tunnel vision lens from a friend. It comes with a macro. The problem however, is that I used it with a Lomo LC-A+ so I had no idea if I had the needed distance from my subject to get the right macro focus since you cant see it through the LC-A's view finder. So I adapted a tip for using macro lens that I learned from my Holga camera.

Chinese photographer Fan Ho was in his early 20's when he started shooting the streets of Hong Kong in the 50's.

You can change your world by changing your angle!

But sorry to say that a camera does not give a great photo but the person shooting does.
