Love at First Lomo: My Fisheye 2


My first Lomo camera is a white Fisheye 2. Little did I know that it would start my love affair for analogue photography. Read on after the jump.

Love the colors produced in this shot!

Three years ago – that’s when I first received my Fisheye 2. My mom got it as a present for me on my birthday. (How cool is that?!) And what’s an excited newbie lomographer to do?? Test it out of course!

My camera came with a Fuji Velvia slide film – courtesy of my sister. After looking at the manual on how to load the film and use the camera, I was all set! I was most pleased with the Fisheye’s easy-to-use controls and settings. Perfect for a newbie like me. Also, looking through the fisheye lens viewfinder is a treat! The Mx (multiple exposure) setting is also cool which allows you to take shots on a single frame.

So here are some pictures from my first roll of film. Well, I wasn’t expecting much because it was my first roll. But when I saw it, I was amazed with the results!

Since then, I’ve had many adventures with my Fisheye 2. And I also got a submarine for it for underwater shots.

Even though I already have other analogue cameras (with much fancier controls and dials), I don’t think I’ll ever tire of my Fisheye 2. It’s a great camera to use if you just want to have some point-and-shoot fun!

    My first Lomo was a Fisheye too! This is so much fun, people are always scared when you stand too close to them to take a picture, but that's the point of it ;)
