The views from a cruise ship are just amazing, so why not capture it with a Fisheye? The ship is enormous, so to capture that, I took pictures of the "tail" or the red exhaust pipes from the top deck. The red glass is actually the ceiling of the atrium below, so don't forget to take a shot from inside the ship looking out (that's the shot that looks like I used a red filter but it's actually the sun shinning through the red glass that made this effect.)

You should also go towards the back of the ship and capture the waves made by the engines. Also don’t forget to take your camera with you when you explore off the ship. You can get some great shots snorkeling in the crystal clear waters. Since this was our first cruise, we wanted to go all out and book a room with a balcony. I highly recommend this! We took pictures of ships cruising next to us, the islands we passed and it was all so private. We booked our cruise through Carnival and we left from Florida in the spring time.

Justin Quinnell’s expertise when it comes to pinhole wizardry is unquestionable. This photographer and lecturer from Bristol, United Kingdom, has crafted the most unusual of pinhole projects, from installing cameras onto ships cruising around the Caribbean to taking photos of his kids being born from inside his mouth. One other project that he is known for is being able to make a pinhole camera from a soda can. Watch the video below and learn how!
Are you annoyed by Newton's rings that appear when you're scanning your Lomo'Instant shots? I am, so I came up with the idea to create something to ensure that the photos don't touch the glass, but aren't too far away from it either because of the sharpness.
Some of the most breathtaking views can be found in nature, so make sure that you're able to capture these perfectly with the appropriate gear. Have a look at this gallery of landscapes in medium format courtesy of the Diana+ 75mm Premium Glass Lens!
You want your subject be the center of attention? Petzval lens are recognizable for sharpness and crispness in the centre, strong color saturation, wonderful swirly bokeh effect, artful vignettes and narrow depth of field that will make your subjects stand out!
Unfortunately, it happens sometimes that your resulting pictures are not what you expected - the image doesn't look that good, the colors are bland, and the subject is banal. Indeed, it couldn't be picture of the year! Herein I propose a second chance for your pictures by modifying your 35mm negatives. Just pick up some ideas from here, experiment, and scan your negatives with the Lomography Smartphone Scanner. Anything is possible: burning, scratching, putting on hydrochloric acid, balsamic vinegar, nail polish, bleach, or raspberry juice... use your imagination and write down your new film soup recipe! You can find a sample of the effects in this article.

The second trailer for "Star Wars:Episode VII - The Force Awakens" has the internet abuzz in the last last few hours. To join in on the fun, we scoured our archives and the cyberspace for some Star Wars treasures. Think Princess Leia and her double in that glorious gold costume, plus a photo of the new cast in roundtable discussion.
It's late October in Copenhagen and summer was well and truly behind us. With the nights drawing in, the chances of going out with one of my cameras was slim. All was not lost at this time of year, however, as it allowed me time to focus on my own personal music projects—I am a professional composer/musician and audio engineer at my own studio by day.
