Summer Photography: De-Colorize the Summer!

4

It’s summer now! Summer is all about blue sky, white clouds, colorful bikinis, tan skin, and wonderful colors. But how about we de-colorize all of this?

The sun is hot and bright during summer. It’s good for Lomographers to capture a lot of wonderful photos. The most popular photos amongst Lomographers are blue skies with white clouds. Everybody just loves the combination, and I am one of them. But sometimes, I would like to de-colorize it. So, black and white film and Redscale film are my choice to achieve this.

Lomography Redscale 100 and Redscale XR could turn everything into red. The blue sky, blue sea, green trees, white sand, all those wonderful colors, turned into red, white and black. The outcome was great while shooting under the hot sun. Especially when the sky is in red color, the view is unique.

The other way to de-colorize photos is by shooting in black and white. When you shoot in B&W, the blue sky will show in grey, maybe a very light grey. But the other objects become more obvious and sharp. The light grey sky becomes a very good background for other objects.

Summer is all about sunshine with color. We see all the colors with our eyes. But we can give the summer another view with redscale and B&W. We could have a different summer in the photos.

    Wonderful article! Summertime is great for getting rolls and rolls of wonderfully high contrast monochromatic photos.

    Lomo LC-A 120: Quirky Doors

    In photography, we notice the surface first. The color and texture of things help us imagine what’s beneath. Doors, part of a building’s skin, have this appeal. They suggest how long a structure has been around and what sort of fellows live inside. They are details that fascinate Lomographers, judging from the many LC-A 120 snaps of intriguing entrances.

    The 2015 UEFA Champions League Final will be held at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin on June 6. It is a place full of history and is also the only football stadium with a blue track course. Some say it is the most beautiful stadium in the world, and I totally agree with them. But then agai,n I might be biased because it is the home court of my favorite team, Hertha BSC Berlin—my blue-white bloodline.
