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…

    A Salute to the Masters: R.I.P. (A Tribute to George Krause)

    This article is dedicated to the multifaceted American photographer George Krause and to his series depicting funeral monuments realized between 1962 and 1963. I was able to know about this series thanks to an important essay on photography written by former Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) Director of Photography, John Szarkowski. For this tribute, I loaded my trusty Praktica camera with a roll of Ilford film and took a series of photos in the Monumental Cemetery in my city, Como. Take a look!

    Falling In Love With The LC-A 120

    There are quite a few perks that come with working for a film photography company, and the best perk of all is testing out the latest cameras. I can remember buying my LC-A back in 2009 and being really inspired to shoot film again. When the LC-A 120 came along, I couldn't wait to try it out around London. Join me as I test out this super medium format beauty.

    Testing a Yashica TLR Camera After 55 Years in Storage

    Though I am not a professional, photography is in my genes. My father was a photographer and technician in the Air Force and accumulated a number of cameras during his life. This is a story about one of those cameras, a Yashica 635 TLR. I brought the camera—after being in storage for about 55 years—back to life with a roll of Portra 160 during the golden hour at Bellevue Botanical Gardens in Washington.

    Object of My Affection: Subbuteo

    In my early adolescence, I liked to play table football. For my 12th birthday, my parents gifted me with a wonderful Subbuteo table soccer game set that I had wished for many months! This was my favorite toy until I discovered other interesting hobbies, like ham radio and electronics. So after some years, I gave away this game to other kids. I always remembered this game with pleasure and a hint of nostalgia.

    How (Not) to Make It in New York

    Everything I had fit into eight boxes and two suitcases. That’s all I had collected in my 22 years on earth, eight boxes and two suitcases. My friends and I moved to Brooklyn in the dead of winter, just after a huge snowstorm. I came from California and had no real experience living in snow. All of it was magical to me.
