But my absolute favorite place in the whole world will be the Vondelpark. It’s a park in the south of Amsterdam and It’s a place where I go when I want to get my mind clear or go into a state of happiness and tranquility. Sounds hippy like but it’s true. When I’m in the park I get relaxed instantly. You meet a lot of people, see beautiful people and chat with beautiful people here. But there is a flip side to all this beauty.
The Vondelpark doesn’t have any toilets. So you have to do it in the bushes. But watch out which bush you’re taking cause I had a nasty freak wanking his doodle standing right next to me the last time I went! But the nice thing about a day in the Vondelpark is that you can have a conversation with someone for hours, and you don’t even know their name. And when you say or kiss good bye, you still don’t know. Being anonymous for a short moment in time. It’s a gift only the Vondelpark and Amsterdam can give you when you want to escape reality for a while.
During the summer there are loads of things to do in the park. There is an open air theater which has a program every day from the 3rd of June till the 26th of August. The park even has its own parrots which escaped from a zoo and colonized in the Vondelpark. But the park is so big that you can spend a whole day wondering around and discovering all the beautiful people and details it has to offer.
The 2015 UEFA Champions League Final will be held at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin on June 6. It is a place full of history and is also the only football stadium with a blue track course. Some say it is the most beautiful stadium in the world, and I totally agree with them. But then agai,n I might be biased because it is the home court of my favorite team, Hertha BSC Berlin—my blue-white bloodline.
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.
With a Lomo'Instant Camera and a Splitzer, you can get absolutely funny and creative images. I took it to the highest level and exposed my shots from 4 to 8 times! What you'll see next is an impressive mix of colors, textures, places and people captured in a very surreal way!
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.
I visited Tibet in early June 2009. It was a group trip with three other friends including fellow lomographer, @venusattack. Tibet to me is a mysterious and untainted place. We wanted to go on a trip there because of its breathtaking mountainous scenery and monasteries.
You want your subject be the center of attention? Petzval lens photos are recognizable for sharpness and crispness in the centre, strong color saturation, wonderful swirly bokeh effect, artful vignettes and narrow depth of field that will make your subjects stand out!
Perhaps you’ve already had chance to try light painting, multiple exposures and long exposures with your Lomo’Instant, but what can you experiment with next? Well, that’s exactly the thought I had which led to giving this Tipster a go. I wanted to shoot Lomo’Instant photos which felt a bit “messier” than what I’m usually used to and to use a technique which would open up new possibilities with the kinds of images I could create with my favorite instant camera. Well, here I go!
Using my Canon EOS 20D, I already discovered the amazing bokeh effect of the Petzval Lens. So I was really excited to try it with my favorite digital hybrid camera, Olympus OM-D E-M5. Just attach an adaptor and off you go!
