    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

    Having a sweet tooth is already considered as a kind of addiction itself just like taking your camera everywhere you go which is obviously another indication of this unexplained compulsiveness one can have. And when these two are combined, perhaps it can lead to something much more colourful...

  • 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

    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!

    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.

    220 Redscale For The Lubitel+

    We all love Lomo Redscale film, no question. And with the release of it, people asked if there will be a 120- redscale. Most probably not. It is not possible to shoot through the paper back, you would have to turn the film around during production (so maybe sometime in the future?).

    Learning to Count With The Pop 9

    Looking at my Pop9 and its nine shots I thought about creating numbers like on a dice. I grabbed some black tape, taped some of the lenses and asked a friend to show some numbers with her fingers. I tried different tapings for the same numbers and called this series "learning to count". If you want to count till nine, please have a look at the shots below!

  • Extending the Photo Dimension When Double Exposing

    Extending the Photo Dimension When Double Exposing

    Shoot from the hip, but mind the composition guidelines. Sometimes you really know to appreciate a pic that has a foreground and a background, a pic that emphasizes the spicy dominant object from the numerous secondary details, a pic that carries a story of its own etc.

    A 35mm Effect on Medium Format Film!

    This tip consists of creating a 35mm effect in while using medium format film. What you will need is a piece of a 35mm film exposed - but without nothing on the film, something to fix the film with, some medium format film and of course a camera as well.

Spare yourself from this embarrassment and let your toes do the job for you the next time around. How so? read on...

  • Pop 9 - Multiple Images

    Pop 9 - Multiple Images

    I was bored with always having 9 identical images from my Pop 9 camera and while waiting for a new POP 9+ camera that allows multiple exposures I had the idea of making a multiple exposure film playing with some black tape to darken some of the 9 lenses. The greatest difficulty is to reload the film so that the second exposure matches in the best way possible the first one to recreate the usual 3x3 image grid.

  • The Lubitel + With 220 Film

    The Lubitel + With 220 Film

    We all know that new Lubitel 166+ takes both 120 and 35mm films. But I have tried 220 film and it works too! 220 films are longer 120 films, but without the protecting paper. You can shoot twice as many images, but you have to do something about the red window on the back of the camera, because as the paper-protection is missing from the film, your shots will be nothing if you don’t cover it. But this creates another problem, how far should you advance the film? That is another technique. You just guess how far to forward the film, so you'll get lots of overlapping images!
