A fish-eye view

J1's friend T bought her a pawsome Lomo fisheye camera for Christmas. It's not a digital camera so we had to wait for AGES to use up the film and get the prints developed. Also, you can't really use the viewfinder cos the lens cuts across it, so all the shots are trial and error. Our first pictures were in artsy black and white. Some of them are quite scary.

Hiya J
Those fisheye photos are just brilliant, especially the last one. You look kinda eerie. You're right about the shots being scary, some look like they're from a horror movie.
Thanks for sharing.

Hugs and tail wags

OOh, some of those are kind of retro Hitchcock-y, ya know. We like them, but we're glad J1 has another camera so we can see you clearly.

Hehe Mistress can't even use her digi camera properly. Although she used manage a Serious Little Ruffruff camera. I may have got the meaning of the abbreviation wrong there. You will have to tell me as you are more camera savvy than me.

Cool! They look like old time photos from like the 1930's. I think our digital camera has a fish eye setting. I'll have to try it out.
