During this summer, I used both my Lomography LC-A+ (loaded with Lomography Redscale film) and my soviet ЛОМО ЛК-А (loaded with Agfa Precisa film). I thought it would be interesting to shoot some photos with both cameras and compare the results.
Ever since I laid my hands on an old Soviet ЛОМО ЛК-А, I had wanted to compare it with my Lomography LC-A+. This summer, I finally decided I would give the experiment a try but, just to make it a bit more interesting and experimental, I decided to use my favourite film in one of the cameras and some film I had never used before in the other. The Lomography LC-A+ camera was loaded with a roll of Lomography Redscale Film ISO 100, and the old ЛОМО ЛК-А was loaded with a roll of Agfa Precisa CT film ISO 100.
The cameras were used on the beach and during a short trip to Scandinavia. The results were quite interesting, although it seems that my lab scanned the redscale film from the wrong side. Accidents happens, right? I could give you a summary of all the things I think I have learned about the cameras and the film, but I am more interested in hearing your opinions about the photos. So here are some of the results:
The LomoChrome Turquoise film boasts bold and unpredictable colors, so I thought "redscaling" it would yield an even more dramatic result. Much to my surprise, the dominant color palette of my photographs revealed LomoChrome Turquoise's soft and delicate side.
Gloucestershire-based photographer Michael Sullivan loves to shoot film. Recently Michael shot with the Lomo LC-A 120 loaded with color negative and Lomography Xpro Slide Film, and the results were quite fabulous. Meet the man behind the camera here.
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.
Perhaps you’ve already had chance to try light painting, multiple exposures and long exposures with your Lomo’Instant, but what can you experiment with next? Well, that’s exactly the thought I had which led to giving this Tipster a go. I wanted to shoot Lomo’Instant photos which felt a bit “messier” than what I’m usually used to and to use a technique which would open up new possibilities with the kinds of images I could create with my favorite instant camera. Well, here I go!
There are quite a few perks that come with working for a film photography company, and the best perk of all is testing out the latest cameras. I can remember buying my LC-A back in 2009 and being really inspired to shoot film again. When the LC-A 120 came along, I couldn't wait to try it out around London. Join me as I test out this super medium format beauty.

Before clicking the shutter, he tends to "wait for a particular moment or weather condition" that fits the image he has in mind. In this interview, he shares more about his passion for shooting on film as well as some of his favorite landscape images.
