Retro meets retro but not face to face :) I always wanted to redscale a medium format film, and this time got a chance to play with the right one, without a paper. It’s a 220 film, not 120 and as we all know it has two differences: (a) no paper, only film and (b) the film is twice longer.
I’ve grabbed a few rolls from the same guy that sold me Kodak Vericolor III, redscaled them in a darkest corner of the apartment and shoot it like 40 ISO with my Kiev-6C (sometimes with a macro rings). Why 40? Because the original ISO is 160, but the film is too old, hence 80 ISO. And another correction was because the film is being shot from the plastic side (contrary to the emulsion side).
I definitely enjoyed the results. Next time will try with a plastic lens camera as well :)
If you'd be shooting in low light, at night, or in any other situation that would require a high speed film for best results, why don't you try the Lomography Color Negative 800 for 35mm cameras?

It is always a pleasant experience collaborating with our old friends and LomoAmigos. This time, Emily Soto shot another wonderful series with her Petzval Art Lens. We can't wait to share it with everyone, so here they are!
Lomographers love reflections. Peruse the website and you are bound to find water puddles mirroring trees and glass windows duplicating people's motions. What beautiful sights to record indeed! But how else can we approach this doppelgänger effect? Seven ace photographers give us wonderful ideas.
April 23 marked World Book Day, a UNESCO-designated annual event held in celebration of books and reading all over the globe. To commemorate, here are fascinating images of people from several decades ago, reading not on Kindles or iPads as many are wont to do today, but actual books, newspapers, and other forms of the written word.
The Rolling Stones in circus masks, a bare-faced David Bowie and Johnny Rotten in a bulldog clipped-jacket. Such details Anton Corbijn has ingrained in rock history. These images plus 300 more of Arcade Fire, Nirvana, Siouxsie Sioux, REM, U2, Nick Cave and Depeche Mode have a collective premiere at Fotomuseum Den Haag.
Before smartphones and digital cameras, Diego Uchitel used a Polaroid to test his lighting. For many of his subjects, these dress rehearsal shots turned out as marvelous as the published pictures. David Bowie, Sarah Jessica Parker, Gisele Bundchen and many other celebrities exposed their delicate side for Uchitel's magical lens even after the main show.
