Eggzakly takes the LC-A to the Roskilde Festival this year!
eggzakly happens to live in Roskilde, Denmark, home to one of the world’s largest music festivals around! With hundreds of bands from all parts of the world and thousands of fans doing everything that they can in order not to miss any of the action Simone though this would be an ideal place to throw in a LC-A birthday party!!
We instantly agreed to her proposal and we are happy to announce that she is the second confirmed party host. (The first party will be taking place in the Philippines, read about it here":http://lomography.com/magazine/events/2009/04/30/party-with-the-lc-a)
This is her proposal:
Camp Lomography would be open to any Lomographer visiting the Roskilde festival and wanting to camp with other Lomographers. Basically, we’d meet up on Sunday (June 28th), pitch our tents together and hoist an LC-A flag to mark the camp. Generally, the camping grounds fill up pretty fast, so most likely only people arriving on Sunday will be able to camp together. But the camp would still act as a base for all Lomographers, who want to hang out and meet other Lomographers throughout the festival.
The best time to hold the actual birthday party would probably be Wednesday (July 1st) at around 4pm. This being the day before the music starts, most people will have arrived, and it won’t clash with other major events. It would be open to anyone, with cake and whatever party favors LSI would end up providing to the people who show up first :)
This article is a tribute to the great Italian photographer Ferdinando Scianna, a member of the Magnum Photo Agency, and to his book, "Religious Festival in Sicily," which won the 1966 Nadar Prize. In this article I'll show you a series of photos taken at a religious festival in a small village in the north of Italy, organized by a group of immigrants from the southern region of the country. Take a look!
For Crow, his LC-Wide, which he fondly calls Elsie, is the perfect camera for his "Don't think, just shoot" attitude. He takes it wherever he goes and even uses the camera to teach his daughter about photography. In this interview, he shares more about his love for the LC-Wide plus some of the photographs taken by his young apprentice.
In December last year James Wright, editor and creative director of So It Goes Magazine, went on a two-week trip to Sri Lanka, "a place so long on our bucket list, but up until then, as yet unvisited," he writes on the first of his three-part photo diary. Herein is the second part of his series that chronicles his adventures, highlighted by a selection of breathtaking images of the Sri Lankan countryside and the locals, among many other images, captured with his trusty photographic companions: the Leica MP, Lomo LC-A+, and an assortment of films including the LomoChrome Purple.
One of the things that make a trip to a far-flung place truly memorable is getting the chance to interact with the locals and share fun moments with them. Five years ago, disdis was able to do exactly that on a trip to Zinguinchor, Senegal, and it goes without saying that it was most certainly one for the books.
You want your subject be the center of attention? Petzval lens photos are recognizable for sharpness and crispness in the centre, strong color saturation, wonderful swirly bokeh effect, artful vignettes and narrow depth of field that will make your subjects stand out!
Reminiscent of traveling photographers of the 19th century, Giles Clement tours through the country with his assistant, Zeiss (an Irish Terrier), offering everything from portrait sessions to wildly creative photographic projects for magazines and companies. And although his mode of transportation may have evolved with the times, his photographic method and gear have changed very little compared to the photographers of days past. Now, with over 3 years of tintyping experience under his belt and an impressive list of clients, he's carved a name out for himself as an accomplished tintyper and continues to spread his passion for this ages-old technique everywhere he goes.
This year marks the 70th anniversary of the publication of one of the most influential photography books ever, "Ballet" by the photographer, art director, and graphic designer Alexey Brodovitch. Brodovitch took a series of photos of classical dance in a very unconventional way, using very slow exposure times, trying to catch the true essence of Russian ballets. For this article, I took a series of photos at the Swing Crash Festival in my city, Como, held in June 2015.
We’ve got some fantastic news for you — you’re not too late to join the party! Celebrate the Lomo LC-A’s 31 iconic years in the analog world with a festive discount on the Lomo LC-A+ and Lomo LC-Wide cameras!
