The FLY-eye Lomo

9

I'm proud to present you a brand product called "The One-Eyed-Fly Lens", available in almost every variety store and waiting to be tested at your camera!

This it’s very simple. You just need these materials.
- Your camera: might be a LC-A (which is the one I choosed for do this), or almost every analog camera (I hate to say it that even digital camera too) with automatic exposure.
- A kaleidoscope.
- Two hands and one index finger.

Now you might be thinking: Why this guy said “anyone with automatic exposure”?That’s just because usually they have brighter lenses which helps to get a correct exposure when you attach something to the lens that it’s not made for that.Also this fact allows you to use the “One-Eyed-Fly Lens” at night, which is pretty cool too. Anyway, you still can make this in your Diana or any camera without automatic exposure, but just try do it in bright light!

Anyway, it’s very easy: With one hand (the left one it’s better), hold the kaleidoscope in the front of your camera, and with the other hold the camera and press the shutter.

That’s it. Hope you like it!

    To bad there aren't any photo's to go with the story....
    It does remind me of the big fake diamond I got. In front of the lens, it gives a pretty fun view.
    Check it out: www.lomography.com.tr/homes/kamiraze/albums/1670028-diamond
