Since I started pin-holing the world, I have had the strong desire to make a special camera, with the purpose of shooting just one photograph. The purpose was to sacrifice the camera in the process of photo creation – I wanted the camera to become the photograph. To let you understand, the process from the camera to the photograph is the same that ties the baby bird to the egg: the bird grows protected from the shell and when it's ready breaks it and comes out. This is why I decided to create the Pinhegg – An Egg Pinhole Camera.
Millions of Lomographs have been uploaded over the year but only a handful will stick into our minds.
A field test to compare digital and analog photography.
When I was travelling, I tried to compare the photos taken by a digital camera and an original film camera, specifically an LC-A+. Why don't we play a little game by guessing which photos were taken by which camera? It's a face-off between the old and new!
In the past 4 years that I have been using Lomography cameras, I have used a number of cameras and films and tried to experiment with my techniques. Here is part 2 in my list of 20 Lomo milestones.
A lens: smaller than a film canister. A shutter button: the size of an M&M. A body: it can be compared to a really fat goldfish. Despite the bad comparisons, you get the idea: the Lomography Fisheye Baby 110 is super small! But don't let it's size fool you! This little guppy makes it's way through a large ocean with amazing color and effects in the photos it produces.
One body, two lenses never looking at the same direction. A camera designed by me to have more fun with mixed doubles.
I love my Lomography cameras and I love celebrating, so here is a list of my top 20 Lomography milestones in two parts.
