Fisheye Rumble in the Pond Chapter 61: Lomographers Speak Out

Creative individuals talk about their love for Lomography and of course, the Fisheye!

Hi! I’m Roseli!! I’m a 37 year-old little girl who loves poetry and literature, music (blues, jazz, opera and popular Brazilian music), travelling, and of course photography! I’m a Professor of Economics at São Paulo University, and I really like teaching and researching economics in an underdeveloped country filled with social problems. Ok… I confess… I have been addicted to Lomography since July 2005!

Favorite Fisheye feature: That’s a really difficult question, because Fisheyes are absolutely and completely wonderful!!! If I have to choose it would be the wide angle they both (Fisheye 1 and 2) yield, and the new viewfinder – I love seeing everything as a ball!!!
Expert technique: My favourite technique is the multiple exposure option that the Fisheye 2 offers – it gets me crazy! The most interesting experiment that I did using this technique was shooting a wide view (from a high point) twice. The first layer was normal and the second was pointed down. The results are so cool!!!
What the hell is Lomography? Exploration and feelings.
Message: Lomography means Lomographers, all of us are addicted by one or more Lomo-cams, it doesn’t matter at all. The important thing is that we are the best, the most warmhearted, and inspired virtual community that I’ve ever taken part in.
