Hi, I’m Fab and I am totally Lomo-addicted! I discovered Lomo in 1999 and I am still here with you. What’s the next step? Who cares – I’ll be there regardless!

Favorite Fisheye feature: In every Fisheye shot, you just get MORE!
Expert technique: Try the SHOT from the TOP! Try to shoot your subject from the top (distance 8/12 cm) and ask them to “look at the camera.” In this way you will get people with big heads and little bodies – just like little kids. Shoot with the flash to blind them while you’re at it.
One phrase: What does Lomography mean to you? Memento audere semper —> remember to always dare.
Message: Don’t try to get the same shots as others… find your own style! With Lomography, the possibilities are endless!
