For this we need : a cup of tea, from 50 g black tea in a 5 dl water and left it ten days to room temperature while shaking it once in a while on a daily basis. I used a plastic bottle. After this, heat the tea on 70 Celsius (not boiling), add a tea spoonful salt and 1cm Paradontox toothpaste and finally add 1 pair secret tablets witch was use on Veterinary clinic named Burov Solubrete (blue is Lead acetate crystal 7,8g and the white is Aluminum potassium sulfate 4,9g). In my country can buy in any drugstore, over-the-counter without any prescription. This concoction would look like a hot muddy water. Put a film in this soup and simmer it in 5minutes max./ not boiled !. Wash it in a cold water and dry it in a dark place afterwards. This soup can use more time !

I love the different styles of cameras that Lomography has, but I also like to create my own cardboard cameras that use pinholes to be able to take pictures using traditional film. This time I created the Pinhole F, a camera inspired by the Diana F+ and shoots 12 pinhole photos using 120 film.

This is a tribute to Juergen Teller, a great fashion photographer who continues to work with analogue cameras. In the 1990s he radically changed the way to make fashion photography. His models appear "soap and water", without heavy make-up, and his images seem taken like an amateur photographer. Between his nice works, there is a photos that I like so much, taken in Cuba and called "The Girl with the Broken Nose." Take a look after the jump!
Imagine an alien space mission from a planet of the Sirius Star System to an abandoned industrial zone of Como, a city situated in the North of Italy. The alien photographer named sirio174, used a powerful futuristic camera, called Lomo Lubitel 166U loaded with a Kodak Portra film roll. Yes, no digital, because the future is...analogue!

Not long after Alex Timmermans purchased his first digital camera at the turn of the century, he quickly realized the trappings of digital photography couldn't fulfill his personal photographic desires. He then began searching for a more challenging process — one that wasn't so predictable. His journey eventually landed him back at the roots of analogue photography, specifically employing the wet plate collodion process using original Petzval lenses. This antique photographic process found in him a renewed inspiration and has since become his passion, which is evident in both his words and his images.
"Magical" here means that every time I use the Diana F+, the results are always beyond both my expectations and imagination. That's why I always use it when I feel like doing something different. It has never failed me since day one; I even always bring this camera during my trips!
