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!

On a trip to Paris he fell in love with analog photography and the magic of film has been fascinating to him since then. But he also appreciates the benefits of digital photography. For Lomography he tested the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Art Lens on his Fuji X-Pro 1 camera. Check out Martin's photos and learn more about the founder of the popular Neoprime magazine.
