Lubitel Tip

Ready for some crazy, colourful nighttime light streaks? Or maybe you’d like to capture an indoor scene without having to use a flash?

Ready for some crazy, colourful nighttime light streaks? Or maybe you’d like to capture an indoor scene without having to use a flash?

Prep up your camera on a tripod – or any steady surface, like a table – and set your camera to Bulb (B) Setting. Press the shutter button, holding it for several seconds allowing the available light to stream in. For sharp nighttime shots, you will have to keep steady, or get yourself a cable release. Careful, even a little shake will result in blur.

    additional tip:
    the cable release coming with lca+ (and that is sold seperately in lomo-shop) can be fixed with a screw so you don't have to hold it
    changing the apperature allows you to make longer exposures in brighter conditions (and of course in darker, too, but extend the exposure times!)

    I love this tip because I hate using a flash. This is one of the best galleries that's ever been posted. Beautiful work!

    A Color Remix

    It's human nature to be restless and imaginative. The real may be interpreted as what one sees or how one sees something. For the daydreamer, a scene from nature transforms into a canvas. Suddenly a field makes room for chemical coloring, all those anachronistic streaks that somehow look right. Or else, those beautiful colors amplified or subdued to their most pictorial shades. All in the world of trial-and-process film photography.

    Black and White Photography: The Forms of the World

    Colors may be amped to look unreal, like nothing of this world. Shots may be doubled, cross-processed, post-processed, mixed up into collages. The possibilities are infinite, yet some photographers still prefer black and white. Even in 2016, it is an ode to classic values of precision and balance. Light and shadow must be one pleasing dance. And just like in a well-choreographed piece, forms are obvious or playing coy. It all depends on how you're looking.

    LomoLocations: Beijing, China

    Beijing is a ready-made template for panoramic shots. Tourist baits like The Great Wall, Forbidden City and Summer Palace stretch for miles. Those who walk from end to end will have more to say. For instance, that the ground goes on to infinity. Or that they have never been so tired and amazed all at once.

    A Hunt for Curios and Wonderful Patterns

    Some photographers have an instinct for the unique. Whereas others aim to fashion the ordinary into a singular picture, these hunters are obsessed with what cannot be found elsewhere. They prize an exclusive scoop on architectural patterns, artisan quirks, and objects that stick out of an everyday scene. And when the photographers find them, they will twist and turn to get the most flattering angle. Only right for curiosities that beg to be shared.
