Fisheye Through an Eyehole

3

While watching through my door’s eyehole, I noticed something really interesting.

A common product in everybody’s house, the eyehole, actually provides a fisheye view. That gave me the idea of decorating my camera with a fisheye lens. I bought one from a hardware store, the biggest eyehole I could find, put it in front of my lens and voila! My camera can take 170 degree photos.

The main thing to have in mind when buying an eyehole is to buy one big enough so that your lens will “see” through and it will align perfectly with your lens.

    Pushing Boundaries: Multiple Exposing Film Soup

    As you may have read in my previous article, I truly fell in love with Lomography when I combined my Fisheye camera with an old Canon AE-1 for magical photographic results. Last summer, I took so many pictures of flowers that it started to become almost boring for me. My waning interest and the coming winter meant that I had to figure out something else to do with my 35mm film.

    My Year in Analogue: Something New, Something Old

    Hi, everyone! I'd like to share with you my 2014 summary on analogue photography. Some things I did were completely new, while some were my good old habits. This year I learned how to develop black and white film, which I consider my greatest milestone. But the most important thing is that in 2014, I remain in love with Lomography! And the rest? Well, let's see...

    The Magic Yet To Come: Part 3

    “Let me tell you about my life turning blue”. Those were the first words the guy on the bench said as he sat down beside me whilst I was eating my lunch. Usually, I prefer to eat alone but there was something about this opening sentence which really intrigued me; so I told him “Sure buddy, go ahead. Tell me about your life in blue”.
