Since I got the LC-Wide Instant Kit, I have been able to get a lot closer to the subject of my photographs than ever before. See below to find out more.
When I first got my Lomo LC-Wide, it was fair to say that I was happy with the results and I loved the wide angle photos it produced, a selection of which can be seen below.
Although I liked the pictures it produced, I was always a bit miffed as to why they didn’t look the same as they did when I had originally lined them up in my little viewfinder. I always seemed to be distinctly further away than I remembered when I had taken the photo and I wasn’t really sure how to fix this problem. When I went on a lomowalk in Manchester at the start of this year, someone informed me that the LC-Wide Instant Kit could be the answer to my prayers. Obviously the main purpose of the kit is to make it so that you can use the LC-Wide with the Instant Back but it comes also with a handy attachment for the viewfinder, which is a lot wider than the original one on the camera. I now use this on my LC-Wide all the time, so that I can get a better idea of what my photos are going to look like in the end.
You may think that it is quite pricey for what it is (it is almost £20), but I think that it makes my photos so much better and gives me a much more accurate representation of what will be in my photograph when I get it back from the lab. This has allowed me to line things up a lot better, and get a lot closer than ever before.
Hello, fellow lomographers! To be honest, ever since I started working last year, I haven't been able to write a single analogue lifestyle piece. But today I decided to write something about my days, especially about my weekend in Bandung. It's not much but I take it as the start of a new beginning in writing all over again here. So, here's my weekend in Bandung!
For the past three months, I've been living alternately between three cities: Bandung, Bogor, and Jakarta. I'm originally from Bandung. I now work in Bogor, sometimes in Jakarta. I could be in Bogor on a Friday, Bandung on a Saturday, and Jakarta on a Monday. Shuttling between these three cities, I don't forget to document what I see and experience with my LC-Wide.
There's a lot that you can do with a Lomo LC-A+/Lomo LC-Wide and a Krab, besides the obvious (which is take it in the water with you). Get creative by trying various angles and perspectives; you'll be surprised how a slight tilt can make a dramatic difference to your photos. Take a look at the gallery below for some inspiration!

Photographs with sprocket holes exposed are practically a dime a dozen these days but, of course, this wasn't the case more than 50 years ago. However, former freelance photographer Michael Ciavolino was already able to create one of the earliest examples of this technique back in the early '60s in his groundbreaking photograph called "Boat Ride, Rye Beach." Find out the fascinating story behind this photo, as well as how and why he did it in this exclusive Lomography feature!
