You Proved It

Black and white film is an exciting way to give your photos a look and feel that ranges from raw and emotional to pretty and delicate – and you proved it!

This week we asked Lomographers to upload and tag their best b&w shots taken on nights to remember with “aint-traditional, b&w”. Then we would announce which ones were the most popular (by Likes and/or comments) among the community and friends. These are your top 3 photo choices each receiving 10 Piggy Points for their outstanding shots!

I just hope that someone from LSI notice that there is a piggy thief somewhere around and do smth about it.,,,,,

    How to Develop Photos on Stone in a Darkroom

    I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!
