Holga 135bc + Lego

2012-11-20 6

Holga 135bc + Lego “Modification”! Basically this modification allows me to grip things like a CD or cardboard (and loads of others things to be able to use as a filter)

While browsing through random old cds and dvds, I found some empty ones and got curious how photos will turn out to be by using them as filters! The idea came to me as the reflection from the discs might give a glimpse of the camera I am using. So the photos might have the reflection of the camera itself! and i can try both sides of the discs as they have different colours! ==.== Furthermore, i shot with this filter with my first roll of redscale! Can’t wait to see the results…will post them when i finally develop them after i finish the roll :D

Here are the photos of the modification:

This serves as a grip for the filters eg. CD/DVDs/Glass/anything!

The shots did not turn out as I have expected(I was just getting started on lomography back then) but the effects were quite interesting!

Then, I removed the CD, and used the grey piece which was used to grip the CD and put it right in front of the Holga Lens (fits just nice!)

This is one of the ladies at SG Lomo Gallery Store, but I forgot to adjust the focus and now I don’t even know who it was anymore =(

Anyways, If anyone of you have any lego pieces/CDs lying around, why not give it a try? =D

Have a nice day and Lomo on!

    How to Develop Photos on Stone in a Darkroom

    I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!

    Photographic Pairs

    When a photographer encounters a pair, an instinct rushes in, "Is this a special, intimate moment I just stumbled on?" Or else, those accidents of two objects, two birds, two swaying plants camping together especially for your photo. This might not be the case, but it's still a pleasant thing for patterns and quirks to find their way into an everyday shot.

    Black and White Photography: The Forms of the World

    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.

    Afterimage: When Abstraction Meets Light Painting

    A flash here, a flicker there. An afterimage is an optical illusion and reoccurring phenomenon resulting from a brief exposure to a bright light source, such as a camera flash. What's even more fascinating than experiencing this illusion is discovering that your camera is able to mimic its effect! Check out these mysterious afterimage-like light paintings from our online community.
