Experiments in 360 Degree Photography
I’m a big fan of the camera company Lomography and I love the stuff that sell, especially some of their more interesting camera concepts.  The one camera I’ve been wanting to get for age’s is their 360 degree Lomo Spinner.  As the name suggests you use the camera to take a 360 degree picture using multiple frames from a roll of 35mm film.  But it had always been a little pricey for me.

So when Lomography decided to reduce the price recently I jumped at it and became the proud owner of my own spinning camera.  This past week I loaded up the camera with a roll of 400 ISO film and wandered around London.  And I absolutely love the results - definitely worth the occasional odd look from strangers.  Such a different perspective from normal photography.

As it was my first roll the results a little hit and miss.  The main problem was with the vertical shots, neither of them turned out with the subject lost in the background.  With the next roll I think i’ll need to stand much closer to the subject so it works in the whole frame, I’m thinking this sort of shot will work well in the City.

Otherwise I can’t wait to get back out with the camera and shooting some more film, I’ve already got so many shot ideas in my head.  Can’t wait to take the camera to New York next year and I might even take it to the Olympics in the summer.
