lomo lovers vol . 6

e\nZXd\iX#]`cd#k\Z_e`hl\


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! This month we have gone a little different! It’s the new year so we thought... we want to see the new cameras, techniques or films that you are experimenting with!

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: Stephan Kaps aka mephisto19 lomo home: http://www.lomography.com/homes/mephisto19 day job: I learned breath, speech and voice teacher method Schlaffhorst-Andersen and give different types of seminars, I study fine arts at Hochschule f端r Bildende K端nste in Braunschweig (Brunswick), Germany and give workshops at the Lomography Gallery Store in Amsterdam.

How long have you been into lomography / photography: I started (officially) with Lomography in August 2005 when I ordered a plastic fantastic package. But before I already had an ActionSampler and I was always taking photos. I remember a photo that my sister took of me taking photos when I was around five or six years old. Maybe that is why I support my nephew, four, to take analogue photos if he wants to.

What cameras do you own: I do own almost all Lomography cameras (not the LC-Wide so far) next to some old Polaroids (SX-70,...), some AGFA cameras and many others. If I would list them all, the page would be full. I do not use all of them though. It is nice to have them for different situations, to choose. When it comes to the question which cameras I like most or use most I can answer it with: LC-A, Lubitel (have to use it again more often), Holga 120 GN and Diana F+. 6.


favourite picture

title. Alice in Wonderland lomography name. mephisto19 shot with. Diana + loaded with. Fuji xpro technique. cross process

7.


Favourite film: My favourite film is the OLD Agfa CT precisa when cross processed in Europe, so you get those intense blue tones.

favourite shooting locations: As I am living in Utrecht, the Netherlands, now with my boyfriend I am shooting here a lot. For example is the Dome of Utrecht one of the locations I go to very often.

Favourite Camera / Film / Accessory Combination: (old) LC-A loaded with Agfa CT so a flash is not burning the photos Holga loaded with Redscale XR (for High Quantity Multiple Exposures (HQME)) LomoKino loaded with 400iso film and the Holgon Strobe Flash

a bit about yourself: Last summer I wrote a blog post about the way I work that includes some techniques I am using. I think that explains a lot :) http://www.lomography.com/homes/mephisto19/ blog/5477-work-in-progress-in-arbeit 8.


I will also have an exhibition from January 22nd till March 24th at Kaffeebar Rossi in Hannover, Germany. I am not only taking photos, but also write text (they are not online or published) and make sound works.

where would you like to shoot where you haven’t so far? I think that every place is different every single day. You can find something special on a place where you have been a thousand times before and see nothing or only what everybody would see on a new place, so I would just like to have my eyes open and a camera ready wherever I am.

new camera, film, technique shots of the month


title. Verichrome Exposure Test flickr name. fed_v shot with. Konica Auto S2i loaded with. Kodak Verichrome Slide Film (5072) @ 3ASA Expired 1999 technique. Left shot was exposed at 3ASA Right shot was exposed at 6ASA with a Yellow Filter. * Looks like proper exposure for daylight is around 3ASA. Pretty interesting results with this film. Ridiculous saturation and contrast with a really strong blue color cast. Kind of looks like cross-processed film. I like how I can switch from Tungsten to Redscale by just adding a yellow filter. It’s like two films in one.

title. untitled flickr name. [Londres] shot with. LC-A+/VitoC loaded with. sensia 100 technique. First film swap Collaboration with Ness_Mar, Lisboa vs Madrid. Very glad with the results! :)

21.


title. Castle Canamorph flickr name. The Old Penfold shot with. Canamorph One loaded with. Fuji C200 technique. This may not be the most interesting shot but I am delighted with it. The reason being this was shot with the first DIY pinhole camera I have made. The camera was made using a candle tin and brass shim for the pinhole. Focal length is approximately 34mm, pinhole diameter about 0.27mm giving an fstop of 126. The frame size should be larger but I had to crop as part of the camera’s internals detached themselves and blocked part of the frame.

lomolovers tipster: light painting


title. -When the soul leaveslomohome. zoezo shot with. zenit 412 loaded with. 200 iso film technique. light painting

66.


playful light painting.... with the help of fun lomographer zoezo (lomohome) here’s how she created her scary light painting photos!

what I used : Zenit camera 200 iso film 2 friends 2 torches 1 orange gel tripod My garden :)

step 1: After it was pitch black outside in my garden, I set up my Zenit 412 (and B mode

camera will work just as well) on the tripod and changed the settings on my camera to B mode,

step 2: I then arranged 1 of the torches to highlight the subject on the floor and covered the torch glass with a orange gel to give it a warmer tone, the other torch I gave to my boyfriend.

67.


step 3: Then my boyfriend held down the shutter (you can expose as long as you are painting, if the background is dark) then my boyfriend started to “paint” light coming out of my mouth (making sure the light mainly shone towards the camera lens). After he finished, he turned the torch off and my friend let go of the shutter. Your light painting is complete! It’s that simple.

step 4: Now go and get your negs developed! You should be happy with your results!
