New Playground Experiment: Colors and the Kids

21

We've just added another experiment to our playground: browsing photos by colors. Which has nothing to do with kids, we just like the Cat Power song.

Credits: peach0303

Head to our playground to start browsing photos by color. We’ve also prepared a rainbow view, though this one might take a while to load. Right now we limited it to around 10,000 photos, but more will come soon (it just takes a while to calculate the colors). Let us know what you think of it in the comments!

Update: we’ve added three more modes: black and white (showing a gradient from dark to light b/w photos), dark (showing all dark photos) and light (showing all light photos). Have fun!

    There used to be one looooooooooooong wall in the old blog where photos were sorted after color.... Will there be something similar? That'd be great! Very good though and I must look longer at it

    So here’s what we’ve been working on: an all new lomography.com

    For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.

    Nothing Happens on Color Film: Street Life in Como As Seen From the Bus

    Some weeks ago, I made a tribute to the great photographer Robert Frank and his 1958 black and white series taken in New York from a bus window. He is the master of the ordinary moments, capturing the essence of daily life in a series of free and random sequence of photos where nothing important happens! And as I've written there I wanted to take a similar experiment with color film, which would change the perception of the environment where people live. Read more after the jump!

    Coloring Outside the Lines with LomoAmigo Tim Kerr

    We recently had the great opportunity to interview our latest LomoAmigo, Tim Kerr. While his repertoire stretches back to the late 1970's and includes that of musician, artist, painter, photographer, skater and many other things, he just prefers Tim! We gave him a La Sardina DIY, which he not only added his own style to, but shot some excellent photos with as well. Rife with candid and thoughtful answers, we expect everyone will glean a nugget of wisdom and leave with a smile.

    Analogue Archives: The Chakras of Colorsplashing, Revisited

    Chances are you've seen plenty of color-drenched photographs while browsing through the Photos section. Faces painted blue, pets tinted green, and foliage splashed with pink light. It's called "Colorsplashing," one of Lomography's earliest techniques for giving your shots a quick color boost. We dug through the Lomography archives to revisit "The Chakras of Colorsplashing," a special project created by Lomography and Staple Design six years ago.
