My Lomo Milestones: The Fisheye Fever

It all started in Barcelona. A week away with friends, a long term curiosity, and a friend with a fisheye. Needless to say, I fell in love.

I had been contemplating getting a Fisheye camera for a long time. I was mesmerized by that odd distortion in the pictures. So when two years ago my friend lent me hers in a trip to Barcelona, I knew I couldn’t wait any longer: I had to have it. So, I arrived in Portugal and I headed to the Embassy Store in Lisbon and I did it. I got my lovely Fisheye and smiled ear to ear all the way back home.

So here, I share with you how it all started, in Barcelona:

And how it kept going! From the first roll:

To special days:

To music festivals:

To endless summer days:

To meeting new places:

To experiments:

And memorable moments with friends:

Ever since I bought it, it’s been the one camera that has gone everywhere with me. Looking back on this short period of time, I feel like my Fisheye could tell all my stories, all the big happenings in my life: good and bad, big or small…all in Lomo.

What about you? Do you have one, or maybe two special cameras that have seen all the little bits and pieces in your life? Do you have that one camera that registers not only your personal milestones, but also your little steps? Tell me and everyone else about it!

Fisheye No. 2 has a 170-degree wide angle view and stunning barrel distortion. Now with a hotshoe and multiple and long exposure capabilities, the world’s greatest compact Fisheye camera is now more amazing than you ever thought possible! Available in different colours and special designs.

    love the article :) i´ve just got fisheye and i can´t wait to see the first pictures :) i´d like also ask for the fisheye doubles - what did you shoot first, the flowers or the streets? thanx:)

    really? i thought it was the other way :) do you think it would work if the fisheye pics are first and the flowers second and they´d show up in the edges of first layer?

    @kate21 i think you could do that :) if you shoot the other way around i think you'd get some double exposure effect over the fisheye parts but much more faint than what i got, and of course the corners would be exposed
