Make a Movie by LOMO LC-A

2011-08-26 38

Here’s a short tipster on how I made a short film using shots from my beloved LOMO LC-A. Try it out yourself as its loads of fun!

What do you need?

  • 1 LOMO LC-A
  • 10 AGFA CT X100/135
  • A Girl
  • A Boy
  • & an experimental heart…

Films, whose colors and effects, are always fascinating. In addition to capturing the moment of the picture, we want to continue making it beautiful. Therefore, we prepared a lot of films. Wrote a little story. And used an LC-A to complete it.

Light and composition is of course very important. After all, the LC-A cameras and the film can’t capture motion too quickly. So the actress must slow down her movements. Photographers only had time to press the shutter.

Finally, we put the finished photos into editing software. A small animation is complete.

The Lomo LC-A+ is known worldwide for its amazing features: automatic exposure, extended ISO range, and multiple and long exposure capabilities. Get your own Lomo LC-A+ now!

    Awesome !!! Just a crazy idea : If all the Lomographers made a 1-2 mins clip, we could all combine to make a full -length stop-motion movie ;)

    @lawypop Haha, that would be so cool! All we need is a script, divided in 100 short bits. That would make a fun rumble: every contestant gets a random bit of script, and the winning submissions would make up the movie.

    really cool, take a look also to the BBC documentary on Lomography, there's a section on the Lomo music video for Gotan Project "Santa Maria" on a camera that looks like a Kalimar Action Shot 16.

    The Infallible Electric Eye

    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.

    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!

    Cinematographer Michal Dabal on the Petzval Lens

    Here’s what happens before we interview a photographer. We gush about the work though we have yet to find out the cameras and processes behind the brilliant composition or the light architecture. And even when they haven’t used a Lomo camera, we feature them anyway. But every once in a while comes a pro who uses one of our premium lenses at work and our fun cameras off-duty. This makes us mighty glad, more so when their images are good and worth sharing. We count cinematographer Michal Dabal's work among them.

    A Color Remix

    It's human nature to be restless and imaginative. The real may be interpreted as what one sees or how one sees something. For the daydreamer, a scene from nature transforms into a canvas. Suddenly a field makes room for chemical coloring, all those anachronistic streaks that somehow look right. Or else, those beautiful colors amplified or subdued to their most pictorial shades. All in the world of trial-and-process film photography.
