Ever tried just closing your eyes and feeling the music seep into you? This week’s list of songs will surely get you feeling the tension and the deep ambience of classic battles. So put your headphones on right now and brace yourself for a new kind of listening experience.
We’ve featured a lot of songs and artists here on PYHOF. From guitar swishing rock heroes to the synth tinged music of alternative rock bands, the music trip still isn’t quite complete yet. This time around, we’ll bring you into a world that maybe you’ve read or heard about. Enter the world of the first expeditions and their contact with the new world.
Brought to my attention by plasticpopsicle (a big thank you to her, by the way) this series of songs by E.S. Posthumus, Vangelis and John Williams and other artists just takes you on a voyage with your ears and imagination. It’s like being in the thick of battle between the early conquerors of the world and the natives. Ringing with classical music and a booming audio quality, this series packs quite a punch and a listening experience to boot. Musical scores are amazing but this mix of spikes and drops in music and the emotions they bring out are something else. Coming from entirely different movies and themes, these songs form a tightly cohesive theme when put together.
Try closing your eyes and just listen to the music. Emotions will set in and let your imagination take you into a world long gone. I listened to this series and it just made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. I was in awe. It is both chilling and exciting to listen to. The delicate combination of the different instruments and the rhythm intertwine and separate into different phases to evoke different emotions and images. It’s just a musical ride on its own. Be ready to get the chills, don’t say we didn’t warn you.

Before moving to New York City, I was told that people keep to themselves. Thus, I set forth to put myself out there and create connections with the people in my community, using the Lomo'Instant as an icebreaker! I was proven wrong—if you show an ounce of kindness to anyone, they will overflow in return.

The new Petzval Lens has proven itself a master of close-up shots and soulful portraits time and time again. Now some of our talented community members have stepped it up a notch and aimed the Petzval at city-scapes. From snow-capped pedestrians, couples chatting in parks, bustling markets, or people waiting to get on the metro - the beautiful banalities of city life are covered in these eloquent shots. Scroll through this gallery we've put together just for you to get a taste of the Petzval's urban potential!
Unfortunately, it happens sometimes that your resulting pictures are not what you expected - the image doesn't look that good, the colors are bland, and the subject is banal. Indeed, it couldn't be picture of the year! Herein I propose a second chance for your pictures by modifying your 35mm negatives. Just pick up some ideas from here, experiment, and scan your negatives with the Lomography Smartphone Scanner. Anything is possible: burning, scratching, putting on hydrochloric acid, balsamic vinegar, nail polish, bleach, or raspberry juice... use your imagination and write down your new film soup recipe! You can find a sample of the effects in this article.
Perhaps you’ve already had chance to try light painting, multiple exposures and long exposures with your Lomo’Instant, but what can you experiment with next? Well, that’s exactly the thought I had which led to giving this Tipster a go. I wanted to shoot Lomo’Instant photos which felt a bit “messier” than what I’m usually used to and to use a technique which would open up new possibilities with the kinds of images I could create with my favorite instant camera. Well, here I go!

The best thing about working for Lomography is having first access to new products. Imagine everyone's excitement when the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Art Lens 2.8/32M was delivered to the headquarters in Vienna, where members of the Lomography team took turns testing this tiny yet powerful optic on various cameras. Meanwhile, Tom Bates from Marketing teased out the idyllic and colorful possibilities of shooting with the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 lens on a trip to the UK countryside.
