I am a young budding student being sent into the wild of the photographic world! I come from a town best known for hanging a monkey, I work in a local pub in the town where I meet a lot of women and I would also like to mention my addiction for crunchy nut cornflakes.

Favorite Fisheye feature: It has got to be the multi-exposure on the Fisheye 2 in particular. You can create mind blowing multi-layered masterpieces with a flick of this button. No more winding back the film and producing misaligned pictures!
Expert technique: Night fevers (first and second curtain flash)! You capture the fresh face of someone when the first flash goes off, and then you get all the amazing colours as you leave the shutter open a bit longer, then when you fire the hot shoe flash you capture a crazy face bursting out of the first one!
What the hell is Lomography? It is something you can rely on for creating wonderful, amazing, mad pictures that you could only dream of with any digital camera!
Message: The Fisheye camera invites you in to a whole new world of opportunities and will definitely blow your mind away. Lomography will fuel your addiction with its genius mechanical designs and lovely Lomo people.

“Rumble in the Pond” is a 368-page hardcover book bursting with 170-degree Fisheye madness. Inside your will find exclusive tips and tricks, Lomographer profiles & interviews, an informative history of Fisheye lenses and goldfish breeding, and several hundred eye-popping barrel-distorted fisheye images.
