Have you ever wondered why the sky sometimes is blue, sometimes green, sometimes red or orange? I love taking pictures of the sky; how about you?
I like to shoot the sky, no matter if it is day or night; sunset or sunrise. One of my favorite sky photo was taken inside an airplane on a journey from Taiwan back to Malaysia. I felt lucky to be able to capture this great moment! That’s probably the time when I fell in love with the sky.
Nature has it’s way of affecting our emotions indirectly. We would feel cheerful inside when it is sunny day. No doubt, we would feel gloomy when it is cloudy. And when it is a rainy day, we would feel moody, as though something within us just want to be like rain drops. Most of the time, when I feel breathless and when my brain freezes, I look at the sky. I like how the colors of the nature express itself; whether it is blue, red or orange. Nature is an art of God, when you feel that the whole world is pressing down upon you, go out and have look at the sky; sunny or rainy, chill out and enjoy nature more.
Taking photo of a sky can be very simple, just take out a camera and click; snap. You can take as many picture as you want. Nature is always here for all of us.
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?
Our Lomographers love their Petzval and, as a result, they have taken it to the most amazing places: gardens full of green, immensely busy cities and breathtaking landscapes. Yet, sometimes, all you need is what you have right at home. Keeping family memories with the Petzval Lens never looked this good, and golfpunkgirl does it well.
Browsing through the Lomography website, you can find a lot of redscale shots, which are all done on color negative films. I asked myself if it’s possible to redscale a slide or chrome film and then cross process it. (And yes, it is.) In this tipster I’m going to teach you how to create the bloodiest homemade redscale film I've ever come across.
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!
There are many possible reasons for taking pictures. It could be to document an event, to capture breathtaking scenery, to preserve a fond memory, or simply, to have a snapshot of someone close to your heart. Whatever the reason, there's almost always a story behind a picture, no matter how significant or trivial it may be. And for lomographers, nothing beats the feeling of having that story unfold in your hand, in the form of a print. If you want a quick keepsake from that treasured moment or a snapshot of that special someone though, you can have it instantly, through Lomo'Instant Stories!
Snow-capped or covered in lush greenery, monumental or of smaller proportions, mountains create the most picturesque natural landscapes.
