Get up somewhere high, cross your fingers for a clear night and prepare your camera for a night shot, as the Northern Lights are passing over the UK for the next couple of nights!
According to the weathermen Aurora Borealis, that most rare phenomenon, will show itself in the UK skies for the next couple of nights, following on from an intense sun storm that has generated at least three solar flares.
The effect is fast moving and shimmering, but you should be able to catch it, if you’re ready! We recommend using the Diana with some high speed film, such as Lomography Colour Negative 800, set to the B setting, or making the most of the light meter built in to the LC-A+
If you manage to capture it put a link to your shots in the comments below, and as far as we know you’ll be the first ever UK Lomographer to catch this elusive sight on film (certainly none of us at Lomography UK have, despite numerous trips to Iceland!)
Those long, frosty, dark nights are finally behind us. It's time to dust of your Diana F+; wipe down your LC-A Wide and get shooting again! Join us for some fabulous workshops and events in Soho and come and visit us in March at the Birmingham NEC as part of The Photography Show 2015. Read on for the full line up.
Previously a music journalist, Stephen Dowling now writes for the BBC. If that isn't interesting enough, London-based writer is also passionate about film photography. He has blog called zorkiphoto where he writes about all his favourite cameras and film types. The folks over at Lomography UK lent him an LC-A 120 and, as you'll see in a bit, he managed to get some wonderful shots.
The folks over at Lomography Hong Kong donned some Halloween costumes and took the Lomo'Instant for a spin, and produced some spectacular night and light-painted shots. The results are not too spooky but definitely filled with Halloween fun!
