Our fellow Lomographers never cease to amaze us with wonderful experiments when it comes to analogue photography. Case in point: these masterfully done shots from our own EBS masters from the community
Expose Both Side (EBS) shots are difficult to master but when you do, be prepared to receive a ton of likes and up comments from other community members. This technique is continuously being improved and mastered by our community members who just don’t tire of finding new ways to make Lomography such an exciting community. They make use of different Lomography films as their preferred tools of the trade – ranging from the versatile *Lomography Color Negative Films* to the outrageous *Lomography Color Slide Films*.
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!
When asked to recall the moment they first became truly interested in photography, most photographers would remember the magical feeling of picking up a hand-me-down or secondhand camera, the thrill of shooting an entire roll through, and the elation upon seeing and holding their first ever set of photographs. Caleb Savage, however, had quite a unique experience. At 10 years old, he had his first taste of working in the darkroom making prints at Boy Scout camp, thereby beginning a more than a decade-long affinity with photography.
