One thing that all Lomographers have in common is a ridiculous abundance of empty film canisters. Are you at a loss on what to do with them? Here's one thing you can try out!
One way to beat the summer heat is to always have popsicles ready in your fridge. No need to stock up on expensive ones though, as you can simply make plenty using your discard film canisters! The guys from Instructables did this little experiment. Try it out yourself!
Thing’s you’ll need:
Large masking tape
Your favorite juice!
1. Wash the canisters thoroughly with soap and water. Kodak has gone on record to say that the canister itself is not toxic, but you still have to wash it since you’re going to eat something from it.
2. Line up a strip of masking tape and carefully place the empty canisters
3. Carefully fill up the canisters with your beverage of choice
4. Wrap it with cling wrap, then insert the popsicle sticks.
5. Put them inside the freezer and wait in agony until they freeze
6. Eat and enjoy!
Have you ever tried going lens-less when taking a photo? Try shooting with ONDU Pinhole Cameras and see what it's like to take photos through a tiny pinhole. Check out these lovely shots taken by Lomographers; if you do have some ONDU pinhole photos of your own, upload and tag them accordingly so that we can see them!
What are your weekends like? Do you usually go on a date? Or perhaps you hang out with your family? Is playing video games on top of your weekend activities? I used to do those things. But it all changed since I met film photography. Find out more after the jump!
If you're like me who has a film lab at home, you'll know the feeling of having too much film rolls lying around the house. Instead of throwing them out, you can use them to decorate the way I fill our transparent coffee table with them!
We’re counting down to a new Lomographic product and have another visual clue to show you. What do these color switches have to do with what’s fast approaching? Take a look at the teaser and add your guess!
Granted, the two DIY editions of La Sardina are easy to customize: they simply get painted on or you decorated them with one of the dresses. With a little skill, this also works with the non-DIY-La Sardinas. Read on and I'll show you how to do it.
Have you ever seen those old optical toys they used in the 19th century to make out-of-this-world animated illustrations for kids and kids at heart? We haven't seen them in the flesh but it’s a good thing that Richard Balzer collects them and turns them into amazing GIFs for all the world to see.
For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.
Everybody loves a cup of tea to start the day. Meanwhile, we lomographers love to do little photo sessions to start our day. Both are really fun, but a wise person once said that we should try to combine two of our favorite things sometimes and see how it comes out. So, here we go!
