A little trick to make our pictures really unique, and original!
If you are an host in our house, maybe you would struggle to find the refrigerator: it is completely covered with magnets from all over the world with a lots of images that are memories of trips made by us or by our friends.
So … why not transform our travel photos (or our preferred ones) into magnets?
Empty cartridges of instax mini
Caps of plastic bottles, thick foam, or any other object to give thickness
First of all: you must insert the picture into the empty cartridge.
Then we put the layer of foam (or other material that create thickness) on the back of the cartridge, to hold the photo firm (I used two pieces of foam).
In this way you have created a frame for your snapshots.
To get a photo-magnet, just stick a magnet on the back of the cartridge. I used a drop of Super Glue, the magnet and …
THEWORK IS DONE!
This can be also used as an original gift to your friends. Good luck to all. See you all next tipster!
Photography is not only an act of documentation or communication, it is also a way of seeing the world. The camera opens our eyes and lets us see what lies behind the obvious, and we start looking at things as potential subjects of a photograph. Every leak of light unveils secrets that talented photographers turn into a piece of art. Li Hui is one of those gifted artists. We talked to her about her work and her sensitive photographs that picture a wonderful vulnerability.
Warm tones, subtle grains, beautiful moments of everyday life – the photos by Esben Bøg Jensen, a young and talented photographer from Denmark, let us escape into our memories and dream about a never-ending spring. We talked to the photographer himself and couldn’t help feeling a pleasant wave of joy overcoming us. Read on and get inspired to search for the moments that make us feel alive.
A lot happens in a day, made up of those little moments that we usually take for granted. So we asked some of our friends from the Lomography team to capture some instant photos throughout one day, using the Lomo'Instant Camera. The result? A collection of memories that they could catch, hold, and cherish forever. We compiled their instant moments into a cool video, which you can check out after the cut!
If this view looks too sweet to be true, it's because the gable houses, spindly bridges and docked boats are all miniature! Using Horizon Kompakt, one Lomographer turned the make-believe village of Babbacombe into a life-size vista.
Are you ready for an adrenaline rush? A little while ago, we teamed up with the snowboard and film-making collective Yougofirst and gave them a LomoKino and some film rolls to play with. After a season of crazy riding, jumps and tricks, they have finished their latest movie HETEROTOPIA which features footage shot with our 35mm movie-maker. We had the chance to catch up with Vid and Matic from the collective about the new movie and their experiences shooting analogue on the slopes. It's also our pleasure to showcase the movie here!
Making wet plate collodion images is an art in itself, yet Brett Henrikson takes things a little further and gives it his own unique touch to make it just a little more interesting (warning: some images might not be safe for work).
