Tungsten film is designed to make the yellow light from a typical light bulb look white. Therefore, it has a strong blue cast (thereby cancelling out the yellow). Fashion photos know that shooting Tungsten film during the daylight will give a moody and awesome blue tone to your whole image. And using a yellow flash will create a natural-white subject in this bizarre bluesy world. It's AMAZING!

Ella Lama is a letterer and illustrator based in Manila, Philippines. Her work is a perfect mix of good cheer and unfeigned creativity. Recently, she designed a Lomo'Instant White camera with cute and playful illustrations inspired by her Japan trip.
Aside from photography, newcomer Dmitri Berenger enjoys a multitude of hobbies including gardening, watching movies, and discovering music. In this interview, he talks about his photographic style, his inspirations, choosing film cameras over digital gear, and many more.

She has photographed artists such as Deerhunter, PJ Harvey and recently took a series of sun drenched beach shots which adorned The Charlatans' last album cover titled "Modern Nature."
