Creative individuals talk about their love for Lomography and of course, the Fisheye!
37, freelance photographer
My mother was a beauty queen and I’ve never seen my Dad, so I was raised a trust-fund baby, which allowed me to do anything and everything that I want (for bad and for worse). Recently, I have been stuck for the last 20 years as an 80’s rock n’ roll child. I now live in Tokyo – taking pictures of DJs and rock bands for fun. My friends are jealous, but I wouldn’t recommend the lifestyle.
Favorite Fisheye feature: The lens, baby! Everything below, above and around you is at the mercy of your creativity.
Expert technique: The combination of the fisheye lens, the fisheye flash with a colored gel filter of your choice stuck in front, some creativity, and cross-processed slide film can often lead to the photographic bounds of reality being s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d!
What the hell is Lomography? Wicked Respect!
Message: A message to the yet-to-be Lomographer browsing this book by chance at a friend’s house while waiting for him and her to get ready: “Borrow” the book, buy a Fisheye camera, study the shots, replicate them, find your own style, push that, then enjoy one of the funniest and coolest cameras ever. Don’t forget to scare your grandma. Respect!
