My partner and I visited various surf spots in Ericeira and the region around Lisboa last month and it was the perfect trip to try out my Fisheye No.2, and my brand new Submarine!
Before starting our surfing trip in Portugal, I searched for a good underwater camera to shoot some fun pictures while surfing or at least an opportunity to secure my beloved lomo cams from water damage. I found a lot of disposable ones from the drugstore for instance or some cheap digital solutions, but finally I decided to buy the Submarine for my Fisheye No. 2 Lime Punch.
I really like shooting with it although I did not try to completely go underwater with it every time. I will try it the next time for sure!
The Submarine is always recommended for fun water photos especially because it does not sink! (Well you think of course it should not sink but I believe I already lost two underwater cams while riding some uncomfortable waves. They just sank down and I never saw them again!) And do not forget to switch on your flash underwater. ;)
Here some more pics taken with my LC-A and the Fisheye:
I went to the Victoria & Albert Museum's Friday Late, an event that takes place every last Friday evening of the month. For March 2014, the London borough of Tottenham was invited to curate an evening of creativity. There were a number of events that went on ranging from music and art to fashion and film. Accompanied by my LC-A+ and Fisheye No. 2, here are my highlights of that evening in photographs.
To celebrate his birthday last year, gatokinetik-o embarked on a solo backpacking trip to the Peruvian northern coast and the Amazon region. With him in his return home are beautiful memories, embodied by photographs doused in various shades of red.
Aside from the fact that Ubud is a must-visit tourist spot in Bali, it is also the perfect place to relax and get inspired. There, you’ll see and feel something different. Staying there for a month in 2012 made me discover good places to visit. If ever you'll be in Bali for a holiday, don't forget to visit Ubud. Now, I shall take you on a quick visit to this town!
This year's Nixon Surf Challenge was held in Hainan, China. The Nixon team brought some the LC-A+, Fisheye No. 2 and the LC-Wide during the event. Catch a glimpse of Hainan and and the surfers' itinerary through photos taken with these well-loved Lomography cameras.
Last year, schugger surprised fellow lomographer, turtle_cologne, with a Lomography Fisheye No. 2 during the latter's birthday. In the end, she was the one who got completely mesmerized by this wide-eyed wonder and started her own analogue journey!
Exactly seven years ago, I bought this camera from Indonesia's local Lomography community. I remember having some savings in my bank account and just spending it all on this camera. At that time, I browsed the microsite for the Lomography Fisheye No.2 and immediately fell in love with it! Coincidentally, my friend who introduced me to Lomography just bought this same camera for his birthday. My life has changed ever since I had the Fisheye, my first lomographic camera.
My wife and I suffered a family loss in October 2013 so we decided to shift things around and have a celebration of life—a wedding, actually—to associate our loss with the beginning of something positive and memorable. We have been together for nearly 13 years and after getting married, we headed off on a three-month trip to South America and a few other stops to complete a round-the-world loop back to Australia.
Although its existence has always been known among locals, it was only in 1913 when the rest of the world was introduced to the Inca site of Machu Picchu through an expedition headed by Yale University and professor Hiram Bingham.
As a wildlife cameraman and photographer, Ian Llewelyn has worked on a number of television projects. The UK-based lensman breaks free from the strict confines of his profession by engaging in monochrome photography. His personal work is a plethora of abstract and experimental imagery, created in a style distinctly his own. Llewelyn is an ardent user of a Leica Monochrom camera, on which he mounted the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Lens, producing the most imaginative, phantasmic results.
