I have always wanted to shoot at night. The lack of in-built flash in my LC-A+ has been bugging me for a while until I met the Colorsplash Flash Chakra edition. It saved me.
Do you feel frustrated at times when you can’t capture the moment with your Lomography cameras when hanging out with friends? I always feel handicapped with my LC-A+. Things took a change when my boyfriend bought the Coloursplash Flash Chakra Edition as a pleasant surprise for me after hearing my complaints over and over again.
The Colorsplash Flash brings vibrant colors to your photos! There are a total of 12 different interchangeable color filters, ranging from yellow to hot pink, to experiment with. Play with the colors and expect the unexpected. Superimposed the colors together or select the colors depending on your mood. Furthermore, the color wheel makes changing colors a hassle free affair.
Do not limit using the Colorsplash Flash at night only! Try the color flash in the day as well. Remember, there is no boundaries for Lomography and that’s the fun part it. Try creating more colors on the slide films, like splashing red on your friends’ face.
However, some might find the Colorsplash Flash a little too strong for your liking. This does not mean you should not get it. You just need to make some changes to your Colorsplash Flash to soften the flash. You can tape a small piece of tracing paper or tissue paper to the flash to soften the flash. So the Colorsplash Flash will not appear very strong on your photos.
This Colorsplash Flash is suitable for anyone, everyone out there who loves to experiment with colours. Share your favourite Colorsplash Flash photos here on Lomography!
This is a story of me and Sardine, my first ever analogue camera. We've been traveling for thousands of miles and met a lot of friends. Even though I have better cameras, Sardine is the one camera that will always be in my heart! So once again, this is my story with Sardine
Sometimes when taking pictures I get addressed by strangers either because of my cameras or because they don't want me to shoot something they claim they have responsibility for. But having the police on my back was a new experience.
Exactly seven years ago, I bought this camera from Indonesia's local Lomography community. I remember having some savings in my bank account and just spending it all on this camera. At that time, I browsed the microsite for the Lomography Fisheye No.2 and immediately fell in love with it! Coincidentally, my friend who introduced me to Lomography just bought this same camera for his birthday. My life has changed ever since I had the Fisheye, my first lomographic camera.
In New York City, winter has been harsh and long, the nights long and cold, and shooting outside is not fun anymore. So when the Lomo'Instant Boston Edition hit the shelves this week and the new Splitzer arrived at the Lomography Gallery Store New York, we decided to do a round of light painting portraits instead of sunny ones.
What exactly do I feel while waiting for my Lomo'Instant photos to be developed? I have to say I get a mix of "Surprise me, dear Lomo!" but also some "Did I capture it as I wanted?" kind of thought. No matter the school of thought, with the Splitzer you can add so many cool effects to your photos you'll definitely embrace it!
You want your subject be the center of attention? Petzval lens photos 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!
It may take a while for some lomographers to figure out the perfect combination of camera, film, and accessory that suit their needs. But, Wessel de Haas, aka wesco, has been extremely lucky to find his early on his journey to Lomography. Find out what film and accessory he likes pairing his La Sardina 8Ball with in this edition of My First Lomo Affair!
In December, two new cameras came into my possession: from the bag of Sinterklaas, the Dutch Santa Claus, came a classic Minolta SRT100 with two lenses and a flash, and I also picked up the Horizon Perfekt that I had won in the "Eliza was here" rumble. By now the first rolls have been shot and developed!
I participated in the Kickstarter campaign and purchased my very own new Petzval lens. I can't wait to use with with my digital camera to experience its wonderful bokeh effect. I also wanted to try its effects when using a film camera but the lens has an EF mount. I didn't have a Canon camera. See what I did with it after the jump.
In my early adolescence, I liked to play table football. For my 12th birthday, my parents gifted me with a wonderful Subbuteo table soccer game set that I had wished for many months! This was my favorite toy until I discovered other interesting hobbies, like ham radio and electronics. So after some years, I gave away this game to other kids. I always remembered this game with pleasure and a hint of nostalgia.
I backed the Kickstarter project for the Lomo’Instant earlier this year and was thrilled to receive it last week. I love how the camera naturally encourages you to experiment with its different features, whether it’s through flashing your multiple exposures with different colors or trying different creative techniques after your shots has been ejected. Here are a few tips from what I’ve discovered from playing with the camera so far (and a couple of tips I want to try out in future)!
Ever since I got my LC-A+, I've always taken it with me whenever I travel. This little wonder works awesome with any film, in every weather and cultural context. In Sevilla, Spain, it was no different.
