Panoramas with the La Sardina!


I've been into Lomography for nearly 2 years now and as a designer I love eye catching images. I really love trying new things with photography. I'm a big fan of multiple exposures and now doing panoramas when possible!

Creating a panorama is simple and you can use any kind of camera and any film. For this I used the new Lomography La Sardina and Lomography X-Pro Chrome 100

  • Step 1: Find a suitable subject, a bridge, iconic landmark, fields or just something you love. (preferably not moving)
  • Step 2: Always start on the left! take a photo, try to stay still and wind on your film.
  • Step 3: Staying in the same spot, move your camera round to the right a little, making sure you still have part of what you took before in your viewfinder, so you can overlap your picture. take another shot and wind on.
  • Step 4: Repeat steps 2 and 3 until you have taken your whole desired image.
  • Step 5: Once you have got your film developed. scan in your images. (or use supplied images from lab scans)
  • Step 6: Open a new document in Photoshop or similar to your desired size, and place all your panorama images in the new document.
  • Step 7: Overlap your images so they all line up over each other. tip: take the opacity down on your overlapping images so you can line them up properly.
  • Step 8: Once you have your desired image, crop (I like to have a black border as I feel it gives the image a punch) and admire.

I have also included some other results using this tipster where I have used the LOMO LC-A+ with Fuji Velvia 100 and the Diana F+ with KODAK 160 VC

    Yes, there is other software available and cruzon mentioned.
    You can also go all out analogue by having them printed, stick them together and mount them on a board, it works just as well :)

    PhotoShop!?!? X-(
    Search in the tipster how get endless panoramas with any cameras without photoediting softwares!

    andredimu - There is pretty minimal photoshop (other than placing your images on top of each other). I know you can do endless panoramas with any camera, without photo editing, but this is creating panoramas with a different approach, you get a completely different effect. Surely that's what Lomography is, experimenting with what you can do with photography??

    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)!

    Chemical Manipulations with the Lomo’Instant

    Perhaps you’ve already had chance to try light painting, multiple exposures and long exposures with your Lomo’Instant, but what can you experiment with next? Well, that’s exactly the thought I had which led to giving this Tipster a go. I wanted to shoot Lomo’Instant photos which felt a bit “messier” than what I’m usually used to and to use a technique which would open up new possibilities with the kinds of images I could create with my favorite instant camera. Well, here I go!

    My Day in Analogue: Living Between Three Cities - Bandung, Bogor, and Jakarta

    For the past three months, I've been living alternately between three cities: Bandung, Bogor, and Jakarta. I'm originally from Bandung. I now work in Bogor, sometimes in Jakarta. I could be in Bogor on a Friday, Bandung on a Saturday, and Jakarta on a Monday. Shuttling between these three cities, I don't forget to document what I see and experience with my LC-Wide.

    From Russia with Love: Motorama Shoots with the La Sardina Splendour

    I don't know many bands from Russia but one that I've been admiring for years is Motorama from Rostov-on-Don. With catchy tunes and adorable videos, they took my heart by storm and that of fans from all over the world. Because of their Russian origin, Motorama is of course familiar with Lomo products. Reason enough to let them become our latest LomoAmigos! Enjoy the interview with singer Vlad and check out their B&W photos, taken with a La Sardina Splendour.

    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.
