A Wider Perspective With the LC-A

17

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.

    @ lomosexual_manboy:

    Yeah, it's Fuji Superia 1600, my absolute favourite color film for concert photography, and it hasn't failed me yet... It really captures the colours and I can shoot handheld without flash which is great when you move around a lot and try different angles.

    I think one of the three photos that I submitted is a TVL shot, not Wide angle lens.
    It's the one where three girls are sitting on the bench.

    I remember using Fangcarpenter's WAL on that shot, but it looks a little dreamy eh...

    @ icuresick- I don't think so...I remember you used WAL on that photo not TVL

    @yoscolmi- thanks! :)

    Photographer Gilbert Blecken Captures Iconic Musicians on Film

    Back in the 1990s, Gilbert Blecken was a big music fan and wrote for his own small music fanzine. He would interview bands in between sound checks and take photographs of them. He was never a professional photographer or worked for a company; he simply did it for his fanzine. Twenty years on, Gilbert’s photographs have matured into an amazing documentation of some of the biggest music icons of that era. We caught up with Gilbert to ask him about these photographs and the fascinating story behind them.
