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 New Petzval Lens is not only known for its elegant brass exterior, but most importantly for the swirly bokeh effect it can bring to photographs. It makes a great portrait lens and performs exceptionally when taking photos of subjects against textured or lit backgrounds, day or night. And it does all these, in wet or dry weather; in any season – winter, spring, summer, or fall.
The New Petzval Art Lens is the perfect portrait lens. But have you ever wondered how it performs in difficult situations with low light and unpredictable movements, such as a concert? Viennese rockstar photographer Matthias Hombauer proves that such a challenge can be surpassed with exceptional results. In Linz, Austria he met the American rock band Portugal. The Man and shot excellent black and white photos! Check out the gallery below and let Matthias teach you how to work with the lens during concerts.

The accidental exposure of the backing paper can give any photograph a retro feel. But having it in a cool black and white portrait, just like today's winning Photo of the Day by erikagrendel, will indeed make it a surefire hit.
