What some of you might not know is that there is a brilliant part of the Tunnel Vision Lens that lets you (following the golden rule) to get as close as possible!
The macro- lens is part of the Tunnel Vision Lens, that means you have to unscrew the tunnel vision part and only add the small lens (with the tiny little word “macro” on it) to your camera. Oh yes, your camera. It is not only working with the LC-A, but it also works with every camera! The small metal self sticking rings fit on (e.g. Holga,Holga135 and I even tried it (without gluing the ring on it!!!) with my Lubitel). The ring of the lens is magnetic, so you really need the small rings on your camera! Even though LC-A is fully metal and the magnet is strong, PLEASE hold the lens if you haven’t added the ring, otherwise your lens might fall down! Pay attention on that!
When you added your lens, get close (approximately two or three cm) and shoot. Use the smallest distance if you can change it on your camera (LC-A 0,8 m). A good combination is the Ringflash, so you will have lots of additional light, but the opening is too small, so you have to use it without the camera- frame (for LC-A).
"Take your camera wherever you go" is one of Lomography's golden rules that she religiously follows. Her lomographs shows her dedication to documenting even the most mundane moments of her life through beautiful photographs. Meet our newcomer of the week from United Kingdom, Breech!
If you visit London in the next few weeks,you might bump into a Paddington Bear sculpture more than once. Don't be alarmed, he's not following you around. There are hundreds of Paddington Bear sculptures dotted around the city in celebration of the launch of a new film. We captured a few using the glorious Petzval lens. Take a look here.
It might not look like it, but the Diana Baby 110 is definitely more than it lets on. For example, did you know that you can alternate using 12mm and 24mm lenses with it? Find out how in this tutorial!
Every lomographer is aware of the Ten Golden Rules, the very essence of our “Don't Think, Just Shoot” philosophy. This set of guidelines tells us to throw away our inhibitions as photogarphers and have fun while taking pictures. Many of us take these rules by heart, but maybe not all of us take them as seriously as our community member pedrosattin, who has made these rules the focus of his personal project.
You want your subject be the center of attention? Petzval lens 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!
Have you ever wondered what would happen when a Petzval is paired with a close up lens? Wonder no longer — a match made in heaven! We got up close and personal with the Petzval and think the results speak for themselves — but get in there and have a look for yourself!
Not knowing exactly how to do deal with its odd appearance, Nadica first regarded the Lubitel 166B as a complete monstrosity. She left it untouched on her shelf for months after receiving it as a gift. After using other Lomo cameras and getting familiar with the rules on exposure, she finally had the courage to test it. Find out what made stacy_mcpommes fall in love with the Lubitel 166B in this installment of Weapon of Choice!
I don't care if this film has been reviewed a zillion times, that it has already been discontinued, or that there might be a Japanese version of it. The Agfa CT Precisa that I know gives me the blues. Oh, yes - not a Chelsea FC fan, but this film is all about the color blue. Say hello to the blues!
Clowns were perhaps part of the worst nightmares of our childhood. Those red lips that carried a sinister smile haunted us; what you may not be aware of is that those lips can also devour a whole carnival!
I don’t like to split. A split means distance, separation, it means categorical divergence. We split hairs, we split incomes, we split up. So the first thing we have to know here is that a Splitzer – different from what you might have thought - is not at all a nasty boy splitting things up.
He joined the Community not only for the crazy photographs but also for the creative and informative tipsters. In fact, one of his goals is to try out as many tipsters as he can. Let's get to know our Newcomer of the Week from Leipzig, Germany, elimpacto!
