I combined two of my favorite hobbies – lomography and nail art – to recycle my ruined instant photos in a creative way.
Water marbling is a technique I often apply when doing my nails. It consists of filling a small cup with water, and dropping different colours of nail polish into the cup in concentric rings. The next step is to swirl the nail polish using a tooth pick. And finally, you dip the object (in this case some ruined instant mini photos) into the swirl.
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.
Combining the calm of blue and the energy of red, purple is a color that seldom appears in nature. Its rarity evokes a hint of mystery, and the color is even said to spark creativity. So why not get a little help from Lomochrome Purple to get your creative juices flowing?
The Daguerreotype Achromat Art Lens mimics the way we see the world—and beyond. From clarity and softened detail to custom, stippled backgrounds, Lomography's new optic tool gives the versatile photographer more ways to stamp on a signature style in any given photo.
In Chinese tradition, there is no festival more important than the Lunar New Year! Lomography's line of instant cameras come in a variety of film formats, with automatic and manual operation and lots of creative features to make documenting your Chinese New Year even more special.
To recreate imagination into physical works of art takes a persevering heart and patient spirit. Artist and story-teller Oleg Oprisco's photographic, visual literature of contemporary phantasms did not take an instant to be manifested in reality.
Fall has arrived and in celebration of the release of Zoe Sky Jordan's new album "Topiary" we would like to ask the Lomography community to submit their favorite photos capturing nature, trees, and foliage.
By far the oddest-looking camera I own, the Electric Eye is an auto-exposure viewfinder camera made by Bell & Howell in the late 1950s. I picked one up online and ended up with another one, that came with a very cool, retro looking carrying case, from my grandfather. It took a little while to try these two out but after running some film I found that this camera is a lot of fun to shoot with.
Sotto//Forma is an artistic project which combines istant photography with drawing: the instant snaps become a way for exploring space and expand our imagination. Let's get to know this project together with its Italian ideators: the photographer Paolo Belletti and the designer Ariel De Boni.
