Get as close s possible to the objects of your Lomographic desire with the Fisheye and Ringflash .
I always take the Lomography Ringflash to a party and catch admiring glances of the public and even the smiles of women and children. With this flash the bartender will give you a free drink, and the best girl is sitting at your table. Get as close to the objects of your Lomographic desire as possible! That’s all what you need to know ! really! With this, it is possible to photograph a person as close as you want. Distance of 10 cm – it’s easy, you can lean the camera close to the nose. With the Fisheye + Ringflash – the picture is one big color nose or mouth, or eyes – is difficult to make out what’s what. I like to use multi-color filters for the flash or color ring .To get the bright colors I suggest you to put the brightest filters (red or green) from the top and bottom of the flash, because they better reflect on the subject.Blue and light green filters do not give so much brightness. The best color for the flash is red yellow green and purple. Use 400 iso film and let the light shine in!

Aside from being an immensely talented lomographer, what makes him a perfect LomoGuru is his burning desire to share his knowledge. The city where he lives is full of people who are interested in analog photography, but the lack of easy access to film and equipment poses a challenge for them to pursue their passion. To keep them motivated, Hugo organizes workshops and tours on different film photography techniques and DIY tricks. Let's give a loud round of applause to Hugo Pereira, better known in the community as zulupt, our LomoGuru from Marinha Grande, Portugal!
This article is dedicated to Bruce Davidson, one of the most important American documentary photographers and a leading figure of the Magnum agency. Recalling his photos of the Worcester Fire Department in 1999, I'll show you my coverage of Como Fire Department's public demonstration, an annual event commemorating St. Barbara.
Marked by death-defying acrobatic stunts performed by the firefighters of Tokyo, the Dezome-shiki is held every January to pray for a safe year ahead and to raise awareness on fire safety among the public.
Some photographers have an instinct for the unique. Whereas others aim to fashion the ordinary into a singular picture, these hunters are obsessed with what cannot be found elsewhere. They prize an exclusive scoop on architectural patterns, artisan quirks, and objects that stick out of an everyday scene. And when the photographers find them, they will twist and turn to get the most flattering angle. Only right for curiosities that beg to be shared.
There are many possible reasons for taking pictures. It could be to document an event, to capture breathtaking scenery, to preserve a fond memory, or simply, to have a snapshot of someone close to your heart. Whatever the reason, there's almost always a story behind a picture, no matter how significant or trivial it may be. And for lomographers, nothing beats the feeling of having that story unfold in your hand, in the form of a print. If you want a quick keepsake from that treasured moment or a snapshot of that special someone though, you can have it instantly, through Lomo'Instant Stories!
Constantly travelling, Pavel Tereshkovets has developed freedom, as well as the feeling for capturing unusual moments and locations. That freedom provided him with the possibility to enhance his photography style and introduced him to the world of endless inspiration.
When a photographer encounters a pair, an instinct rushes in, "Is this a special, intimate moment I just stumbled on?" Or else, those accidents of two objects, two birds, two swaying plants camping together especially for your photo. This might not be the case, but it's still a pleasant thing for patterns and quirks to find their way into an everyday shot.
This article, the beginning of a new series, is dedicated to the comparison of some cameras with a plain glass viewfinder, without focusing aids, except the possible presence of a rangefinder. As you can discover here, our composition depends on the selected viewfinder. Take a look!
