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.
I prefer being outdoors whenever I go on a vacation at the seaside. For this reason, I always choose to stay at a campsite instead of a hotel. This year, I stayed at a beautiful one in the south of Italy. Here is a series of photos which I received a few days ago from the excellent LomoLab service, taken with my Sprocket Rocket. Have a look after the jump!
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!
Every year, just a few weeks before summer, I dedicate a series of photos to the joy of living outdoors in this good season. One of the most common pleasures is taking one's socks and shoes off to feel the first warm rays of sun on our pale feet, which were prisoners inside shoes throughout the long winter season. So, it's time to take off your socks and shoes and relax barefoot! Where? Of course, on the walls surrounding the beautiful lake! Take a look!
From the simple Vivitar 110 camera he received from his grandmother, Brett Wolff already accumulated close to almost a hundred cameras and accessories in his analog arsenal. Some of the cameras he treasured were even handed down by relatives and friends, making these more precious to him. Let's take a closer look at his camera collection.
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.
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.
