Get your crafting supplies out and give your camera a makeover! Minifanfan joins Lomography in challenging you to come-up with either a camera customization such as Minifanfan has done or create your own splitzer, lens filter, or anything else to use to modify how your photos turnout. More details after the jump!
You may have seen the lovely Lomography KonstruktorTipster contributed by Minifanfan last week. The camera is the personification of “the Dreamer” which is what we all are, to some capacity.
Were you inspired by the photos of Castle Dream sitting on her bench? Have you already started on your own Lomography camera customization born out of a favourite dream of yours?
We want participants to hand-make something. We’d love to see you D-I-Y lens filters and splitzers and submit the photos that result. Also, you can enter your own customized camera creations. Just snap a photo of your the completed customization (or for extra points, share the link to your Tipster article in the comments) and submit as you would do a normal photo.
Reminiscent of traveling photographers of the 19th century, Giles Clement tours through the country with his assistant, Zeiss (an Irish Terrier), offering everything from portrait sessions to wildly creative photographic projects for magazines and companies. And although his mode of transportation may have evolved with the times, his photographic method and gear have changed very little compared to the photographers of days past. Now, with over 3 years of tintyping experience under his belt and an impressive list of clients, he's carved a name out for himself as an accomplished tintyper and continues to spread his passion for this ages-old technique everywhere he goes.
You want your subject be the center of attention? Petzval lens photos are recognizable for sharpness and crispness in the centre, strong color saturation, wonderful swirly bokeh effect, artful vignettes and narrow depth of field that will make your subjects stand out!
Autochrome was one of the first strides toward color photography. The combination of potato starch grains and silver bromide produces a cloudy cast that makes buildings like Villa Bonnier look even more intriguing.
Anna Hollond got her fist camera on her 10th birthday, and she hasn't stopped carrying a camera ever since. About a year ago, she sought to document her memories for her journal but didn't want to do so digitally, and got her first Lomography camera. Next thing she knew, she had a trove of instant cameras, as well as a knack for instant photography.
It's every aspiring photographer's dream: turn one's hobby into a career; quit the part-time job and instead get commissioned to work on your own photography projects. Kevin Biberbach, a student from Aachen in Germany, made it. As a result of EVRY DAY, a 365-day project that has attracted plenty of attention online, he has been working on a variety of assignments such as wedding shoots and family and couple pictorials.
