Photo Stories: Planet of the deep red by hodachrome

2014-02-09 3

Welcome to Photo Stories, a new series that lives to tell the tales behind photos from the community, as told by the talented Lomographers who shot them.

Credits: hodachrome

To kick off our storytelling, our first installment for Photo Stories features an image taken by one of the most admired members of the community — the king of multiple exposures, hodachrome. Aptly captioned “Planet of the deep red,” and taken with a Lomo LC-A+, it is an image that combines water and vegetation to yield a fiery and arresting result.

Let’s hear the story behind this image from hodachrome himself.

“This is a double exposure that I photographed in my favorite lycoris field. The film was my selfmade redscale800 (camera setting at ISO200) and I used the splitzer. Upper half and lower half were not the same place, I chose different spots on purpose to give various shapes of trees into the photo. It was not too much of a sunny day and exposure was not enough but it came out with an interesting, high-contrast result. The important things are the choice of nice shapes of the trees and bright river behind them. Actually, the lycoris didn’t look well at that time but I managed to get a nice one with this idea.”

So there you have it, the story behind another magnificent photo by hodachrome. Congratulations to hodachrome on winning five (5) piggies!

If you have a story to tell behind your photo, feel free to send us a message through the Lomography Magazine LomoHome or shoot us an email. we look forward to sharing your stories.

Photo Stories is a series dedicated to sharing the tales behind your photos — from your point of view.
