Caption: Get yourself ready for a whole lot of silliness multiplied by 170 degrees of pure fun as we get really, really close with the Lomography Fisheye. What happens next? Who nose!
Welcome to another round of Photo Highlights, true believers!
This time around we’re going to look at the fantastic Lomography Fisheye! Back then, the “fisheye effect” on photos were confined to uber expensive professional lenses and armchair post-processing. But not anymore! For all of your wide needs, Lomography’s Fisheye is here to serve. Aside from expansive landscape views and enthralling sunsets, what else can you capture with this quirky little camera? Candid closeups of course! Owing to its wide angle of view, it can focus really close but it distorts the image as well, making noses and other appendages humongous! Though some might not desire this, it sure does look funny!

The next time you find yourself wandering around town with your Lomo'Instant camera, here's a neat trick that you can do: choose a specific area and quickly snap an instant photo. Once it develops, hold it in the exact position or angle where you took the instant photo, and take a standard photo using your favorite camera. Does it sound confusing? Ah, well ... let's just show you how it's done! Check out the photos after the jump.
When a photographer encounters a pair, an instinct rushes in, "Is this a special, intimate moment I just stumbled on?" Or else, those accidents of two objects, two birds, two swaying plants camping together especially for your photo. This might not be the case, but it's still a pleasant thing for patterns and quirks to find their way into an everyday shot.
It's Tipstember! For this month, we will be awarding 25 fat piggies to every tipster article that gets published on the Lomography Magazine. You can share tips on composition, lighting, film experiments and camera modifications; or maybe techniques for shooting portraits, landscapes, still life and even wildlife! If you don't have tricks up your sleeve, however, you can still contribute to the Magazine and let your voice be heard. Here are some suggestions.
We met our new LomoAmigo Luka Tacon when we danced to the hypnotic beats of his duo Heartbreaker at our Lomo'Instant Wide Launch Party in NYC. Now, the brooklyn-based DJ and electronic music producer is preparing for an EPIC Lover's Ball at House of Yes with his friends at Might Get Weird, experimenting with the La Sardina and LC-A, and feeling the Latin rhythms of Costa Rica. Read more about his inspirations and how he feels analog equipment, whether it be for music or photography, has something that digital just doesn't. As a special bonus, you can listen to his exclusive Heartbreaker set!
