    American Southwest Landscapes in Turquoise XR

    How do you bring a fresh perspective to a landscape that has been photographed from every possible angle? Using a brand-new film, of course! With this goal in mind, I loaded some LomoChrome Turquoise XR into my Nikon 35Ti and went on a major trip across southern Utah and northern Arizona.

    Photographer Makes Tintypes Out of Old, Rusty Cans

    While the "tin" in tintype gives a clue on the taking medium of the age-old photographic process, it seemed to have sparked an interesting concept and idea in photographer David Emitt Adams. Take a look at his interesting work after the jump!

    The Power of Friendship and a Little Canonet: Breathtaking Grand Canyon

    Last winter (Dec. 2011), a friend and I took a trip to Arizona. I thought I'd take my mom's old Canonet ql17 gIII and snap some pics, do something different. Little did I know, that the rangefinder would throw me head first into the world of analogue.

    Arcosanti: High Concept Architecture in the Low Desert

    Arcosanti is a colony in Central Arizona devoted to building and testing the concept of "arcology". The worthiness and success of arcology is a matter for debate. What is beyond debate however, is that it is an awesome opportunity to shoot a few rolls when you're in the southwest. Take a look at this futuristic throwback and tell me what you think.

    Grand Canyon National Park (Grand Canyon, Arizona)

    One of the 7 natural wonders of the world, the Grand Canyon is a location that you must visit. As part of our roadtrip through Southern California, Nevada, and Arizona, one of our major stops was the Grand Canyon. This was my second trip to the great landmark (my first was as a kid). The first time I visited as a child I did not appreciate what I was seeing.

    Lomographer kdstevens Shoots With A Petzval Lens

    What's made of brass, takes photos, and is 130 years old? Why, an original Petzval lens, of course! Lomographer @kdstevens tried his luck with the archaic optic instrument on a 50-year-old camera with 20-years-expired film and it resulted in a great photo!

    The Wave

    This little photographic jewel is a bumpy drive and a long, hot hike in the Paria Canyon-Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness, near the border of Arizona and Utah. You can only get in by winning one of the twenty daily permits by lottery, but it will please the hell out of the inner workings of your cameras.

  • Ried Park Zoo

    Ried Park Zoo

    This is not only a Zoo, but a park with several ponds, a dog park, little league baseball fields, Colorado Rockies practice field, golf course, tennis courts and public art centre (including public darkrooms). Yes folks this is the ultimate Lomographic location. You can go see the exotic animals in the zoo and later go to the ponds and feed the aquatic fowl. Pay a buck or two and take a little train ride around the park while your dog plays with more of its own species in the dog park. Pause for a chat with the old man with the metal detector searching for rare tokens and other precious metals. When you're done, head to the dark room to reveal what your camera thinks that you need to take home as memories. There is so much to do here that you can certainly revisit again and again.
