I don’t remember reading instructions about using a flash with the LC-A+/LC-Wide instant back (did I miss that part?) and I was curious …
Have some wild time with crazy colors and ‘effects’ with your LC-Wide & Instant Back combo by slapping on a Colorsplash Flash on it.
You might not get what you expect most of the time because the results are always pretty strange and fun! Flashing with the color filters sometimes return you results that are different from what you might expect. For example … this one below was shot using the blue flash filter. It somehow turned out with a bright yellow ‘glow’ right in the middle. Unexpected results guaranteed! :D
Play with double exposures using different color filters (on the flash) and see the normal stuffs turning out real fun!

With my visit to the polar station of Ny Ålesund I already got a taste for the far north. But eventually I wanted to get a piece of the real thing. So I went on a journey straight to the North Pole, 90° latitude and a point, where every compass goes cuckoo crazy. It was remarkable.
Mere days before my two week adventure I spontaneously inherited Lomography’s original gem of immediate satisfaction. Armed with the most creative take on instant photography yet, I was able to see Salamanca, Oviedo, Santander, and Madrid through a rare lens.

For a special project called Ker Marie, the French photographer Lucie Sassiat goes to discover an abandoned house haunted with memories, in the middle of the Britain wild landscape. She's sharing with us her project and her impressions about our beloved instant camera, the Lomo'Instant Wide.
I like to think, that every location I have been writing about in the past years was a discovery of some sort. This story will be about the discovery somebody else made. Wendy Sloboda is maybe the coolest dino hunter of our time. She has tattoos, dreads and she found a new species of dinosaur, that now carries her name: the Wendiceratops Pinhornensis.
