What Is Film?

1

A lovely bunch of Lomographers met in Milan’s Lomography Gallery Store to discover and master the secrets of all sorts of films: from color to black and white, infrareds and slides along with all possible and imaginable film processing.

But it wasn’t all talk and soon after an intense theoretical introduction we grabbed our cameras, picked our films and went on a mission in hunting for art at the gardens of the Triennale museum.

Armed with Dianas, Fisheyes, La Sardinas and LC-A+s, we snapped as much as we could out at this magical place where relaxation meets. The search of art and spectacular images for printing on our crazy films!

And here are the results:

    :-( sad: I live 1 hr away from Milan and didn't know about this event, otherwise I would have tried to sneak in! Well, looks like you folks had fun anyway, so keep up the good work and have many a good shots in the oft-underrated city of Milan (which has some very nice corners indeed)

    While it might sound unusual for some right off the bat, black and white film photographers do use color filters to experiment with their shots without ever needing to do some post-processing. How to do that and which filters to use to capture specific scenes? Take a look at this short instructional YouTube video clip by LZ Film Productions!

    Nothing Happens on Color Film: Street Life in Como As Seen From the Bus

    Some weeks ago, I made a tribute to the great photographer Robert Frank and his 1958 black and white series taken in New York from a bus window. He is the master of the ordinary moments, capturing the essence of daily life in a series of free and random sequence of photos where nothing important happens! And as I've written there I wanted to take a similar experiment with color film, which would change the perception of the environment where people live. Read more after the jump!

    Shooting with the LC-A 120 in the UK

    Lomography UK was lucky enough to test an LC-A 120 prototype in store and it was glorious! We used colour and black and white film to capture the camera at its finest. It was everything you would expect from the LC-A but in full frame 38mm f/4.5 120 film. It's LOVE.
