The Fisheye 2 and I have been becoming close friends. I just developed my second role of film from it, an expired Agfa Color 200 (expiration date 06/2006). And the fisheye proved true, some of the shots are fantastic!
The effects of the expired film seem pretty limited, some cratches but that seems about it.. I have some old film from 1996 lying around and I am hopig for more of an effect for those!
Now the mistakes I made in this role:
1. EPIC mistake.. I left the lens cap on.. It took me a while to figure out what I was seeing but it’s the ‘lomography’ on the lens cap!
2. Also on the epic scale but not as epic.. I left the flash on for a night, so the battery died.. So when I shot my next frame, it turned out a little like this..
3. Lomo Street View – there are streets that translate really well and some that do not translate into nothing at all. The thing that did not work for me was the trying to capture a whole street:
4. Fisheye potraits are the best!
So on to the next role of film! (And the next battery!)
