LOMO Ver 2.1.1

LOMO... I think it's some sort of a culture, something really close to everyday life, something more that just taking pictures and something everyone can simply fall into.

Started of by a bunch of kids from Viennese students, who discovered LOMO Kompakt, a Soviet made cheap and easy to use camera, compared to other camera at that time, year 1991. Characteristics of LOMO pictures: Mostly OutOfFocus, garishly coloured due to plastic lens, sneaked in lights, badly over/underexposed.

Something like this:

In this sample... Yellow is very yellow, bright is very bright, dark is very dark, badly focused ( actually no focus at all ), taken with no intenstions ..... but it looks cool to me...hehehe


Anyhow, there's 10 Rules to follow:


"take your camera everywhere you go"


"Use it anytime - day and night"


"lomography is not an interference in your life, but part of it"


"try the shot from the hip"


"approach the objects of your lomographic desire as close as possible"


"dont think"


"be fast"


"you dont need to know beforehand what you captured on film"


"afterwards either"


"dont worry about any rules"

NOTE: all design above copied from lomography.com, but pictures replaced by pictures taken by me.

But for now...me still havent own a LOMO Cam yet.




Any of the models above would highly be my next purchase.... ngek ngek ngek ..... and next episode I will write a tutorial to make LOMO pics with digicams and PhotoShop... now very tired, got to go smoke. See ya....
