After my friend gave me a Fisheye camera, I began to use it to capture my daily life. Now with the new LC-A+, life will become even more fantastic.
My first camera was the Fisheye , a birthday present from a friend. Although it doesn’t have the double exposure function found in the Fisheye 2, I still love to take it with me when I go on holiday in order to capture the scenes whenever I want.
After playing around with the Fisheye , the camera which I wanted initially was a Holga . However, after reading about the LC-A+ and seeing the photos of this camera from fellow lomographers, I realise I love the vignettes which can be captured with this camera. The photos captured on this camera are also closer to real life and so I figured that it would be more suitable for taking photos daily. Therefore, when I held the LC-A+ with my hands for the first time, I cannot describe how excited I felt. Although finding the right focus is still a problem for me when using this camera, I guess I will be able to master it with further practice. Your valuable advice on how to use this camera will be much appreciated!
Below are some photos which I took with my Fisheye and Fisheye 2 . I really love the effect of double exposure. Don’t think, just shoot!
Ever since I unpacked my Lomo'Instant camera, a day hasn't gone by without me playing around with it. It takes beautiful photos. What's more, I can great abstract images with it and use my imagination to achieve various effects like light painting strokes.
What do you do when you don't have much time in a city like New York but you want to see everything, feel the vibe and be part of the community, even for a short time? Jump on a bike and enjoy what trains, buses and cabs can never give you: be part of the city. Take a camera with you to capture the moments and sights you don't want to forget. I did this with my LC-A 120 and LomoChrome Purple film.
We all know about 35mm and 120 film, right? And since Lomography re-introduced 110 film, we have another film format to play with. But in the years past, many more film formats were in use. Let me introduce you to a few golden oldies and tell you about my experiences with them. Here's how I revived my Instamatic cameras.
My wife and I suffered a family loss in October 2013 so we decided to shift things around and have a celebration of life—a wedding, actually—to associate our loss with the beginning of something positive and memorable. We have been together for nearly 13 years and after getting married, we headed off on a three-month trip to South America and a few other stops to complete a round-the-world loop back to Australia.
Everything I had fit into eight boxes and two suitcases. That’s all I had collected in my 22 years on earth, eight boxes and two suitcases. My friends and I moved to Brooklyn in the dead of winter, just after a huge snowstorm. I came from California and had no real experience living in snow. All of it was magical to me.
Armed with disposable cameras, a number of people affected by homelessness in London trooped out in the streets and captured life from their individual perspectives. That was in July; now, 13 photographs have been selected via public vote and will be featured on the upcoming calendar by Cafe Art, an initiative that "[showcases] artwork created by people affected by homelessness or are socially vulnerable."
With an expanded field of view and its ability to produce high quality images and capture minute detail, medium format photography has become the top choice of many photographers. Lomography is working hard to make sure that it keeps going with the continued production of medium format film and cameras. The current issue of German magazine FOTO HITS focuses on medium format photography. And with this rumble, we want to prove why medium format photography is king. Take your Diana F+, Holga 120, Lubitel 166+ or the new Lomo LC-A 120 and show us your best square shots!
2015 was a super exciting year for the world of creative photography. We introduced new products, paid homage to analogue photography and collaborated with like-minded folks. If you missed any of the festivities, don't worry - we promise that there will be more fantastic things to come next year! In the meantime, here's a look back into all the happy Lomography memories!
The Lomography Hong Kong Team spent a cozy evening at the opening party for an antique shop and captured moments from the event with the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Lens. The Minitar-1 Lens brought life to every image, from quick behind-the-scenes snaps and portraits, to artsy and creative shots of the antiques.
I like to make and use masks with my Lomo'Instant camera, but sometimes they are too dominant. In coming up with more subtle masks, I found several that produced an interesting, distressed look, especially when paired with the camera flash and color gel strips. They're especially good for creating Halloween-themed photos.
