Fuji Reala, for all things natural

10

I love photos that capture a natural feel, color, and clarity. If you feel the same, let me recommend Fuji Reala.

When I began with Lomography, Fuji Reala was the film that my local lab stocked. I guess I began using it by chance… I quickly saw what this film was capable of. I like to capture bright, yet natural colors; and whether we are talking skin tones, grass, skies, water or neon lights, I’ve gotten great results with this film.

This film works a treat together with a Lomo LC-A. Make sure you use that light meter to it’s full potential! Don’t be scared to hold that shutter button down for a minute and a half in what seems like total darkness! You will be amazed what you will capture, great color saturation has resulted for me, time and time again.

I particularly love the way this film draws out green; grass and trees always seem so lush. If you are using this film in a camera with fixed exposure time, you will need to take care, it is a 100iso after all! Go for a bright sunny day, or be brave and push things a little with the bulb setting. My choice is the LC-A, let that light meter do it’s magic with a great film.

    I have had mixed results with this film in different cameras. My best result is in bright sun (as you say), with the Lubitel...

    In this article, I'll show you how the Lomo LC-A loaded with the versatile Ilford HP5+ can make the most out of a hazy morning. To capture the whirlwind of a bicycle race, I pushed the film to ISO 800. The legendary Minitar 1 lens and this classic Ilford film are a perfect combination if you love black and white photos.

    When the Soul Speaks Through Images: an Interview with Suji Park

    When a truly fascinating photograph hits you, it’s powerful enough to transport you to the story that is being told in that image. Such is what happens when one sees Suji Park's work for the first time. It’s as if you can actually hear and feel the details of each snapshot — the warmth of a late afternoon sun, the complex silence of nature or a dry and nostalgic solitude.

    Registering Moments With the Lomo'Instant

    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.

    This article is a tribute to the street and humanist photographer Sabine Weiss. Considered a living legend in street photography, she likes to photograph daily lives of people, trying to capture the emotions she recognizes around her. Weiss like to photograph people of all ages but she especially loves to take photos of children, masterfully immortalizing their spontaneous gestures and emotions. For this article, I was inspired by one of her rare sports photos of some children practicing judo. Do you want to know more about this great artist? Well, read on!

    Experiment: Chlorine!

    What's so great about analog photography? You never know what you will get in the end. Not every film let all of my photos look perfect, some fail, too. Maybe some of you experienced the same. After trying out several film soups and chemicals I finally discovered the easiest and quickest way: chlorine!
