When I bought my Lubitel, I knew I was finally going to be able to have fun experimenting with different apertures and depths of field. So i decided to buy along with the Lubitel a box of 3 rolls of 120 Lomography CN 800iso. After shooting the 3 rolls, I came to the conclusion that this film give excellent results NO MATTER WHAT are the light conditions !
These 3 rolls accompanied me during my one month summer vacation in the south of France. And I tried to do my best to shoot them with the widest range of lighting possibilities. From a clear blue sky and über sunny day; to greyish and white light skies; to shots that are entirely in the shade; to night shots with and without flash; to backlighting shots; to dusk and dawn shots !
So to conclude, the Lomography ColorNegative 120 (800iso) film is an excellent film to shoot and experiment different settings on a camera that allows it ! And I also believe that this film will also look great in a camera such as a Diana or Holga… for the next review maybe ;)
Thanks for reading lomo-fellows and remember that lomo means HAVEFUN =)
What exactly do I feel while waiting for my Lomo'Instant photos to be developed? I have to say I get a mix of "Surprise me, dear Lomo!" but also some "Did I capture it as I wanted?" kind of thought. No matter the school of thought, with the Splitzer you can add so many cool effects to your photos you'll definitely embrace it!
This article is dedicated to the multifaceted American photographer George Krause and to his series depicting funeral monuments realized between 1962 and 1963. I was able to know about this series thanks to an important essay on photography written by former Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) Director of Photography, John Szarkowski. For this tribute, I loaded my trusty Praktica camera with a roll of Ilford film and took a series of photos in the Monumental Cemetery in my city, Como. Take a look!

I traveled to Cartagena de Indias, Colombia in May 2015 with my twin sister. Our birthday was on the 31st, and for the last few years we've had a silent pact to try to spend our birthdays traveling as much as we could (and as long as we’re single!).
