Fisheye Rumble in the Pond Chapter 56: The Lomographers Say,

People always think that I’m some kind of strange (freak?) person, but in my opinion I’m the most regular guy walking on this Earth. But one thing that really makes my heart jump with joy is a squirrel grabbing a nut out of my hands. My nose is quite big but I am the perfect son-in-law.

Favorite Fisheye feature: The long time exposure on the fisheye2. It adds so many possibilities… strange distortions, blurs, colorflash’s, lightstreaks, atmosphere…
Expert technique: Fisheye 2 “Off the Hook” (because it was my idea, wuuuaahahah!). Put your Lomography Colorsplash Flash into your hand (that’s right, don’t plug it onto the camera), set the Fisheye 2 to “B” setting, and press the button. Hold the Fisheye 2 in one hand, and the flash in the other. Now fire the flash whenever you want and from any angle you like, while still exposing your shot. The result is often a surprised person – looking at the camera in one hand, then at the flash in the other hand and you can almost see their brain trying to find out what the hell is going on there! Well, most of them find out just a second later when I fire the flash!
What the hell is Lomography? Zillions of images!
Message: Aaaaaaaaaaaaaadriaaaaan!

“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.

    Angela Izzo on Shooting with the Diana Mini, Photographing Musicians, and Then Some

    While many of us can only dream of working with musicians and photographing them, Angela Izzo's job entails exactly that. Apparently, this is a fulfillment of her own dream that she had when she was younger. In this interview, Izzo talks about her beginnings which, of course, included going to as many shows and festivals as she possibly can; some of her most memorable on-the-job-experiences with the likes of The Doors, Lykke Li, Jack White, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and Chris Robinson Brotherhood; her inspirations and other interests; and her love for film photography and Diana Mini. And to those looking into fulfilling their own dreams of working in the same industry, Izzo also shares helpful advice based on her own experiences.
