The Changing of the Guards is a ceremony that takes place every other day in front of Buckingham Palace. The name describes it quite well – it is the new guard changing places with the old one. I recommend that if you intend to go see the Changing of the Guards, you (unlike me) should arrive quite early, otherwise it will be very difficult to see the actual ceremony and all you will see will be the crowds of tourists, but don’t worry if you don’t – you will probably be able to get a spot to see the new guard march down the Mall.
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.
Reminiscent of traveling photographers of the 19th century, Giles Clement tours through the country with his assistant, Zeiss (an Irish Terrier), offering everything from portrait sessions to wildly creative photographic projects for magazines and companies. And although his mode of transportation may have evolved with the times, his photographic method and gear have changed very little compared to the photographers of days past. Now, with over 3 years of tintyping experience under his belt and an impressive list of clients, he's carved a name out for himself as an accomplished tintyper and continues to spread his passion for this ages-old technique everywhere he goes.
