Just Like Sand in Your Lomograph

2013-02-03 12

Some people hate it while some eventually develop a love for it; the sand-like texture in your Lomographs that make you say it is truly analogue.

Ah, yes, it is grain! The grain in your analogue photos that are brought by various photographic reasons like source of light or sensitivity of film. Despite all of these, we Lomographers are an appreciative bunch that we just can’t help but love this analogue magic!

And with that we show you 50 analogue photos with obvious grain. They are lovely, I tell you! Enjoy everyone!

    @mayeemayee I like using fast film especially to get the grain. Black and white grain is my favourite! www.lomography.com/homes/adam_g2000/albums/1882739-very-exp…

    I'm also a fan of grainy photos. It gives them personality and makes them stand out from digital shots. Thanks for picking one of my shots, I feel loved when my shots are noticed!
