Do you like double exposures with a partner? Do you like redscale film? Read on to learn about a cool trick my friend @istionojr taught me when we did doubles together recently!
istionojr and I have been friends on Lomography.com for a long time, but when he approached me awhile ago to do a film swap, I was excited and honored. I had a roll of generic 400 ISO color negative film I had shot and not developed, so I mailed it to him in Indonesia right away, but when he let me know he received it, he told me he was going to do something very cool with it that I had never thought of: he was going to double-redscale it. Essentially, he was going to do a DIY redscale conversion of the film I had shot and double expose through the back of the film. Nifty, right?
Essentially, all you need are the standard DIY redscale tools:
A roll of film (in this instance, one your partner has shot normally)
A darkroom bag or lightproof room or even a jacket you’ve turn inside-out
Detailed instructions for single-roll redscaling can be found at this excellent Tipster posted by casperxd
Shooting the first layer (the “front”) of the film should be done in accordance to the ISO rating of the film, and the redscale portion should be shot at about 2 stops less in order for the second exposure to compensate, just like you would your own DIY redscale film. So, in my case, the film I shot was 400 ISO in my ActionSampler, and istionojr shot it after redscaling it at 100 ISO in his Lomo LC-A+. I would recommend films from 200 ISO (50 ISO for second exposure) to 800 ISO (200 ISO for second exposure). Find yourself a partner and get double-redscaling! I think you’ll be pleased with the hybrid color/redscale results.
It's been a while since we last heard from Hello America, the photographic storytelling platform created by Kristen Blanton and her partner, Matt Jozwiak. .Blanton and Jozwiak travel American roads together and document their tales strictly on film. The two have been very busy, and recently went on a road trip from Florida to California. Kristen shares the story behind their recent adventure.

One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.
The LomoLab EU has moved and is now open for business! Analogue lovers from Austria, Germany, Spain, Netherlands, Belgium, Luxenbourg, and the rest of Europe can send their films to:
However, if you're based in Germany - and you don't mind a longer waiting time, you can still send your rolls for processing to:

Lomography is always on the lookout for experimental and creative film, because we want to keep the love for analogue alive! We’re devoted to continually adding new and exciting films to our ever-expanding collection of photography products, both from our own production line and partnering together with likeminded companies. So in our ongoing quest to do so, we have teamed up with our friends at KONO! The Reanimated Film to share a totally new and exciting film with you — KONO! Donau 35mm Film!
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.
Light Painting is a cool technique that we love to do when we're in the mood for experimenting with photos. It's super easy and fun, and it only requires a dark room, a friend or two to collaborate with, a camera with long exposure mode and a light painting tool to get started. Check out 50 of the most vibrant light painting photos taken by your fellow Lomographers after the cut!
We all know about 35mm and 120 film, right? And since Lomography re-introduced 110 film, we have another film format to play with. But in the years past, many more film formats were in use. Let me introduce you to a few golden oldies and tell you about my experiences with them. Here's how I revived my Instamatic cameras.
