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.
Budding photographers are everywhere, but not everyone can excel in the craft using both analogue and digital mediums. When you look at Alex Luyckx’s body of work, however, you realize that there masterfully skilled and gifted people out there who can shoot staggering regardless of what camera or what medium there is. And if that wasn't fascinating enough, this talented gentleman with an obvious devotion for film also develops and prints his own images.
As a professional photography graduate, Fernando never goes out without carrying at least one camera and treats it as an integral part of his body. Although he uses both digital and analog gears, he still regards using film as a more intimate way of creating images. Let's all welcome our newcomer from Brazil, Fernando Monteiro.
Coinciding with the relaunch of the Lomography community website is the debut of one of the Magazine's newest series, Meet the Innovators. Here, we'll be talking to some of the game changers in the field of photography to get a closer look on what they do as well as find out their personal insights. For our opening salvo we proudly introduce Cat Ong, Lomography's very own Head of Optic Product Development who counts the research and development of the LC-A family, Russar and Petzval Art Lenses, Diana F+, and Lomo'Instant, among many others, as some of his projects.
