Creative individuals talk about their love for Lomography and of course, the Fisheye!

I’m a newly-educated graduate from Burapha University, “Gobblin” is my nickname from the faculty. They use such names to show that there are close feelings. My real nickname is “Gob”. Unfortunately, that name is pretty common both at my university and in Thailand as a whole. So, everyone decided to add a little to the end. Hence, “Gobblin”.

Favorite Fisheye feature: My most favourite feature is the fisheye lens. When I shoot pictures of myself, my face looks cool – or sometimes very funny. It’s the only thing that I can use to reduce my level of handsome-ness (which is quite high!)
Expert technique: It’s top secret. Promise me that you won’t tell anyone. The Fisheye is so splendid for girls who need more inches on their boobs and butts. No surgery is required – just a Fisheye. Of course, I jest.
Lomography? Lomo. Is fun.
Message: Don’t worry about any rules, don’t miss all the fun, don’t lie to yourself, don’t believe “don’t think just shoot”.

“Rumble in the Pond” is a 368-page hardcover book bursting with 170-degree Fisheye madness. Inside your will find exclusive tips and tricks, Lomographer profiles & interviews, an informative history of Fisheye lenses and goldfish breeding, and several hundred eye-popping barrel-distorted fisheye images.

    Many among us live double lives -- a member of the labor force by day, a passionate go-getter by night. it's difficult to break into the art world when you need money -- so most of us keep our creative lives as hobbies. For the photographer, he can do a little bit of both simultaneously.
