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 :)

    Cinematographer Michal Dabal on the Petzval Lens

    Here’s what happens before we interview a photographer. We gush about the work though we have yet to find out the cameras and processes behind the brilliant composition or the light architecture. And even when they haven’t used a Lomo camera, we feature them anyway. But every once in a while comes a pro who uses one of our premium lenses at work and our fun cameras off-duty. This makes us mighty glad, more so when their images are good and worth sharing. We count cinematographer Michal Dabal's work among them.

    Long Exposures Around Europe with the Minitar-1 Art Lens

    One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.

    Pushing Boundaries: So I Heard You Like Multiple Exposures

    My name is Amber Valentine and I have a confession to make: I’m not really a photographer. I have a website full of photographs, a bookshelf full of cameras, film waiting to be developed, and a wall full of framed pictures I’ve taken. Even so, I don’t really consider myself a photographer per se. I think that Lomography is more about the experimentation and the fun of film than it is about the photography, and that experimentation is part of the reason I have embraced Lomography so.

    Light is Magical: A Talk With Li Hui

    Photography is not only an act of documentation or communication, it is also a way of seeing the world. The camera opens our eyes and lets us see what lies behind the obvious, and we start looking at things as potential subjects of a photograph. Every leak of light unveils secrets that talented photographers turn into a piece of art. Li Hui is one of those gifted artists. We talked to her about her work and her sensitive photographs that picture a wonderful vulnerability.

Let me introduce you to a few golden oldies and tell you about my experiences with them. I'll start with Rapid film.
