A second collaboration between me and juznobsrvr led to an intensely-coloured flower power fest "invading" London and Chino Hills. Look at what we came up with!
This is our second go at doubles. Our first go yielded really amazing results although some of the shots were a little underexposed leaving more spicy singles than dynamic duos…
This time juznobsrvr suggested we try something a little different and focus on flowers. With the sunnier weather on the way and London parks in Spring bloom this was a fantastic idea. I am absolutely astounded by the results. juznobsrvr used a Lensbaby Muse plastic optics at f2 mounted on canon rebel 2000 and I used a Holga GCFN 35mm mod (toilet paper and selotape) along with the Holga filter set and fisheye adapter.
I am so, so pleased with the results and could never have imagined some of the combinations we would come up with! I love doubles – makes the analogue experience just that much more exciting.
stezmaric & juznobsrvr – “it was fun, inspiring and edifying” – I look forward to our next adventure!
As the week came to an end, we bid farewell to Photokina 2014. Lomography participated with patchwork photo flooring and an endless array of products that impressed spectators. Take a look at our one-of-a-kind booth and its last day of glory at the this year's trade show spectacle in Cologne, Germany.
Unfortunately, it happens sometimes that your resulting pictures are not what you expected - the image doesn't look that good, the colors are bland, and the subject is banal. Indeed, it couldn't be picture of the year! Herein I propose a second chance for your pictures by modifying your 35mm negatives. Just pick up some ideas from here, experiment, and scan your negatives with the Lomography Smartphone Scanner. Anything is possible: burning, scratching, putting on hydrochloric acid, balsamic vinegar, nail polish, bleach, or raspberry juice... use your imagination and write down your new film soup recipe! You can find a sample of the effects in this article.
On April 11, Lomography UK will be celebrating Film Photography Day in style. We will be running a Konstruktor workshop and our very first LC-A 120 workshop. We will also be launching a brand new exhibit by our community members. There will be prizes, free drinks, and a camera piñata, too!
