Has photography become too much of a grind? Spend too much time obsessing over that ‘perfect’ shot? Break free with the Orca!
Michael Raso of the Film Photography Project is right: 110 film IS fun! It’s small, extremely easy to use (you just clip it in your camera, no loading really needed) and at only 24 frames per roll you won’t spend forever trying to use it up.
I’d got bored with 35mm photography and needed a creativity boost, something to get the enjoyment back in small format. Lomography’s resurrection of 110 film was just what I needed. I bought two rolls of the first release of Orca, got myself a Holga 110 Micro (this was before Lomography had released their own Baby 110 range) and took it along to the Film Photography Project meet-up in London.
The lighting conditions were pretty poor for a 100ISO film but it made no difference to the Orca film. All the negatives were well exposed and easy to scan. The film copes well with the grey English weather and the detail it conveys surprised me. For such a small film it certainly packs a lot in.
In the city or in the countryside, it’s a great format to have for just firing off shots that you aren’t sure will be worth using a frame of your precious medium format film on. If you aren’t sure about 110, just give it a go. You’ll have a whale of a time!
With an expanded field of view and its ability to produce high quality images and capture minute detail, medium format photography has become the top choice of many photographers. Lomography is working hard to make sure that it keeps going with the continued production of medium format film and cameras. The current issue of German magazine FOTO HITS focuses on medium format photography. And with this rumble, we want to prove why medium format photography is king. Take your Diana F+, Holga 120, Lubitel 166+ or the new Lomo LC-A 120 and show us your best square shots!
His work has the anachronistic charm of hand-tinted photographs and the trippy flavor of rock. Sometimes too his portraits of Lana Del Rey, Kevin Parker and Jim James cross over to the territory of graphic design and pop art, skewing definitions of what a picture is. Neither are his views on photography straitlaced, as this exciting interview with Lomography proves.

Tyler Mitchell is a young artist that, through his versatile work and photographs, has become one of the representatives of a novel, fresh wave in photography. He still enjoys directing films and truly believes in their magic.
At the time of its inception, photography was considered less a fine art and more a scientific method of reproduction. But anyone who has dabbled in the craft will argue otherwise; that there consists a very specific artistry in the photographic medium. We spoke with Luxembourg-based filmmaker Catherine Dauphin about her thoughts on this wonderful art form. Join us as she answers some of our questions about film, photography, and her short film titled "The Art of Picture Taking."
