Let the Light Seep Through in Lomography


Some may hate it and think of it as an awful mistake. A miserable effect brought by some bad move in analogue photography. While others, hail it and accept it as part of this mysterious challenge we call Lomography!

What could this be? What is this thing we could love and hate at the same time? Well, there are a lot of technicalities to consider but this one is for the keeps!

Light leaks, my friends! That splash of light in your Lomographs from an unexpected source that could either make or break your Lomograph! But here’s the thing, we at the Community love the unexpected!

That’s why this week, we’re bringing you not 50, not 60, but 65 stunning Lomographs in our Community with amazing light leaks! Don’t we just love them — we can’t get enough of them!

Here they are, fellas! Enjoy this gallery!

    Wonderful gallery, as usual! Heart-shaped light leaks: www.lomography.com/homes/ginny/photos/14724805 and www.lomography.com/homes/ginny/photos/14724811 When I went to pick up this roll at the lab (not my regular lab), the woman proudly told me she printed some of the photos in sepia in order to make the light leaks disappear... These have survived! I haven't had a chance to re print them yet but I was really annoyed at the time.
