Back in 1958 Yashica produced what was then the one and only dual format TLR, the Yashica-635, capable of taking both 120 and 35mm. When I saw this camera it was most definitely love at first sight! “I must have this camera!” I exclaimed, I scanned the internet for a complete one since a lot of them unfortunately seemed to be missing the 35mm kit and fount this one with an original case and kit.
Dark red, opaque filters do the business with this extended sensitivity infrared film. Wild white plants and people will seep out of your shots in semi-3D. Experiment with the ‘special aura’ effects you get through overexposing the film. 820nm sensitivity.
After shooting my first 3 rolls of redscale, it seem to have been quite successful. In my most popular photos, often the redscales, one of them won the competition for the Primavera Sound. I liked the results each time the best. So I want to tell you my impressions and experiences with this film, hits and errors, successes and failures, good photos and bad photos. All gentlemen ... go ahead and see.
Refreshing, a little bit bitter, and packing a whole lot of flavor, beer is definitely a welcome companion in the lulls between (or while!) shooting Lomography. les_parisiens takes their pick of the best beer shot in this Community Rumble!
Have you ever had a film already exposed, even before you have loaded it into your camera? If not, you absolutely have to try this once, the effects are unique and very unpredictable.
What to do with those film leads or film strips from rolls that didn't turn out well (aka screwed up)? Grab some short strips of film and place them in all sorts of places. Take photos of them ... bearing in mind that this will be the first exposure. I used an old SLR and set the exposure compensation to -1.
With a little bit of creativity, you can Split to your heart's content at a small cost!

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.
All of us know what kind of slide films exist out there in the world. I think we all know the Lomography Xpro Slide 200 too. This is a little review on this film when it's not crossed.

So I have been missing from the Lomography world for a while now. I am unsure what happened but something inside me broke, something went, something unseen, unheard and unknown silently left and analogue photography, film, cameras and Lomo was nothing more than a void.
