Here's a short tipster on how I made a short film using shots from my beloved LOMO LC-A. Try it out yourself as its loads of fun!

What do you need?

  • 1 LOMO LC-A
  • 10 AGFA CT X100/135
  • A Girl
  • A Boy
  • & an experimental heart…

Films, whose colors and effects, are always fascinating. In addition to capturing the moment of the picture, we want to continue making it beautiful. Therefore, we prepared a lot of films. Wrote a little story. And used an LC-A to complete it.

Light and composition is of course very important. After all, the LC-A cameras and the film can’t capture motion too quickly. So the actress must slow down her movements. Photographers only had time to press the shutter.

Finally, we put the finished photos into editing software. A small animation is complete.

The Lomo LC-A+ is known worldwide for its amazing features: automatic exposure, extended ISO range, and multiple and long exposure capabilities. Get your own Lomo LC-A+ now!

    Awesome !!! Just a crazy idea : If all the Lomographers made a 1-2 mins clip, we could all combine to make a full -length stop-motion movie ;)

    @lawypop Haha, that would be so cool! All we need is a script, divided in 100 short bits. That would make a fun rumble: every contestant gets a random bit of script, and the winning submissions would make up the movie.

    really cool, take a look also to the BBC documentary on Lomography, there's a section on the Lomo music video for Gotan Project "Santa Maria" on a camera that looks like a Kalimar Action Shot 16.
