From Boring to Great

Shall we take some fantastic pictures of such a boring day? Would that be a good idea?

It was a hard winter day and I had a horrible cold that made me sneeze to death. Boring was the only word to describe it, with Lain asleep at my feet and the Kleenex box nearly empty.

But then Lain and I looked at each other, and then to the SuperSampler on my shelf.

So I loaded my handbag with Kleenex, made Lain pretty and then we headed out.

Even if it was winter, people were enjoying the bleak sun while having a walk. This stressed Lain so much because he is so small and people tend to walk over him. So we went straight to the beach! I took him by his leash and he was the happiest dog in the world!

We ended up far, far away. We saw rocks, played in the sand, and Lain posed like a professional model.

The sun was going down and but it still gave out enough light for more picture-taking – things that under normal light I would neve take photos of, even.

We reached so far away that I could take this photo.

Tired under the sunset and with just one shot left in the cam, we started for home.

Every boring day can become a great day if you have a Lomo camera in your hands!

    Photo Stories: Away With You by lomomowlem

    It is clear from the wild variety of photos in the website that Lomographers will do just about anything to get a good shot. Some swap rolls with friends overseas while others concoct unheard-of film soups. And then there are the masters of operations, the ones who spy and crouch their way to a share-worthy picture. This is one such story.

    I am a Mad Analogue Scientist: New Experiments with 35mm Films and Chemicals

    Unfortunately, it happens sometimes that your resulting pictures are not what you expected - the image doesn't look that good, the colors are bland, and the subject is banal. Indeed, it couldn't be picture of the year! Herein I propose a second chance for your pictures by modifying your 35mm negatives. Just pick up some ideas from here, experiment, and scan your negatives with the Lomography Smartphone Scanner. Anything is possible: burning, scratching, putting on hydrochloric acid, balsamic vinegar, nail polish, bleach, or raspberry juice... use your imagination and write down your new film soup recipe! You can find a sample of the effects in this article.

    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.
