No snowboarding here! Winter activities from a clumsy Australian in cold Canada.
Last winter was my third real winter, and it sure was one hell of a long winter. Everyone who heard my accent commented that it was the worst winter to have been living in London (Ontario, Canada) that they can remember and with that ‘snowapocalypse’ that we had in December and the following snow storms I can definitely see what they meant. When I told them that I’d be returning home for this winter therefore our summer people would ask if i would miss the cold during the next year and a half of me chasing the summer around the globe? Nope. Will I miss how pretty the snow makes everything when it’s freshly fallen? Yes.
So what activities can an un-sports minded person get into when the snow is falling? Baking, scrapbooking, blogging, reading up on the latest analogue happenings? Yes all of these, but then again they aren’t really embracing the cold white stuff are they? Sometimes you just have to brave it and get out there with your camera and have some fun!
I started a series during fall and here’s the album. So I just had to get out there and do a follow up to it, and here are the results!
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!
The cold weather is steadily creeping in at Lomography HQ in Vienna. It filled us with nostalgic joy to discover a whole new selection of wonderful end-of-Summer photos taken with the LC-A 120 throughout the Austrian countryside by our colleague Dream. If you also have the early winter blues, this fantastic gallery should help soothe the pain!
"Grandpa's Photos" is exactly what it says on the title - vintage photographs taken by an Australian man named Stephen Clarke who frequently went on trips around the world. But make no mistake in concluding that it's simply a showcase; Clarke's grandson, Dave Tomkins, has also taken it upon himself to honor his late grandfather as a talented photographer. In this interview, Tomkins introduces him to us and shares the idea behind his personal project.
Daniela Majic is a Canada-based portrait photographer who tells unique, dreamy, and fairy tale-like stories with her camera. She blends her love for fashion and craft-making in creating a theme that seems magical. Here's an interview with Majic along with a series of photographs from her latest work shot with the Petzval Art Lens, "Secret Garden," which wraps around a very intriguing concept.
It was a cold and cloudy winter day in 2012 when I came up with the idea of compiling photographs of people's faces. I decided that the most personal way to do it is through instant shots. They are one of a kind and you immediately have something in your hands.
For most people, winter means staying indoors and bundling up in warm clothes. But for a group of monks in Japan, the season means an opportunity to discipline themselves in a ceremony that requires them to wear minimal clothing and splash cold water on themselves.
In New York City, winter has been harsh and long, the nights long and cold, and shooting outside is not fun anymore. So when the Lomo'Instant Boston Edition hit the shelves this week and the new Splitzer arrived at the Lomography Gallery Store New York, we decided to do a round of light painting portraits instead of sunny ones.
