We're not trying to confuse you with the title. For today's Lomography News, we're going to look into HERE, the film by Braden King, and their use of both digital and analogue mediums.
The recipient of numerous industry awards and accolades, the film HERE is the culmination of director Braden King’s years of hard work. The story is basically about a romantic relationship between an American satellite-mapping engineer and an expatriate Armenian photographer who impulsively decide to travel together into uncharted territory – both literally and metaphorically.
That’s well and good but what’s in it for us Lomographers? Well, the film straddles the fine line between digital and analogue mediums. In fact, it marries the two seamlessly and weaves it flawlessly into the story so that the lines between become blurred and practically non-existent. The enchanting photographs of Armenia coupled with the stunning cinematography certainly give credence to this multi-platform motion picture.
The New Lomography Petzval Lens is, without a doubt, a striking innovation that has impressed analogue and digital shooters alike. The Petzval works seamlessly with both platforms, producing exceptional and oftentimes dreamy, bokeh-rich images. There are, however, photographers who prefer to shoot analogue and are oblivious to the lure of digital imagery. Here are a few photographers who have chosen film as their go-to medium, and and the Petzval as their ally.

Trench, chesterfield, covert, raglan. The coat has a vocabulary of its own. And like words we use today, these styles still look current though their roots may go as far back as the mid 19th century. As if by lending these vintage snaps color and unruly hair we can easily mistake the coats to be from today.
Adi, Ekeu, and I did a lomowalk around downtown Bandung last Saturday, the beginning of November. We planned to use our Lubitel cameras with only one roll of film each. We were inspired by the One Roll of Film Project by four Tokyo-based photographers with their Hasselblad cameras. This is about the one roll of film I shot with the Lubitel 166U, which made me love shooting in medium format even more.

Lomography Singapore plays host to Parallel Planets’ first exhibition, "Façades: Neo-Noir Portraits Exhibition," featuring all-analog photography: a sea of black and white film portraits. This exhibition serves as a platform where both local and international photographers can express themselves by injecting individual perspectives into their craft. It also encourages viewers to look through the lens of the photographers, to see the subjects as who they are – flawed, alive, and breathing – and to also see beyond the façades we all choose to don.

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!
