The Shot Rider

26

Enough walking and shooting! Since we bought a new bike, we thought it will be cool if we can have 2 hobbies combined together. Let's ride and shoot!

What do you need:

  • A bike
  • Camera strap (to prevent your camera from slipping off your hand)
  • Good biking skill (with one hand, or two off the handle!)
  • Wide angle camera like LC-Wide
  • Courage!

Try to use a higher ISO film like 400 and 800. It will make sure that you capture a clear shot while you are biking fast.

These pictures were taken during sunset time around 6pm during the golden hour:

When you feel tired biking, just stop aside and start experiment with your flash and bike lights!

The Lomo LC-Wide boasts the newly-developed 17mm Minigon Ultra-Wide Angle lens. This 35mm camera wonder is the perfect companion for your photo expeditions. It produces eye-catching splashes of colour with astonishing saturation and contrasts with the added versatility of 3 different formats. Open up to a new photographic experience with the LC-Wide, available in our Shop.

    LomoAmigos Yougofirst Shoot With The LomoKino In Their New Snowboard Movie

    Are you ready for an adrenaline rush? A little while ago, we teamed up with the snowboard and film-making collective Yougofirst and gave them a LomoKino and some film rolls to play with. After a season of crazy riding, jumps and tricks, they have finished their latest movie HETEROTOPIA which features footage shot with our 35mm movie-maker. We had the chance to catch up with Vid and Matic from the collective about the new movie and their experiences shooting analogue on the slopes. It's also our pleasure to showcase the movie here!

    My Analogue Bucket List: Faster Than a Speeding Cannonball

    The new year is still young, but it seems as if it'll be over quickly. My organizer is already filled with entries until June. 2015 will probably be worse than 2014 when it comes to having time off so I could take some analogue shots. Anyway, there are some photography-related things that I really want to get done. It is probably best to set some goals if I only have very limited time.
