Festival Summer 2010

2

I love summer. I love being outside, enjoying the sunny weather. I love live music. I love taking photos. Combine all and you get "festival"

So summer 2010 is over… Time to sum up and show off some festival-summer-live-music-people-lomo-action:

Groezrock
This little hardcore festival is one of the first every year and takes place in Meerhout, Belgium. Even if you have the perfect weather the nights are still very cold since its in April. Its a festival of short ways and still relaxed even if we reached the 30000 people mark. This was my first festival through a plastic lens and I went film-shopping before. (Groezrock homepage)

Diana Mini loaded with Kodak Professional TRI-X 400TX and Kodak Elitechrome EBX 100, Fisheye loaded with Kodak Elitechrome EBX 100, Supersampler loaded with Fuji Sensia 100

Rockfest & Blackstar Festival
Another two festivals which took place in Belgium (Schaffen and Leopoldsburg)
Really small ones, like really really small. I’m bad in guessing, maybe 500 people?!
The festival area was more like a small backyard or a front garden and the shows were inside, that’s why I didn’t take many photos…but I loved the skatepark outside. (Rockfest homepage, Blackstar homepage)

LC-A+ loaded with Kodak Elitechrome EBX 100

Vainstream
Heeey finally a festival in Germany, Münster :)
One of the hottest. And I mean hot like melting hot and there was no escape from the sun cause of the lack of shadow. Oh lovely sunburn…not!
It was fun but it would have been more relaxed on a bigger festival area and with some shady trees…. (Vainstream homepage)

Diana Mini loaded with Agfa CT preciser 100, LC-A+ loaded with Agfa APX professional 100 and DM Paradies Dia 100

Rüt’n’Rock
Another festival in Germany, Heren.
Another small one…bigger than Rockfest or Blackstar festival but still small. Maybe 2000 people. After a lot of sun this time it was all rainy. Bummer! But I don’t care getting wet when my favorite band Disco Ensemble is playing! Yeah! (Rüt'n'Rock homepage)

LC-A+ loaded with Fuji Sensia 200

Area 4
Lüdinghausen Germany on an airfield.
This one was the biggest I attended this year. Like 30000 people but still relaxed.
The first festival where I had the heart to bring the Spinner 360° with me. I was a bit afraid that the securities won’t allow to bring it on the festival area but it was no problem. It’s so much fun to spin around and see all this surprised faces :D (Area 4 homepage)

LC-A+ loaded with Kodak Elitechrome EBX 100

Spinner 360° loaded with Fuji Sensia 200 and Kodak Elitechrome EB 100

As you can see I prefer the smaller festivals, not those giant impersonal ones like Rock am Ring.
Let’s see what 2011 will bring. I will definitely go to the Groezrock festival cause it will be the 20th anniversary. See you there!

    Lomography Day Trips: A Three-Day Bicycle Route Across Italy and Switzerland

    I live in the North of Italy, near the border with Switzerland. I love to cycle in Swiss territory, because their car traffic is lower than in Italy and because there are nice bicycle paths free of cars and motorbikes. In this article I'll show you a nice three-day bicycle path that I cycled last summer. Take a look after the jump!

    It could be a risky combination: a film with an ISO range between 50 and 200, the Diana F+, and the British weather. But play carefully with the light and you can achieve some intense results.

For this article, I was inspired by one of her rare sports photos of some children practicing judo. Do you want to know more about this great artist? Well, read on!

    The Pleasure of Shooting Live Music Shows with the Petzval Lens

    There are small pleasures and big pleasures. A small one, like eating a chocolate after lunch, the first day of summer after a cold spring or finally meeting that girl you see every day on your morning commute can be more satisfying than anything else. As for me, shooting live music shows with the Petzval Lens is one of those small pleasures.

    The New Petzval Lens Through the Seasons

    The New Petzval Lens is not only known for its elegant brass exterior, but most importantly for the swirly bokeh effect it can bring to photographs. It makes a great portrait lens and performs exceptionally when taking photos of subjects against textured or lit backgrounds, day or night. And it does all these, in wet or dry weather; in any season – winter, spring, summer, or fall.
