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!

Some months ago the wonderful city of Matera, chosen as the European Capital of Culture 2019, hosted an exhibit featuring the works of an important Italian social photographer: Pepi Merisio, who had also donated all photos shown to the local public library. To pay homage to this great artist, I have selected a series of photos that I took in this place last summer. Take a look!
By now the Lomography site is like a pail of candied purple. Our confection LomoChrome Purple has produced forests and flower beds the shade of lavender macarons. Hard to resist the fantasy! But lately we have noticed darker, late-afternoon-sun versions. And we like what we see.
Anna Fischer calls herself a beauty documentary photographer. Her backstage photos of last year's New York Fashion Week revealed the glitz and glamour of such high fashion events. Her personal work, however, is more intimate, as seen is this series of photos taken with the new Petzvl 58 Bokeh Control Art Lens.
Photography has been described as a time-stopping device, something that “freezes” an action. This moment on-pause is the most salient; all conversation about the picture will tend to pin down the beauty of that second. Celeste Ortiz’s photos make us think of something else. A sense of continuation.
