Oh, bring back the scorching days of the summer where the sky was a different shade of blue every day and the people are at one....
The Big Chill is held in Herefordshire in the UK. This beautiful deer park is hijacked every year in August to hold a beautiful festival of alternative, dance and chill-out music. The beauty of this festival is the merging of eclectic music and people, creating a peace loving and hippy-dippy feel, day or night.
From the dance tent on a sunny afternoon, to bison grass mojitos in the middle of a field, then David Byrne on the main stage, to tea and toast in grannies cafe. Every day a perfect day with beer and coconut water flowing…. Colour and happiness is the order of the day at The Big Chill.
Probably the most perfect thing about the Big Chill for me was being surrounded by like minded people. Chatting to a family at the bubble stand or relaxing on the grass having a drink with friendly folk who share some of their local cider with you.
As the sun sets and the night draws in, the atmosphere changes as the anticipation of the big bands starts to take hold. The whole festival awaits Orbital! People mooching around with woolen blankets wrapped around them to keep the cold at bay – Strangers sharing a hip flask of brandy…
Friendly friendly people – I hope I’ve done this amazing festival justice. Bring back the Summer!
There are small pleasures and big pleasures. A small one, like eating a chocolate after lunch, the first day of summer after a cold spring or finally meeting that girl you see every day on your morning commute can be more satisfying than anything else. As for me, shooting live music shows with the Petzval Lens is one of those small pleasures.
Every summer, my soul screams for a lazy, hot day back at my parents' home, for some good food, relaxation, and catching up with childhood friends. This year is no different, so I went back down to my small hometown in the very northeast of Belgium to enjoy a perfect laid back day doing nothing and everything. And of course, I brought my analogue cameras along to eternalize all of these small but grand moments in life.
August 24, 2014 was a great day because of the We The Fest 2014! Maybe it's too early to call it the biggest summer music festival in Jakarta because this has just been its first edition. Nevertheless, my girl and I enjoyed every moment of it!
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!
Some people say instant photos bring about a feeling of nostalgia. Although I often use the Lomo'Instant Camera with different crazy accessories such as the Splitzer and color gels, I have to agree there is something about it — dreamy vignettes maybe? — that always makes me want to go back in time and experience it all over again. In the name of analogue photography and good old memories, we passed by some classic spots in Vienna and took one shot after the other. Take a closer look at our gallery.
"Magical" here means that every time I use the Diana F+, the results are always beyond both my expectations and imagination. That's why I always use it when I feel like doing something different. It has never failed me since day one; I even always bring this camera during my trips!
It's been a boiling, scorching, baking hot summer here in the Philippines since March, and believe it or not, I haven't been to the beach yet. I'm going to do something about that, but not without making another playlist for the trip! This time, I decided to make a mix inspired by the summer vacations of my younger days.
Every year I get the winter blues. I start imagining the feel of the sunrays, ice cold beer after a long summer day, and the endless hours spent on the beach. I have captured moments, memories, and dreams this year, which is my favorite thing to do. This is a short version and visual diary of my year 2014.
Every summer Carnaby Street and its surrounding areas have a big shopping party with late openings, deals, offers, gifts, DJs and street music. This year they made a video documenting the night and we are in it! Check it out, it'll make you want to come to the next one.
It's late October in Copenhagen and summer was well and truly behind us. With the nights drawing in, the chances of going out with one of my cameras was slim. All was not lost at this time of year, however, as it allowed me time to focus on my own personal music projects—I am a professional composer/musician and audio engineer at my own studio by day.
Summer is about to begin, and Barcelona has just launched the hottest season of the year with a sonic boom - a three-day and -night festival of booming music, velvet curtains, and sweaty bodies. An event where more than 100,000 sun-burnt souls find relief for their bass addiction.
