It's amazing how multiple exposures can transform two ordinary photographs into a magical one. Case in point, this little pony looking fancy in its flowery coat!
We all know how double exposures can create masterpieces if they are masterfully done. Well, this is another quirky example of the power of double exposures as community member candee2104 transformed this horse as a living, breathing work of art! Don’t you just love the flowers jutting out of anywhere in this photo? This photo was taken using a *Lomography Diana F+* loaded with Kodak Portra 160 VC film. You can see more photos from candee2104 in this album.
Congratulations to candee2104 for winning Photo of the Day!
So, how do you make a beautiful series of photographs? It’s simple – merge two already beautiful subjects like women and flowers the way photographer Lara Kiosses did with this amazing series of multiple exposure photographs.
Give anyone a blob of Play-Doh and you can be sure that he or she, whether a kid or an adult, would be able to transform it into something else - say, an animal figure or a type of food. In Eleanor Macnair's case, however, she makes one of the most excellent renderings of Play-Doh we've seen so far by using them to remake photographs!
Our community will never run out of ideas when it comes to doubles and film swaps. Case in point, this mind-boggling self-portrait that indeed screams how much he is into film photography. Congratulations to earlybird for having our Photo of the Day!
It's really amazing how simple plastic bricks can be assembled to create or, in this case, imitate works of art. Have a look at Veronica Watson's rendering of a famous Picasso painting using Legos after the cut!
Photographs with sprocket holes exposed are practically a dime a dozen these days but, of course, this wasn't the case more than 50 years ago. However, former freelance photographer Michael Ciavolino was already able to create one of the earliest examples of this technique back in the early '60s in his groundbreaking photograph called "Boat Ride, Rye Beach." Find out the fascinating story behind this photo, as well as how and why he did it in this exclusive Lomography feature!
The accidental exposure of the backing paper can give any photograph a retro feel. But having it in a cool black and white portrait, just like today's winning Photo of the Day by erikagrendel, will indeed make it a surefire hit.
Abandoned Scotland is an amazing group based in... you guessed it, Scotland! They stealthily get into little-known locations to photograph amazing but forgotten and empty spaces. We spoke with Alistair, the head of the group, and provided him with a Sprocket Rocket to see how the panoramic wonder would capture some of Scotland's urban landscapes.
Ever since light painting was invented, it inspired artists from all around the globe to magical creations that capture hidden movements and reinvent the world we live in. "Life is a fairy tale, stay wild little child!" is what they want to tell us. Bringing light to life became the next challenge for anyone rigged with a film camera and a creative mind.
Now, how can you take your analogue light paintings from the ordinary to the outstanding? After the carriage came the car, so we definitely need some spacy inventions to follow the old school light pen. So here it is, our new best friend: The Pixelstick!
Variety can always spice things up when it comes to artistry. See how photographer John Chervinsky jumps from one medium to another and explore the notions of variety in his series Studio Physics. More photos after the jump.
There's a lot that you can do with a Lomo LC-A+/Lomo LC-Wide and a Krab, besides the obvious (which is take it in the water with you). Get creative by trying various angles and perspectives; you'll be surprised how a slight tilt can make a dramatic difference to your photos. Take a look at the gallery below for some inspiration!
