2012-03-31 2

It’s time to announce our Tipster of the Week! This week’s article deals with going back to the basics. A good way to improve our techniques when shooting in analogue. Find out today’s Tipster article highlight after the break.

Surely, we’ve already learned a lot from all the Tipsters that the community members submit on the Magazine. It’s a good practice to look back at the basics once in a while in order to improve our techniques. This week, we found an informative article submitted by one of our members.

“There are three things that have to happen to capture a photograph, any photograph be it film or (dun dun dahhhhh…) digital. You must provide a hole for light to get onto a light sensitive medium. This is aperture. You must have a medium for the light to change. This is film. You must expose said medium to the light for a given amount of time. This is exposure time.”

Congratulations to adam_g2000 for bagging 10 Piggies for this wonderful article. Read the full article : Back to Basics: Film 101.

Do you want your article to be recognized as Tipster of the Week and earn 10 Piggies? Keep submitting your articles!

    Cinematographer Michal Dabal on the Petzval Lens

    Here’s what happens before we interview a photographer. We gush about the work though we have yet to find out the cameras and processes behind the brilliant composition or the light architecture. And even when they haven’t used a Lomo camera, we feature them anyway. But every once in a while comes a pro who uses one of our premium lenses at work and our fun cameras off-duty. This makes us mighty glad, more so when their images are good and worth sharing. We count cinematographer Michal Dabal's work among them.
