And its raining at the red light district tonight.
“If there’s something inside you that you wanted to say, say it out loud it’ll be ok. I will be your light.”
My ipod is near drained and i find myself at a familiar corner which i frequented last year because it’s the only bar that serves you 100 kinds of beer. I smile, i walk and i shoot. I have always been fascinated with people who work at night and sleep during the day. This placid state during daytime comes bustling to life as soon as daylight extinguishes. Foreigners and expats frequent this side of the city mainly because of the girly bars. but I like to hang out here every now and then. There’s a 24-hour diner that serves the awesomest breakfast with free refills of coffee. There’s a bar there with chairs lining the road so you could see the action in the street as it unfolds. There’s all kind of restos around from Indian to American to Korean to Chinese. There are massage places and internet cafes. You can see vendors peddle cigarettes and ladyboys peddle their charms. The mix is as eclectic and as ironic as it’s name – the surname of a priest that died in a garote.
The ambiance is a crucial factor to consider when shooting photographs as light, color, and texture make up the overall visual aesthetic of an image. The Lobster Redscale 110 does not only bathe pictures in striking red but in other hues as well.
Colors mean differently for all walks of life. The color Scarlet is no mere orange-red hybrid hue; it's a passionate, haphazardous one. Lomography tries to understand the meaning of each complex color found in the gradient and what it means for most of us.
This month come and see the new exhibition by Brian May and choose your own camera for our workshops. Either test out some LomoChrome Purple film in the Soho streets or have a go at chasing shadows, light trails and reflections in our evening workshop.
Everyone’s always telling you to shoot with the light source behind you, to position your subject in front of a strong glow in order to emphasize texture and form. Now’s the time to defy that rule completely. Swivel round 180 degrees and tackle that light source head on cos’ it's time to start snapping some seriously insane Silhouettes with the LC-A 120!
Colors mean differently for all walks of life. For this week we have coquelicot, a bright red named from the wild corn poppy. Lomography tries to understand the meaning of each complex color found in the gradient and what it means for most of us photographers.
Ever looked up at the stars and wondered what’s out there? Well, this one’s for you. With work published in TIME Magazine and Wired, photojournalist Cassandra Klos' stunning series provides a rare glimpse into an alternate reality, light years away from earthly comforts.
For Danish photographer, Camilla Storgaard female and feminist matters occupy her processes as an artist. With her delicate use of light and colours, she tries to capture through portraiture the emotional struggles women face by the beauty industry and its pressure of perfection.
As soon as the sun goes down and soft, ethereal moonlight descends over the crowded cityscape, workers call it a day and shuffle back to their apartment blocks. While the rest of the city settles down to sleep, a myriad of multi-colored-neon lights, flickering shop signs and glaring car headlights illuminate the night.
The freedom of the analogue medium comes from the unlimited control and manipulation of light. Photographer Louis Dazy brings back his signature electric lights, neon bokeh and artful multiple exposures as he mixes and matches the lenses of the Neptune Convertible Art Lens System.
