Fisheye Full Pictures

Fisheye or Fisheye 2 cameras give us spectacular pictures in a circle, but one day I thought I could use that black space and obtain a rectangular image full of color.

I decided to shoot a roll of Fuji Sensia 100 and to cover the black space around the picture with textures so the whole rectangle will be full of color. For this purpose I first used my pink Fisheye 2 and then my LOMO LC-A+.

This is really easy and you can find the materials at home.

I used:

  • A minimized printed version of a picture took with a Fisheye camera.
  • A piece of cardboard or paper, I used paper from an old magazine.
  • Scissors.
  • Tape.

First of all, when you place the film in the Fisheye camera, you have to mark somehow the way the film is placed, in my case I used strips of tape and placed them to mark the rectangle where the picture will be in the film, other people take a picture of how they placed the film, so that is up to you but you need to mark how you place the film.

This is what I did after using the roll in the Fisheye camera:

  • I printed a minimized version of a picture took with a Fisheye camera to mark the piece of paper and to mark the camera so I know how to place the circle.
  • I cut the paper in a way that the circle took with the Fisheye camera will be covered.
  • I left flaps at the top and bottom of the piece of paper.
  • I placed the tape in these flaps and placed the piece of paper in the camera.
  • I placed the film I already used with my Fisheye 2 into de LC-A+.

I shoot mostly textures to do like a frame around the pictures. Here are the best results, I hope you try this tip and enjoy shooting pictures both times!

The world’s greatest compact Fisheye camera is back in pink! The Fisheye No. 2 Pink Edition has a 170-degree wide-angle view, bulb setting for multiple exposures, and a hotshoe. See all the Fisheye No. 2 colours and designs here!

    I have tried to do something like this with my LC-A+ and the Fisheye lens but it didn't come out the way I expected, the picture in the dark areas is really dark...
