so two years ago i was thinking about my birthday gift from mr twiggs (yes, i got to pick back then!) and i thought about buying a fisheye lens for my holga! well, i got the lens but it didn’t work that well, because after taking a few photos with it, i didn’t fall for it as i thought i would! as much as i love the squared format coming out of the holga, it’s a small image, if i place the fisheye lens in front of my holga, images come out even smaller and the effect didn’t amuse me that much. of course i may need another try on different conditions!
last year, i was preparing myself for another walk with mr kobe and i was taking the yashica with me. i thought about trying the fisheye lens to see if it fitted and it did! these were some of the results! of course, there was as huge black frame around it, so i cropped that part for this post! i kind of like the dreamy, blurry effect around the circle.
in some prepared way, this can actually look cool on a photo session, to add a little dreamy effect… i might give it a try again afterwards! the things i’m learning with this blog! i get to go through my archives and see those same pictures with a different set of eyes!
so how about you? what have been your experiments with film photography? something you’d like to share?
