Who says you can't shoot Lomos in the dark or that you can't grow wings? Everything is possible with a couple of lights and extended exposures times. Yes, it's time we had some fun with lightpainting! But first, here's the winners from our Luscious Lightpainting Rumble.
Ladies and gentlemen, you own the night! From the moment the sun sets to the wee-hours after midnight, Lomography’s night dwellers are moving in packs, silently but with purpose. Sorry to disappoint you Twilight fans, but no, they aren’t vampires – they’re merely insomniacs setting the stage for another lightpainting masterpiece! You saw some of the submissions and quite frankly, our nocturnal shooters have done a top notch job! Without further ado, here are the winners. Cheers!
Perhaps you’ve already had chance to try light painting, multiple exposures and long exposures with your Lomo’Instant, but what can you experiment with next? Well, that’s exactly the thought I had which led to giving this Tipster a go. I wanted to shoot Lomo’Instant photos which felt a bit “messier” than what I’m usually used to and to use a technique which would open up new possibilities with the kinds of images I could create with my favorite instant camera. Well, here I go!
Today’s featured member, Herbert, gives the impression that he is interested in people as much as he loves cameras—and he has many vintage treasures. Even a casual snapshot of his has a story that suggests curiosity about the people he photographs.
He will respectfully ask for a photo session. He does not outline why, and if you are shy, you will wonder what he has seen in you. He greets reluctance with understanding and a resounding yes with an equal amount of enthusiasm. When the day comes, he will treat you like a collaborator. And whenever he talks about the outcome—comely photos of what looks like your most confident self—he will always call you a muse.
