This sport is really interesting to look at, thanks to the speed the skaters reach (more or less 60 km/h which on these sketchy turns is really impressive) and also thanks to the tactic aspect of the races. It’s a bit like track cycling pursuit, you see these six guys evaluating each other until one picks the right moment for an acceleration and tries to pick the win!
Of course it’s also a great place to make a few cool shots! First of all the track is quite small so you should be able to actually see the skaters on you shots… And usually they wear bright colorful suits so that can be a good point for you lomographer!
I recommend you to use high ISO film for short track is usually inside, and fast so you will need short exposure times! Oh and it would be good you are quite used to you camera… I shot a black & white roll (Fuji Neopan 1600) with my F65 (which I don’t use much often), and most probably the sensor didn’t appreciate all that icy white… All my shots were underexposed! But I managed to save a few of them… Enjoy!
Every year I get the winter blues. I start imagining the feel of the sunrays, ice cold beer after a long summer day, and the endless hours spent on the beach. I have captured moments, memories, and dreams this year, which is my favorite thing to do. This is a short version and visual diary of my year 2014.
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!
With an expanded field of view and its ability to produce high quality images and capture minute detail, medium format photography has become the top choice of many photographers. Lomography is working hard to make sure that it keeps going with the continued production of medium format film and cameras. The current issue of German magazine FOTO HITS focuses on medium format photography. And with this rumble, we want to prove why medium format photography is king. Take your Diana F+, Holga 120, Lubitel 166+ or the new Lomo LC-A 120 and show us your best square shots!
Really want to bring your film photos to life? We’re now offering totally analogue fine art prints in a host of large sizes and formats! Carefully enlarged from your negatives onto premium photographic paper by lab professionals, each picture is a unique piece of craftsmanship.
As many of you would already know, shooting under low light conditions requires more than a steady grip (or a tripod) if you're aiming for outstanding results. You must also have the proper gear, and that, of course, includes film. In this post, we list down five fast films that work their best under such conditions.
