Good ideas may be right in front of you, literally. Oldskool_rider was doing what he loves best, riding his BMX with an analogue goodie in hand – searching for the perfect shot. Passing some graffiti on the way to his next meet up he realized that you do not need graffiti motifs to actually shoot graffiti!
As long as you have a permanent marker, a dark room and some imagination you should be fine!
Unwind the film in your darkroom
Whip out your secret weapon – the permanent marker – to write on the film (remember, if you write with a black marker the text will be white when you develop your shots)
When you are done writing – roll the film back up and shoot again!
Don’t tell your lab what you have done as they will refuse to develop your negatives claiming that it will ruin their chemicals (it won’t as it’s permanent marker)
Do you long for the dreamy soft focus that only the Daguerreotype Achromat 2.9/64 Art Lens can give your photos? Grab it in the lens mount of your choice! Brass versions are now available for purchase in the shop!
Community newcomer Lena may have taken a break from shooting film but the "Don't Think, Just Shoot" mindset of Lomography stays on her shooting style. In this interview, she shares how she found her way back to the analogue grind and a selection of her dreamy double exposure photographs.
