A Lot of Beautiful Light


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!

    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.

    Photographic Pairs

    When a photographer encounters a pair, an instinct rushes in, "Is this a special, intimate moment I just stumbled on?" Or else, those accidents of two objects, two birds, two swaying plants camping together especially for your photo. This might not be the case, but it's still a pleasant thing for patterns and quirks to find their way into an everyday shot.
