San Francisco analogue shooter and Lomography intern Elena Kulikova is no stranger to special effects; She’s got great albums dedicated to DIY effects including lens flares, light leaks, kaleidoscopes, prisms and more.

She also has a pair of 3D Fireworks Glasses that she loves. When worn, these glasses create multi-colored reflective bursts from even the faintest of light sources. For photographic purposes, they can even be used by pointing the camera at the sun or other bright & shiny objects. Once the film is developed, starbursts of rainbow fireworks will fill your photographs.

There’s no stopping there of course, you can bring the magic into your nightlife too. Try this on the 4th of July: Just place the sparkly 3D fireworks glasses in front of your lens, point your camera towards the lights in the sky, then release the shutter! lens All cameras are eligible to participate and will bring extra sparkly fun to an already colorful fireworks show. The Instax adapters for the Diana F+ and LC-A+ will, of course, may be be the most gratifying and can bring the fastest results!!!

The glasses are super cheap, you can buy a pair on Amazon.com for less than $3, or a pack of 10 for only $9. You and your friends to enjoy a sparkly fireworks show this coming 4th of July, or any other day of the year!

Order yours immediately and give them a shot before the show on the 4th! Have fun and Lomo on!

    That's funny. I had some of these same types of glassess (hearts and stars) and tried the same thing last Christmas, using the Christmas tree lights. I haven't posted the photos, but this has inspired me to consider posting them. Thank you.

    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.

    Chemical Manipulations with the Lomo’Instant

    Perhaps you’ve already had chance to try light painting, multiple exposures and long exposures with your Lomo’Instant, but what can you experiment with next? Well, that’s exactly the thought I had which led to giving this Tipster a go. I wanted to shoot Lomo’Instant photos which felt a bit “messier” than what I’m usually used to and to use a technique which would open up new possibilities with the kinds of images I could create with my favorite instant camera. Well, here I go!

    Analog By Nature

    It's late October in Copenhagen and summer was well and truly behind us. With the nights drawing in, the chances of going out with one of my cameras was slim. All was not lost at this time of year, however, as it allowed me time to focus on my own personal music projects—I am a professional composer/musician and audio engineer at my own studio by day.

    Registering Moments With the Lomo'Instant

    Some people say instant photos bring about a feeling of nostalgia. Although I often use the Lomo'Instant Camera with different crazy accessories such as the Splitzer and color gels, I have to agree there is something about it — dreamy vignettes maybe? — that always makes me want to go back in time and experience it all over again. In the name of analogue photography and good old memories, we passed by some classic spots in Vienna and took one shot after the other. Take a closer look at our gallery.

Before clicking the shutter, he tends to "wait for a particular moment or weather condition" that fits the image he has in mind. In this interview, he shares more about his passion for shooting on film as well as some of his favorite landscape images.
