I’ve had my Fisheye Lens for only a few weeks and it’s one of my favourite tools already .
If you always wanted to have half of the world on one photo , this might be the perfect toy for you and your Diana . The lens comes with a viewfinder but I don’t use it . Whatever is around you will be on the photo anyway ( somehow .. ) , and who doesnt love surprises ??
This super wide lens makes wonderful 180-degree circular photos . Get real close ( and I mean REAL close !!) to the object and what you get is a beautifully blurred image. In combination with medium format film you get real and full sized round pictures , wonderful !!! You might wanna try overlapping fisheye-photos , I love them , it’s a nice way to do portraits . I haven’t done doubles with the fisheye lens , but this should be lots of fun , too . The Fisheye Lens is a great toy I can recommend to every Diana owner !! :-)
It's been over a month since I left Vienna after spending a fantastic week with all the 2016 TEN AND ONE winners. Looking back at the photos I captured brings a smile to my face as I remember the fun memories of the experience I had with my fellow Lomographers.
Last week, the TEN AND ONE winners flew in from all over the world to enjoy a week of workshops and exchange about their love for photography. I had the pleasure of spending a day with them and the Lomography staff, going on one of the famous LomoWalks.
It's just a few nights of sleep away for Halloween, yet Monday continues to drag. This week's no special, but if you're at your wit's end and can't wait for the month-ender celebrations of extravagant horror and garb, start the madness with a zany hat to top it off now.
I have come back after a week of my TEN AND ONE Artistic Residency at Lomography HQ in Vienna with my head full of ideas and projects that I would like to start and try out. By the end of the week I have a book (almost) full of tips, anecdotes and pure Lomographic love.
What delightful achievement it would be if one can mimic the painterly strokes such as Claude Monet or Vincent van Gogh! Try nature painting with the Daguerreotype Achromat 2.9/64 Art Lens and its supreme Lumiere and Aquarelle aperture plates for one-of-a-kind bokeh and special effects.
There are hundreds of festivals cropping up in the UK over the next few weeks and the Fisheye 2 is the perfect camera to document the fun. Here are some tips on making the mos of this 35mm 170 degree camera!
There's barely anything but a rich diversity of nature In this corner of the world. Patagonia is a different kind of wilderness that breaks expectations. It isn't for the normal traveler, but photographer Johannes Huwe is one of the rare few who managed to capture its mystery.
I was given the Daguerreotype Achromat 2.9/64 by Lomography to take on my vacation to Switzerland and shoot a series. Back at home, I was able to take a couple of more pictures, before I had to send this amazing art lens back.
Lomography had a quick chat with him about his experience using the Daguerreotype Achromat Art Lens, getting older with a passion for photography, and his photos of Singapore's national flower — the Orchid.
As part of the 10th anniversary celebrations of the Diana F+ we interviewed Denise Grays, a US based film photography fanatic who recently set up #dianaday on twitter. She shared some of her favourite shots and talked about her passion for this dreamy, soft focus camera.
