Taking extreme close-ups with your Lomo LC-A+ is easy!
All you need is your Lomo LC-A+ and a magnifying glass. The important thing to remember to keep this tip simple is to use a magnifying glass with a handle, otherwise it’s just awkward. You need to experiment with your magnifying glass to find the “sweet spot” for pics to be in focus. I found that it works best when I hold the glass touching the camera with the center (the thickest part) in line with its lens and hold the entire apparatus about 3 inches from the subject.
The above pics were taken with the aperture fully open (f2.8). I think this increases the bokeh, or blurriness, in the background, but I haven’t experimented with it enough to know for sure.
The camera is an auxiliary to our sight; seeing things that the naked eye cannot. Everything is not what it seems in the David Lynch-like lens of analogue photographer Grace Gloria Denis as she zooms up-close to seemingly mundane still life.
Throughout the year it's easy to get distracted away from what really matters: friends and family. Remember the most important people in your life this holiday season for a one-off chance to win a special Lomography Hamper, which includes the iconic Lomo LC-A+!
