Pop Art with the Pop 9

When you find that your portraits are becoming dull, liven them up by adding texture! I find that the best way to do this is to shoot doubles with a Pop 9 first then your trusty LCA after, the results of which are absolutely mind-blowing!

When you find that your portraits are becoming dull, liven them up by adding texture! I find that the best way to do this is to shoot doubles with a Pop 9 first then your trusty LCA after, the results of which are absolutely mind-blowing!

This little plastic camera sure packs a punch! 9 identical photos in 1 frame give it its Warhol-ish appeal. It also includes a built-in flash but I always use it with ambient light, which is perfect for giving your doubles texture. Get your favorite film preferably one with low iso so that it’s easy to underexpose. Load it up and think of a theme to shoot like signs, letters, numbers, or anything that catches your fancy. Don’t forget to shoot with the Pop 9 upside down so that it will be in the correct orientation when you double it.

Rewind, take care not to wind it all in unless you have a film picker handy! Shoot around and be pleasantly surprised with portraits that pop out and come alive! If you’re feeling extra adventurous and daring, you can go with triple exposures for triple the fun! Just take care not to overexpose it too much so that everyone can see your Pop 9 art in all its glory!

    Nice one! I especially like the header pic and the first one in the gallery.
    I've tried Pop9/Smena-Doubles once but most often one camera was stronger than the other so I got lots of pure Pop9- and pure Smena-shots. Of course also some nice doubles that I really like. Well, I should try it with my LCA again.

    LomoAmigos: The Ting Tings Go Analogue!

    The Ting Tings are a musical duo from Manchester who have more pop hits than you can shake a stick at. They are most famous for their 2008 hit "That's Not My Name" which got even the stiffest of people shaking in their seats. The Ting Tings are back with a brand new album called Super Critical. They are big film fanatics (check out their website for proof) so we gave them a Sprocket Rocket Camera and a bunch of film to document their life in sunny IBIZA.

    This is my experience with the Lomography Redscale XR 50-200 (120), my first medium format film. It's an adventure that started when I got a Lubitel 2, to finally shoot with it. In this article, you'll find detailed information about color schemes, the advantages of shooting in medium format, and the differences between standard redscale films. Here are the results of a day of shooting outside, which I recently got back from the lab.

    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.

He likens film photography to using cassette tape and relies on his favorite combination of LC-A and Ferrania Solaris 800 in creating evocative images.
