Lomo Ammunition Bag

13

I really love Lomography bags and other analogue fashion offered at the Lomoshop section and for a long time I'm dreaming of getting one of those super beautiful kickside bags. I confess I'm mad about those bags, but they cost a lot and saving money takes a lot of time, so what I have done? Read on to know about it!

I was searching for something in my garage when I found one interesting thing: an old Russian magnifier with a case which looks like a port. In an instant, one crazy thought struck my mind “hey I could use this port to make a bag – Lomo ammunition bag!”. After couple of minutes I made a plan on how can I transform this into a fashionable DIY Lomo bag and now I will show you how it is done!

To realize this plan we will need the following:

  • Magnifier case (but here fits any old port)
  • A lot of sponge and foam
  • Big pack of glue
  • sharp blade, pencil, ruler
  • and a lot of imagination :)

First thing, what I did was to clean outside and inside of the port and I must say it was a really dirty job. When the port is clean enough, we are ready for a second step.

Take a sponge (foam) and using glue stick separate pieces of it to fill up inside of a port. If you would use one big piece of sponge this would make your job much easier. After sticking the sponge with glue, leave the invention to desiccate for a while. Next up is to have the ruler, pencil and some imagination with you.

I thought about a lot of combinations on how should I put my Lomographic stuff in this bag and after some time I made my choice. I draw those figures/pattern with a pencil and cut them out with a sharp blade. Now if you look a bit closer, you could see that this combination is very universal. Almost all Lomographic cameras will fit in my bag.

Just have a look at those pictures, My Lomo ammunition bag is ready to use! Some of you might say it’s quite big and uncomfortable and it might bother you when you’re just going to take a walk in a park but if your planning for a weekend trip with a car and you want to take more than one camera with you and a backpack is not an option, then this bag would be really helpful!

    Pushing Boundaries: So I Heard You Like Multiple Exposures

    My name is Amber Valentine and I have a confession to make: I’m not really a photographer. I have a website full of photographs, a bookshelf full of cameras, film waiting to be developed, and a wall full of framed pictures I’ve taken. Even so, I don’t really consider myself a photographer per se. I think that Lomography is more about the experimentation and the fun of film than it is about the photography, and that experimentation is part of the reason I have embraced Lomography so.

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Amazon

    It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.
