What to have that 1 second suspense shot from your multi-lens camera? This could be it.
I thought of doing this at the hype of Oktokino Mini Movie submissions where shots were edited and posted as a moving GIF. This tip will create a 1 second suspense part when the picture is in motion.
-Any multi-lens camera (in my case I used my Oktomat to give the person enough time to change or if its an inanimate object, more time to change the direction to capture a different view or angle)
-Black tape (or any other material that you can use , just make sure light does not come in)
The process is easy. Just cut the black tape and cover the lens you want blackened out. In my case, I covered every other lens to create a mime-like expression of faces.
You can also use other materials and more colorful ones like red, blue, green and yellow instead of black to cover the lenses and create a Pop-art camera even in a Supersampler and Oktomat cameras. That’s why the cameras have many lens, be creative! make use of one lens different from the rest! =) Thanks for reading!
Have you ever tried going lens-less when taking a photo? Try shooting with ONDU Pinhole Cameras and see what it's like to take photos through a tiny pinhole. Check out these lovely shots taken by Lomographers; if you do have some ONDU pinhole photos of your own, upload and tag them accordingly so that we can see them!
If you run a small business selling hand made items online, you would know how vitally important it is to have amazing product shots to help sell your work. I tested out the new Petzval lens on some of my hand-printed items to see if I could get a winning shot, and below is an overview of what happened.
Have you ever wished that you could just extend the view of your camera to perfectly capture what you see through your viewfinder? See how an artist does exactly just that with this series of sketches based on old photographs.
Lomography has previously shown you the kind of shots that one could take with the new Lomo LC-A 120. Now, with the first batch already shipped out and arriving to their lucky owners, it's the community's turn to show everyone what they've been shooting with this awesome camera!
Strutting its way out into the sun, this cute little pug doesn't mind being the center of attention. It even poses for the camera with its tongue out, showing off its perky character in this multi-framed snapshot. Congratulations to deepfried_goodness for having our Photo of the Day!
I backed the Kickstarter project for the Lomo’Instant earlier this year and was thrilled to receive it last week. I love how the camera naturally encourages you to experiment with its different features, whether it’s through flashing your multiple exposures with different colors or trying different creative techniques after your shots has been ejected. Here are a few tips from what I’ve discovered from playing with the camera so far (and a couple of tips I want to try out in future)!
The New Petzval Art Lens is the perfect portrait lens. But have you ever wondered how it performs in difficult situations with low light and unpredictable movements, such as a concert? Viennese rockstar photographer Matthias Hombauer proves that such a challenge can be surpassed with exceptional results. In Linz, Austria he met the American rock band Portugal. The Man and shot excellent black and white photos! Check out the gallery below and let Matthias teach you how to work with the lens during concerts.
You want your subject be the center of attention? Petzval lens photos are recognizable for sharpness and crispness in the centre, strong color saturation, wonderful swirly bokeh effect, artful vignettes and narrow depth of field that will make your subjects stand out!
Capture the world and all its contours in vibrant, wide-angled photographs any time, any where! The LC-A 120 is an adventure of its own with lots of exciting functions to experiment with, like seamless long exposures or full ISO control. It's also super-fast and ultra-compact - perfect for your everyday. If you're worried about the Medium Format film, don't be! You are free to use any 120 Film you want and there are plenty to choose from. In fact, that's what makes this camera so versatile! Scroll through this gallery for a little taste of the glorious shots this nifty invention is capable of.
Keep experimenting with your analogue shots and try out many different styles. This time, let these filter photographs from the community show you how easy it is to create images that are popping with effects and color!
