Simplicity is the keyword in today’s awesome album, but, as with many things, you’ll find that the simple things are also often the most effective.
Last year, our fellow lomographer from Linz, Austria kekskonstrukt thought of doing a black and white themed photoshoot using the Lubitel 166+, a roll of expired Rollei Retro 100, and a couple of blank masks she bought in Venice. The plan was to make everything contrast against each other, so she painted one of the masks black, made her models wear either black or white clothes, and set them against a black or white background.
It may not involve anything elaborate, but we think it perfectly shows how the simplest things, ideas, and concepts can still be amazing and impressive!
The Awesome Albums series is exactly what it says on the tin — it’s a love letter of sorts from the Editors addressed to user-uploaded albums that had caught their eye and had inadvertently fallen in love with. Please understand though, they’re really just here to express their love and nothing more.
The bravest and most creative lomographers are rewarded with astounding photographs, the results of their often out-of-the-box and extreme experiments. In this featured album, clickiemcpete channeled the famous Victor Frankenstein in creating what he calls the FrankenFilm. Find out how it's done straight from the lomographer himself!
In the hands of those capable wielding it, art can be a powerful weapon. With it, for one, creation of fantastical realms far removed from the one we live in is entirely possible. Through collage making, Eugenia Loli builds such worlds that invite the audience not only to marvel at them but also, and most importantly, to see through the hodgepodge of images to find meaning and formulate interpretations.
Among the many public events of last year's winter in my hometown Como (that I documented with my albums and with my articles), I think that the most important was the opening ceremony of the jubilee proclaimed by Pope Francis. I photographed everything with my beloved Canon AV-1. Take a look!
Speak of South Korea and, chances are, the bustling capital city Seoul and the charming island of Jeju would be the first destinations to come to mind—and for very good reasons. But while these top tourist draws are definitely worth the visit, the rest of the country is dotted with many more gems often unheard of to outsiders. Here are a few of them.
With exceptional craftsmanship and features, the New Russar+ is indeed a fine piece of photographic gear. It's then only but right to photograph only the best images with this lens. That being said, here are a few tips to help you not only find the appropriate subjects, but also properly frame and capture them.
Because here’s the thing about film photography that I doubt a digital camera can give you: Permanence, photographs that truly and literally stay with you, not just in a physical form but also in your head and in your heart.
"The overarching theme is seeing people in adverse conditions take matters into their own hands and still find the energy to go dancing or fall in love or create art," Astronautalis said of his new album. We found that pretty inspiring, so we teamed up with him for a Rumble competition based on that idea.
In prime areas of New York and San Francisco, the phrase ‘rush hour’ is always on the menu. Drive up to Reno, and the same expression fizzles. Many roads are framed by mountains and shrubbery, a picture of calm in the city. But the night makes up for the day’s stilly mood. Casinos flaunt LED signs and marquees, a treat for urban photographers.
