A little while back the friendly people at Rip Curl sent me their Lomography Fisheye camera to try out. The thing is pretty interesting with it’s 170-degree view of the world. So I took it around with me everywhere I went for a while and if the opportunity presented itself I would snap a photo. It was nice shooting film again, it’s been a while, and it is so much more rewarding when you have to go through a whole process just to produce the photo. You also learn to appreciate the imperfections of film when we now live in a digital world where photos come out perfect (in a sense) and we have to do post work to make it look imperfect. Anyway, here are some shots from my first roll I shot with the thing… with the Lomography Color Negative 400 35mm film. Now I know what my life would look like if I lived in a fish bowl.

If you wanna try one of for yourself you can buy them off of the Lomography site. More of my photos from the camera after the jump.
