Featuring a camera that so few of us have seen or even heard of, the Camera Review of the Week takes Lomography beyond borders and into a whole new level!
Words fail us with this week’s featured Camera Review. For us mild-mannered folk, it behold wonder and excitement as it is probably the first time we ever saw one of its kind. For the ones in the dental industry however, its a whole different story. But the fact of the matter is, the Yashica Dental Eye is freaking awesome! blue-dog was able to procure one and boy, is it a sight to behold. While it is designed for mouths and teeth, such constraints never stopped enterprising Lomgoraphers before from making great photos before and here’s the best example you could hope for. Congrats!
The original Konstruktor is a fun camera to build and takes wonderful photos. But what would make it better? A way to add flash and even a few of your existing Lomography flashes into the mix, perhaps? Thank you, I’ll be having that.
The Pop 9 is an analog multilens wonder that allows you to take a mosaic of nine images in one frame à la Andy Warhol's famous pop art.

With a love of antique cameras and analogue photography, Shawn Lin has long been an active member of the Lomography Community with dozens of his shots being featured. Shawn likes to explore the effects of double exposure on different themes and objects, with an emphasis on the presentation of colours.

I backed the Kickstarter project for the Lomo’Instant earlier this year and was thrilled to receive it last week. I love how the camera naturally encourages you to experiment with its different features, whether it’s through flashing your multiple exposures with different colors or trying different creative techniques after your shots has been ejected. Here are a few tips from what I’ve discovered from playing with the camera so far (and a couple of tips I want to try out in future)!

The things you can see at a fashion show are incredibly beautiful and almost perfect, even beyond the runway and further backstage. Fashion Photographer Anna Fischer shows us some backstage scenes during the New York Fashion Week with this erotic and beautiful Petzval photo series.
You want your subject be the center of attention? Petzval lens photos are recognizable for sharpness and crispness in the centre, strong color saturation, wonderful swirly bokeh effect, artful vignettes and narrow depth of field that will make your subjects stand out!
The Lomography Community is a treasure trove of inspired talent. And behind all that talent are great minds and voices that are not always heard on the Magazine. Thankfully, Lomohomes have a Notes feature that allows every community member to express himself freely.
