Skat (Skatrunde) - Photo by German photographer Umbo, (Otto Umbehr) (1902-1980). Umbo is considered one of the most important
Bauhaus photographers. The picture was taken in the end of 1935, when he was
commissioned by the Berlin AEG to test a new ‘Himmelskamera’
(meteorological camera). This special camera was equipped with a
fish-eye lens, generating pictures with 180-degrees-views.
Did a photowalk with Brian Brooks and Glass Key Photo in San Francisco yesterday. Did some shooting with my Fish Eye that Option8 had created. I never really had a chance to shoot with it until now, but it’s a pretty fun camera.
