Are you seeing red leaves, yellow skin, green skies, and white trees? Hey, you must be hallucinating! Or maybe not because they might just be psychedelic infrared Lomographs!
Films that are sensitive to infrared light — this is the easiest way to describe infrared films. May seem complicated? Don’t fret because it’s not! Especially when you’ve got all these crazy colors beautifully messing up your analogue photos!
And we just can’t help but adore and be amazed by these mashed-up hues! That’s why for this week’s selection of photos by the Community, we have decided to handpick the best 50 analogue photos shot using various infrared films.
So are you ready for a crazy yet colorful ride? Here they are! Enjoy!
Colors may be amped to look unreal, like nothing of this world. Shots may be doubled, cross-processed, post-processed, mixed up into collages. The possibilities are infinite, yet some photographers still prefer black and white. Even in 2016, it is an ode to classic values of precision and balance. Light and shadow must be one pleasing dance. And just like in a well-choreographed piece, forms are obvious or playing coy. It all depends on how you're looking.
One of the biggest attractions in the "Be An Explorer" campaign is the 80-meter long LomoWall outdoors! It is designed and constructed by the team from Lomography’s headquarters. Each photo was installed one by one. Watch the behind the scenes of this massive LomoWall!
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.
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.
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!
