Photo of the Day by elvismartinezsmith

Elvismartinezsmith got the decisive moment right when he took this photo.

The red-orange hue brought about by cross processing adds character to this photograph, and the boat gives the image an element separate from the lake, but if elvismartinezsmith hadn’t pressed the shutter just as the pole was lifted, this photo wouldn’t be quite as impressive. The rower’s movement prevented the photo from being static. It lends a story, a different dimension, to the image.

The photo was taken in Agbodrafo lake in Togo using a Canon EOS Series camera loaded with Fuji Velvia 100F film. If you want to see more of elvismartinezsmith’s scenic Travel photos, check out this album.

Congratulations, *elvismartinezsmith!* That is one prize-winning shot.

    thanks!! A romantic rendez vous between two new lovers on the lake Togo. I love the way they keep their distance to each other, it tells a lot.

    LomoChrome Purple 120 and 35mm: Expect the Radical!

    I was given a roll of LomoChrome Purple 120 by a friend who was keen for me to try it out since he didn't have a medium format camera. I really didn't expect the results I got when I took it out for a test run on a bright winter's day in London.

    Seeking the Elusive 'Decisive Moment' in Foreign Cities

    Some of the photos I took during my trips to Penang and Singapore may pass as street photography, but to be honest, they were more like my feeble attempts to capture 'decisive moments' that I don't usually find at home.

    On-Time Rumble: Show Us Your Perfect Timing

    There is nothing than a photo shot at the perfect moment. Henri Cartier Bresson's principle on "The Decisive Moment" is a principle that we should still follow to this day. A perfectly-timed photo creates impact, whether it's one of a friend jumping into the pool or a couple emerging from the ceremony on their wedding day. For this rumble, we want to see that breathtaking moment, shot at the perfect time.

    Recently, we’ve been digging through all our LC-A 120 negatives from when we first started testing the new camera. During this search, we had our very own finding Vivian Maier moment when we unearthed a bunch of photos shot by the super-talented dopic whilst he was on vacation in Japan last year. We totally love these shots and couldn’t resist sharing them with you!
