lomo lovers vol . 10 jc`[\]`cd


welcome. Lomo lovers has been created by two sisters who have a passion for lomography and want to share what’s out there to fellow lomographers. We are creating monthly “inspiration books”. Different cameras, film, techniques and maybe some specialist features you name it, we just want to share it. We would like to thank everyone who has contributed to this issue, without you the book would be empty! We have also got ourselves a blog where you can reference tips and tricks to make the most of your lomography at www.lomolovers.com We love love love slide film so we dedicated this issue to just that! So here’s some great submissions...

1.


who are we?

we are two sisters from Buckinghamshire who have a passion for Lomography and vintage cameras. We both got our first cameras back in December 2010 and since then our collection has grown to over 40 between us. we love slide film and experimenting with different techniques, and we love being constantly surprised with the results that you just don’t get with digital photography. we are always inspired by the analogue community, and want to share this wonderful world with everyone.

a guide to techniques throughout the book we may highlight techniques of how the image was created here’s a rough guide to the terms

rats eye: this is where the camera is placed at ground level, it gives a great perspective and depth.

double exposure: one shot taken over the top of another usually using an mx button or finishing a roll, rewinding, then shooting on top.

home made redscale: take some colour film and put it in your camera the wrong way round, so you expose on the back of the film.

long exposure: using the bulb mode “B” you can create motion blurs. cross-processing: xpro for short. processing your film in the wrong chemicals gives your film more impact and saturated high contrast.

sprocket hole: modifying a medium format camera to use 35mm film, means you will have the image bleeding onto the sprocket holes.

coloured flash: get some coloured plastic gels, place one over the flash and experiment with colour.


panoramas: combining multiple shots of one subject to create one long overlapping image.

camera tossing: moving your camera or throw it in the air as you take the shot. giving a camera shake and motion blur.

microclicks: Overlapping, merging many exposures together so that they create a much more striking, fluid and cohesive panorama.


Inspirational lomographer of the month.... name: Steve Wrigley flickr name: captainbonobo day job: Technician at Brighton Royal Pavilion & Museums which involves anything

from changing light bulbs to handling millions of pounds worth of paintings, lighting exhibitions to fixing hoovers, jetwashing stone ramps to painting cases filled with stuffed birds. It’s pretty varied and by far the best job I’ve ever had!

your favourite picture: I have to say that I don’t think I have taken it yet. If I have to choose now it would probably be ‘Pavilion Waves’ (opposite). This was taken using my Petri Micro Compact loaded with expired Fuji Sensia 100. The wavy layer shot was taken in the Science Museum, London & the second shot is of the office. This was from a roll I shot as if doing a filmswap with myself. No planning involved.

How long have you been into lomography / photography: I was given an Agfa Optima Sensor 335 by a neighbour when I was about 6 or 7 (way back in ‘78/’79) when she saw some pictures I had taken on a family day out. She told me I had a good eye and deserved to have a camera of my own. I started shooting with my Step-Dads LTL-3 slr when I was about 11 (which I still own) and carried on until I went away to university. I have a gap of around 8 years where I grew apart from cameras (other distractions!) until I started shooting digital (Boo!) in around ‘97. It was only when I 6.

moved to Brighton 3 years ago that my thirst for film was awakened once more.

What cameras do you own: Lomo Fisheye 2, Actionsampler, Hanimex 35 FX, Holga 135BC, Vivitar Ultra Wide & Slim (modified for MX), Olympus Trip 35, 2 x Olympus XA2 (one black & one grey), Halina Telewide 110, Holga 120SF, Vivitar IC-101 (modified for MX & home made splitzer added), Olympus AF1, Vivitar PN2011, Vivitar T201 (modified for MX), Pentax Espio 120mi, Yashica Atoron sub miniature, Practika LTL3, Petri Computor 35, Konica C35, Petri Micro Compact, Olympus XA4, Olympus ‘Go 100’, Ricoh 500GX. Plus a few novelty 110 cameras & a Kodak 4000 Disc camera.

Favourite film: Has to be Fuji Astia 100F. Beautiful pinks & subtle shifts when xpro’d.

favourite shooting locations: Wherever I am, that’s my favourite. That said, a lot of my shots are taken on the way to or from work. I’m very lucky to live in such a photogenic place!

Favourite Camera / Film / Accessory Combination: I love my modified Vivitar IC101 with or without the splitzer I made for it, but I cannot possibly ignore the XA2 loaded with Astia. It’s always in my bag. It usually has some company but I never, ever leave home without it. 8.

where would you like to shoot where you haven’t so far? Las Vegas, New York, Moscow, Barcelona...the list is endless.

your favourties by others? so hard to pick just one from Marc. I am humbled and inspired in equal amounts by his work. again, impossible to pick just one from 25ThC. I owe Christos a lot in terms of my return to film. He persuaded me to buy an XA2 & I did my first filmswap with him. He is also the first person I ever became friends with through the internet. A true flickr star. I wish I could choose more than 2! There are so many inspirational shooters I have had to leave out...you know who you are...

lomolovers tipster: film soup

with Silica Gel, Water and Washing Powder


58.


creating film soup nicO (flickr) is fast becoming an expert in creating fantastic photography using film soups. With the help of Nic and inspiring film photography site coolgirlsshootfilm.tumblr. com, here’s some tips to experiment with. Film Soups are a way of distressing your film so that you get unpredictable effects. There are many ways to distress film, here is one using silica gel, water and washing powder. Materials you need: 1 x large bowl A tablespoon full of hand washing powder A cup full of silica gel A cup full of cold, boiled water You can buy silica gel from Amazon or from some larger craft stores. In these volumes it’s often used for drying flowers for pressing. I bought 500g which is enough for a lot of film soup.

59.


step 1: Make the soup! Grab a suitable container for your Film Soup bath. I use a glass mixing bowl. Add one cup of silica gel and one cup of boiled water to the bowl. Add a heaped tablespoon full of hand washing powder and stir really well.

Step 2: Add the films At this point you want to dunk some films into the mixture and leave them there for a while. You can choose any kinds of film and you’ll get different results depending on the film you choose. Place the films into the mixture and make sure they’re completely immersed in the soup. Cover the bowl so your pets/children/friends don’t drink it by accident!

Step 3: Take the films out After two or three days, take the films out of the soup. Don’t leave the films in for too long, they might get too distressed!

Step 4: Dry the films Leave the films in a warm place for a day or so. Then use a hair dryer and a dark room (or your bathroom with bin bags taped over the window…) to pull the film out and dry it off thoroughly. You might find some of the films don’t spool very well after they’ve been in the soup. Just unspool and respell them until they are running free and easily.

60.


61.


Step 5: Load and shoot! You can shoot these as normal. I usually shoot multiple exposures but experiment and see what happens!

Step 6: Develop, and be prepared Once you’ve shot a roll, drop it in the lab and see what you get back. Be prepared for failure these are experiments, after all! If they’re too blistered or damaged then reduce the potency of your mixture, leave the films in for less time. If there’s not enough warping and weirdness for your taste, try something else, or leave it in the soup for a little longer.

Step 7: Try other soup You can make a film soup out of nearly anything - see the amazing Cool Girls Shoot Film blog for some more ideas: coolgirlsshootfilm.tumblr.com/tagged/film%20soup All photography by nic0 (flickr) (these are all silica gel ones) showing varying amounts of soupiness
