Doubles with You: mephisto19 and lomosexual_manboy


What resulted were some lovely and well traveled doubles with creamy green and yellow tones. So the moral of this story is when you get asked to do doubles with an amazing lomographer; don't hesitate and just do it.

When mephisto19 had first suggested to me that we do doubles together I was a little bit hesitant. My local lab had just closed down and I was in the process of finding a new one. I had two other rolls of film for doubles lined up to shoot. And to top it off I was about to head out to Chicago for an undetermined amount of time. After a couple minutes I came to my senses and thought, “The real question here is how can I possibly pass this up.” So I quickly told mephisto19 I’m all in and he then sent me out a roll of Fuji Sensia 200 which he had already shot.

I received the roll right before heading off to Chicago and I packed it in a box that could be sent out to me after I arrived if I so choose. Well, this turned out not to be the case as my trip was cut short, but upon return and unpacking there it was waiting for me in its little tin shell. So I quickly loaded that bad boy into my Lomo LC-A and got to shooting.

    Vicuna's Travel Stories | Burkina Faso: The Land of Upright People

    When someone asks me why I love Burkina Faso so much and what's so special about it, I answer without any hesitation: the people. There's something in this country that connects the people together very strongly. Here, foreign visitors are warmly welcomed. And honestly, I think that the portraits I'm most proud of and that I really love are those shot in Burkina Faso. "Why," you ask?

    My New York City Bike Ride Through Purple Eyes

    What do you do when you don't have much time in a city like New York but you want to see everything, feel the vibe and be part of the community, even for a short time? Jump on a bike and enjoy what trains, buses and cabs can never give you: be part of the city. Take a camera with you to capture the moments and sights you don't want to forget. I did this with my LC-A 120 and LomoChrome Purple film.

    Pushing Boundaries: Multiple Exposing Film Soup

    As you may have read in my previous article, I truly fell in love with Lomography when I combined my Fisheye camera with an old Canon AE-1 for magical photographic results. Last summer, I took so many pictures of flowers that it started to become almost boring for me. My waning interest and the coming winter meant that I had to figure out something else to do with my 35mm film.

    So here’s what we’ve been working on: an all new

    For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on won't be reflected on and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.
