What resulted were some lovely and well traveled doubles with creamy green and yellow tones. So the moral of this story is when you get asked to do doubles with an amazing lomographer; don’t hesitate and just do it.
When mephisto19 had first suggested to me that we do doubles together I was a little bit hesitant. My local lab had just closed down and I was in the process of finding a new one. I had two other rolls of film for doubles lined up to shoot. And to top it off I was about to head out to Chicago for an undetermined amount of time. After a couple minutes I came to my senses and thought, “The real question here is how can I possibly pass this up.” So I quickly told mephisto19 I’m all in and he then sent me out a roll of Fuji Sensia 200 which he had already shot.
I received the roll right before heading off to Chicago and I packed it in a box that could be sent out to me after I arrived if I so choose. Well, this turned out not to be the case as my trip was cut short, but upon return and unpacking there it was waiting for me in its little tin shell. So I quickly loaded that bad boy into my Lomo LC-A and got to shooting.
Our Lomographers love their Petzval and, as a result, they have taken it to the most amazing places: gardens full of green, immensely busy cities and breathtaking landscapes. Yet, sometimes, all you need is what you have right at home. Keeping family memories with the Petzval Lens never looked this good, and golfpunkgirl does it well.
We love multiple exposures because no matter what scenes you choose to combine, the end result is always spectacular! Double (or triple) yourself up in a self portrait, or experiment with different patterns and objects when you shoot with your Lomo'Instant Wide and watch your amazing creations develop before your eyes!
When someone asks me why I love Burkina Faso so much and what's so special about it, I answer without any hesitation: the people. There's something in this country that connects the people together very strongly. Here, foreign visitors are warmly welcomed. And honestly, I think that the portraits I'm most proud of and that I really love are those shot in Burkina Faso. "Why," you ask?
What do you do when you don't have much time in a city like New York but you want to see everything, feel the vibe and be part of the community, even for a short time? Jump on a bike and enjoy what trains, buses and cabs can never give you: be part of the city. Take a camera with you to capture the moments and sights you don't want to forget. I did this with my LC-A 120 and LomoChrome Purple film.
Water is synonymous to life, but everyone knows this does not apply to the vastness and depths of the Dead Sea. English photographer and wanderlust Maya Beano recollects the time she braved and swam on one of the saltiest bodies of water in the world.
The "Be An Explorer" campaign was launched last week. Apart from the 80-metre long LomoWall outdoors, there is also a Lomo'Instant Wide and Petzval Photo Booth, allowing you to experience the instant photo and the classic bokeh effect of the lens. Let us see what happened!
Etienne Despois' first foray into film photography was made possible by a vintage Canon FTb camera he received from his father. Meet our featured community newcomer from Paris, France in this short interview.
Everything about a person can be read upon the sight of his face -- the squint of eyes, turn of lips or raise of brows immediately paint one's feelings like an open book; but these elements are shrouded in English photographer Toby Harvard's portraiture.
