One Man, One Camera, One Flower & 34 Days

2010-06-08 23

Check out huge666’s short stop motion video of a growing flower made with a Lomo LC-A+ and Wide Angle Lens!

I recently did a stop motion on my journey to the Lomography Gallery Store London. I thought why not do another one, so here it is… it’s called Growing, hope you enjoy =D

Lots of people have asked me why not just do it on digital? Save yourself some money while your at it, with a better result. I say NO! I don’t want it to look perfect with the exact same lighting in every frame. I want it to be different, I want it to not be another boring growing plant video…

    anyone who would ask you why you didnt shoot this digital is just not a lomographer. i wouldn't have done this any other way..im actually in the middle of shooting the growth of a vine for a stop-motion video..and all of my shots have inconsistent available lighting. a true artist..in my book..doesn't use digital auto exposure. using your skills to work with what your given is admirable. nice video!

    From Experimental to Ordinary: LomoAmigo Martin Dietrich Tests the Minitar-1 Art Lens

    In order to escape the world of facts and figures, tax auditor Martin Dietrich discovered photography as his creative counterpart almost seven years ago. On a trip to Paris he fell in love with analog photography and the magic of film has been fascinating to him since then. But he also appreciates the benefits of digital photography. For Lomography he tested the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Art Lens on his Fuji X-Pro 1 camera. Check out Martin's photos and learn more about the founder of the popular Neoprime magazine.

    Lomo In-Depth: The Defining Role of Women Photographers in Art History

    It is general knowledge that history—ruled and written by austere patriarchy—has not been so kind to women. Photography is one of the rare exceptions; womankind has set its pervading presence and participation in photography since the birth of the camera in the 1800's. Lomography traces the role of women in photography with a special, comprehensive summary for International Women's Day.
