I decided to shoot a roll of doubles with myself layering the stars of the night sky with ordinary things down on Earth!
Here’s a quick and dirty tipster with amazing results!
1. Mark your film so that you know where the film will go the next time you re-load it.
2. Look up “stars”, “nebula”, “galaxy”, etc on the internet and shoot the first layer of your computer screen at double the ISO (If your film speed is 100, change it to 200 for both layers). Turn up your screen to the brightest intensity!! Make sure to choose photos that are large so the photos will be less pixelated. If you have posters of stars, those should work too! And choose different photos to takes photos of!
3. Then rewind your film, but make sure to leave the film leader out of the canister so you can re-load it!
4. Load the same roll in and shoot photos over the first layer at a doubled ISO! I found that bright outdoor shots wiped out the stars and indoor shots at night worked best with a flash.
(You can see a light smattering of stars in the dark areas in this photo, but otherwise the day time photos were too bright!)
It’s up to you what you want to shoot, so go out there and Lomo on! :)
Out to Sea: Alan Davis Beach Having heard about this place from many of my friends, I decided to head down there to see what the fuss was all about! Down there was a perfect, little beach!
Seaside Chillins! I started coming to this place this past summer with my friends, and it is definitely one of my favorite spots on the island. It's the perfect place to just hang out with friends and have a good time!
Lasting Impressions! Having already made multiple prints from my negatives at school with the enlarger, I decided that I wanted to add some sugar and spice to my photos with some cool designs! This idea also works with cyano type paper and other light sensitive papers.

Fresh from the Lab: I Climbed the Highest Mountain A year ago I tore the ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) in my left knee. Six months ago, I had an operation. For the half-year anniversary I wanted to do something special, so I did. I climbed the highest Slovenian mountain.
LomoKino: Life in Moving Pictures! I bought the LomoKino years ago, and since then I've been having great times with it. I will continue documenting my daily life with the LomoKino, which is Lomography in motion! You can see the movements and facial expressions of people - it’s priceless! Documenting life in moving pictures, the Lomokino can be used as a camera that not only shoots moving pictures but also works like the multi-frame wonder camera, Supersampler!
