Doubles With You - larslau & lucasjakobsson


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!

    Camera Collections: theonlydrp's Vintage and Handmade Gear

    Some lomographers prefer to hoard as many analog cameras their shelves and budgets can support. Some would rather keep a manageable number that they can regularly shoot with. Community member Joshua Kennedy belongs to the latter group. From 40 cameras, he downsized his collection to 13, as he puts it, "really good ones" that suit his shooting habits and style. In this interview, he breaks down his small yet dependable arsenal of vintage and handmade cameras and how an organized schedule allows him to shoot with each one on a regular basis.

    This article is dedicated to one of the most important masters of photography, Robert Capa.
