Doubles With You - larslau & lucasjakobsson

8

A while ago I wanted to join in the fun and shoot doubles with some Lomographers from the worldwide community! One of the Lomographers that caught on was larslau from Denmark - know for his preference of infrared films!

When I started working for Lomography I had never heard about double exposures. At first the reaction was – “well this looks nice, I should try this as well!” So I did, at first by my self, had some not-so-great-results, and later with other Lomographers, one of which was Larslau from Denmark.

I must admit that one of the great advantages of working for Lomography is that I can test cameras – and also different types of film. I knew that Lars always liked shooting infrared film – and I felt like trying something new. I had never done doubles with black and white either – and for some reason I really liked the way that the Ilford SFX 200 looked at me. So I went down to the lager and checked out a roll.

I shot the roll with my LC-A+ in Vienna, and then sent it to Lars in Denmark – who has the following to add:

“I used my LC-A+ with the Tunnel Vision lens and a red gel filter and the ISO set to 200. Most of the pictures are taken at the countryside at my grandmothers. I think we rated the film to low – 150 or maybe even 100 ISO would have been better, but 150 isn’t easy to achieve on an LC-A+ (:

We didn’t achieve the “glowing foliage” infrared effect or black skies, but I didn’t suspect that we would. That will require a real infrared filter or a really deep red filter. Some of the pictures, especially No. 29 seem to have a somewhat dramatic infrared effect (similar to HIE), but I think that it is actually mainly the combination of the soft tunnel vision focus and the exposure, but I can’t be sure. So I didn’t see much infrared effect, but I think that the film produced some interesting results, and with a deeper red filter it will probably be even more interesting."

Hmm that’s a lot of talk – hope you enjoy the pictures as well!

Oh – Interested in doubles? Your next partner may be just a comment away! Remember – once you are done – do send in your double adventures to the magazine!

    Lomography Fisheye No.2: Seven Years of Wonder

    Exactly seven years ago, I bought this camera from Indonesia's local Lomography community. I remember having some savings in my bank account and just spending it all on this camera. At that time, I browsed the microsite for the Lomography Fisheye No.2 and immediately fell in love with it! Coincidentally, my friend who introduced me to Lomography just bought this same camera for his birthday. My life has changed ever since I had the Fisheye, my first lomographic camera.

    Fresh from the LomoLab: My Summer at a Campsite

    I prefer being outdoors whenever I go on a vacation at the seaside. For this reason, I always choose to stay at a campsite instead of a hotel. This year, I stayed at a beautiful one in the south of Italy. Here is a series of photos which I received a few days ago from the excellent LomoLab service, taken with my Sprocket Rocket. Have a look after the jump!

    Nothing Happens on Color Film: Street Life in Como As Seen From the Bus

    Some weeks ago, I made a tribute to the great photographer Robert Frank and his 1958 black and white series taken in New York from a bus window. He is the master of the ordinary moments, capturing the essence of daily life in a series of free and random sequence of photos where nothing important happens! And as I've written there I wanted to take a similar experiment with color film, which would change the perception of the environment where people live. Read more after the jump!
