Kraków in Fisheye

Taken last year, on a short trip to Poland, here are photographs of the Polish city of Kraków, taken with a Fisheye 2! We came across this Graphic Design student’s blog and post and were compelled to share his photographs. So, venture on to the main article and see the city, and it’s highlights, through a 170-degree view!

We stumbled across a series of Lomographs, by Graphic Design student, Phil Earnshaw, documenting Poland’s second largest city – Kraków. The above gallery of cityscapes highlights the vast history of the city, though the various styles and periods of architecture, and focus on the public space found in city squares and parks and gardens (of which Kraków has dozens.

The river is likely the Vistula river, the longest river in Poland.

The above image is of the Auschwitz concentration camp. Owing to the sensitive nature of the images, the rest of Earnshaw’s photographs of the camp can be viewed here, on his website.

The photos, all in all, through their subtle colors, mostly blue in hue, do well to document and present the city in question. The first photograph, with it’s yellow dash of sprocket holes, provides the missing ‘city lights’ image and is nicely printed on the still of the wide river.

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.
