Lomo Ringflash: Reigniting My Passion for Fisheye No. 2


I recently bought a Lomography Ringflash with my piggies and though I have only processed one roll so far – it has become my top camera accessory.

I had lost interest recently in my Fisheye 2 camera and for months and months it sat on a shelf gathering dust. The main reason for this is that over the winter I have been reluctant to use it with the flash because of the way the position of the flash creates a dark spot in one corner as can be seen below.

I had started to use the Fisheye again but only when sunlight would allow (a common problem for photography in the UK!) and I still didn’t use it with a flash really. Then I saw some shots taken with the Lomography Ringflash on a Fisheye and decided I fancied a go myself. When I read in the Lomography online shop that it was also compatible with my Diana, Holga and LC-A, it was sold.

The only night I have had it out so far I was all alone, but did not let this stop me from having a go with all the various gel filters and I actually really enjoyed myself.

I am sooooooo happy with the results and I cannot wait to get the photos developed from where I have used it on my Holga and LC-A. It has reignited my passion for my Fisheye and I now do not want to put it down.
It is so easy to use and I found that the flash charges up pretty fast to say that there are 4 individual flashes to fire. I also think that for the price this is a really good buy, particularly if, like me, you enjoy taking pictures of people.

Thanks Lomography Ringflash!

    Yeah Ringflash is great! I was given my Fisheye and some days later I bought the Ringflash. I love how good they work together!
