Train and Tracks in Film

24

Running hundreds of kilometers per hour, train rides can be both exciting and boring. For every train ride depends on the traveler and the moment he/she experiences during it.

And when the train is just too long for us to wait, we Lomographers take the chance to capture something beautiful out of that train station, that fast track ride, or that mundane waiting. That’s why in this week’s gallery post, we have decided to compile 50 lovely Lomographs of our “train lives.” It’s a lovely mix of nostalgia and the want to travel! Enjoy!

Credits: ohlordy, disdis, af-capture, hodachrome, ck_berlin, anjinho, nebulasixty, blackbyrd, marc1701, erikagrendel, furn7973, motagirl2, lawypop, 400-asa, gionnired, gunship, nadinadu, spidey27, litleandi, dogma, _haustor, jw77, chippo, walasiteodito, shalimahsm, scorpie, itisanormalname, reneg88, mephisto19, star-pixie, zeewierkoekje, albertosimoncini, satomi, bccbarbosa, rotte, riotxriot, vicuna, lomomowlem, vgzalez & yokekei

    Journey to the Ends of the Earth: From the Arctic to Antarctica

    Very few of even the most intrepid travelers get to set sail to the Arctic and the Antarctic. A lomographer known to the Community as stouf, however, was able to set foot on both polar regions. While the rare opportunity to visit these uncommon destinations came in parcel with his profession, he did not forget to bring along his trusty cameras and favorite film to capture scenes from the expeditions.

    Angela Izzo on Shooting with the Diana Mini, Photographing Musicians, and Then Some

    While many of us can only dream of working with musicians and photographing them, Angela Izzo's job entails exactly that. Apparently, this is a fulfillment of her own dream that she had when she was younger. In this interview, Izzo talks about her beginnings which, of course, included going to as many shows and festivals as she possibly can; some of her most memorable on-the-job-experiences with the likes of The Doors, Lykke Li, Jack White, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and Chris Robinson Brotherhood; her inspirations and other interests; and her love for film photography and Diana Mini. And to those looking into fulfilling their own dreams of working in the same industry, Izzo also shares helpful advice based on her own experiences.

    I am a Mad Analogue Scientist: New Experiments with 35mm Films and Chemicals

    Unfortunately, it happens sometimes that your resulting pictures are not what you expected - the image doesn't look that good, the colors are bland, and the subject is banal. Indeed, it couldn't be picture of the year! Herein I propose a second chance for your pictures by modifying your 35mm negatives. Just pick up some ideas from here, experiment, and scan your negatives with the Lomography Smartphone Scanner. Anything is possible: burning, scratching, putting on hydrochloric acid, balsamic vinegar, nail polish, bleach, or raspberry juice... use your imagination and write down your new film soup recipe! You can find a sample of the effects in this article.
