Best £10 a Fisheye Fan Could Spend

I recently got a Fisheye Circle Cutter as a present and have been chuffed to bits with it and have gone mad decorating my office with funny Fisheye shots.

The Fisheye photos I saw on Lomography.com were some of the main reasons I ever got involved really, I love the way they distort reality and give really unpredictable results. It was therefore no surprise that it was a silver Fisheye No. 2 camera that was among the first in my analogue collection.

For a few years I just stuffed the beautiful 6 × 4 prints into square frames with the large black borders but I always knew something was missing. That something was a Fisheye Circle Cutter, which my fiance got me as a gift when I started a new job last year. At first I thought it was a bit pointless as I could do this with scissors but I was so wrong. The Fisheye Circle Cutter makes neater lines and it is so much easier to cut your fisheye shots out en masse.

I now don’t use frames, let alone the boring square variety, I just stick my perfectly cut out fisheye shots on my noticeboard, giving a really cool effect and always causing people to stop by my desk and admire.
