When I got my Horizon Perfekt I just wanted to go outside and take pictures right away.
It was not the sunniest day outside, but the Horizon Perfekt offers a lot of different aperture settings, so this wasn’t a problem at all. It’s an all-manual camera, so you set the aperture and shutter speed yourself. This makes it easy to shoot in almost every light situation even with ISO 100 film.
The Horizon Perfekt has a glass lens, which swings around when you press the shutter release. It captures a 120-degree view photo on any 35mm film. I took the slide film Agfa Ct Precisa for my first try with the Horizon Perfekt.
You can choose an aperture from f 2.8 up to f 16; for most of my Horizon shots with the Precisa, I used an aperture between f2.8 to f5.6 since it wasn’t so sunny outside and I think it turned out quite well. The shutter speeds are 1/2s, 1/4s, 1/8s, 1/60s, 1/125s, 1/250s, 1/500s. For night shots, ½ s can be used, but you should use a tripod to make sure the pictures don’t become blurry.
The green tone that comes out when you cross the Agfa CT Precisa 100 goes perfectly along with the 120 degree shots. So you should try this film with your Horizon Perfekt!
The AgfaPhoto CT Precisa captures your memories with exceptional colour rendition and is ideal for sunny outdoor adventures. When cross-processed, you will see an overall colour-shift as cool blue tones envelop your images. See the whole range of colour slides in our Shop.
I don't care if this film has been reviewed a zillion times, that it has already been discontinued, or that there might be a Japanese version of it. The Agfa CT Precisa that I know gives me the blues. Oh, yes - not a Chelsea FC fan, but this film is all about the color blue. Say hello to the blues!
I got asked to take some photos during our last meeting outside the office, so I didn't doubt for a second, loaded my camera with a fast film, and had a great time. Want to know more? Check it out after the jump.
This film has fine grain, especially when cross-processed in C41. And if you use a Lomo camera, maybe the LC-A or the LC-Wide, the results will be more interesting with strong vignettes in your pictures!
Sometimes when taking pictures I get addressed by strangers either because of my cameras or because they don't want me to shoot something they claim they have responsibility for. But having the police on my back was a new experience.
We did it, Chicago! We got through the hardest winter ever! Let's celebrate by getting outside, taking pictures, and learning new techniques. The month of June is going to be an exciting month of workshops

Every year my city Como hosts, for the Easter period, a great fun fair. This is a great occasion to test a camera, to make experiments with films, to have fun and to photograph people while also having fun! This year, I used my gem, the wonderful Horizon Perfekt (that I bought from the Lomography Online Shop) loaded with a timeless film, a Kodak Tri-X 400 developed, as usually for b/w, by myself.

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.
When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand, located at the Danish west coast, with my brothers and parents. I stopped going there as I grew up. In 2012 however, we hit the road again. It was my first return visit in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In part two of my journey log, I'm going to show you the pictures I took with my Lomography cameras.
If you want to spend a weekend near the sea but do not want to restrict yourself to the usual routine consisting of the hotel and the beach, I recommend taking a trip to Cesena and Cesenatico, two towns located on the Adriatic coast of central Italy. I did mine by combining sunbathing and cultural excursions.This was documented with my trusty Lomo LC-A. Have a look!
The great American photographer David Burnett is famous for his unusual photos of sports competitions. He uses a tilt-shift lens to create miniature fakes, or a simple Holga camera to shoot in black and white. To write this tribute, I used my Holga to take some pictures of amateur sport activities around my city. Take a look after the jump.
