Fisheye Rumble in the Pond Chapter 21: The Lomographers say: ”The Fisheye, the flash and Freddie Mercury – can you ask for more?”

Creative individuals talk about their love for Lomography and of course, the Fisheye!

I’ll tell you a secret. I really hate fish! I’m even afraid of them. But somehow I’ve managed to overcome my fear and really love the Fisheye. I can even touch the camera – which is not at all possible with real fish, and I don’t flee when I see the Fisheye or jump on somebody while screaming out loud. That’s all you need to know, because I’m also in the dark about all the rest.

Favorite Fisheye feature: The shutter button, because my fisheye doesn’t have any other feature – besides the flash – which I don’t like that much. It makes me look even more pale.
Expert technique: Wait before spooling to the next image – because I already have plenty of black images.
What the hell is Lomography? well, erm, hm, it means loads to me. I mean, that’s obvious, no?
Message: It’s a sexy camera, I call her Susi.
