Under the sea, light drawings. I accidentally got a whole series of Lomographs of me and my friends catching the sun and under the sea!
It was our first time playing with the submarine and we had no idea what we were doing – clearly. All the shots are wobbly and the objects are unrecognisable. But I love them! Who would have thought a good place to catch some rays would be down, under the water? Having read the Fisheye Submarine's micro site tip page I thought we had it sorted, facing the lens up out of the water, always using the flash blah blah blah. Clearly I need more practise – the perfect excuse to go on holiday again! Enjoy the abstract artistic light drawings!
Lomography Team member Sarah Knoll shoots her Diana F+ regularly in low light situations. But when she got her hands on our prototype of the Diana Instant Square she took it out into the sunny streets of New York City and created a series of wonderful summer portraits.
I have come back after a week of my TEN AND ONE Artistic Residency at Lomography HQ in Vienna with my head full of ideas and projects that I would like to start and try out. By the end of the week I have a book (almost) full of tips, anecdotes and pure Lomographic love.
For the wandering Lomographer, we've got some alternative locations and destinations you might want to check out for picture-perfect travelogues. Tuck in the City of Lights is a public park with many scenic secrets hidden in plain sight.
It's been over a month since I left Vienna after spending a fantastic week with all the 2016 TEN AND ONE winners. Looking back at the photos I captured brings a smile to my face as I remember the fun memories of the experience I had with my fellow Lomographers.
"The series speaks of guilt caused by my selfish absence from my family for the past eleven years. I chose to further pursue my career far away from them. Many times I have been asked if I will return, my answer is a simple I can't."
I was given the Daguerreotype Achromat 2.9/64 by Lomography to take on my vacation to Switzerland and shoot a series. Back at home, I was able to take a couple of more pictures, before I had to send this amazing art lens back.
Photographer Antonio Castello is an old friend of Lomography and has once again taken out our mutual friend, the Diana F+ for a fun night. This time, the iconic medium format camera got to scent the air of the fashion world!
As soon as the sun goes down and soft, ethereal moonlight descends over the crowded cityscape, workers call it a day and shuffle back to their apartment blocks. While the rest of the city settles down to sleep, a myriad of multi-colored-neon lights, flickering shop signs and glaring car headlights illuminate the night.
