My secret Ingredient for a very satisfying Lomographic meal: Kodak Ektachrome E100G!
If you talk about a crusader, in Venezuela, you are talking about a type of stew (soup typical) that combines chicken and beef. Then you talk about cross-processing slide film, color negative or vice versa. Gastronomically, the cross is very tasty, and Lomographic too. Therefore I present to you my secret ingredient for this process: the Slide Kodak Ektachrome E100G
This film creates wonderfully saturated colors while maintaining a wonderful contrast. Furthermore, the Kodak Ektachrome is spectacular as it gives a fine grain. A nice thing about this film is that although it ‘exploits’ the colors, but it does not ‘over-kill’ the overall tone of the picture. I recommend you shoot in lots of light to get those amazing results.
These photos were taken with my beloved Diana F+, which adds to the Ektachrome. It’s wonderful vignetting and in general, strengthens its virtues. The film also comes in 35mm, so try it with the LC-A which I already did and I’m looking forward to seeing the result. It is going to be great.
Two years ago I swore to myself, I'll be coming back soon!" This October my chance finally came and I flew for the second time to New York City to visit my dear colleagues in the Lomography Gallery Store New York. What I didn’t see coming, though, is the opportunity to test a new secret film during my trip.

In April of this year I had the chance to test the Petzval Lens and to write a review on it for the German photography forum Kwerfeldein. The lens excited me from the very beginning, at the time it was introduced on Kickstarter. I was afraid that once I had tested the lens, I would want to have one of my own! Well, that’s what happened; a year later, I finally bought my very own Petzval lens.

This year marks the 70th anniversary of the publication of one of the most influential photography books ever, "Ballet" by the photographer, art director, and graphic designer Alexey Brodovitch. Brodovitch took a series of photos of classical dance in a very unconventional way, using very slow exposure times, trying to catch the true essence of Russian ballets. For this article, I took a series of photos at the Swing Crash Festival in my city, Como, held in June 2015.
