Reykjavik 101.40 (and around...) Iceland

7

I'm a new lomographic photographer, discovering the Diana with fun and lot of pleasure!!! i brought my camera to Iceland, taking pictures with no idea if some would work or not... (well, everybody knows that the Diana is a bit capricious... definitely fun, but capricious...). i enjoyed moving in reykjavik and around trying to remember what i shot, switching from a digital photographer mind to a new one, loading films and taking them off with the feeling that something good was going on... this was my first rolls with a plastic camera...

I bought a diana with the idea that it would be THE camera to render the lights and colored fields of this country, and honestly, I’m astonished.. from Bogarnes to Grindavik, up to Thingvellir and Geysir, walking from Gadarstraeti to Laugavegur and around, meeting people and taking pictures everywhere, this was more than a trip,this was just like one of my best travel (and believe me, I’ve been walking in some places in my life !!) and I’m really happy that all of this pictures will stay as a souvenir of this moment…

    At the Funfair with my Horizon Perfekt

    Every year my city Como hosts, for the Easter period, a great fun fair. This is a great occasion to test a camera, to make experiments with films, to have fun and to photograph people while also having fun! This year, I used my gem, the wonderful Horizon Perfekt (that I bought from the Lomography Online Shop) loaded with a timeless film, a Kodak Tri-X 400 developed, as usually for b/w, by myself.

    A Day with the LC-A: From the Bus, Como (My Tribute to Robert Frank)

    In 1958 the great photographer Robert Frank took a series of images of New York's street life with a Leica camera from a bus window, as in these series of photos that I took in my city Como with my trusty Lomo LC-A loaded with a Kodak Tri-X film. This is a tribute to a great camera and to a great photographer! Read more after the jump!

    Fresh from the Lab: 1990

    A weekend without a lomowalk seems bad, at least for me. One Saturday morning, I decided to join my friends in their lomowalk. It was all cloudy at first but it didn't stop me from going out and walking. I brought my new Nikon FM2 and some expired rolls, just to test my camera. Was it just me being sleepy, or was my Nikon FM2 acting up? My photos turned out grainy, pale, and, in my opinion, looking so 1990s?

    A Salute to the Masters: Sports Through A Plastic Lens (A Tribute to David Burnett)

    The great American photographer David Burnett is famous for his unusual photos of sports competitions. He uses a tilt-shift lens to create miniature fakes, or a simple Holga camera to shoot in black and white. To write this tribute, I used my Holga to take some pictures of amateur sport activities around my city. Take a look after the jump.

    A Salute to the Masters: A Caprice Without Tears  (A Tribute to Henry Grant)

    This is a tribute to Henry Grant (1907–2004), a British freelance photographer, ten years after his death. He was mostly active around London between the end of World War II and the 1970s. For a tribute to him, I chose one of his preferred subjects: the carousels at fun fairs. Take a look after the jump!
