Experiencing the Fisheye 2 lomo camera brings about two basic things: fun and excitement!
Experiencing the Fisheye 2 camera brings about two basic things: fun and excitement. Fun, in the sense of peeping through the view finder and seeing the world in a different perspective, literally; and excitement, in awaiting what comes out as soon as the film gets developed.
Playing around with the Fisheye 2 exercises your creativity and imagination. Ordinary views can become obscure in a cool way. Its multiple exposure function leads to a whole new visual delight. And lastly, its long exposure capacity enables stillness in motion. This camera is surely an amazing companion to walk around with, wherever and whenever.
Here’s the first roll of film shot by my Fisheye 2 named “Frankey”. Hope you like it!
When experimenting with new rolls of film, it's often the first roll that brings both the most joy and the most trial & tribulation. We want to start highlighting some successful first attempts here on our Magazine with our films. The first in this line up is Brian Bruno aka Brunoroids.
Film swaps often produce the most exciting photographs. More than physically exchanging rolls, it is a collaboration of ideas and stories between two people who share the same love for experimental photography.
Chicago based five-piece garage band Twin Peaks recently released their third album “Down in Heaven.” They’ve had two sold out UK tours and are currently touring the US. We gave them a Fisheye No. 2 camera and talked to founder Cadien Lake James a.k.a Big Tuna.
12 New Media students from the University of Texas, all armed with Lomography cameras, travelled to New York City for an advanced studio art course in May 2016. They each shot one roll of film in a LomoKino per day, and the results were exciting and diverse. Read more here.
By far the oddest-looking camera I own, the Electric Eye is an auto-exposure viewfinder camera made by Bell & Howell in the late 1950s. I picked one up online and ended up with another one, that came with a very cool, retro looking carrying case, from my grandfather. It took a little while to try these two out but after running some film I found that this camera is a lot of fun to shoot with.
Because here’s the thing about film photography that I doubt a digital camera can give you: Permanence, photographs that truly and literally stay with you, not just in a physical form but also in your head and in your heart.
