Taking extreme close-ups with your Lomo LC-A+ is easy!
All you need is your Lomo LC-A+ and a magnifying glass. The important thing to remember to keep this tip simple is to use a magnifying glass with a handle, otherwise it’s just awkward. You need to experiment with your magnifying glass to find the “sweet spot” for pics to be in focus. I found that it works best when I hold the glass touching the camera with the center (the thickest part) in line with its lens and hold the entire apparatus about 3 inches from the subject.
The above pics were taken with the aperture fully open (f2.8). I think this increases the bokeh, or blurriness, in the background, but I haven’t experimented with it enough to know for sure.
There's a lot that you can do with a Lomo LC-A+/Lomo LC-Wide and a Krab, besides the obvious (which is take it in the water with you). Get creative by trying various angles and perspectives; you'll be surprised how a slight tilt can make a dramatic difference to your photos. Take a look at the gallery below for some inspiration!
