Vitória, the state capital of Espito Santo, is a city full of colors, excitement, and lots of people.
Fresh fish and crabs from the mornings catches are sold on street corners and plenty of fresh fruits, such as pinapples and coconuts, can be found hanging from the trucks of wandering venders. All the food is wonderful (except for the combination of ketchup and mayonnaise that they put on their pizzas). The more common modes of transportation are motorcycle and bicycles, but be careful because they drive really crazy there!
I must say that my favorite part about this city, and Brazil as a whole, is the beautiful array of colors laid out in front of you. The buildings, clothing, cars and just about everything are colored with beautiful blues, reds, oranges, yellows and greens that are just spectacular. My one regret was not packing some slide film to be x-processed!
The latest addition to the growing Lomo'Instant family takes its inspiration from the world's northernmost capital. Clad in a gorgeous blue color palette, the Lomo’Instant Reykjavik Edition brings to mind the vast and beautiful midnight sky of its namesake Icelandic city.
Film swaps often produce the most exciting photographs. More than physically exchanging rolls, it is a collaboration of ideas and stories between two people who share the same love for experimental photography.
It is the marvel of Java, the cultural center of Indonesia: Yogyakarta, or, as we assimilated locals call it, Jogja! Jogja is full of historic sites and exudes a very adventurous yet welcoming spirit. It is a true multireligious melting pot that has seen kings and sultans come and go, and religions introduced and either went or stayed. Time has been gentle on Jogja. It's one of my most favorite cities in Asia.
August has arrived and with it brings sunshine, rain and a brand new batch of Lomography workshops and events. This month you can enjoy the classic Diana F+ workshop and a full day of exciting events on World Photography Day. Read on for full details.
A self-portrait may take root in confidence, extreme shyness or alternate bouts of each. Leanne Surfleet goes through this kind of fluctuation when the camera is all eyes. The attraction—as far as we’re concerned—is the mix of uncertainty and a kind of quiet poise. And here and there, a flash of skin that is more a mystery than full-on revelation. Even Surfleet’s portraits of other people have the same hushed invite, as if to say questions are encouraged. There we took our cue.
Pssst … we’ll let you in on a secret. Santa Claus got a little too excited for the holiday season and got his dates mixed up! He slid down the chimney with a sack full of Piggy Points* and now you’ve got to act fast. Claim your 10 Piggies and enjoy them in the Online Shop within 10 days … before Santa realizes his blooper!
Browsing through the Lomography website, you can find a lot of redscale shots, which are all done on color negative films. I asked myself if it’s possible to redscale a slide or chrome film and then cross process it. (And yes, it is.) In this tipster I’m going to teach you how to create the bloodiest homemade redscale film I've ever come across.
Speak of South Korea and, chances are, the bustling capital city Seoul and the charming island of Jeju would be the first destinations to come to mind—and for very good reasons. But while these top tourist draws are definitely worth the visit, the rest of the country is dotted with many more gems often unheard of to outsiders. Here are a few of them.
Summertime in the city means finding cool ways to beat the heat! Don't miss our exciting roundup of events in August including a Double Exposure workshop, an exciting scavenger hunt around the city with Hypeist, and several exciting gallery shows. See you there!
A popular quote by photojournalist Ted Grant goes, "When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in black and white, you photograph their souls!" Indeed, the lack of vibrant color forces the viewer to see beyond what is on plain view and recognize the atmosphere surrounding a photograph. In this post, we've handpicked black and white shots taken in various situations and exhibit different moods.
