Great film for retro-like pics. Nice skin tones and soft colours.
I really needed to have a whole box of this film without knowing whether i would like it or not. Praised by the Lomography community as the greatest film producing company, Agfa tempted me to give this a shot.
No surprise. I love this film for its skin tones, its soft colors that seems to come closest to how I see through my own eyes. Haven’t tried to many portrait shots with it but I am sure it would be great if used with the right camera. Another limitation, don’t do too many doubles with it because the background will nearly fade.
I think there are better ones to use this treasure with than the Holga, due to lighting and the Holga’s lack of flexibility. You really need very bright sunny days but then you get an awfully beautiful blue sky and visionary browns and skin tones. They are still quite easy to get, so don’t hold off….
Classy, moody photographs in monochrome and with fine grain - what more could you ask for from one of Lomography's very own black and white emulsion for standard 35mm cameras, the Earl Grey? Find out how this film fared among six of our community members in this Reviews on Rewind installment!
Back in the 1990s, Gilbert Blecken was a big music fan and wrote for his own small music fanzine. He would interview bands in between sound checks and take photographs of them. He was never a professional photographer or worked for a company; he simply did it for his fanzine. Twenty years on, Gilbert’s photographs have matured into an amazing documentation of some of the biggest music icons of that era. We caught up with Gilbert to ask him about these photographs and the fascinating story behind them.

A few months ago, Lomography made available a whole range of pinhole cameras made out of premium wood. Interested on knowing how good they are, I brought the medium format one on my last trip to Germany.
Photos shot with a New Petzval lens are immediately recognizable for their super-sharp focus areas and wonderful swirly bokeh effect. Each New Petzval lens is crafted from brass (just like the original Petzval lens) and features premium glass optics. Together with Lomography, the lenses have been designed and constructed by a team of optics specialists at the Zenit factory in Russia. Zenit are master lens manufacturers and have the skill to build the Petzval lens for use with today’s SLR cameras.
As a professional photography graduate, Fernando never goes out without carrying at least one camera and treats it as an integral part of his body. Although he uses both digital and analog gears, he still regards using film as a more intimate way of creating images. Let's all welcome our newcomer from Brazil, Fernando Monteiro.
