Quickie Tipster: Developing Photos Later is Not a Bad Thing

7

Money is tight and the purse strings mean we might have to wait a bit longer to develop our photos! So what? Makes for more of a suprise when you finally get them back!!

The world economy is difficult to say the least and its hitting the pocket hard. That means some of us lomographers might have to wait until the next payday to develop photos! I recently had to wait two months for some photos due to Christmas, but WOW I found the photos I forgot I had taken! Unlike the digital boys and girls we have the fun of wondering what we are going to get! I say dont develop the photos until you forget what you have taken!

    I have two rolls of film from 2008, I took them on a trip to the Isle of Wight when I was 12. I'm going to get them developed soon and I have COMPLETELY forgotten the photos I took.

    I completely agere as well. I usually have at least four rolls when I go to get them developed, and am usually always surprised by what's on there :) When people ask me why I bother with analogue photography instead of (only) digital, this is one of my arguments for; the surprise element! Both because you might have forgotten what you've photographed, but you may also be surprised at how a certain photo you do remember taking, turned out. With digital, you can just see it straight away, and retake the photo, but with analogue you have to wait for the exciting outcome :)

    Creativity means Connecting Things - A Splitzer for the LC-A 120

    I don’t like to split. A split means distance, separation, it means categorical divergence. We split hairs, we split incomes, we split up. So the first thing we have to know here is that a Splitzer – different from what you might have thought - is not at all a nasty boy splitting things up.

    Photographic Pairs

    When a photographer encounters a pair, an instinct rushes in, "Is this a special, intimate moment I just stumbled on?" Or else, those accidents of two objects, two birds, two swaying plants camping together especially for your photo. This might not be the case, but it's still a pleasant thing for patterns and quirks to find their way into an everyday shot.

    Pushing Boundaries: So I Heard You Like Multiple Exposures

    My name is Amber Valentine and I have a confession to make: I’m not really a photographer. I have a website full of photographs, a bookshelf full of cameras, film waiting to be developed, and a wall full of framed pictures I’ve taken. Even so, I don’t really consider myself a photographer per se. I think that Lomography is more about the experimentation and the fun of film than it is about the photography, and that experimentation is part of the reason I have embraced Lomography so.

    LomoAmigo: Cat Stevens

    London based photographer Cat Stevens uses the softer, more subtle aesthetics of film photography throughout her work. Her shoots consist of the familiar light leaks and washed out tones that most film shooters will be familiar with. 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."
