To make a clever portrait just stretch it long and give me more, more, more!
This is a cool one that I stumbled upon playing with my new Diana F+, I sorta didnt know how many clicks to click when advancing my 35mm. I did like a 180 and yet when I got the pix back they were all kind of too close. The fun was though that I had been taking different portraits of the same person and therefore I got these long multiple images with the same person in 3 different poses, oh what a dream.
So I spread my wings from there and decided to try it with different color flashes, different angles, and different things. This works great with pets, and boyfriends, and stuffed animals, and drag queens, and hags, and creepy mannequins, and whomever or whatever else. Remember though that you probably need a scanner and you must use a camera like the diana or the holga that just lets you choose have far to advance before using that shutter again.
Anyways enjoy my gallery, I think it is particularly cute to print these out and frame them and give them to the person you love, its the best.
Brazil is an awesome country for traveling. There's so much to explore, each place very different from one another. It will definitely take a stretch of trips just to get to know this this South American pearl. I finished my copa tour last year in Marajó, the island of bulls—it just might be an eternal highlight for me.
The Petzval 85 and 58 Lenses remain favorites among Lomographers because of the quality bokeh, perfect for making dreamy portraits, à la classic paintings. But portraiture is more than just showing off a pretty face in a classic, vertical orientation: It's a marriage of elements. Think of it in terms of attitude and personality.
What makes an engaging image? What makes a photograph seem more like a memory than just an image? How is it able to make you feel as if you were right there, in that moment, experiencing the scene first hand?
It can be said that photography is more than just a click on the camera, it makes the moments, people and emotions live forever. This was confirmed to us by an exceptional Dutch photographer Ferry Verheij, whose photographs represent stories of all those people and places he had a chance to know.
We love a striking photo as much as the next person, but a unique point of view makes us head straight to a feature. Who should the world know more about? Who has rocked our perception of beauty, sexuality and creativity? These questions populate our notepads, and our list of photographers is quite long. For International Women's Day 2016, we whittle the directory down to our current favorites, photographers who resist labels (even the ones we give them) and dare the world to see what they see.
We're thrilled to present our new Kickstarter project—the New Lomography Daguerreotype Achromat 2.9/64 Art Lens! Inspired by the bold brass design of the world's first photographic optic, the Daguerreotype Achromat Art Lens is a versatile tool seeking the great return of dreamy imagery.
Have you been using your Lomo'Instant just for portraits and laid-back photos so far? While the the Lomo'Instant makes really cute mini-portraits, it can also produce awesome pictures in action-filled situations.
When asked to recall the moment they first became truly interested in photography, most photographers would remember the magical feeling of picking up a hand-me-down or secondhand camera, the thrill of shooting an entire roll through, and the elation upon seeing and holding their first ever set of photographs. Caleb Savage, however, had quite a unique experience. At 10 years old, he had his first taste of working in the darkroom making prints at Boy Scout camp, thereby beginning a more than a decade-long affinity with photography.
This young artist has drawn our attention with breathtaking photographs which give colour to the life around us. He has managed to show a perfect blend of nature and its harmony with people. His portraits tell stories of young people around him and different places he visited.
