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!
Here are some of the funny faces my friends have formed in front of my Fisheye:
What are you waiting for? Go and grab your Fisheye and get as close as possible and ask politely: make the funniest face you can!
Where are you headed to this summer? Where I'm from summer has ended too soon, so I'm still daydreaming of sand and seafoam. I decided to check out the archives for some cool beach-y snapshots and came across a lot of interesting underwater photos! Check out my finds after the jump; hopefully this list will inspire you to grab a Fisheye Sub or a Krab, along with your Fisheye cameras and LC-A+, for some underwater adventure.
Today’s featured member, Herbert, gives the impression that he is interested in people as much as he loves cameras—and he has many vintage treasures. Even a casual snapshot of his has a story that suggests curiosity about the people he photographs.
He will respectfully ask for a photo session. He does not outline why, and if you are shy, you will wonder what he has seen in you. He greets reluctance with understanding and a resounding yes with an equal amount of enthusiasm. When the day comes, he will treat you like a collaborator. And whenever he talks about the outcome—comely photos of what looks like your most confident self—he will always call you a muse.
