Lomographer Nicola Clark (nicnocnoo) has been busy with a monthly online book called Lomo Lovers, featuring the best of lomography out there! The online books center around themes, such as the legendary LC-A and LC-A+ cameras, medium format cameras, and multi-lens cameras. Read about the ongoing series after the jump!
I work as a packaging and branding designer in London and I’ve always had a keen eye for photography and design. I got my first analogue camera back in December 2010 for Christmas, a Holga 120 CFN, and had the bug ever since. I have developed a love of Lomography cameras and my current count is 25 give or take. Over the last couple of years I have been fortunate enough to have won about 6 of them so it’s not solely my addiction to buying them (I like to think).
I love love love slide film, and my favourites are currently Fuji Velvia 100F and Lomography X-Pro Chrome 100. I love the punchy colours and crazy results, and I have an addiction to multiple exposures.
I’m not much of a writer, and that’s why I feel my online book series works so well, it lets the photos speak for themselves. I would love to turn it in to a blog, but I just don’t have the time to blog every day with my busy job. So, I thought a monthly online book would suit me down to the ground.
Lomo Lovers came to me one night while I was in bed (as sad as that sounds). I wanted to show off what was out there, people I had seen, different techniques, amazing lomographers all in one easy place. So I though why not come up with an online flick book that people could scan through, get inspiration from, learn techniques and get involved.
Each month there will be different themes for the main bulk of the book, say different cameras, techniques and films. Then, I would invite an inspirational photographer to answer a few questions, show off their favourite work and inspire our readers. There is then a part in the book for the Lomo Lovers Tipster, where I find a technique that I think people would be interested in and ask a specialist to talk us through it. As I’m quite a novice in the world of Lomography I have found these tipsters great and easy to follow. They have inspired me to try new things and it’s great that I have had such a great response from fellow lomographers saying the same.
