I recently had the perfect day in an exciting place in Vienna. The "Alberner Hafen", situated in the outskirts of Vienna, was the ideal location for my first experiences with the Diana F+. Interested in what sites I saw with my little plastic friend? Read on!
A bright blue sky above Vienna and a new camera in my bag – what does one’s heart desire more?
From friends I heard that “Alberner Hafen” offers several interesting places to shoot some photos. So I got in my car and drove to the other side of the city towards my first adventures in the world of Lomography.
The “Alberner Hafen” was built in 1939 and is the third most important trade port only after the port of “Lobau” and the port of “Freudenau”. Due to its five corn silos it is also know as the Viennese corn-port.
I was there on a Saturday afternoon, a day on which only very few Viennese people and certainly no workers can be found around the area. In a short time I already found two beautiful, rusty cars only to be the victims of my very first shots with the Diana F+. The old silos and containers as well as the Danube-arm suited perfectly well as backgrounds on this day.
One and a half hours of curious searching for places and secrets that the port has to offer got me not only some interesting views on an other, unknown part of Vienna, but also several photographs of which I (and hopefully others too) was positively surprised.
The “Friedhof der Namenslosen” (Cemetery of the nameless) and the correspondent restaurant on the area of “Alberner Hafen” is also worth seeing.
It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.
Her interest in photography started when she saw a shop in Vienna selling cameras with her name "Diana" printed all over. She then applied as an intern in Lomography Germany where she had a great time getting on the analogue grind. Let's all give our cheerful and perky Newcomer of the Week, analogeanstalten, a warm welcoming hug!
Our friends over in Korea recently had the opportunity to experiment with the ever-impressive LC-A 120. With Autumn in full bloom, the results were breathtakingly beautiful! We couldn't think of a better way to usher in the new season than with a fantastic gallery full of warm autumn colors.
I'm Nick Page, a graphic designer based in the UK. After 20 years of working in advertising, I returned to film photography five years ago and found that the analogue life was just what I needed to get away from the "pixel perfect" images I deal with every day in my job.
As you may have read in my previous article, I truly fell in love with Lomography when I combined my Fisheye camera with an old Canon AE-1 for magical photographic results. Last summer, I took so many pictures of flowers that it started to become almost boring for me. My waning interest and the coming winter meant that I had to figure out something else to do with my 35mm film.
Exactly seven years ago, I bought this camera from Indonesia's local Lomography community. I remember having some savings in my bank account and just spending it all on this camera. At that time, I browsed the microsite for the Lomography Fisheye No.2 and immediately fell in love with it! Coincidentally, my friend who introduced me to Lomography just bought this same camera for his birthday. My life has changed ever since I had the Fisheye, my first lomographic camera.
I recently had the opportunity to take the world’s most creative instant camera — the Lomo'Instant — for a stroll on an unusually warm and sunny November day. My goal was to acquaint myself with the endlessly cool features and infinite possibilities the camera possesses while creating some beautiful photographs in the meantime. Read on to see the results!
This is my experience with the Lomography Redscale XR 50-200 (120), my first medium format film. It's an adventure that started when I got a Lubitel 2, to finally shoot with it. In this article, you'll find detailed information about color schemes, the advantages of shooting in medium format, and the differences between standard redscale films. Here are the results of a day of shooting outside, which I recently got back from the lab.
Sprocket Love: The Sprocket Rocket is the world’s first wide-angle camera dedicated to sprockets. It shoots 18 panoramas on a standard 35mm roll and exposes the whole width of film including sprocket holes. Use its dual winding knobs for easy multiple exposures and generate perfect nighttime shots with the bulb setting.
I have good memories of Tagaytay Highlands. There had been times when some of my friends and I would spend the weekend there, playing all sorts of sports and having our bodies healed in the warm and lapping jacuzzi pool. But those were distant memories. I was able to go back to this place, but only for an afternoon, and tried to remember the good old days.
Every summer, my soul screams for a lazy, hot day back at my parents' home, for some good food, relaxation, and catching up with childhood friends. This year is no different, so I went back down to my small hometown in the very northeast of Belgium to enjoy a perfect laid back day doing nothing and everything. And of course, I brought my analogue cameras along to eternalize all of these small but grand moments in life.
