    Instax Photo Collage Optical Illusion

    Have you ever accidentally pressed the eject button on your instant-back adapter before taking a photo? If so, you have likely been crushed thinking about what an incredible waste it is to have to discard these instant "blanks". Well you no longer have to let them go to waste. You can re-purpose these blanks to create cool photo collages.

  • Controlling LC-A+ Exposure with Ease

    Controlling LC-A+ Exposure with Ease

    When using LC-A+ in a backlighting situation, the main subject will be underexposed and all you get is a dark silhouette. When shot at night or in low light conditions, the results are overexposed and blurry. I believe many folks have similar experience. You can now improve things with a minor adjustment.

  • My 2011 in Analogue: An Eye's View

    My 2011 in Analogue: An Eye's View

    It's always an incredible sensation to come to the end of the year and realize that 12 months have passed so quickly. Time flies by, but we lomographers have a great chance: we shoot our lives at every moment, and have the possibility to look at the past year through our photos and travel in time. But this also needs to make a selection, of some moments and some pictures in a very subjective way (but memories are subjective anyways) and thus, my analogue year selection isn't detailed, neither per month nor of what I did during these 12 months, but just picked up some moments and pictures I liked of 2011.
