Have you ever wondered what is going on at Vietnam? How it looks like? How busy are the streets? What do they do for a living? This is a brief story from my short trip to Vietnam with my family.
It was at the end of last year when my family and I planned for a holiday to Vietnam (after calculating the costs; quite cheap). When we just arrived there; we were in total shock! The streets are damn busy with motorcycles everywhere and it was almost impossible to go to the other side of the road. Even the tour guide recommended us to just close our eyes while crossing! How polite Vietnamese were towards foreigners. Places of interests? You can guess; war remnants! Cu Chi Tunnel was amazing, you can even duck underground and feel how the Communists lived in that freaking hot tunnel. The museums there were super awesome cool too with many jet fighters and helicopters everywhere. Do not forget to pay a visit to Mekong River too! Hitch a small boat and flee yourself just like Rambo; you can feel like you are being watched by the Communists. Partying? No problem, Ho Chi Minh City or also known as Saigon is the best city in Vietnam to party all night long!
So what are you waiting for? Asians are waiting (even Rambo!) for you. The food, the people, the history and the country are anticipating your arrival.
Do not forget not to open your eyes while crossing the roads!
An Argentinean writer and photographer living in the Pacific Northwest, Lorraine Healy is a long-time fan of plastic cameras and is the author of "Tricks With A Plastic Wonder," a manual for achieving better results with a Holga camera, available as an eBook from Amazon.com. In this article, Healy explains how you can find ways to do street photography even if you live in a rural area.
One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.
Creating a movie, no matter how short it is, requires an extra effort. For it to be coherent, one must stay focused throughout the entire process - from planning the story, shooting the scenes, to editing the clips. We'd like to commend these lomographers for taking an extra step to keep the spirit of analog movie making alive!
In 2009, Neil Krug uploaded a commercial for Pulp Art Book on Youtube. In the comments section someone asked, “Does anyone know what kind of camera he uses or how he gets his pictures to look the way they do?” Krug was on to something. He did something wildly intriguing, one that looked to have a secret formula.
This article is dedicated to the Italian street photographer and portraitist Ugo Mulas who masterfully documented the miniature circus of the great sculptor Alexander Calder. To write this tribute I documented a recent Christmas event in my city Como, a wonderful exhibition of vintage toys in a forest of snow-covered pines. Take a look!
I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!
