Doubles with Flowers: The Flower Power!

2

Back to Flower Power without heading back to the 60´s. Take a look and see how can you make your lover or your boring photos turning into blooming and beautiful life. Right after the jump!

It´s one of the most common “objects” used in Lomographic Doubles. Well, at least they´re used a lot of times by me. Flowers are the center of beauty, it´s beauty nature compiled in small and colorful packages. It makes us wanna smile and give us another motivation to face our routine. That really does happen to your photos too, they become more alive and its given another sense to it. Try it out!

You can fill up the black spaces of your silhouettes with flowers. It´s Flowers Vs. Black, it´s Good Vs. Evil! This is a technique that I use often, and I always like the results. I often use it with branches too. Try it both! I usually use the same ISO in this kind of doubles.

But here you can try another thing too. Use your film ISO and shoot something against the sun. After that, turn on the MX button (or whatever your camera does), double your ISO and shoot some flowers. Don´t forget to shoot them with full light. Well, doubling ISO will permit that your flowers will appear mostly in the dark area and not so much in the area around it.

Besides silhouettes you can put flowers wherever you want. Don´t mess with ISO and put your flowers in statues, faces and monuments. Use real flowers, fake flowers, etc. If you see some tiny little flowers and you want to photograph them, be careful with your focusing. One time I blurred it all because I wanted to approach the maximum I could, so the flowers could all fit in the photo. It´s a mistake… or not! I kind of like that photo.

See you in the next article!

    A Color Remix

    It's human nature to be restless and imaginative. The real may be interpreted as what one sees or how one sees something. For the daydreamer, a scene from nature transforms into a canvas. Suddenly a field makes room for chemical coloring, all those anachronistic streaks that somehow look right. Or else, those beautiful colors amplified or subdued to their most pictorial shades. All in the world of trial-and-process film photography.

    Travel Stories: The Bolivian Highlands by lonur

    My wife and I suffered a family loss in October 2013 so we decided to shift things around and have a celebration of life—a wedding, actually—to associate our loss with the beginning of something positive and memorable. We have been together for nearly 13 years and after getting married, we headed off on a three-month trip to South America and a few other stops to complete a round-the-world loop back to Australia.

     Inspiring and Daring Women in Contemporary Photography (Part I)

    We love a striking photo as much as the next person, but a unique point of view makes us head straight to a feature. Who should the world know more about? Who has rocked our perception of beauty, sexuality and creativity? These questions populate our notepads, and our list of photographers is quite long. For International Women's Day 2016, we whittle the directory down to our current favorites, photographers who resist labels (even the ones we give them) and dare the world to see what they see.
