If you are a crazy photographer and you keep your unexposed and used films together, and also have multiple cameras loaded at the same time, having a bit of discipline and organization can be a great idea.
I always carry several new rolls in my camera bag in order to always have available films. I carry them out of the little pot to have more space. So, to avoid unwanted advances, I bend the very end of the film and roll it back to hook into the roll and sta tight. This also helps the differentiation of new and used films.
Another idea is write the main subject down on the film as soon you unload your camera. You can make it with a pen for CDs. You can write if it is for x-pro, if you shoot it with a different ISO or even if it is redscale. If you want more organization, put its end date for helping yourself on the order of processing — It’ll be very helpful if you have the same habit that I have of having too many cameras loaded with films at the same time.
And how do you organize several cameras loaded with different films? I have the habit of always having 3 or 4 cameras with films inside, so it takes time to finish 1 roll. It’s simple: Put masking tapes on the back of your cameras and write the film names there. This way you’ll always know what is inside of each camera.
If you organize well, you’ll go far in the world of analogue photography!
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. Read more after the jump!
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!

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.
Perhaps you’ve already had chance to try light painting, multiple exposures and long exposures with your Lomo’Instant, but what can you experiment with next? Well, that’s exactly the thought I had which led to giving this Tipster a go. I wanted to shoot Lomo’Instant photos which felt a bit “messier” than what I’m usually used to and to use a technique which would open up new possibilities with the kinds of images I could create with my favorite instant camera. Well, here I go!
If you're lacking in inspiration and are tired of the same journey into work each day fear not! With this simple filter technique you can inject a whole new burst of colour into your photographs. Read on for more information.
