What will happen when silhouette meets multi-exposure?
One fine day, I was out with my cute tiny yellow Holga, strolling along the nearby beach garden, waiting to see what fun I can get a hold of. It was an extremely sunny day, and I was thinking to myself, this is perfect for photos. But then I had the idea to cover the sun before snapping away.
Then I thought of doing multi-exposures next. I took my hat off my and hung it on a tree, pointed the camera to my face, and released the shutter. And this is how I took the photos a lot people now love!
I was over the moon when I went to pick up the developed film from the lab. I imagined that the result would be amazing. And they were!
Now it’s your turn to try it. Let’s start a special project. Let’s call it “Picture in Me.”
Again, all you have to do is stand with the sun behind your back, release the shutter with the camera pointing at yourself. After that, without advancing the film, shoot anything that interests you.
Perhaps take a portrait of your beautiful girlfriend if she is on your mind. When she sees this, I bet she’d swoon.
If you have too many things on your mind, then you don’t have to care about what you’re shooting.
The Perfect Format to Document Your Life There are times when I want to ask people who take really really good photos, "Is it absolutely necessary that your photos look perfect?" Because, me, I just want to document the things that happen in my life.

Camera Modification: Turn your LC-A+ into a Rainbow Camera! Personally I am a huge fan of redscaling. It allows you to get some color in your photos, even on the grayest of days. But what if you just want to add the redscale effect to just some of your photos rather than shooting an entire roll this way? Easy enough: use a red filter! And while you're at it, why not throw in some other colors as well?! Read on to find out how you can turn your LC-A+ in to a rainbow camera!
Use Two 110 Films on a 35mm Camera for Crazy Awesome Shots So there are a lot of tipsters and hacks on the web for using 35mm film on different format cameras, so I went and tried using 110 on a 35mm camera, and this is pretty much what I got on my first try. It’s a bit of a process, but it’s also lots of fun, then again, what in Lomography isn't?
The Meopta Stereo 35 aka The View-Master Camera In my junior year of college, I had a crazy idea for a project for my directed study class. I wanted to create my own view-master reels, and to my surprise a view-master camera not only existed, but was available for purchase. Everything about this camera was a difficult trial and error challenge, but the end results are a one of a kind gem.
