Fisheye cameras and lenses make headshots--especially facial expressions--more interesting. And by interesting, we mean hilarious. A fisheye perspective is essential for my mad shots. Thanks to friends who have a sense of humour and lots of patience, I created a series I'm really proud of.
The Fisheye was my first Lomography machine. I was instantly enthralled by it, I think it is absolutely the most fun cam in its ability to warp things around. Even when I bought a Diana F+, I immediately also got myself the fisheye lens to go with it!

A sense of continuation.
