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!
From February to July, I experienced one the happiest times of my life: I lived in China. I lived in Suzhou, Jiangsu, one of the most beautiful cities in the world. So here's some advice directly from me to you—what to do in Suzhou?
You want your subject be the center of attention? Petzval lens photos are recognizable for sharpness and crispness in the centre, strong color saturation, wonderful swirly bokeh effect, artful vignettes and narrow depth of field that will make your subjects stand out!
Natalie Wells is one of the original UK Lomography community members who can always be seen at our events, workshops and parties. She recently took the new Petzval 58 Bokeh Control Lens for a test drive around London.
