Many times you find yourself in the situation where no matter how hard you try to squeeze everyone into the picture it is simply not possible. Either a head will be left out, somebody's left arm will be chopped off or maybe the whole body will be missing? Well that's no good is it?
Many times you find yourself in the situation where no matter how hard you try to squeeze everyone into the picture it is simply not possible. Either a head will be left out, somebody’s left arm will be chopped off or maybe the whole body will be missing? Well that’s no good is it?
That’s why awhile back Lomography introduced what has since become one of the most sought after accessories – the Wide Angle Lens! We trust that it has indeed widened your perspective!
For this rumble we want to see your best LC-A Wide Angle Lens shots. Don’t hold up, we have scraped the upload limit for this one! But be sure to upload images that are larger than 768px either height or width. And what about piggies? For this one we are awarding the best 3 Lomographers with 10 piggies each.
Enough with the talking, now start uploading!
By uploading to this rumble you allow Lomography to use your pictures in an upcoming newsletter.
As the iconic LC-A celebrates its 30th birthday this month, we think it's only timely that we look back to Lomography's roots and shine the spotlight on the camera's birthplace, Saint Petersburg. If you haven't been there yourself, or if you have and simply wanted to be reminded of the beauty of the place, we've compiled a few select lomographs taken using no less than the LC-A by our community members!
Read on dear friend and I will weave a story for you. There may be more questions than answers raised by this peculiar tale. But if it’s clarity you seek, have no fear, things will become clear in time (they always do, don’t they?). So rub the Sandman’s dust from your sleepy eyes and take a journey with me. If you think you have an answer when we reach the end, please do share it in the comments!
You want your subject be the center of attention? Petzval lens photos are recognizable for sharpness and crispness in the centre, strong color saturation, wonderful swirly bokeh effect, artful vignettes and narrow depth of field that will make your subjects stand out!
It is always a pleasant experience collaborating with our old friends and LomoAmigos. This time, Emily Soto shot another wonderful series with her Petzval Art Lens. We can't wait to share it with everyone, so here they are!
Lomographers love reflections. Peruse the website and you are bound to find water puddles mirroring trees and glass windows duplicating people's motions. What beautiful sights to record indeed! But how else can we approach this doppelgänger effect? Seven ace photographers give us wonderful ideas.
April 23 marked World Book Day, a UNESCO-designated annual event held in celebration of books and reading all over the globe. To commemorate, here are fascinating images of people from several decades ago, reading not on Kindles or iPads as many are wont to do today, but actual books, newspapers, and other forms of the written word.
The Rolling Stones in circus masks, a bare-faced David Bowie and Johnny Rotten in a bulldog clipped-jacket. Such details Anton Corbijn has ingrained in rock history. These images plus 300 more of Arcade Fire, Nirvana, Siouxsie Sioux, REM, U2, Nick Cave and Depeche Mode have a collective premiere at Fotomuseum Den Haag.
Before smartphones and digital cameras, Diego Uchitel used a Polaroid to test his lighting. For many of his subjects, these dress rehearsal shots turned out as marvelous as the published pictures. David Bowie, Sarah Jessica Parker, Gisele Bundchen and many other celebrities exposed their delicate side for Uchitel's magical lens even after the main show.
