Lomo Lovers Vol. 8: Kodak

1

I wanted to start a monthly flick book for the best of lomography out there! The online books center around themes; the previous installments have already featured the legendary LC-A and LC-A+ cameras, medium format cameras, and multi-lens cameras. This installment is about the special feature we did on Kodak films and cameras after we heard about the company discontinuing their films.

Lomo Lovers was started by two sisters who have a passion for lomography and want to share what’s out there to fellow lomographers. We create monthly “inspiration books.” Different cameras, film, techniques, and maybe some specialist features—you name it, we just want to share it. We would like to thank everyone who has contributed to these issues; without you the book would be empty!

Last month we decided to do a feature special on Kodak films and cameras after hearing the news about them discontinuing their film. We also featured a popular analogue artist Adam Bronkhorst) who now has multiple analogue books as our inspirational lomographer, and a tipster on how to make the most out of film swaps and double exposures by James Butler. But, as always, the best part was seeing everyone’s truly inspirational analogue shots!

Next in our ongoing series: Sprockets. Whether you have a Sprocket Rocket, Spinner 360, Diana 35mm Back+ or Holga, we want to see your lovely sprocket goodness!

We’ve had such a great response that we have continued creating the online book. I’m always looking for submissions—after all, I have about 70 pages to fill with great photography every month!

You don’t have to be a veteran, as we feature new lomographers and seasoned ones every month. We just want to share great pictures. You can enter your submission to our Flickr Group or email me at nicnocnoo@hotmail.co.uk with your details: shot, name, camera, film, technique etc.

We are constantly looking for great lomographers to submit their work, so what’s stopping you?

If you liked this post, why don’t you check out other Lomo Lovers articles so far?

We now also have a blog where you can check out past tipsters, inspirational lomographers and lots of analogue loveliness!

    Fresh from the Lab: One Roll of Film and the Lubitel 166U

    Adi, Ekeu, and I did a lomowalk around downtown Bandung last Saturday, the beginning of November. We planned to use our Lubitel cameras with only one roll of film each. We were inspired by the One Roll of Film Project by four Tokyo-based photographers with their Hasselblad cameras. This is about the one roll of film I shot with the Lubitel 166U, which made me love shooting in medium format even more.
