On the northern coast of Germany there are a few small islands which are called the “Ostfriesische Inseln”. One of them is called Norderney and it is just really really beautiful there!
I had just bought my Diana Multi Pinhole Operator before spending a wonderful week at the German coast. When I arrived on Norderney Island I was really pleased by the pretty beach. They have a very clean and inviting golden sand beach which attracts families and lomographers alike. Looking for endless panoramas? You’ll find them up there. Go for long walks on the shore, enjoy wonderful sunrises, be pleased by the silence. And then be sure to have a good cup of coffee at the “Milchbar”, located at the beach with a very pretty view over the sandy beach. Or how about some excellent food at a place called “Weisse Duene” (white dune). Don’t forget to try out one of the soups (yummy!). You can easily get there by bike. Of course this wonderful place is also located at the beach.
And then take a look at the houses “inside” the island. They are so pretty! When the sun goes down you might wanna spend some time at the “surf cafe”, a nice and trendy place with good wine and nice food.
Wilson Wong is passionate about quite a few things, and photography is just one of them. He is also a trusted gadget reviewer and lifestyle writer in Singapore and a respected key opinion leader. Hear what he has to say about shooting with the Jupiter 3+ Art Lens.
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.
Travelling like the Chinese is a tough call to make theses days, as they are discovering the planet like no time before. But going to places only the Chinese go is a great choice to make these days. One of those places is the magical island of Gulang Yu.
Berlin-based actor, pro skateboarder and photographer Conrad Bauer has a few tricks up his sleeve. Escaping the grey skies of Germany, he took the Lomo'Instant Wide with him on to the streets of Barcelona and shot some material for an upcoming skate video, what he calls "postcards for myself."
Do you long for the dreamy soft focus that only the Daguerreotype Achromat 2.9/64 Art Lens can give your photos? Grab it in the lens mount of your choice! Brass versions are now available for purchase in the shop!
This summer, Morgane from the Lomography French team spent a few days in Brittany. Among the cameras she brought with her was the Lomo'Instant Wide. Here, Morgane drives you to discover the silent beauty of the Brittany coast, its wild landscape and its ghostly boats stranded during the low tide.
This is the story of a negative and the memory of loved ones that are gone, but are still present on an old analogue celluloid film. It's the emotional power of analogue photography that lasts forever.
A year and a few months since it was introduced, the Lomo LC-A 120 continues its exciting journey around the world—from busy streets to scenic far-flung places and everywhere else in between. Here are just some of the many places and faces encountered by this trusty, compact medium format camera (and their adventurous owners, of course!) in recent months, in photographs.
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.
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!
