There are some stills from your favorite movies that are almost ingrained in your head and even the dialogue stuck with you that you had to research it. Double that experience with seamless animated movie GIFs woven by Tech Noir.
“The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou” GIF by Tech Noir
The Snippets and Vignettes series for me has become an eye opener to see artists and works that are relevant in our fast-clicking times. There are just so many creative minds out there whose portfolios of work need a quick view. One artist in mind is Tech Noir.
Inspired by the blog If We Don’t, Remember Me, Tech Noir creates GIFs that just go on and on. You’d have to peel your eyes to make sure you catch where the GIF begins and ends but it’s like each moment from the movie comes to life.
Being a movie fan myself, I can’t help but admire works like these especially if they feature some of my favorite movies. And when it comes to conflict and confrontation, those will surely make you clench your fists and grind your teeth in anticipation. Looking at those encounters make me shiver a bit when I think of it. And don’t even get me started on those iconic scenes, they’re a different story altogether.

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!
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.
Most, if not all, of the photographs in Keis Iguchi's LomoHome were printed using traditional darkroom processes. He likens film photography to using cassette tape and relies on his favorite combination of LC-A and Ferrania Solaris 800 in creating evocative images. In this interview, our Newcomer of the Week from Tokyo Japan shares more about his affinity for analog photography.
From the simple Vivitar 110 camera he received from his grandmother, Brett Wolff already accumulated close to almost a hundred cameras and accessories in his analog arsenal. Some of the cameras he treasured were even handed down by relatives and friends, making these more precious to him. Let's take a closer look at his camera collection.
