Get a piece of Lomo-Home

11

What fascinates us all about Lomography? I think it is a lifestyle that one can live unrestricted (outside the borders).. even at home! Here I give you a chance to make your home more beautiful.

So, I’ve just moved and somehow, despite the new furniture, it is still uncomfortable!
A little more indirect light would of course be great, and I’m a fan of pretty light features…I thought to myself: Well you have plenty of time.. get to the hardware store! No sooner said than done, i went!

At the hardware store i wasn’t sure what i was looking for…but then I got an idea! To brighten my hallway i need a large lamp and after about 15 minutes I found what would soon be my new project.

At home, after i had unpacked the lamp shade and discovered the perfect place for it… it just didn’t seem right

So, I disposed the lamp shade, turned on my PC and started to print out some photos: 10 cm × 10cm

After about an hour I had adapted this format and i had about 45 photos printed on photo paper.
All i had to do now was cut out the photos because I had printed them on paper at 10 × 15 paper!

Then, I unpacked my Lomography photo clips and started putting together my creation linking together all my photographs.

I had a problem trying to mount the photos onto the lampshade so i looked to my tackle shop and bought fish bait hooks! A bag of ten cost about £1.54.

I divided the photos by putting a clip in the middle of the photo so i could gain access to the small hole in the clip.

Then it was completed!

The whole process was so much fun! and i am really pleased with the result. Not only do i have a pretty light feature in my apartment but i have something that is Lomo lifestyle.

Here is a list of parts required:
- A Lamp of Scandinavian furniture store for £6.16
- A packet of Lomoclips from the Lomography shop £7.00
- 6 Fish bait hooks from the fishing shop £1.54
- And of course your Lomo pictures about £12.31

I hope I have given you an idea to try yourself so you too can have a piece of Lomo-style at home (like your very own LomoWall)

Lomo on!

Your Lomotony

    May be worth protecting/laminating the photos in the first place - and as for the fire hazard, you should all be using eco bulbs anyway THINK OF THE PLANET :)

    So here’s what we’ve been working on: an all new lomography.com

    For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again.

    Chemical Manipulations with the Lomo’Instant

    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!
