Fisheye Rumble in the Pond Chapter 61: Lomographers Speak Out

Creative individuals talk about their love for Lomography and of course, the Fisheye!

Hi! I’m Roseli!! I’m a 37 year-old little girl who loves poetry and literature, music (blues, jazz, opera and popular Brazilian music), travelling, and of course photography! I’m a Professor of Economics at São Paulo University, and I really like teaching and researching economics in an underdeveloped country filled with social problems. Ok… I confess… I have been addicted to Lomography since July 2005!

Favorite Fisheye feature: That’s a really difficult question, because Fisheyes are absolutely and completely wonderful!!! If I have to choose it would be the wide angle they both (Fisheye 1 and 2) yield, and the new viewfinder – I love seeing everything as a ball!!!
Expert technique: My favourite technique is the multiple exposure option that the Fisheye 2 offers – it gets me crazy! The most interesting experiment that I did using this technique was shooting a wide view (from a high point) twice. The first layer was normal and the second was pointed down. The results are so cool!!!
What the hell is Lomography? Exploration and feelings.
Message: Lomography means Lomographers, all of us are addicted by one or more Lomo-cams, it doesn’t matter at all. The important thing is that we are the best, the most warmhearted, and inspired virtual community that I’ve ever taken part in.

“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.

The Lomography community is no stranger to these instances. In fact, the community is filled with brilliant minds who are always ready to refine existing techniques and look for innovative ways to express their visions and ideas. Here are just a few of the creative lomographers we've come to love over the years.
