Ever wondered what it would be like to have X-ray vision? How about possessing X-ray vision AND a Leica M6 camera? We found this illustration that shows us what it's like to have both and it is looking pretty cool! Do you know who the artist is?
We found this image on Tumblr and just had to share it with you guys! Above is a color drawing of the Leica M6—a rangefinder produced in Germany between 1984 to 1998—which appears to be sliced and spliced in strategic areas to reveal the inner workings of the classic camera. You can even see a bit of 35mm film lead in.
The illustration reminds us of “Under the Lens,” the photographic experiment which involved cutting through an actual Leica lens (gasp!) and it’s super cool! We love how 80’s it is too with its hand-drawn, color pencil-looking finish. Unfortunately, we were not able to find out who the artist is so if you’ve got any info, hit us up in the comments below!
Singapore, like Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong, is a likely stopover when you fly far. The city is a tiny urbanized hub but it's very favorable if you know some high-spirited locals. I was lucky to hook up with king kimbo (@hakimbo), who showed me around. He took my lame limbs to the Gardens by the Bay, an amazing place which was visually striking. I was hugging some artificial trees there when I found a baby—a very big baby.
Have you ever tried going lens-less when taking a photo? Try shooting with ONDU Pinhole Cameras and see what it's like to take photos through a tiny pinhole. Check out these lovely shots taken by Lomographers; if you do have some ONDU pinhole photos of your own, upload and tag them accordingly so that we can see them!
As all you lomographers will know, since its re-inception we have been following the tracks of the Petzval Lens. Indeed, this bokeh-genius has been traveling far and wide, falling into the hands of many a photographer the world over. We decided to put together this little catalog of talented artists and their most enticing photographs, shot using the Petzval lens, so we can show you what wonders and mischief we have brought upon us. Come take a look at the outcome of the Petzval’s transnational journey.
I don’t like to split. A split means distance, separation, it means categorical divergence. We split hairs, we split incomes, we split up. So the first thing we have to know here is that a Splitzer – different from what you might have thought - is not at all a nasty boy splitting things up.
Have you ever wondered why those nerdy camera constructors formulate complicated terms that baffle most normal citizens? Trust me, I know it all too well; Physics was the first subject to go when I had to choose between studying and spending yet another night pursuing youthful adventures. But don't worry — the remedy for all of the gaps in your knowledge is right here: Lomography’s Little Lessons on Photography. Follow this series and in no time you'll catch up on everything your curious mind desires!
