Another View with the Tunnelvision Lens

2012-10-10 8

Usually what you get from the Tunnelvision Lens is a blur effect on the edge, like stretched and focus on the middle, or you could do a macro shot. Yes that’s the usual view from this lens, but there is another view. It is shadowy, mystic, surreal, when I see these pictures. It’s like multiple exposure, but when you pay attention it’s not like two frames merging into one frame. Yes this is another view that you could get with tunnelview lens from lomography.

Now, how do you acquire this kind of pictures? Firstly for the freedom of movement, you might want to use it with your SLR camera. It is more convenient with big ring lens above 55mm.

What i do is to put the Tunnelvision Lens on the ring filter of my lens, for easy exposure, try to get focus first, then put the lens on the filter, and move around the filter until you get what you want.

But how about if you use a small ring lens, what you could do is to hold the Tunnelvision at the front of your lens, and do the same thing until you get what you want, of course get focus first.

Well, what kind of response from the DSLR user after they see your picture, they will say NICE editing, wkwkwkwk, but don’t get mad to them what you could do is say to them, NO Edit!

and if DSLR user ask you how you made this picture, you could say to them, it is because analog is the future! hahahahahahahahah

Ps: As usual, Have Fun, dont mind my tipster

    Wow ! A picture of how you put the tunnelvision in front of your lens would have been nice though.

    These ate amazing photos, but sorry, I can't figure out what a Tunnelvision lens is.

    Does it work because the tunnelvision lens is smaller than tha the camera lens, so it doesn't cover everything? Like on the 3rd picture here:…

    @qlamerand I agree with the picture!

    @sarah-addison-dobard : yup, you found the lens
    @qlamerand: just put the lens in front of your big ring lens, if you use lomo camera just hold it in the front of your lens, just from pictures up there, pay attention to the subject that focus, that define your lens positions.
    @aguillem : same concept, but different view

    when you say "in front", does it mean in contact, or with a distance?

    @aguillem: if you are using big ring lens on your SLR, you might want to put the tunnelvision in contact with your filter ring. But if you use lomo cameras..just hold the tunnelvision lens at the front of your camera lens, with a distance, ahhh yes remember..try to get focus first, and remember again the focus length to measure is the distance from your tunnelvision to your subject or object.
