Fisheye one #1

Finally! I had my first roll of film developed yesterday that were all shot with my lomography fisheye one. Some of them turned out well and others didn’t. I learned a few things though after seeing the results.

when shooting with this kind of film – Color Negative ISO 100:
1. shoot it on a bright sunny day – outdoors
2. never forget to advance the film before you shoot again or it will only under-expose the shot
3. use flash always when shooting indoors


And for this kind of camera:
1. never go too close to a subject as the lens will give a black effect on the right lower part (see photo of my mailbox)
2. use higher ISO film for indoors
3. don’t use viewfinder as it will only make the fisheye effect off-center or could it be how I loaded the film?(more to the right)

Camera: Lomography Fisheye One
Film: Lomography CN 100 35mm
Flash: built-in
Processing: Color Negative C41

  1. hehe! I think your results look very good! I haven’t developed fisheye (i have a baby <3) in a while, so I'm worried all my photos will actually be blurry and dark.. I only developed once before, and though I learned a lot too, but now it's all forgotten… and I can't even remember what ISO the film in my camera is :-/ *P: nr 4 is showing 'golden hour' wonderfully

    • Oh, a baby fisheye! I was about to buy that one but I found it is not using a 35mm film so I didn’t. Hoping to see the results from yours, soon. 😀

  2. Fisheye is so cool, but I can imagine that it’s more complicated to use than it seems. You did a great job with your “test”. 🙂

    • Yes, now I seldom use the camera, I leave it to the young lady to carry it around wherever she goes ‘coz she loves the effect more than I do. 🙂 Thanks for the visit J.

    • Oh a lot of us do the film photography these days… it’s kind of in a hype or in trend again Sally. I know what you mean about being thrilled on seeing the results after a few many days. 🙂 Thanks for the visit.

    • Thank you Lisa. Yeah, nice for wacky kids and teens I guess. I yet have to use it with them when around. 🙂
