Thoughts on the disposable camera of the A Million Little Pictures Project by The Art House Co-op. The Art House Co-op is well known for it's art projects. They blow them out of proportion- recruiting everyone who is willing to join. A fine example of the beauty of cohesiveness of humankind.
This year I decided to participate in the A Million Little Pictures Project. I paid the fee and funnily enough, I received my camera in the mail about two weeks after.
My Theme was Surviving The End Of The World. So I portrayed a story of a crumpled piece of paper roaming about an uninhabited space alone. It is the lone survivor after the supposed end of the world.
But there is always hope. And he finds a friend in the end.
However, this is a review of the camera and the film. Now I have no idea what film is used. All that is said is that it is custom designed especially for this project.
Having developed my pictures, I noticed that the blues and cyan tones appear in beautiful shades. The images are granular and have borderline expired film effects. I loved the effects that I got.
Looking at the negative aspects of the camera: The flash is horrid and there obviously is a lack of focus options and shutter speed preferences. The results are definitely better than I expected. The images taken on cloudy days are just as interesting.
If you want to experiment with it and mark the world with your urine, I definitely recommend this competition! There is a registration fee though. It is worth it.
Last year I took part in Photographia, a project that encouraged the use of cameras from the volt of Museu da Imagem em Movimento (M|i|mo). The gear collection used to belong to a well-known Portuguese TV channel (RTP) and some professional photographers. The cameras hadn’t been used since they were donated to the museum—until the launch of Photographia.

Her photos are distinctly romantic and brimming with artistry. Although Emily Soto is known for her high-fashion portraits and boasts of a portfolio that speaks of her magazine experience, her work, when crafted with the right concept and aptly art directed, tethers on fine art. This series of emotive fashion portraits taken with the New Petzval 58 Bokeh Control Lens is no exception.
Since Lomography launched its new Petzval 58 Bokeh Control Art Lens project on Kickstarter, we've been seeing a variety of pictures, from images of snow monkeys in Japan to behind-the-scenes shots of New York Fashion Week. Many of these pictures were shot with digital cameras, but we've yet to see how the Petzval 58 performs on an analog Canon Rebel camera loaded with black and white, and x-pro film. Join us on a trip through the heart of New York's Chinatown during the Lunar New Year Parade.
