The Accidental Auto-Shutter Button

9

Accidental mistakes are always - I repeat - always loved here in Lomography!

Once there was this case over my Fisheye 2. I was happily excited loading a 35mm film over the back part, covered it and looking for some people to shoot with. The moment I pressed its shutter of it stucked! It doesn’t pop back anymore!

So what I did is that I advanced the film on to the next frame but every time I advance it, since the shutter button is tucked inside, the shutter clicks automatically and I accidentally take pictures. I wasn’t able to find this out since I was forwarding the advance film and hearing clicks of the Fisheye 2 a dozen of times. What I got is some mysterious fisheye-panorama in a crazy way!

Check out the photos! This has been an accident! Good thing the shutter button popped back out and all was back to normal again.

    My Lomo’Instant Quick Tips

    I backed the Kickstarter project for the Lomo’Instant earlier this year and was thrilled to receive it last week. I love how the camera naturally encourages you to experiment with its different features, whether it’s through flashing your multiple exposures with different colors or trying different creative techniques after your shots has been ejected. Here are a few tips from what I’ve discovered from playing with the camera so far (and a couple of tips I want to try out in future)!
