The Door of The Desert

7

A trip to Ouarzazate (Morocco) also called The door of the desert. The town is also noted a film-making for so many international film companies.

One month ago i went to Ouarzazate (Morocco) and its the capital of Souss-Massa-Draâ in the southern-central Morocco.
The town is chiefly inhabited by Berbers, who constructed many of the prominent kasbahs and building for which the area is known for. The town and surrounding area is also a noted film-making location, with Morocco’s biggest studios inviting many international film companies to shoot their films. Films such as Star Wars, The Last Temptation of Christ , The Mummy or Gladiator were shot in the Ouarazate area.

I go there with a lomography RedScale, for increase those red tones of the desert and a Velvia for the saturation of the colors.

    LomoAmigo Simeon Smith Shoots with the Jupiter 3+ Art Lens

    UK-based photographer Simeon Smith is a true analogue apostle, sampling camera sounds to make interesting rhythms, then shooting film to make his music videos. He is also a huge Leica fan so we decided to lend him the new Jupiter 3+ Art Lens to test out.

    LomoLocations: Reno, Nevada

    In prime areas of New York and San Francisco, the phrase ‘rush hour’ is always on the menu. Drive up to Reno, and the same expression fizzles. Many roads are framed by mountains and shrubbery, a picture of calm in the city. But the night makes up for the day’s stilly mood. Casinos flaunt LED signs and marquees, a treat for urban photographers.

    Vicuna's Travel Stories | Sunrise in the Desert

    Burkina Faso is a country that has three different climatic areas. It's mostly a land of the Sahel, very dry but with some vegetation and a short rainy season. The very south of the country is already in the tropical zone but the north still belongs to the Sahara desert. I had the opportunity to visit this area and witness a magical moment: a sunrise in the desert.

    The Pfaueninsel ("Peacock Island"), also known as "Pearl in the Havel sea," is a world cultural heritage and popular destination for Berliners. Loose peacocks, water buffalos and the magical character of the island were also a reason for me to go and spend one Sunday afternoon there, with my LC-A+ and the LomoChrome Purple film.

    Lomo In-Depth: The Defining Role of Women Photographers in Art History

    It is general knowledge that history—ruled and written by austere patriarchy—has not been so kind to women. Photography is one of the rare exceptions; womankind has set its pervading presence and participation in photography since the birth of the camera in the 1800's. Lomography traces the role of women in photography with a special, comprehensive summary for International Women's Day.

    Experimentation is the bloodline of Lomography. The nucleus of the operation is an open mind. This has made digital strides possible, but even then, the movement is still beholden to film photography. The reasons range from philosophical to practical. The scope also includes three fields that make analog photography challenging—and yes, quite the daring opposite of digital ease.

     Inspiring and Daring Women in Contemporary Photography (Part I)

    We love a striking photo as much as the next person, but a unique point of view makes us head straight to a feature. Who should the world know more about? Who has rocked our perception of beauty, sexuality and creativity? These questions populate our notepads, and our list of photographers is quite long. For International Women's Day 2016, we whittle the directory down to our current favorites, photographers who resist labels (even the ones we give them) and dare the world to see what they see.
