Dallas is big in many ways. You have big heart, big buildings, and big fun! Lomography is coming to visit for an evening. We’ll be at Pioneer Plaza, the home of more steer sculptures than anywhere else in the world! An evening of film, flashes, and fun!
Have you been waiting to meet Lomography? Are you excited about an analogue adventure in a park filled with sculptures? So are we! Our representative Cam will be in town on Sept 7th to spread the word about Lomography and make friends.
We heard you folks had a park with 40 bronze statues that display a cattle drive. How cool is that. We figured we would invite everyone for a cool meetup but switch things up a bit. Instead of meeting in the TX heat and shooting these bronze bovines in the sun, how about we do a night shoot?
So we’re meeting at 7:30 on the corner of S. Griffin and Young St. We’ll chat and let the sun start setting. Once dusk is in the air we’ll charge our flashes and charge the cattle. So bring your film, cameras, and a few extra batteries for your flash. We’re gonna light up the night and flash some steers!
There are many reasons one visits Africa - its foreign wilderness often revered, but many forget that the place is also a home to many. Film photographer Michael Turek takes the journey to the African Safari as he uncovers the real scenes and social landscape of the world's second largest continent.
When a photographer encounters a pair, an instinct rushes in, "Is this a special, intimate moment I just stumbled on?" Or else, those accidents of two objects, two birds, two swaying plants camping together especially for your photo. This might not be the case, but it's still a pleasant thing for patterns and quirks to find their way into an everyday shot.
To build an entire reality out of pieces and fragments which used to belong to another world is a new mode of art in expressing and creating. Belgian artist Sammy Slabbinck fuses random elements of old and new images and techniques to compose a middle earth of the then and now.
Talking about the creation of the world. A big bang, meteors hitting planets, ice age and tectonic breakdancing. The world is an incredible start up and the landscapes, that were created through the elements and time. Sometimes your eyes can still see this amazing process in a timelapse. Such a mystical place is Lake Toba in North Sumatra. Or as the locals call it: Danau Toba.
Colors may be amped to look unreal, like nothing of this world. Shots may be doubled, cross-processed, post-processed, mixed up into collages. The possibilities are infinite, yet some photographers still prefer black and white. Even in 2016, it is an ode to classic values of precision and balance. Light and shadow must be one pleasing dance. And just like in a well-choreographed piece, forms are obvious or playing coy. It all depends on how you're looking.
