One Man, One Camera, One Flower & 34 Days

23

Check out huge666's short stop motion video of a growing flower made with a Lomo LC-A+ and Wide Angle Lens!

I recently did a stop motion on my journey to the Lomography Gallery Store London. I thought why not do another one, so here it is… it’s called Growing, hope you enjoy =D

Lots of people have asked me why not just do it on digital? Save yourself some money while your at it, with a better result. I say NO! I don’t want it to look perfect with the exact same lighting in every frame. I want it to be different, I want it to not be another boring growing plant video…

    anyone who would ask you why you didnt shoot this digital is just not a lomographer. i wouldn't have done this any other way..im actually in the middle of shooting the growth of a vine for a stop-motion video..and all of my shots have inconsistent available lighting. a true artist..in my book..doesn't use digital auto exposure. using your skills to work with what your given is admirable. nice video!

    Useful Guidelines on Shooting with Ultra Wide Lenses

    Wide-angle lens are further divided into sub-classifications: Wide, ultra-wide and ultra-ultra-wide. Based on current standards, wide lenses for 35mm cameras are those with focal lengths ranging from 24 to 35mm. Lenses are considered ultra-wide if they have focal lengths from 17 to 21 mm, and ultra-ultra-wide if from 12 to 16mm. The New Russar+ is a 20mm lens; hence it falls under the ultra-wide classification. If you have an ultra-wide lens or if you intend to get the Russar+, you might as well make the most out of your precious investment. Read on for a few guidelines on shooting with ultra-wide lenses.
