Add some "techno" to your shots with this doubles technique!
Use the macro function of the Tunnel Vision lens to take detail pictures of thing on your LCD monitor or laptop screen. You need to hold the lens 25mm to 30mm away from the screen in order to get the gridded texture. Try holding the camera at an angle to the screen for some ‘blurry-sharp-blurry again’ action.
Shoot a whole roll with different colors on the screen, try it with menus and icons… anything and everything really. Don’t worry about camera shake – LCD screens are bright enough for the LC-A+ to use quick shutter speeds.
When you’ve filled the whole roll, rewind it then go out and shoot anything you like – try your favorite locations and usual haunts.
Your shots will then be suffused with a colored pixelated effect or overlaid with ghostly bitmapped images. Cool.
Double exposures are made for some serious analogue experiments. Put your cameras to double exposure hyperdrive with these out-of-this-world double exposures from the community shot with the Lomo Lubitel!
This month, I'll be teaching you how to use different techniques to add effects to your photos. BE patient enough and follow these quick tips to find out how I manipulated my film to achieve reddish tones in my photos.
Shake well and apply to fabric. Blot out excess using a paper towel. Create your design using Inkofilm or anything that casts a shadow. Expose to sunlight or bright UV light for 10-20 minutes or until color reaches full saturation. Machine wash using Inkowash to remove unexposed dye. Double your exposure time in overcast weather. Enjoy the "wow" result!
Photos shot with a New Petzval lens are immediately recognizable for their super-sharp focus areas and wonderful swirly bokeh effect. Each New Petzval lens is crafted from brass (just like the original Petzval lens) and features premium glass optics. Together with Lomography, the lenses have been designed and constructed by a team of optics specialists at the Zenit factory in Russia. Zenit are master lens manufacturers and have the skill to build the Petzval lens for use with today’s SLR cameras.
My list of resolutions for 2015 consists of 12 projects, one for every month. In January, I tried some camera add-ons. If you want to add a bit of extra bling to your pictures, you can put something either in front of or behind your lens. In this case, I did both.
Stenoflex lets you reproduce the single steps of black and white photography, from taking photos to printing. It is a simple box pierced with a tiny pinhole to allow light to enter. Put a sheet of photosensitive paper (included) inside the darkroom and expose it to your subject.
In the wake of the news that Microsoft no longer supports the Windows XP operating system, people have started to look back at the serene photograph that became iconic for adorning computer screens around the world. However, perhaps, not many know that this famous photograph was shot on film and not digitally manipulated in any way.
Apologies for making you go through my "weekend with my BFFs" shots, but I do want to share with you some easy tips and ideas to shoot your Lomo'Instant in the daylight and outdoor. This is especially aimed at people who don't read manuals.
