Try cutting up your negatives and sticking them back together!
I took some old negatives and simply cut into them and then stuck them back together with tape. Once I had done this I just scanned them back in. The tape creates some nice line and texture and the cuts create hard lines and patterns. Try to be creative with the cuts making them fit in with the picture or try cutting and sticking two completely different negative together.
After years of experience covering wars, riding with outlaws, and evading two death sentences, what do you do next? Veteran photographer Yan Morvan went back to his roots and published a book about gangs - back to where it all started. See more of his photos and read on about them after the cut.
Lomography's on a mission to conquer the world of instant photography, and we need your help to reach this goal. Find out how you can contribute (and be rewarded with a super cool close-up lens, too!) after the cut!
This is an introduction to using a candle flame to manipulate and distort your negatives. This process results in melted, stretched, and twisted images with colour shifts. Proceed with caution there is no going back.
Have you ever tried going lens-less when taking a photo? Try shooting with ONDU Pinhole Cameras and see what it's like to take photos through a tiny pinhole. Check out these lovely shots taken by Lomographers; if you do have some ONDU pinhole photos of your own, upload and tag them accordingly so that we can see them!
It’s been a long and cold winter but we’re finally getting back into the swing of things here in Chicago. We’ve got a great month of events and workshops coming up, so dust off those cameras that have been sitting around all winter and let’s take some pictures together!
