Oh, and don’t forget to check out the hundreds of hot-to-death tips from the Lomographic Community at: www.lomography.com/tips.
You may assume that – given its name – the Fisheye camera would enjoy a dinner of flake food, but it’s
actually kind of stuck up that way. It really prefers steak cooked medium rare. And the cut has to be halfway decent – at least a juicy sirloin or something of that nature.
When you’re driving on the highway, having two Fisheye cameras as your passengers does not qualify you to ride in the carpool lane. For some reason, the cops don’t afford them the same status as human passengers. As if they are not the world’s most perfect companion! It’s another naked case of official prejudice if you ask me.
> If you’re in the middle of a violent thunderstorm, and on the top of a hill – chances are that your Fisheye will not necessarily attract a lighting bolt to you. After all, it’s mostly plastic. But you still better get the hell out of there – and what were you doing there in the first place anyway?
While the Fisheye camera cannot solve the debate between Darwin’s evolutionary theory and the concept of divine “intelligent design,” it can make a close-up picture of you cat’s face look completely hilarious.
Try bicycling in the city with a Fisheye in one hand. Ride close to pedestrians and shoot them close-up as you zip on by. Put on your own exhibition called – “Shocked and Surprised – My Fisheye Drive-By Shootings.” When you sell that first print for 30 grand, be sure to send me a fair cut. I didn’t just pluck this off the “idea tree” you know!
He who laughs last, laughs best. Don’t put your eggs in one basket. Don’t count your chickens before they hatch. And don’t leave the lens cap on or your shots are gonna be nothing but a whole lot of black.

Very few of even the most intrepid travelers get to set sail to the Arctic and the Antarctic. A lomographer known to the Community as stouf, however, was able to set foot on both polar regions.
