- a camera with a ‘bulb mode" (I used my La Sardina and my Diana F+ with an instant back)
- a flash (I used the Diana F+ Flash)
- a Buddy
- a tripod
- a really dark spot ( I couldn’t find a really dark one, so semi-dark would work too)
- a cable release makes things a little easier

2. Sneak your way into the frame and use your flash to fire light at yourself. Try firing from different angles to get freaky results. These are some of mine:
You may not get exactly the same-looking pictures, but guaranteed they would be freaky and spooky in their own unique way!
Great trick to use with Halloween is just a teensy bit away. Get flashing!

The new year is still young, but it seems as if it'll be over quickly. My organizer is already filled with entries until June. 2015 will probably be worse than 2014 when it comes to having time off so I could take some analogue shots. Anyway, there are some photography-related things that I really want to get done. It is probably best to set some goals if I only have very limited time.

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!
