A mixture of nature and architecture. We have been there at night to take more shots and people stopped thinking we had an accident.
The Mittellandkanal is the longest water transportation route that was built in Germany. It is connecting Dortmund-Ems-Kanal and river Elbe. The decision was made in 1905 to build this canal. In 1938 it was finished, but widened later.
There are lots of bridges over it and the one I love to go to is in Sachsenhagen.
Sachsenhagen is a city, although it has only 2000 inhabitants. It gained the right to be called “city” in 1650. Mittellandcanal has even a “harbour” in Sachsenhagen. The bridge I like I had to cross to go to work. So I saw it nearly every day, in every season and in every light condition. I like going there when the sun sets, like being there to take shots of the structure of the bridge, shoot the reflections on the water, the boats, the clouds, cars and people passing, the nature around. It is not quiet, it is not special, but I like being there and Mister Flinky enjoyed it, too!
Lassi, one of our awesome Petzval Lens Kickstarter backers, came to visit us at Lomography HQ this week. We had a brilliant time introducing him to the Lomography team, showing him some of the Vienna sights and generally having fun. As part of the trip, we organized a special photo-shoot in which we took photos with a vintage Petzval lens on a Sinar P2 4x5 camera. Head past the jump to find out more about the great time we had with Lassi and to see some old-school Petzval shots!
This August, we bring you back to your roots and explore the wonders of nature! First, we cook up a storm with a film soup experiment. Followed by nature photowalks at beautiful scenic parks in Singapore to unearth the tips & tricks of trouble exposure, as well as the unique methods to perfect our macro shots. To cap off the learning month, we'll gather on a cozy Friday night for a new special sharing series by the Lomography Community -- with Sharing Session #1: Nature.
Any analogue enthusiast worth his salt will know what features an analogue photo needs to have to stand out in a sea of digital shots. And they might as well just stop looking for pixels in photographer Nastya Kaletkina’s work.
Take a step closer to your subject and discover a whole new realm of amazing patterns and shapes. Add the signature colors from a redscale film for an amazing architecture shot that's truly POTD material!
The skies were busy with magic today — or maybe it was just the solar eclipse that caused all that ruckus? Decked out in space-age goggles and other various sun viewing paraphernalia, groups of people gathered as the moon moved between the sun and the earth this morning across Europe. Only a few lucky folks witnessed the total eclipse, and here at Vienna HQ, the greatest moment of the partial eclipse happened at 10:45 A.M. and lasted only a few minutes. We stopped everything we were doing to join the sky watchers crew and share in this astonishing moment. Check out these brilliant solar-inspired shots to celebrate the occasion!
You might think that a camera as small and cute as the Diana Mini is a gimmick - just a little something to take on holidays for snaps. And though it's a fine camera for doing just that, there's more to it than just taking snaps! Take advantage of its versatile features and turn your camera into a creative powerhouse!
All of the turkey and pie might be gone, but there are still Black Friday deals to be had! Check out these 30 primo black and white shots from the Belair and then head to the Online Shop to save an incredible 30% on this and plenty more analogue gems!
Have you ventured into light painting before? It's so fun and there are so many ways for you to explore it, we promise you'll never get bored. The folks here at HQ had a blast playing around with the Lomo'Instant and the result was a bunch of adorable, colorful photos!
I have good memories of Tagaytay Highlands. There had been times when some of my friends and I would spend the weekend there, playing all sorts of sports and having our bodies healed in the warm and lapping jacuzzi pool. But those were distant memories. I was able to go back to this place, but only for an afternoon, and tried to remember the good old days.
