Fisheye the sky to make a moon in the day or night. I don’t think I invented this, I think my lomofriends did, either way, it’s something I enjoyed doing and you should too.

I took a double exposure, one of the sky using a fisheye lens and one of the ground without it. I think the results are pretty cool but next thing you know everyone is like , oh man, cool moon. Moon I’m thinking? What moon? And yeah you think about it and sure it does look like a big ass spooky moon. So yeah, I just kept trying it.

The basic secrets of this tipster is that you take a fisheye of the sky and then a regular shot of something darker, usually the ground. You can do this buy doing a roll of the sky with your Fisheye camera then reloading into a regular cam and double away with shots of the ground. You could also use a double exposure cam with a fisheye accessory lens or even a doorspy for your fisheye shot and then just take it off for the next.

There aren’t that many rules, sometimes you can take a picture of the sky twice or even do triples with twinkle lights for stars, I mean whatever, do what you do.
