I’ve had my Fisheye Lens for only a few weeks and it’s one of my favourite tools already .
If you always wanted to have half of the world on one photo , this might be the perfect toy for you and your Diana . The lens comes with a viewfinder but I don’t use it . Whatever is around you will be on the photo anyway ( somehow .. ) , and who doesnt love surprises ??
This super wide lens makes wonderful 180-degree circular photos . Get real close ( and I mean REAL close !!) to the object and what you get is a beautifully blurred image. In combination with medium format film you get real and full sized round pictures , wonderful !!! You might wanna try overlapping fisheye-photos , I love them , it’s a nice way to do portraits . I haven’t done doubles with the fisheye lens , but this should be lots of fun , too . The Fisheye Lens is a great toy I can recommend to every Diana owner !! :-)
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.
Last week, the TEN AND ONE winners flew in from all over the world to enjoy a week of workshops and exchange about their love for photography. I had the pleasure of spending a day with them and the Lomography staff, going on one of the famous LomoWalks.
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.
What delightful achievement it would be if one can mimic the painterly strokes such as Claude Monet or Vincent van Gogh! Try nature painting with the Daguerreotype Achromat 2.9/64 Art Lens and its supreme Lumiere and Aquarelle aperture plates for one-of-a-kind bokeh and special effects.
There are hundreds of festivals cropping up in the UK over the next few weeks and the Fisheye 2 is the perfect camera to document the fun. Here are some tips on making the mos of this 35mm 170 degree camera!
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.
Khalifa Al Obaidly is passionate about photography and started taking pictures already as a child, when his father gave him his first camera. He now works for Qatar Museums as Director of Artist in resident programs and is one of our newest additions to the judging panel for the TEN AND ONE AWARDS 2017. Get to know him through this short interview!
Just like the human body, the camera experiences extreme changes during the snow. For one, the power-levels are weaker, and then there's condensation being one of the camera's winter illnesses. Here are a few reminders from us for your analogue endeavors.
Today is the first Monday of March! In some parts of the world, sunlight's already touching frozen flora and landscapes. However, things are looking hopeful as springtime approaches. Inspire yourself with the signs of life for this week's Monday Moodboard.
The mid-20th century was the peak of avant-garde art, where artists and photographers resorted to alternative means to create artworks. The photocopier was one of them, and became a creative tool between the 60's and the 80's
The TEN AND ONE Residency Week has been very intense and full of activities. From 11 to 18 November, we did LomoWalks around Vienna, guided visits to museums and magazine editorial office, a workshop, a trip to Bratislava, worked on our LomoWall and of course LomoLunch and LomoDinner. We had the opportunity to attend a Cyanotype Workshop at Lomography Head Quarter held by Michael Wuermer, a young and nice photographer and printer.
One of the most important and most talked about photographic equipment today is the camera lens. There's a variety of it. But have you ever tried going lens-less, the way photography was before? The good old days of pinhole photography.
