Make Your Pictures Roll!


Fisheye Camera / Lens + Fisheye Circle Cutter = Circular Photos!

You’ve read the Fisheye Circle Cutter review by elefteria and now you have all these circular photos. But what should you do with them?

Make them into a rolling ball!

What you’ll need:
- photos
- Fisheye Circle Cutter
- adhesive (glue stick or double sided tape)

If you don’t have a Fisheye Circle Cutter then you’ll need these:
- a bowl or something round to trace
- pencil
- scissors

1. Cut out your circles (using whatever devices you have – I don’t have a Fisheye Cutter, yet) You can cut out as few as 4 or as many as 9 (I have only tried 4 and 8).

2. Fold the circles in half (it’s best to run something over the fold to make sure there’s a crease).

3. Adhere the folded circles back to back, lining them up carefully. (You can use glue or double sided tape. I found the tape to have a more instant effect, which was handy).

4. Roll the photo ball to your camera to be sure that it works. And you’re done!

Lomography’s Fisheye One is the world’s first compact 35mm fisheye camera, and it’s now dressed in sparkling white! With a built-in flash and a 170-degree view, Fisheye One White will certainly give you cool circular shots. See it with the rest of our Fisheye cameras here!

    If you put a semi-thick rod in the middle area, it could be a cute paper weight!

    A few of these would make for a real cool hanging collage
