Ghent By Night

11

Since last school year I've been living in the beautiful student city called Ghent. Living here as a local has learned me to appreciate the beautiful authentic village that is bursting with life.

Since last school year I’ve been living in the beautiful student city called Ghent. Living here as a local has learned me to appreciate the beautiful authentic village that is bursting with life.

When I first started analog photography, my first roll was completely taken in Ghent, while wandering in the many little streets at night. I discovered many bars and cozy restaurants.

Since most shots were taking after midnight, some places were already closed. This was a nice opportunity to capture them in a deserted state, free from all human hassle and movement. Nothing moves, everything is dark. Often lit by beautiful lights.

I really advice to take your camera out for a walk at night in your local city, or why not my city Ghent? :)

    Nice work man :) I love ghent to, right now I study Architecture in Leuven, if it wasn't for the great University i would already have settled in Ghent
    Although I do believe it is much nicer to live and work their, then to study . Or is that total crap :) ?

    Studying is studying, university is university, I don't think there's any difference between Leuven and Ghent for that.
    I'm happy to study in Ghent cause I have the nice little extra of living in a beautiful town! :)

    Lomography Fisheye No.2: Seven Years of Wonder

    Exactly seven years ago, I bought this camera from Indonesia's local Lomography community. I remember having some savings in my bank account and just spending it all on this camera. At that time, I browsed the microsite for the Lomography Fisheye No.2 and immediately fell in love with it! Coincidentally, my friend who introduced me to Lomography just bought this same camera for his birthday. My life has changed ever since I had the Fisheye, my first lomographic camera.

    My Lomo’Instant Quick Tips

    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)!

Lomographer ihave2pillows had the wonderful opportunity to see the snow monkeys up close a couple of years ago, and here are some of the photographs that he had shared with the community.

    Kyoto in a Heartbeat

    Like a cluster of cherry blossoms, the temples in Kyoto can stop visitors in their tracks. These people assume the pose of a statue, a camera dangling from their neck and hands. On a first visit especially, the impulse to photograph every angle is constant. The Kinkaku-ji Temple and the torii-lined Fushimi Inari-Taisha are always packed; one would think the tourists would hurry along. But really, many are busy taking snatches of Kyoto with them.
