Check out our latest 'Doubles With You' partners stouf and rater, as they embark on an x-pro film swap between Quebec and Halifax.
Despite living in the same city, or maybe because of that, Stouf and I never did a film swap… we have shot together, develope film together but no swaps between us. But then in June he went to Halifax for one month and while he was there he asked me to sent him a package of films that arrived at his place while he was out. And then I thought, hey, I will shot some films in Quebec and then send it to him in the same package so he can do some doubles in Halifax.
So I took my Holga and while going to his place to pick up his package I took photos with 3 Velvia (120 film, 100 iso). That was 36 photos I shot in 1 hour, roughly a photo each 2 minutes. Then I sent the films to Halifax with a message to stouf asking him to do some doubles. He shot the films with his Holga GN spiced with a green filter. After that he took the films to a lab in Halifax to do a cross-process and when he came back to Quebec he gave me the films so I could scan them.
And the results are nice, I specially like 3 of the doubles we did (guess which ones!), though sometimes the layer I shot is not that apparent in the final result. Maybe is because I shot mostly with the sun aperture of my Holga (I have a modified Holga, I did it as stouf explains in his Lovely Holga Tipster and it was actually not that sunny! Anyway, love the results (xpro rules!) and i am looking forward of doing more swaps!!
They may be miles apart but it didn't stop these two lomographers from exchanging creative ideas and film rolls! Have look at this fiery film swap in this edition of <a href="http://www.lomography.com/magazine/tags/14084-doubles-with-you"> Doubles With You. </a>
Are you ready for an adrenaline rush? A little while ago, we teamed up with the snowboard and film-making collective Yougofirst and gave them a LomoKino and some film rolls to play with. After a season of crazy riding, jumps and tricks, they have finished their latest movie HETEROTOPIA which features footage shot with our 35mm movie-maker. We had the chance to catch up with Vid and Matic from the collective about the new movie and their experiences shooting analogue on the slopes. It's also our pleasure to showcase the movie here!
In December last year James Wright, editor and creative director of So It Goes Magazine, went on a two-week trip to Sri Lanka, "a place so long on our bucket list, but up until then, as yet unvisited," he writes on the first of his three-part photo diary. Herein is the first of his series that chronicles his adventures, highlighted by a selection of breathtaking images of the Sri Lankan countryside and the locals, among many other images, captured with his trusty photographic companions: the Leica MP, Lomo LC-A+, and an assortment of films including the LomoChrome Purple.
I don't know many bands from Russia but one that I've been admiring for years is Motorama from Rostov-on-Don. With catchy tunes and adorable videos, they took my heart by storm and that of fans from all over the world. Because of their Russian origin, Motorama is of course familiar with Lomo products. Reason enough to let them become our latest LomoAmigos! Enjoy the interview with singer Vlad and check out their B&W photos, taken with a La Sardina Splendour.
Our community will never run out of ideas when it comes to doubles and film swaps. Case in point, this mind-boggling self-portrait that indeed screams how much he is into film photography. Congratulations to earlybird for having our Photo of the Day!
