A while ago, I stumbled over a photo that caught my eye on lomography.com. It had a soft tinge of green, not that harsh one some slide films bring on when they’re plagued with over-exposure and cross-processing. The landscape was bathed in dark green and the sky shone in a nice turquoise. I immediately looked at the description of the photo to see which film had been used and there stood Fuji Sensia 200. Unbelievably, I started a search for more photos of this film in the photo section because I had only tried out Sensia 100 films up to then and I knew that they do not tend to green tones at all. However, the photo search confirmed the declaration and I directly surfed to eBay in the hope to find a reasonably priced offer. Promptly, I could buy a ten-pack without ruining myself and some days later I was ready to click away. I really like the results and 5 of the 10 films are gone in the meantime.

Would you rather lose your vision or your hearing? As photographers, we might choose the latter without a second thought, especially while viewing the festival photos that photographer Mart Vares captured with the New Petzval 85 Lens. Still, who doesn’t love the pleasant mechanical shutter sound of an old SLR that makes us commit to analog photography? While following the Nordic delegation at this years Waves Central Europe, we caught up with the Estonian band, Würffel, whose songs leave us feeling equally delighted.
Experimentation is the bloodline of Lomography. The nucleus of the operation is an open mind. This has made digital strides possible, but even then, the movement is still beholden to film photography. The reasons range from philosophical to practical. The scope also includes three fields that make analog photography challenging—and yes, quite the daring opposite of digital ease.
