All of us lomographers do like and love slide film. But often we forget that out there are other films. They are called color negative film and one of them is from Kodak with the name Portra 160VC. A great film that deserves a little review.
One of the first negativefilm that I bought for my Diana F+ was a Kodak Portra 160VC. It was one of the cheapest in my local film store and so I gave it a try. My first rolls weren’t so good that I could say: yes, what a great film. But time after time I became a better feeling for my Diana F+ and for shooting. I still often get the 160VC and i became happier and happier. The 160VC is a film which can you bring all sort of different colors. It’s good to use on sunny days or in the night with a flash, but it brings you also great results on grey days.
The Diana F+ was my first camera but soon I wanted more and I get more ;) I bought me a used Lubitel 166B auctioned off at eBay. Again I needed film for my Lubitel. And once again I took Kodak Portra 160VC. My Lubitelshots were all a big success. At this moment I realized how great this film is. You can use it even in the night in a room with normal light and the shots come out great. The colors are often very deep but also soft. There is more or less no grain, only if you take shots at places, where you haven’t this much light. So I can only say: give this film a try and let you take on a great ride of deep colors and beautiful tones. Oh and by the way this film loves blues and reds ;)
So go out and grab you a roll of this film and enjoy it!
Hiking in New Zealand has its own proper noun. Great Walks, they call it. The term stands for nine routes that can send people panting and oohing over nature. In 2001, another upper-case name sealed the country’s reputation for pristine land. "The Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring" became an accidental advertisement for the green wonders of New Zealand.
If you'd be shooting in low light, at night, or in any other situation that would require a high speed film for best results, why don't you try the Lomography Color Negative 800 for 35mm cameras? Allow five of our community members to convince you with their respective reviews in this installment of Reviews on Rewind.
Browsing through the Lomography website, you can find a lot of redscale shots, which are all done on color negative films. I asked myself if it’s possible to redscale a slide or chrome film and then cross process it. (And yes, it is.) In this tipster I’m going to teach you how to create the bloodiest homemade redscale film I've ever come across.
Done shooting and want your films to be processed? We can process your colour and black & white 35mm, 120 or 110 films! Development, prints and scans are also included. (Service availability depends on your markets)
In photography, we notice the surface first. The color and texture of things help us imagine what’s beneath. Doors, part of a building’s skin, have this appeal. They suggest how long a structure has been around and what sort of fellows live inside. They are details that fascinate Lomographers, judging from the many LC-A 120 snaps of intriguing entrances.
Some people say instant photos bring about a feeling of nostalgia. Although I often use the Lomo'Instant Camera with different crazy accessories such as the Splitzer and color gels, I have to agree there is something about it — dreamy vignettes maybe? — that always makes me want to go back in time and experience it all over again. In the name of analogue photography and good old memories, we passed by some classic spots in Vienna and took one shot after the other. Take a closer look at our gallery.
Every week we will be selecting three Tumblr blogs with exciting, more often than not photography-related content.
For this week's selection, we have a little bit of everything: from double exposures and breathtaking scenery in film to a play-doh artist inspired by photography. Three very different blogs that are equally fascinating!
Not all photographs are meant to be seen in vibrant, saturated colors, and neither are they always suitable for in black and white. Lomography welcomes yet another innovation from KONO! The Reanimated Film. Without diminishing the aesthetic value of images, KONO! Donau 35mm Film casts a distinct blue tone to photos. It is ultra-low ISO film that is best used for long exposure shots. Check out this fine selection of uniquely tinted images.
Mysterious apparitions and other inexplicable phenomena on film, or generally speaking, for that matter, are as highly debated topics today as they were many decades ago. In 1934, a certain Mr. C.P. MacCarthy of 15 Wilkinson Street, Sheffield held a lecture at 76 Clarkehouse Road located in the same city to "demonstrate under test conditions Fake Psychic Photography" before an invited committee. MacCarthy's demonstration was accompanied by a series of photographs titled "Psychic Photography From a New Angle."
While many of us can only dream of working with musicians and photographing them, Angela Izzo's job entails exactly that. Apparently, this is a fulfillment of her own dream that she had when she was younger. In this interview, Izzo talks about her beginnings which, of course, included going to as many shows and festivals as she possibly can; some of her most memorable on-the-job-experiences with the likes of The Doors, Lykke Li, Jack White, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and Chris Robinson Brotherhood; her inspirations and other interests; and her love for film photography and Diana Mini. And to those looking into fulfilling their own dreams of working in the same industry, Izzo also shares helpful advice based on her own experiences.
