In some cases, we can't decide what image to capture. In my case, I can't choose between the sea and the mountains. If you are undecided like me and still don't know what you like better, this tipster is for you!
Often, when we walk through our favorite landscapes, we think that we’re taking photographs of the same stuff and the photographs will come out equal. To prevent thinking like this, there’s no better solution than ti accumulate pictures from vegetation and trees in the same reel and shooting again using the same reel in another scene, this time the chosen area was the sea.
The process is quite easy, in this case I used a c41 color reel, 200 asa and was converted in a redscale. The process, as many of you know, just consists of turning the reel and exposing the other part from this. Once the reel was prepared, the process consisted on taking photographs of the mountain, in this case at the Montseny — pictures of trees, leaves, vegatation and plants. When it was completed, the pictures revealed the beauty of the subjects.
I still don’t know if I like the sea or the mountain more. Which one do you like more?
I’d only heard rumors of the Magic Tree. I had no idea if they were true and, honestly, I’m still half disbelieving of it despite the story I’m about to tell you. If you have faith in what I say, I’m grateful. If you don’t, I bear no ill will towards you. But either way, please shout out in the comments what secrets or sophistries you think I found through its twisting branches.
If you love summer, the beach and your LC-A like I do, you MUST have a Krab Underwater Housing! Don't worry if you don't exactly swim and dive like a fish... it is called Krab for a reason, it works in both land and sea!
The Algarve region in the south of Portugal attracts tourists from all over Europe all year round. But what most people (luckily) don't know is that there is still a great unexplored part of the coast in Algarve, away from the masses and the cities. Come and see the Costa Vicentina, a diamond on Portugal's southwest coast.
The Instax Neo Classic is beautiful, and the Instax Minis are simply adorable. If you haven’t caught the Instax bug however, or if you’re still torn between getting your own instant camera and sticking with your smartphone, then the Fuji Instax SP-1 Printer is best for you. The good news is that it is now available for pre-order on the Lomography online shop.
Budding photographers are everywhere, but not everyone can excel in the craft using both analogue and digital mediums. When you look at Alex Luyckx’s body of work, however, you realize that there masterfully skilled and gifted people out there who can shoot staggering regardless of what camera or what medium there is. And if that wasn't fascinating enough, this talented gentleman with an obvious devotion for film also develops and prints his own images.

While I know that many prefer their street photos in black and white, I also think it's worth snapping the streets in color once in a while. Let me share with you some of the ways I see and capture the cities I go to in glorious technicolor in this simple tipster!
Going away for the weekend is always fun, especially if, like me, you live abroad and go back to visit your home city! For my walk through Milan, I decided to bring with me the Lomo’Instant because well, I just love it! Here are my thoughts after this special weekend!
Don't let a missing shoe ruin your adventure! Enjoy the day hopping around on one leg and fill your day with a lifetime worth of memories. Better yet, capture them in glorious analogue just like what our fellow lomographer sommarboken did in our winning Photo of the Day!
For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.
Where are you headed to this summer? Where I'm from summer has ended too soon, so I'm still daydreaming of sand and seafoam. I decided to check out the archives for some cool beach-y snapshots and came across a lot of interesting underwater photos! Check out my finds after the jump; hopefully this list will inspire you to grab a Fisheye Sub or a Krab, along with your Fisheye cameras and LC-A+, for some underwater adventure.
