Fisheye Full Pictures

2

Fisheye or Fisheye 2 cameras give us spectacular pictures in a circle, but one day I thought I could use that black space and obtain a rectangular image full of color.

I decided to shoot a roll of Fuji Sensia 100 and to cover the black space around the picture with textures so the whole rectangle will be full of color. For this purpose I first used my pink Fisheye 2 and then my LOMO LC-A+.

This is really easy and you can find the materials at home.

I used:

  • A minimized printed version of a picture took with a Fisheye camera.
  • A piece of cardboard or paper, I used paper from an old magazine.
  • Scissors.
  • Tape.

First of all, when you place the film in the Fisheye camera, you have to mark somehow the way the film is placed, in my case I used strips of tape and placed them to mark the rectangle where the picture will be in the film, other people take a picture of how they placed the film, so that is up to you but you need to mark how you place the film.

This is what I did after using the roll in the Fisheye camera:

  • I printed a minimized version of a picture took with a Fisheye camera to mark the piece of paper and to mark the camera so I know how to place the circle.
  • I cut the paper in a way that the circle took with the Fisheye camera will be covered.
  • I left flaps at the top and bottom of the piece of paper.
  • I placed the tape in these flaps and placed the piece of paper in the camera.
  • I placed the film I already used with my Fisheye 2 into de LC-A+.

I shoot mostly textures to do like a frame around the pictures. Here are the best results, I hope you try this tip and enjoy shooting pictures both times!

The world’s greatest compact Fisheye camera is back in pink! The Fisheye No. 2 Pink Edition has a 170-degree wide-angle view, bulb setting for multiple exposures, and a hotshoe. See all the Fisheye No. 2 colours and designs here!

But it is his ice skating pictures that I am most fascinated with. Using my own lens, I give him a modern tribute.

    Il Giardino dei Tarrochi: A Lomographer’s Delight

    Of course, Italy makes a great destination for taking photos. But what if there was a place where you could find stunning motifs, impressive colors, and the ideal mixture of nature and arts all at once? What if I told you that there is a place like that: a garden full of art in the middle of nowhere?

    Cinematographer Michal Dabal on the Petzval Lens

    Here’s what happens before we interview a photographer. We gush about the work though we have yet to find out the cameras and processes behind the brilliant composition or the light architecture. And even when they haven’t used a Lomo camera, we feature them anyway. But every once in a while comes a pro who uses one of our premium lenses at work and our fun cameras off-duty. This makes us mighty glad, more so when their images are good and worth sharing. We count cinematographer Michal Dabal's work among them.

    The New Petzval 58 Bokeh Control Lens at the  Lunar New Year Parade

    Since Lomography launched its new Petzval 58 Bokeh Control Art Lens project on Kickstarter, we've been seeing a variety of pictures, from images of snow monkeys in Japan to behind-the-scenes shots of New York Fashion Week. Many of these pictures were shot with digital cameras, but we've yet to see how the Petzval 58 performs on an analog Canon Rebel camera loaded with black and white, and x-pro film. Join us on a trip through the heart of New York's Chinatown during the Lunar New Year Parade.

    Light is Magical: A Talk With Li Hui

    Photography is not only an act of documentation or communication, it is also a way of seeing the world. The camera opens our eyes and lets us see what lies behind the obvious, and we start looking at things as potential subjects of a photograph. Every leak of light unveils secrets that talented photographers turn into a piece of art. Li Hui is one of those gifted artists. We talked to her about her work and her sensitive photographs that picture a wonderful vulnerability.

    Registering Moments With the Lomo'Instant

    Some people say instant photos bring about a feeling of nostalgia. Although I often use the Lomo'Instant Camera with different crazy accessories such as the Splitzer and color gels, I have to agree there is something about it — dreamy vignettes maybe? — that always makes me want to go back in time and experience it all over again. In the name of analogue photography and good old memories, we passed by some classic spots in Vienna and took one shot after the other. Take a closer look at our gallery.
