Favorite Fisheye feature: The Fisheye 2 makes all portraits seem warm and friendly – and all landscapes look like cozy little planets! Expert technique: It’s great for double exposures with the LC-A. Layer the Fisheye image on the LC-A image for a magic center floating inside a solid sea. What the hell is Lomography? Lomography means to be open to the surprises of life and to the secret beauty of the obvious things that hide within our daily existence. Message: When you’re feeling down and need something to warm your heart, load your Fisheye 2 with the first roll that you find and head out for a walk (even on a lousy day) – it’s infallible. When you come back from the lab, your smile is guaranteed.
