I absolutely love the Imperial War Museum. The sheer extent of their collection is astonishing – I have spent hours there and still haven’t managed to see everything. Every time I go I am moved by some object or detail that I never noticed before. And for those of you with bad memories of school history – don’t think that it has anything to do with history being boring! They also include interactive experiences where you get to walk through a simulation of a WWI trench and of a WWII air raid. They successfully make visitors engaged in the material and contemplate the devastating effects of war. Outside of the museum is a piece of the Berlin Wall, with graffiti of a sort of screaming face and the words ‘change your life’ which I always find particularly poignant.
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!
The Science Museum in London is set to play host to a showcase of some of the earliest known images taken by photography pioneers, selected from the collection of the world's oldest surviving photographic society.
When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand, located at the Danish west coast, with my brothers and parents. I stopped going there as I grew up. In 2012 however, we hit the road again. It was my first return visit in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In part two of my journey log, I'm going to show you the pictures I took with my Lomography cameras.
When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand located at the Danish west coast with my brothers and my parents. However, I didn't anymore when I grew up. But in 2012, we hit the road again. It was my first visit there in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In this article, I'm going to present to you the photos I took with my Nikon F-501 SLR.
Joel Byron is a long-time fan of Lomography and uses analog methods in his work at his video and film production agency BigPlus. Back in 2010 he painstakingly put together the Lomography Caterpillar Matrix video which had over 60,000 hits! We lent Joel a Petzval lens and asked him to capture some video footage of London. The results were pretty stunning.
Lomography has announced that shipping of the Lomo’Instant will begin in December, but if you want to use a lomographic instant camera with an interchangeable lens system, among other possibilities immediately, you should try the Diana F+ Instant Camera!
How early can photography be taught? After some lessons on visual expression, the Museum of the City of New York had second to fifth grade students traipsing around Central Park and Museum Mile with a camera.
