How can we capture the speed of light in just one shot using the Horizon?
On this occasion, we are going to see how the Horizon captures the movement of the light coming from the metro wagons in Barcelona. The first thing that you have to consider is that the camera has to be on a tripod or supported by something else (a bench, a flat surface, the floor, etc) and should not be moved at all. Second thing and also very important is that the speed of the shot must be set to slow. Then, we get comfortable, we look around and we hope that we will be able to hear the whistle of the coming train. We prepare ourselves, we aim… and shoot!
The feeling of wanting to take a stroll around the city or countryside can sometimes be so overwhelming that it can make one head out on the streets at the spur of the moment. Before you go on a streetwise adventure however, remember to bring your Horizon camera with you so you can capture those sweeping cityscapes.
A lot happens in a day, made up of those little moments that we usually take for granted. So we asked some of our friends from the Lomography team to capture some instant photos throughout one day, using the Lomo'Instant Camera. The result? A collection of memories that they could catch, hold, and cherish forever. We compiled their instant moments into a cool video, which you can check out after the cut!
There are certain types of photographs that we lomographers just can't get enough of no matter how much we've already taken them. The silhouette is one of them, and the staggering number of such photographs that can be found in the alone community is a strong proof of its popularity.
Ever since light painting was invented, it inspired artists from all around the globe to magical creations that capture hidden movements and reinvent the world we live in. "Life is a fairy tale, stay wild little child!" is what they want to tell us. Bringing light to life became the next challenge for anyone rigged with a film camera and a creative mind.
Now, how can you take your analogue light paintings from the ordinary to the outstanding? After the carriage came the car, so we definitely need some spacy inventions to follow the old school light pen. So here it is, our new best friend: The Pixelstick!
We can all come up with all sorts of useful ways to utilize bubble wrap, but not everyone would instantly think of using it as a medium to create art - just like how New York-based artist Bradley Hart had!
It's really amazing how simple plastic bricks can be assembled to create or, in this case, imitate works of art. Have a look at Veronica Watson's rendering of a famous Picasso painting using Legos after the cut!
