Cuando vas por primera vez a Amsterdam crees que todo es mentira, que es un parque temático. Pero cómo te vas a creer esa locura. Los edificios deformándose según pasas, millones de bicicletas personalizadas sobrepasándote por delante y por detrás, tranvías esquizoides, turistas volcánicos, escaparates de neón entre canales, carne a precio de oro, meaderos masculinos en plena calle y encima me dicen que esa ciudad está ganada al mar, pero acaso va a resultar que los holandeses son más listos que la Naturaleza… y encima, ¿marihuana?. Lo dicho, una locura, pero ¿qué tendrá ese desequilibrio tan equilibrado que engancha?. Tantos rincones mágicos y tantas ventanas sin cortinas te hacen sentir en otro Mundo.
Sin darme cuenta me volví a enamorar y aquí muestro el porqué.
I am a New York-based multimedia artist trying to discover a connection between sound and horticulture. In this article, I explore a multi-generational permaculture farm in Orcas Island, Washington, USA.
I was really excited when I got to test the Lomo'Instant Wide recently. Nine packs of film and and one week later I can say: "This camera works really well and I am looking forward to my own Portobello Road Edition!"
"Here I am looking for desolation and blight and abandonment, and I find life," says National Geographic contributor Wayne Lawrence. For him, photography is more than just looking. It is about people and their stories.
Sometime between 6,000 and 10,000 years ago, a boy in northern Afghanistan was born with a gene mutation that hindered his eyes from producing melanin and thus from turning brown. He had blue eyes. If you see someone with blue eyes today, he is a descendant of this unlucky fellow. I am one of those weird folks and apart from feeling like a mutant and being Angelina Jolie’s secret sister, I am sensitive to light like an ISO 6,400 film.
Are you annoyed by Newton's rings that appear when you're scanning your Lomo'Instant shots? I am, so I came up with the idea to create something to ensure that the photos don't touch the glass, but aren't too far away from it either because of the sharpness.
This article is dedicated to one of the finest British sport photographers, Monte Fresco. In his 30 years of reportage for the Daily Mirror, he took some of the most iconic photographs in sporting history. He covered football, tennis, and boxing. But it is his ice skating pictures that I am most fascinated with. Using my own lens, I give him a modern tribute.
Though I am not a professional, photography is in my genes. My father was a photographer and technician in the Air Force and accumulated a number of cameras during his life. This is a story about one of those cameras, a Yashica 635 TLR. I brought the camera—after being in storage for about 55 years—back to life with a roll of Portra 160 during the golden hour at Bellevue Botanical Gardens in Washington.
I am Nick Page, a Hertford-based graphic designer. I do analog photography as an alternative to the pixel-perfect images I encounter every day. In this article, I'll tell you about my film swap technique for the solo film photographer.
It's late October in Copenhagen and summer was well and truly behind us. With the nights drawing in, the chances of going out with one of my cameras was slim. All was not lost at this time of year, however, as it allowed me time to focus on my own personal music projects—I am a professional composer/musician and audio engineer at my own studio by day.
Using my Canon EOS 20D, I already discovered the amazing bokeh effect of the Petzval Lens. So I was really excited to try it with my favorite digital hybrid camera, Olympus OM-D E-M5. Just attach an adaptor and off you go!
This article is a tribute to the great Portuguese film director Manoel de Oliveira, who died last April 2. With an old Praktica loaded with a roll of black and white film, I captured so enthusiastically his city Oporto (Porto) with its famous Ribeira district, the most characteristic of the Lusitanian town. It was here that more than 70 years ago, Manoel De Oliveira created a timeless masterpiece: "Aniki-Bòbò"!
