    Disdis: The story of Leo

    As part of our Russia Day competition, we asked the Lomography community to try for a baby on June 12th. Diego (or Disdis as he's known in the community) was a bit early for the Rumble; his baby boy Leo was born in August last year. But we felt compelled to show his story and amazing selection of photos with you guys - Read on for his lovely tale of Leo's birth and development....

    Before, I tag this album with Lomography X Tungsten film. As I tidying my films and boxed them properly last weekend, I found out this film labelled Fuji RVP 100. So this is actually from a Fuji Velvia 100F. I sincerely apologise. It was an honest mistake. Thank you for those who like this picture.. Many of you are my idol. Thank you.

    Bali Trip Aka Our Honeymoon

    This is our scorching summer film-tastic fun-ventures at the seaside last April (12 to 18). We just got married earlier this year - February 5th to be precise. We even had a lomo-style wedding reception and we really like it (later i'll post about this).

    Analogue for a Day: Photo shoot at the Park

    For my first "Analogue For A Day," I decided it would be appropriate to try out a photo shoot with my friend Erika, strictly with film. I had done some digital photo shoots in the past, sometimes bringing along a film camera or two, but never before did I give my full trust to film...until now. Read on!

  • Y is for 'Your way'

    shared by buckshot on 2012-06-04

    Because Lomographers are rebels who respect no rules and never compromise their individuality for anything or anyone. They look authorities and established conventions straight in the eye and say, "You know where you can stick your conformity, buster - I'm doing this *my* way!"

  • Z is for 'Zen'

    shared by buckshot on 2012-06-04

    Because you need to have the patience of a Zen Master to wait... for the right moment to take your shot... for the right light... for the right weather conditions... to save enough money for a new camera or more film... for your films to come back from the lab... to upload and tag all your shots... for those first precious likes(!)... But it's all oh so worth it when you get the perfect result in the end. And this, my friends, is where my little A-Z of Lomography ends too. Hope you liked it, and thanks very much for your visit! :-)

  • W is for 'Winning...!'

    shared by buckshot on 2012-06-03

    ... and for the tremendous sense of satisfaction you get from winning a prize in one of the fantastic Lomography competitions, like I did for this shot! (See Tori Amos competition results here: http://www.lomography.com/magazine/competitions/2011/09/30/lomography-proudly-presents-the-tori-amos-inspiration-competition-winners-announcement ) Thanks again, Tori and LSI :-)

  • V is for 'Vignettage'

    shared by buckshot on 2012-06-03

    Those dark corners - produced by the barrel of the lens intruding into the frame's view - serve to concentrate the eye on the centre of the image. This effect, known as 'vignettage', is one of the signature looks of Lomography. I find it's easiest to achieve on a Diana F+ with the standard 55mm lens.

  • S is for 'Sprockets'

    shared by buckshot on 2012-06-03

    Film is so precious to Lomographers that we use every available millimetre of it - including the sprockets!

  • T is for 'Toy cameras'

    shared by buckshot on 2012-06-09

    Some call them toy cameras, some call them "plastic fantastic", some call them cheap pieces of useless crap... I call them Lomo Lovemachines! And, boy, if these are toys, I wanna stay a kid forever! ;-)

  • P is for 'Piggies!'

    shared by buckshot on 2012-06-01

    No, not the piggies that you win to get discounts on piggylicious Lomography products, unfortunately... but they're cool too, of course! The particular piggy in this shot is one that was flown over a disused power station in London in 2011 as part of a recreation of the cover-shot of Pink Floyd's epic album 'Animals', covered in more detail in my own album here: http://www.lomography.com/homes/buckshot/albums/1761052-cloudy-with-a-chance-of-pork-chops

  • O is for 'Obsession'

    shared by buckshot on 2012-06-09

    Because, sooner or later, every Lomographer becomes obsessed with collecting cameras and accessories, buying new films to try out, experimenting with funky new techniques, talking about photography with friends, checking the Lomography website 20 times a day... and taking countless photographs, of course!

  • N is for 'NOT DIGITAL!!!'

    shared by buckshot on 2012-06-09

    Otherwise it just ain't Lomography, no siree no! This shot, by the way, is of my very first Lomo lovemachine: the Diana F+ 'El Toro' edition. Ain't she a beauty...?

  • M is for 'Monochrome'

    shared by buckshot on 2012-05-31

    That's the fancy word for black & white, in case ya didn't know ;-) Monochrome photography was good enough for Ansel Adams, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Eugène Atget, Robert Doisneau, Robert Capa and Eugene Smith, among other greats, and it's sure as hell good enough for me!

  • L is for 'Light leaks'

    shared by buckshot on 2012-05-31

    Because Лomo Лikes it Лeaky ;-)

  • J is for 'Junk food'

    shared by buckshot on 2012-06-01

    Because Lomographers are too busy hunting the next epic shot to have time for gourmet self-indulgences, damn it! Just fuel us enough on fast food to get us back out on the road with another roll of film, baby. We may live like paupers, but our dreams are the dreams of Kings!

  • I is for 'Individuality'

    shared by buckshot on 2012-06-09

    I take a photo of a bicycle, you take a photo of a bicycle, he takes a photo of a bicycle, she takes a photo of a bicycle... but every shot will be different, determined by each Lomographer's choice of bicycle, choice of background, choice of composition, framing, angle, exposure, timing, camera, lens, film, processing... the possibilities are almost endless, with each choice being influenced by the individuality of each Lomographer. And that's what makes every Lomograph special and unique. Yes, we are all individuals! ;-)

  • F is for 'Fantasy'

    shared by buckshot on 2012-06-04

    Lomographers don't look at the world the same way 'normal' people do... their eyes are always on the lookout for an unusual subject, a pleasing composition, a different angle, an interesting juxtaposition of shapes, a harmony of patterns, a balance of light and shade, an uncommon combination of colours, strong textures and subtle nuances of all these elements in just the right proportion to create something new, something exciting, something dramatic, something poetic, something dreamy... anything that captures their fantasy.

  • E is for 'E6 processing'

    shared by buckshot on 2012-06-01

    Because that's how the good folks at Fuji and Kodak *intended* you to process their precious and oh-so-beautiful slide films, boys and girls!

    3
  • B is for 'Boats'

    shared by buckshot on 2012-05-31

    Because my personal golden rule of Lomography is, 'Whatever floats your boat!'

    5
  • D is for 'Doubles'

    shared by buckshot on 2012-06-01

    Double exposures are great fun — and they give you twice the value of your film-frame too! Not something to be dismissed lightly in these troubled economic times ;-) Then there's 'doubling' with a friend too, of course, when you get to reshoot a roll of film that's already been shot by a fellow Lomographer. I haven't actually done this myself yet, but, hey, I'm open to any offers, amigos...! ;-)

  • A is for 'Apple'

    shared by buckshot on 2012-06-09

    Welcome to my little A-Z of Lomography! It begins with 'A is for Apple' because that's the tradition (at least in English), and some traditions you just don't mess with, my friend! But you're allowed... no, expected!... to give them a little Lomographic twist, of course ;-)

    UK CitySlicker Hazelbeeves: I See Your Film Box, and I Raise You a Pack of Cards!

    In this Tipster article, I’m going to show you how to make a super-wicked-awesome deck of playing cards with the help of a Diana Mini, some Lomography 35mm ISO 800 Color Negative film, and props that were lying around the house. At the time of writing I happened to have a lot of sweets, but you could use whatever you wanted. Anything goes, but the shiner the better!
