A sleepy town down south boasts of the biggest christian church in the Philippines and the token Jose Rizal statue which methinks you see on every old town anyway.
Old houses, old churches, old roads, old park, old schools. but a new sight for me. working in a advertising agency sure has some perks when traveling free – we had a shoot here! 3 hours from manila, you traverse through long highways and foggy hills to get to Taal, Batangas. it was hot and my lomo, Lenin has just eaten a yummy slide and was ready to shoot. the Basilica De San martin De tours still stands, the emblem of pinoys strong christian ways. and it wasn’t kidding when it claimed it was the biggest. man, it was huge! but inside the church halls where it was once decked with huge figures of saints are now just hallowed nooks. the old “Santos” were gone. they were either looted during the war or the eruption of taal volcano or taken cared by the families around town. today, it is now a heritage site and it is know as the “Barong Tagalog” and “balisong” capital of the Philippines.
Did you ever think about the myth that we actually dream in Black & White? No colors, maybe no truth behind it anyways. But we know for a fact that you can create the most dreamy photographs with an analogue camera. And for that you need the right film. Scroll down and find out which B&W film is the film of your dreams!
Did you catch the solar eclipse that happened recently? Word on the street is that it even resulted in a total eclipse in some areas of Europe, making it a pretty rare occasion for the folks that got to see it! We're guessing that some of you even had your cameras to catch the whole shebang on film — which is why we're throwing a competition for the best eclipse and sun inspired shots out there. Come on in and check out the details!
There are small pleasures and big pleasures. A small one, like eating a chocolate after lunch, the first day of summer after a cold spring or finally meeting that girl you see every day on your morning commute can be more satisfying than anything else. As for me, shooting live music shows with the Petzval Lens is one of those small pleasures.
Hi, everyone! I'd like to share with you my 2014 summary on analogue photography. Some things I did were completely new, while some were my good old habits. This year I learned how to develop black and white film, which I consider my greatest milestone. But the most important thing is that in 2014, I remain in love with Lomography! And the rest? Well, let's see...
Lassi, one of our awesome Petzval Lens Kickstarter backers, came to visit us at Lomography HQ this week. We had a brilliant time introducing him to the Lomography team, showing him some of the Vienna sights and generally having fun. As part of the trip, we organized a special photo-shoot in which we took photos with a vintage Petzval lens on a Sinar P2 4x5 camera. Head past the jump to find out more about the great time we had with Lassi and to see some old-school Petzval shots!
