Month-by-month I’ll pick up one Lomograph and write a brief Tipster on, and anything associated with my feelings towards, it. The first article features a December-photo. After the jump, I’ll introduce you to a snow-filled photo that emulates the winter season.
This Lomograph was shot on a heavy-snow night with the Lomo LC-A. I used a tripod and shot with a flash light. As a result the falling snow was captured, which turned into a magical and profound image. You might think it’s hard to attempt, but it’s actually not. It’s simple, shooting with the two bits of apparatus. Here’s my brief intro. on how to shoot for the above image:
Set the tripod and attach a cable release to the camera. Be careful not to get the camera wet.
Fix the camera’s position. At this time I chose this tree as a subject which I thought had the most beautiful shape.
Press the shutter button with the cable release. Auto-exposure or bulb mode photography is ok. (Refer to this Tipster for in-depth info. for fantastic ways of shooting the night world).
Try the flash light (strobe) if it’s snowing. You can capture the falling snow in your photos!
Winter photos, especially those filled with snow, always provides a kind of “flavor of the season”. Once it snows the common scenes we experience in everyday life become completely amazing. And it’s no doubt a great time to enjoy Lomography! When it snows, whether at night or durning the day, don’t hesitate to go out and shoot the wonderful snowscape!

This article is dedicated to the Hungarian-American photographer Cornell Capa, brother of the famous Magnum reporter Robert, and to his great humanitarian and social contributions in educating and changing the world. Capa's photos depict genuine human feelings, hope, and solidarity, and avoid commercial cynicism or disinterested formalism. I write this tribute facing a delicate argument: mental disability.
