Meet Andrius Mickus aka @dogma from Lithuania. He'll tell you all about he believes is the Fisheye Baby 110's most special quality.
What was it like using the Fisheye Baby 110 camera?
First of all, I just need to say that I LOVE this cute little thing. When I received the package I was so curious that when I unpacked the box and found this cute little camera, I could not drop the smile off my face :) She is so cute I just want to eat her! I bet everyone who owns one wants to do the same! Shooting with the Fisheye Baby 110 camera is so much fun. It’s like making the world smile, because every person who sees this little thing starts smiling. It’s a great camera for portraits since everyone in the pictures is happy. How can you be not happy when you see such a cutie? :)
Also, shooting with the Fisheye Baby can make you feel a bit like a spy. It’s so small and fits in any pocket. So if you want to make some secret shots, the Fisheye Baby 110 works really well for that.
Any strange or funny moments while using the camera?
The funniest thing which happened was not when I was shooting, but when one of my friends, a young photographer, saw my Fisheye Baby 110 camera. She made me laugh so hard :). She knew that I owned a Fisheye One and Fisheye No. 2 and so she said “Yeeeahh, now I know what happens when you keep two Fisheye Cameras on the same shelf: Fisheye Baby is born! Oh, these naughty Fisheyes” :)
Among all your Fisheye Baby 110 snapshots, which one do you like best and why?
I think the shot I like the most is the one where girls are holding a boy in the air. I love this shot because it captures emotion and that in my opinion, is the most important thing about a picture. Before taking this picture, I kept the Fisheye Baby 110 camera hidden and said, “fellows, I want you to do something special, because I’m going to take a picture now”. They said: “Come on! You don’t even have a camera :)”. I said: “Trust me, I do”. They did this crazy thing, I drew my camera out and everybody was laughing. We had a great result :)
If you could assign a song to your Fisheye 110 photos, what would it be?
How about Bobby McFerrin – Don’t Worry Be Happy? The Fisheye Baby 110 is a smile developing machine and you can see that in the pictures. It’ makes me smile every time I see it, it makes my friends smile when they see it, and it can cheer up everyone even if they are in a bad mood.
Can you share any tips for Fisheye Baby 110 users?
Don’t have much of them at the moment. But I would advise to act fast and take a shot of the first reaction of every person who sees the Fisheye Baby 110 camera for the first time. I bet you that will fix you up with some great portraits and emotions. Just don’t forget to get close – remember it’s a Fisheye ;)
