Lomo LC-A + Tunnel Vision Lens

2009-12-08 14

Go into the tunnel of Lomographic love with the LC-A’s Tunnel Vision Lens. It give your photos a painterly effect that cannot be duplicated.

I like the special mystic character, the Tunnel Vision Lens gives to my pics. The center of your view appears sharp, and things get further out view becomes a bit blurry and then a bit dark.

With a little magnetic skipper mount on the front of your camera (this shiny ring gives your camera also a very special design), and actively blow your images out into strikingly tunnel-bound and freakishly wide-angle shots.
But not just that, this lens could also be used for MACRO feature. If you mount the upper part of the lens, set the aperture at f/11 or f/16 (use a 400 ASA film), and get up to one inch (2,5 cm) from your subject. You can use this lens also for your Holga.

But don’t forget of to use the security strip, which comes together with the lens, especially when you turn the camera to the ground, may be the lens could be lost.

    Estonian Intersections of Sight and Sound

    Would you rather lose your vision or your hearing? As photographers, we might choose the latter without a second thought, especially while viewing the festival photos that photographer Mart Vares captured with the New Petzval 85 Lens. Still, who doesn’t love the pleasant mechanical shutter sound of an old SLR that makes us commit to analog photography? While following the Nordic delegation at this years Waves Central Europe, we caught up with the Estonian band, Würffel, whose songs leave us feeling equally delighted.

    How to Develop Photos on Stone in a Darkroom

    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!

    Lessons from Vintage Photography: People Dispersed in a Scene

    A documentary photographer cannot possibly order a crowd to disperse neatly into his frame. The thing left to do is to compose with care. Move a bit here, crop that element there, find a pillar of interest. It's a matter of playing with the tide.
