Moonpies

18

Fisheye the sky to make a moon in the day or night. I don’t think I invented this, I think my lomofriends did, either way, it's something I enjoyed doing and you should too.

I took a double exposure, one of the sky using a fisheye lens and one of the ground without it. I think the results are pretty cool but next thing you know everyone is like , oh man, cool moon. Moon I’m thinking? What moon? And yeah you think about it and sure it does look like a big ass spooky moon. So yeah, I just kept trying it.

The basic secrets of this tipster is that you take a fisheye of the sky and then a regular shot of something darker, usually the ground. You can do this buy doing a roll of the sky with your Fisheye camera then reloading into a regular cam and double away with shots of the ground. You could also use a double exposure cam with a fisheye accessory lens or even a doorspy for your fisheye shot and then just take it off for the next.

There aren’t that many rules, sometimes you can take a picture of the sky twice or even do triples with twinkle lights for stars, I mean whatever, do what you do.

    I’d only heard rumors of the Magic Tree. I had no idea if they were true and, honestly, I’m still half disbelieving of it despite the story I’m about to tell you. If you have faith in what I say, I’m grateful. If you don’t, I bear no ill will towards you. But either way, please shout out in the comments what secrets or sophistries you think I found through its twisting branches.

    My list of resolutions for 2015 consists of 12 projects, one for every month. In January, I tried some camera add-ons. If you want to add a bit of extra bling to your pictures, you can put something either in front of or behind your lens. In this case, I did both.

    Sometimes when taking pictures I get addressed by strangers either because of my cameras or because they don't want me to shoot something they claim they have responsibility for. But having the police on my back was a new experience.

    Make Your Own Lomo'Instant Scan Adapter!

    Are you annoyed by Newton's rings that appear when you're scanning your Lomo'Instant shots? I am, so I came up with the idea to create something to ensure that the photos don't touch the glass, but aren't too far away from it either because of the sharpness.

    The Magical Diana F+

    "Magical" here means that every time I use the Diana F+, the results are always beyond both my expectations and imagination. That's why I always use it when I feel like doing something different. It has never failed me since day one; I even always bring this camera during my trips!

    Pushing Boundaries: Multiple Exposing Film Soup

    As you may have read in my previous article, I truly fell in love with Lomography when I combined my Fisheye camera with an old Canon AE-1 for magical photographic results. Last summer, I took so many pictures of flowers that it started to become almost boring for me. My waning interest and the coming winter meant that I had to figure out something else to do with my 35mm film.

    Where are you headed to this summer? Where I'm from summer has ended too soon, so I'm still daydreaming of sand and seafoam. I decided to check out the archives for some cool beach-y snapshots and came across a lot of interesting underwater photos! Check out my finds after the jump; hopefully this list will inspire you to grab a Fisheye Sub or a Krab, along with your Fisheye cameras and LC-A+, for some underwater adventure.

    The Magic Yet To Come: Part 1

    Here’s a random and rather mysterious tale for you folks. Just the other day, I was at a local bar with a few friends. It was much like any other evening; we were sipping a couple of cocktails, recounting our adventures, falling over ourselves with laughter and half-drunkenly meditating on the meaning of life (a scientist once told me it’s 42 by the way). But then something truly strange happened. Read on to hear my story and please make a comment with your guess at the end!
