As we mature in our Lomographic lives, we forget about what it is like to be young and innocent. Remember when you didn't know what an aperture was? This is a short tutorial on some easy MX projects anyone can do.
Taking Multiple Exposures (MX) can be done many different ways. Each one can satisfy your lomoraphic desires. They can induce strange colors, scary emulsions, and surreal pictures. Drive deeper into lomography and see what results you can get.
What you will need
camera with B setting (like Lomography’s Diana Mini)
Film of any kind
Flash with color gels (Lomography’s Colorsplash Flash)
Shutter cable with a lock
Set up your location. The best MX pictures come out better on a dark background. Lighter colors show up more than darker ones. Set your camera on a tripod and hook up your shutter cable. Set the camera to B setting. Get your colorsplash flash and pick the colors you want to use for your picture. Turn the lights off and get the room completely dark. Find the shutter release cable and press it down and lock it in place. The shutter is now staying open. Stand in front of the camera, hold the flash out and point to toward yourself. Move to another area, turn the color wheel and splash yourself with another color of flash.
Or If you have a Lomo LC-A or a Diana Mini you can just keep triggering the shutter without winding the film. Usually more then 3 times over exposes the film but only your experimenting can tell you for sure.
Ever since light painting was invented, it inspired artists from all around the globe to magical creations that capture hidden movements and reinvent the world we live in. "Life is a fairy tale, stay wild little child!" is what they want to tell us. Bringing light to life became the next challenge for anyone rigged with a film camera and a creative mind.
Now, how can you take your analogue light paintings from the ordinary to the outstanding? After the carriage came the car, so we definitely need some spacy inventions to follow the old school light pen. So here it is, our new best friend: The Pixelstick!
There are things that artist Valeriie Liin can't leave the house without: her earphones, two notebooks, keys to her home in Taiwan, and a little color palette for painting. It's not always that she can paint, though, so for those times she turns to her cameras.

Singapore, like Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong, is a likely stopover when you fly far. The city is a tiny urbanized hub but it's very favorable if you know some high-spirited locals. I was lucky to hook up with king kimbo (@hakimbo), who showed me around. He took my lame limbs to the Gardens by the Bay, an amazing place which was visually striking. I was hugging some artificial trees there when I found a baby—a very big baby.
Ladies and gentlemen, for this rumble, we’ve joined forces with Australian MC/singer REMI Kolawole.
