A Lot of Beautiful Light

2012-12-02 16

Some people hate it, while some people don’t. The measure of light in a Lomograph when it is too much might be a mistake but worry not for it can also be really beautiful!

Over exposed Lomographs can really be a drag sometimes. When you’ve pushed your aperture too high and a lot of light seeps in, then that means a lot of tones and a splash of washed colour! But in this wonderful world of analogue, over exposed Lomographs can also be the most beautiful!

That’s why in this week’s gallery post, we have decided to showcase 50 amazing over exposed Lomographs in our Community! Enjoy!

    @mayeemayee thanks for including my pics. mainly the ice-mobile because i really like this shot a lot just because it is so overexposed. i have another correct exposed shot of it with another cam and it´s not looking half as good ;)

    Thanks :) when I got the negatives back from the lab, I was really sad that they were that much overexposed, and thought that I could throw away the whole film. But after scanning, I loved the effect! And seeing this amazing gallery shows me that I'm not the only one :)

    Some great inspiration here. The great thing about film is it forces you to look at the results. You can't chimp and immediately delete an image. Its always there and can often surprise.

  • The Infallible Electric Eye

    The Infallible Electric Eye

    By far the oddest-looking camera I own, the Electric Eye is an auto-exposure viewfinder camera made by Bell & Howell in the late 1950s. I picked one up online and ended up with another one, that came with a very cool, retro looking carrying case, from my grandfather. It took a little while to try these two out but after running some film I found that this camera is a lot of fun to shoot with.
