Handy Tipster: Wearing the Sunglasses!

11

Hey, finally it's summer time! And that means the sun,sunglasses and Lomography! But have you ever thought to combine them up?

I love summer, but sometimes my eyes will hurt from the strong sunshine! That’s why we need the sunglasses! I love the color changed by the sunglasses lens! Then I came up with a random idea, what about to wear the sunglasses for my Diana Mini as well! So, I started my first experiment! It’s handy and easy!

All you need:

  • Your hands( For holding the sunglasses and press the shutter :p)
  • A pair of sunglasses
  • A lomo camera

Then, simply cover the diana mini lens with sunglasses before pressing the shutter!

Here is my result!

Easy, right? Try using different sunglasses lens for different result! But watch out your fingers! You don’t want it inside the photo too!
Lomo on! :)

    Creativity means Connecting Things - A Splitzer for the LC-A 120

    I don’t like to split. A split means distance, separation, it means categorical divergence. We split hairs, we split incomes, we split up. So the first thing we have to know here is that a Splitzer – different from what you might have thought - is not at all a nasty boy splitting things up.

    Pushing Boundaries: Multiple Exposing Film Soup

    As you may have read in my previous article, I truly fell in love with Lomography when I combined my Fisheye camera with an old Canon AE-1 for magical photographic results. Last summer, I took so many pictures of flowers that it started to become almost boring for me. My waning interest and the coming winter meant that I had to figure out something else to do with my 35mm film.
