A Lot of Beautiful Light

16

Some people hate it, while some people don't. The measure of light in a Lomograph when it is too much might be a mistake but worry not for it can also be really beautiful!

Over exposed Lomographs can really be a drag sometimes. When you’ve pushed your aperture too high and a lot of light seeps in, then that means a lot of tones and a splash of washed colour! But in this wonderful world of analogue, over exposed Lomographs can also be the most beautiful!

That’s why in this week’s gallery post, we have decided to showcase 50 amazing over exposed Lomographs in our Community! Enjoy!

    @mayeemayee thanks for including my pics. mainly the ice-mobile because i really like this shot a lot just because it is so overexposed. i have another correct exposed shot of it with another cam and it´s not looking half as good ;)

    Thanks :) when I got the negatives back from the lab, I was really sad that they were that much overexposed, and thought that I could throw away the whole film. But after scanning, I loved the effect! And seeing this amazing gallery shows me that I'm not the only one :)

    Some great inspiration here. The great thing about film is it forces you to look at the results. You can't chimp and immediately delete an image. Its always there and can often surprise.

    The World According to Herr Willie: Olympiastadion Berlin

    The 2015 UEFA Champions League Final will be held at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin on June 6. It is a place full of history and is also the only football stadium with a blue track course. Some say it is the most beautiful stadium in the world, and I totally agree with them. But then agai,n I might be biased because it is the home court of my favorite team, Hertha BSC Berlin—my blue-white bloodline.

    I don't care if this film has been reviewed a zillion times, that it has already been discontinued, or that there might be a Japanese version of it. The Agfa CT Precisa that I know gives me the blues. Oh, yes - not a Chelsea FC fan, but this film is all about the color blue. Say hello to the blues!

    4 Years in Paradise: Living and Learning in French Polynesia

    People seek extraordinary experiences while traveling, but not everyone gets to have an adventure of a lifetime. When lomographer Stephane Heinz (popularly known as vicuna in the Lomography community) saw the opportunity, he took the chance to travel and live miles away from his hometown in France. He and his wife, Kathi, came back home with a luggage full of valuable experiences and life lessons. Vicuna tells us about his four-year adventure in French Polynesia in this travel special.
