Here's a simple DIY tip for a fisheye pizza pie effect! Create multiple shots in one circle frame. If you're really happy with the results then perhaps you can just cut out a part of your camera. Read on...

Materials Needed:

1. Fisheye 2 Camera loaded with film of choice
2. Cardboard (used folder)
3. Pencil/pen for tracing
4. Scissors

> Use a cardboard and trace the lens cover of your fisheye to have that perfect circle.
> Cut the pattern and equally divide by putting lines on it. (Ruler can be used if desired)
> Cut out a piece of your pizza pie creation. And now its ready to use.

Just use the “eaten” pizza pie by covering the lens in shooting with your fisheye. Create and share a lot of images in just one circle frame. Best used outdoors than using flash indoors to minimize the black/dark areas.

I hope Lomography comes up with a Splitzer for Fisheye cameras but for the meantime, I believe this will do. I now keep this cut-out placed inside the cover lens so I can use it whenever I want to.

OR if you’re brave enough and you wanted to make sure you can always achieve this effect…you can just cut out a piece of your rubber lens cover. In that case all you have to do is just shoot, twist and turn. Let me know if it works. =)
