Want to get in deep in the heat of the action? Use a Fisheye on your next outing and get up close and personal!
It’s common knowledge already but it bears repeating. The Fisheye is wide. It sees the world through 170⁰ of fabulous Fisheye distortion. This means that you have to man up and get up close. You aren’t doing yourself a favor by shooting faraway subjects with the Fisheye – they’ll only look like tiny, inconsequential specks of dust in the horizon. I’ll use one of my old photos as an example:
It’s one big meh. I’m not telling you not to take landscape photos with your Fisheye, though. I’m simply reminding you to be… mindful of your shot selection. Each and every one of our Lomographic cameras have their strengths and weaknesses. It’s up to us to make sure that we make our cameras give us the very best of what they have to offer.
For the Fisheye, my advice is this: get in as close as you can, with as much light as you have. Even if your subject is less than a foot away, the wide angle of view that your Fisheye has will take care of you and do the heavy lifting. Learn to trust it to do what it does best and you’ll reap the rewards. Try it out!
We are so excited to have been invited to be in the activities tent at Photoville from 4-8 PM on Thursday, September 22. You'll have the chance to hang out with us in beautiful DUMBO, get up close and personal with Lomography Art lenses, and play photography bingo!
Stop asking questions and start making statements. We have teamed up with the historic W Washington DC in conjunction with FotoDC to create a wall during the week of FotoWeekDC - one of the biggest photography festivals in the US. Take inspiration and use your imagination to bring the W values of fashion, music and design to life for a Lomowall that will be created in the Living Room (lobby) of W Washington DC.
Snow-capped or covered in lush greenery, monumental or of smaller proportions, mountains create the most picturesque natural landscapes. The folks at The Gap Magazine are no stranger to their beauty and will showcase such visual splendor in their next issue. Do you have a scenic photo of mountains? Share your pictures with us and get featured in the December issue of The Gap.
