One day I had the idea to make color gradients with my computer and picture editing program and some other stuff to give my pictures a touch of color. You can also do it analogue style with rainbow paper!
At first I generated different color gradients and shot them on my monitor. I shot a complete roll and rewound them back in so I can shoot with them using my other cameras. But they lied a long time in a box and are still waiting to be used.
Fortunately, I saved the gradients on my computer because I underexposed a DIY redscale film with closeups using my Belair. I invested some time to measure the film for the shots so I really wanted to get great results. Then I had the idea to do a second exposure on the normal side with the gradients. During the process, I was worried what the results will look like. But luckily for me, it turned out alright! Here are my results:
I was so happy about the pictures that I repeated the process immediately. I loaded a roll in my Belair and shot gradients on the normal side of the film. I did the process again and did a redscale film using the Belair. Here are the results:
Because I like the photos, I did another using my Horizon camera. I thought that with this dismal weather, a little bit of color could be nice and just look at what great pictures I got with it:
I think it looks like a light leak on some photos and I simply love it! Surely I’ll do this again. The next time will be with the LC-Wide and the half frame setting so i don’t have the “bar” on the pictures. I already have one roll prepared to be shot in dreary weather!
I like to make and use masks with my Lomo'Instant camera, but sometimes they are too dominant. In coming up with more subtle masks, I found several that produced an interesting, distressed look, especially when paired with the camera flash and color gel strips. They're especially good for creating Halloween-themed photos.
This article is dedicated to one of the finest British sport photographers, Monte Fresco. In his 30 years of reportage for the Daily Mirror, he took some of the most iconic photographs in sporting history. He covered football, tennis, and boxing. But it is his ice skating pictures that I am most fascinated with. Using my own lens, I give him a modern tribute.

On the last Saturday of July, the old district of Borgo Vico hosted an art and music festival. There was also a graffiti contest, and the winner will exhibit his work at the Como Business Center for Expo 2015. I used my Zorki 4 loaded with an Ilford FP4+ film to document the event. I focused on the young artists who, amid the swirl of activity, had to concentrate on their large-scale pieces.

Some people say instant photos bring about a feeling of nostalgia. Although I often use the Lomo'Instant Camera with different crazy accessories such as the Splitzer and color gels, I have to agree there is something about it — dreamy vignettes maybe? — that always makes me want to go back in time and experience it all over again. In the name of analogue photography and good old memories, we passed by some classic spots in Vienna and took one shot after the other. Take a closer look at our gallery.
