While we all love the unpredictability that comes with Lomography, sometimes blurry photos just plain suck. Here's something to help avoid those in the future!
If you’ve read enough photography books, you’ve probably come across the saying that aside from your camera, your next most important investment is a tripod. Personally, I’ve found this to be true, as having a tripod has given me the option to take long exposure photos that I wouldn’t have otherwise been able to.
But let’s face it. Lugging a tripod along with on a LomoWalk is such a chore! But what can you do?
Instructables has detailed a handy Tipster on how to make a DIY monopod to help with your photography. While this won’t help much with really long exposures, it’ll be more than enough for those slow shutterspeeds we need right after the sun has set.
What you’ll need:
A steel hook with a nut that can go with your camera’s tripod thread
A long piece of string
After assembling it, here’s what you need to do (you can refer to the photo as well):
Attach the DIY monopod to your camera
Put your camera at eye level and let the string dangle
Loop the string on your shoe and get the other end
Pull the string to make sure everything is nice and tight, and shoot!

This new Petzval lens is a revival of a lens that was created in the 19th century. The optics has come to life again with the help of a crowdfunding website and all the backers that have supported this project. The production is done by one of Russia’s lens companies – Zenit. We lent out our prototype Petzval lens to DC Watch, one of the largest digital camera online magazines in Japan. Check out their results after the jump.
