    The Photography of Réka Koti: Lo-Fi Blurs and Foggy Moods

    Photo travelogues are often sprightly, the forms defined and the colors sharp. Réka Koti has a completely different interpretation. A location is a basis for experiments. Nature is a double-exposure detail or a nebular extension of her model’s frock. Branches and leaves are blurred to look like paint strokes. The outcome is mysterious, and Lomography can’t help asking: What is the alchemy behind these dusky pictures?

    For The Love of The Blur

    I was still a little hesitant about blurs until what I thought was an unsuccessful shoot in Santa Monica Beach completely converted me. So my advice to you, dear shooter: embrace the unpredictability of film and enjoy the blur!

    Tunnel Vision Lens

    The tunnel vision lens is my favorite accessory. It is always attached to my LC-A+. And it will not only broaden your photographic horizon, but also add a soulful blur to your images.

    Beauty in Blur

    It is usual that most photographers like their photos sharp and crisp, in full focus of what the subject is. But then, we also have that art of blurring things and it makes photographs as beautiful as those sharp and crisp ones.

    Photos That Show Silent Screams

    Dark wisps of hair masking faces, seen drowning in silent screams, rusty, bloody hues, and vignettes. These are the works of Israeli artist Yell Saccani, who composes and expresses her innermost feelings through her photographs that channel famous expressionistic paintings.

    Finding Beauty in Blurs

    I work at a camera store near Milwaukee, WI and uncovered an old Kodak Retina on the back of a dusty shelf. As any Lomographer would do, I pulled it out, grabbed a roll of Fuji Superia 400 speed film and started snapping away.

    Sometimes, having a steady a hand isn’t all that matters when taking a good picture. So much so, that a blurry picture can often make an excellent shot. This installment of Influence or Coincidence looks at the ballet shots of Alexey Brodovitch and who of our fellow lomographers came closest to his delicate motion.

    Little Fish, Big World: Shooting with the Lomography Fisheye Baby 110

    A lens: smaller than a film canister. A shutter button: the size of an M&M. A body: it can be compared to a really fat goldfish. Despite the bad comparisons, you get the idea: the Lomography Fisheye Baby 110 is super small! But don't let it's size fool you! This little guppy makes it's way through a large ocean with amazing color and effects in the photos it produces.

    The Stories within Pictures #6: The Mystery of Acute Conjunctivitis

    In the last few weeks, I experienced some unhealthy days, panicking about my good eyesight, having terribly itching feeling in my eyes and trying not to scratch them day and night. As a lomographer and a person who can barely survive without good eyes, it was a little disaster for me, especially when I woke up with red eyes and tears falling down on my cheeks without the actual intention of crying.
