To be honest, I don't know when I took these photos using this mysterious film from Czech. I put this film into the Canon AE-1 and start shooting on the street. One word for this film: Fantastic!
I bought this film from the Lomography Online shop and it was a foolish decision when I bought just one roll. Oh well, that’s all in the past. What I’m trying to say is this Fomapan black and white film is a mysterious film that gives you deep black. Yes, deep black with a little bit of grain here and there; but who hates grains? I love them!
See that deep black? Yes! that’s fantastic! That’s what Fomapan gives you! Oh my! Oh my! I don’t know if the lab processed this film badly or I exposed the film underexposed but let’s skip that part and think that Fomapan is a really good film for outdoor or even maybe indoor. Let’s see!
It’s good for indoor photos too!
The images are a bit of grey, but you can see that deep shade of black! Oh it’s really fantastic! You all should really try it! I have one advice and one rule. First, is the advice: Use it for street photography. Trust me! it suites really well with any kind of SLRs or compact cameras.
…and the rule: Watch out for that deep black images! They’re really good!
Some of the photos I took during my trips to Penang and Singapore may pass as street photography, but to be honest, they were more like my feeble attempts to capture 'decisive moments' that I don't usually find at home.
Matthieu Soudet is a child of photography. He started shooting in his native Normandy when he was only nine years old. Since then, he has dedicated his life to capturing magical moments and puts his boundless creativity to good use through beautiful pictures and portraits. He tested the New Petzval Art Lens tells us about his experience in this exclusive interview.
The French photographer Bruno Barbey took a series of photos in Southern Italy in the '60s, many of these in the city of Naples. In this tribute to a great master of social and street photography, I'll show you a series of photos that I took in the islands of Ischia and Procida located a few kilometers from this wonderful city.

We often use black and white film when shooting dramatic portraits, sweeping landscapes, and even in street photography. But did you know that it's just as effective in taking creative doubles, too? Take a look at this selection of lovely lomographs taken by some members of our community!
I got my first Lomography camera, an Actionsampler, during a raffle in one of the photowalks I attended. I was just starting to explore film photography then and having this plastic fantastic camera definitely gave me the perfect overview of what lies ahead the analogue road.
Redscaling a film is one of the oldest tricks in Lomography's book. But, seeing its ability to magically transform an ordinary street scene, like this, into a dramatic clash of warm tones still puts us in awe. Congratulations gotoarizona for having our Photo of the Day!
I love the different styles of cameras that Lomography has, but I also like to create my own cardboard cameras that use pinholes to be able to take pictures using traditional film. This time I created the Pinhole F, a camera inspired by the Diana F+ and shoots 12 pinhole photos using 120 film.
This is my experience with the Lomography Redscale XR 50-200 (120), my first medium format film. It's an adventure that started when I got a Lubitel 2, to finally shoot with it. In this article, you'll find detailed information about color schemes, the advantages of shooting in medium format, and the differences between standard redscale films. Here are the results of a day of shooting outside, which I recently got back from the lab.
About two years ago or so, I purchased the Lomography Redscale XR 50-200. I saved just one roll of this film and waited for the right moment to shoot with it. In April this year, I just wasn't able to take it anymore! I loaded this film into my Lubitel 166+, which I realized I hadn't used for maybe about six months. One idea came to mind: taking crazy multiple exposures!
This article is a tribute to the photojournalist Bernard Cahier, the greatest Formula 1 photographer known as the "Cartier-Bresson of Motor Racing" for his great ability in capturing the right moment. Here, I'll feature a series of photos that I took at the Monza Grand Prix with a timeless black and white film! Take a look after the jump!
In 1958 the great photographer Robert Frank took a series of images of New York's street life with a Leica camera from a bus window, as in these series of photos that I took in my city Como with my trusty Lomo LC-A loaded with a Kodak Tri-X film. This is a tribute to a great camera and to a great photographer! Read more after the jump!
