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.

    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.
