    Tipster Of The Week: Flick Of The Wrist
    Suddenly your boss has just given you a forced vacation leave and didn't supplied any reason, then your girlfriend called, telling you she can't see you anymore because... just because. Then afterwards, you've just missed the last train back home. Had a similar story such as this? I know how it feels. Don't fret about it now but instead I got you this:

    Colourful Instax Mini Macros With the Tunnel Vision Lens
    Recently I ordered a "Tunnel Vision Lens":http://shop.lomography.com/tunnelvision/ from Lomo for my LCA, Holga and Lubitel. This lens is so multi functional! So when mephisto19 gave me the hint that the macro lens that is included in the Tunnel Vision Lens can be held in front of almost every lens we thought about my Instax Mini 7.

    Tipster Of The Week: Colour Filters, The Sweety Kind

  • Everybody Loves the Fisheye!

    Everybody Loves the Fisheye!
    The fisheye is my first camera ever - and I loved it. But after taking more than a hundred shots I realised that it wasn't the most versatile camera in the world. I thought that one could take the fisheye concept further - modify it in some way and still have the absurdity of a camera which can only take fisheye pics. At first I wanted to make a medium format fisheye - I tried to modify a Holga to have a designated fisheye lens, but it was rather hard to get the lens in focus. Then I tried to adjust the aperture and shutter speed of the fisheye which gave some very funky pictures.

  • DIY Lith Printing

    DIY Lith Printing
    From time to time we are presented here at LSI with different ways of manipulating film; by peeing on it, scratching it, boiling it while putting our health at stake... but I don't think I have seen a single lab rat tips on things you can du to your prints. Most of us apparently have our own darkroom, since we can develop our own color/slide film after having peed on it, so why not show some printing tricks.

  • Holga CFN - How I Hate to Love You.....Your Flash That Is!

    Holga CFN - How I Hate to Love You.....Your Flash That Is!
    The Holga Affair - we're all a part of it, we love this blocky plastic camera. With each new model we awe and drool a bit and find new ways to explore our creativity. With the Holga CFN we experience new ways to blend color into our night shots and get gitty at the chance to prowl the night searching for new objects and people to shoot. If you have this camera you may have noticed that without the 6x4.5 mask the batteries which power the flash have a problem of falling out of place. I tried tape (the same electrical tape I use to decorate my Holga) but the heat of summer and the bumps and turns while riding my bike around town caused the batteries to get loose and fall out of place. I even spent a few times in the pub with the camera under my shirt trying to resituate the batteries into place without exposing the film to any light. The main problem besides the flash not working was the tape and or batteries would get in the way and block part of your film from being exposed.
