People always think that I’m some kind of strange (freak?) person, but in my opinion I’m the most regular guy walking on this Earth. But one thing that really makes my heart jump with joy is a squirrel grabbing a nut out of my hands. My nose is quite big but I am the perfect son-in-law.

Favorite Fisheye feature: The long time exposure on the fisheye2. It adds so many possibilities… strange distortions, blurs, colorflash’s, lightstreaks, atmosphere…
Expert technique: Fisheye 2 “Off the Hook” (because it was my idea, wuuuaahahah!). Put your Lomography Colorsplash Flash into your hand (that’s right, don’t plug it onto the camera), set the Fisheye 2 to “B” setting, and press the button. Hold the Fisheye 2 in one hand, and the flash in the other. Now fire the flash whenever you want and from any angle you like, while still exposing your shot. The result is often a surprised person – looking at the camera in one hand, then at the flash in the other hand and you can almost see their brain trying to find out what the hell is going on there! Well, most of them find out just a second later when I fire the flash!
What the hell is Lomography? Zillions of images!
Message: Aaaaaaaaaaaaaadriaaaaan!
