Is That a Foot Fetish I See In My Photo Library?

5

I recently noticed something odd with my pictures, it seems that i developed a little something for...feet!

I recently entered a rumble on Lomography about cross-overs and I ended up as one of the runners-up! I was really happy about it and proudly showd it to a friend. C’mon, it was my first ‘something’ after all. He was happy for me, congratulated me and everything, but he told me that “Yes, gret! But you took a picture of feet!”. At first I was “No, what are you saying? It’s about doubles, not feet!”, but a bit later that day, I decided to put some order in my previous un-tagged pictures and realized something weird. It’s strange how I love pigeons and skyscrapers, and cat, but also…. FEET!

I swear to god I don’t have a foot fetish or anything, but I just think it’s a good subject – visually speaking. It’s also a good way to capture a person. Like the old saying goes “Show me your shoes and I will tell you who you are.” (Okay, maybe I just made that up). Mine, a stranger’s, barefoot, sneakers, boots, in action or not, sandals, high heels, colors, black and white – you name it, I love it! Did I already mention that I don’t have a foot fetish?

What about you? It’s something that I see on a regular basis. Do you also take pictures of feet, or should I start to worry about my visual/mental sanity?

    Yes. You have a foot fetish.
    At least you are not obsessed with seagulls, every time I see one I have to snap a photo - even though they are all out of focus :D Love your feet photos and you are right, it perfectly captures someone's character :D

    12 Months, 12 Projects: March Of Caffenol

    My list of resolutions for 2015 consists of 12 projects, one for every month. March was for caffenol. You have probably heard of the amazing fact that you can develop black and white photos with coffee, sodium, and vitamin C. I had tried this before but with less than stellar results. Somehow, there's always something going wrong. Time to devote a few rolls to caffenol to finally get the hang of it.

    My Year in Analogue: Something New, Something Old

    Hi, everyone! I'd like to share with you my 2014 summary on analogue photography. Some things I did were completely new, while some were my good old habits. This year I learned how to develop black and white film, which I consider my greatest milestone. But the most important thing is that in 2014, I remain in love with Lomography! And the rest? Well, let's see...

    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.

    A Vintage Gallery of Human Formations

    Some days, things seem to align for your street shot. The subjects form photo-ready queues that mimic architectural details around. Other times, an arrangement is made. Stretch this way, pose here, move a little forward for a group picture in strategic shapes and patterns.

You can see the movements and facial expressions of people - it’s priceless! Documenting life in moving pictures, the Lomokino can be used as a camera that not only shoots moving pictures but also works like the multi-frame wonder camera, Supersampler!

    What exactly do I feel while waiting for my Lomo'Instant photos to be developed? I have to say I get a mix of "Surprise me, dear Lomo!" but also some "Did I capture it as I wanted?" kind of thought. No matter the school of thought, with the Splitzer you can add so many cool effects to your photos you'll definitely embrace it!

    Fresh from the Lab: 1990

    A weekend without a lomowalk seems bad, at least for me. One Saturday morning, I decided to join my friends in their lomowalk. It was all cloudy at first but it didn't stop me from going out and walking. I brought my new Nikon FM2 and some expired rolls, just to test my camera. Was it just me being sleepy, or was my Nikon FM2 acting up? My photos turned out grainy, pale, and, in my opinion, looking so 1990s?

    Petzval Amigo: Chloé Vollmer-Lo

    Chloé Vollmer-Lo's photos speak for themselves. Every image, whether it's a portrait or a seemingly simple snapshot of a street alley, tells a story. The Paris-based photographer tested the New Petzval Lens 85 recently, and the results, as expected, speak volumes. She talks about her experience as a freelance photographer - and with the New Petzval Lens 85 - in this exclusive interview.

    Speakers' Corner: Interview with Photographer Philip Wolmuth

    Having a respectable career photographing social, political and economical matters, Philip Wolmuth is capable of starting a dialogue with the public via his thought-provoking photographs. Going through the collective of images on his latest work, it seems impossible not to be instantly affected by the rawness of the emotions captured within the images. The passion, the anger, the commotion, the rebellion, the fervor, the shouting, the devotion; his work is inebriating. It's as if the images are screaming at you and, for a short while, you are transported to the Speakers' Corner without actually setting foot on that location.
