Cities by Night Through the Lens of the Lomo LC-A+

2013-06-08 1

We all like taking photos of our cities glowing at night, and among many a lomographer’s favorite camera for the job is the Lomo LC-A+. We have tons of LC-A+ photos in the community showcasing cityscapes around the world at night, but we’ve put together a gallery featuring some of the best and the brightest!

We all know how cities seem a little bit different by sundown. Once the buildings and street lamps light up one by one (or all at the same time), the whole cityscape is transformed from concrete terrain to a glowing metropolis. Many lomographers have been capturing their glittering cities with the Lomo LC-A+, a compact analogue wonder that lets you shoot in low light conditions, thanks to the flexible ISO settings between 100 to 1600.

For those who would like to ensure crisp and sharp nighttime snaps or experiment with long exposures, there’s the option of using a tripod and a cable release, as the Lomo LC-A+ has a tripod mount and a cable release connection.

For today’s analogue inspiration, allow us to share with you some of our fellow lomographers’ stunning cityscapes at night, as captured by the Lomo LC-A+:

    Cinematographer Michal Dabal on the Petzval Lens

    Here’s what happens before we interview a photographer. We gush about the work though we have yet to find out the cameras and processes behind the brilliant composition or the light architecture. And even when they haven’t used a Lomo camera, we feature them anyway. But every once in a while comes a pro who uses one of our premium lenses at work and our fun cameras off-duty. This makes us mighty glad, more so when their images are good and worth sharing. We count cinematographer Michal Dabal's work among them.
