So, do you like that low light shooting with nice glowing exposures? If like me you don't have the Fuji Natura Classica, there is a way to get this look, so long as your camera has auto-exposure like the LC-A+ for instance.
I’ve been thinking to get a Natura for some time, but for one reason or another it hasn’t worked out yet. However, I think I’ve found a way to get those nice night or low light exposures (hand held) with my LCA+ and also my Canon A1 Underwater. At first I was always disappointed with the fuji Superia 1600iso colour neg film, my night shots always came out too dark. So, I figured I should just trick the meter/auto-exposure by dialing down the iso by a stop or 2. In fact I found using the Fuji 1600 with the iso set on 400iso has been the best results. Mind you the shots are a bit grainy, so trying the Natura film in this way should give even better results, but I didn’t try that yet, I’ve been quite happy with the Fuji Superia 1600iso, well it is more economical too.
With the Canon A1, I taped a small strip of ND (neutral density) filter over the exposure sensor which is just near the viewfinder, 2 stop ND filter for night shots which is the same as using 1600iso but rated at 400iso. It has to be this way as the camera has dx sensing of the film speed inside the camera.
Twilight shots came out really good, with lovely deep blue sky colour :))
Don't be afraid of taking photos indoors or under low-light conditions. As long as there's light around us, the camera will be ready to shoot. Here's a tipster for you. Just remember to catch the lights!
Capture the world and all its contours in vibrant, wide-angled photographs any time, any where! The LC-A 120 is an adventure of its own with lots of exciting functions to experiment with, like seamless long exposures or full ISO control.

You are free to use any 120 Film you want and there are plenty to choose from. In fact, that's what makes this camera so versatile! Scroll through this gallery for a little taste of the glorious shots this nifty invention is capable of.
If you'd be shooting in low light, at night, or in any other situation that would require a high speed film for best results, why don't you try the Lomography Color Negative 800 for 35mm cameras?

There are so many exciting things you can do with the Lomo'Instant camera, it's hard to know where to start! We've been giving this lovable Lomo camera the full test drive so that you can experience its full potential in an instant! Here are some top tips on shooting very long exposures in dark places.
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!
There's nothing more satisfying than taking fantastic photos with a camera that you built yourself. If you've always wanted to impress your friends with your mad DIY skills, pick up a Konstruktor Camera Kit and show them what you've got! It's also a cool way to get them into Lomography, because as you build the camera you'll discover how analogue photography works. Oh, and the Konstruktor takes gorgeous photos, too - check out the gallery and see what we mean!
Really want to bring your film photos to life? We’re now offering totally analogue fine art prints in a host of large sizes and formats! Carefully enlarged from your negatives onto premium photographic paper by lab professionals, each picture is a unique piece of craftsmanship.
If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!
Today is Pola-Day - the international day of instant photography! And what could be more appropriate than a competition to honor this special day? Grab your favorite instant camera and join the celebration.
