1. Exit the Void
It pays to be in the right place at the right time. This silhouette emerging from darkness and walking into the light really caught our eye. Shooting in mixed lighting situations requires a high ISO film, which makes the Lomography Lady Grey 400 120 a great choice for this photo. If you're lucky, the film backing will show up and add a cool detailed texture.
2. Discover a Secret Portal
Sometimes, the perfect subject is just right under your nose. Or, in this case, feet. The stunning reflection of trees in the puddle look like a portal to a secret forest. The next time you're out and about, keep an eye on surprise scenes like this!
3. Monochromatic Mystery
Here, light is minimal yet powerful, resulting in a somewhat creepy-but-cinematic portrait.
This portrait by Community member tomkiddo was uploaded six years ago, but its popularity is still enduring. Truly a classic!
5. Double Vision
Multiple exposures can be tricky in black and white, since details can easily blend into a confusing mess. But this photo by Community member goonies proves that it's still possible to create a cool image simply by pairing silhouettes and textures with a more detailed subject.
