Let Go, You're Too Old!

10

Ever wonder how cool it will be to be able to see through the innocent eyes of a child? Give them a camera instead of a lollipop.

I loaded my Lomo LC-A+ RL with a roll of film and let my 3 year old boy play with it every time he comes into my study room. I was sure the results will be pretty cute and adheres to most of the Lomographic rules.

I helped him with the MX button to prevent some 200 exposures in a single frame and also had the Colorsplash on. Taught him how to change the colors on the Colorsplash flash and that creates not only more fun for the boy … but also ensures more wild colored photos in the end.

There are a few things to NOT teach the child if he/she is too young. First is the MX button … and next is the rewinding. This will prevent film wastage.

    Light is Magical: A Talk With Li Hui

    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.
