Testing the Lomography DigitaLiza Max with images from the Lomo LC-A, 23 November 2022

On my first outing with the Lomo LC-A I used one of the expired (c. 2002) Konica VX100 films set at 50ASA. Although I obtained some images, the negatives were very thin, so I thought I would double check with a new and unexpired roll of XP2. I took a series of images with theContinue reading “Testing the Lomography DigitaLiza Max with images from the Lomo LC-A, 23 November 2022”

A little experimentation with image stacking, 10 November 2022

It was a lovely day, and perfect weather to take out the ‘broken’ Olympus Pen mirrorless camera and the Lomography Experimental Lens Kit and try a little image stacking.  Since I had last been out I bought a variable neutral density filter and made an adaptor to fit this to the front of the standardContinue reading “A little experimentation with image stacking, 10 November 2022”

Experimentation with image stacking, 18 September 2022

As I was out anyway, and the weather was a little cloudy, I thought it might be nice to take the Olympus Pen and the standard lens from the Lomography Experimental Lens Kit and try a little image stacking , making multiple exposures on a single digital image. 

Experimentation with image stacking, 17 September 2022

It was such a lovely day that I thought it might be nice to take the Olympus Pen and the standard lens from the Lomography Experimental Lens Kit and try a little image stacking, making multiple exposures on a single digital image. 

A little experimentation with image stacking, 1 August 2022

As planned over the weekend, on Monday I wanted to take the Olympus Pen mirrorless to the beach and try a little image stacking, making multiple exposures on a single frame. This is possible on the Olympus with the Experimental Lens Kit, which I had bought specifically for this technique. By setting the shutter speedContinue reading “A little experimentation with image stacking, 1 August 2022”

Taking the Lomo LC-A out for a test drive in Águas Boas, 03 July 2022

When the Lomo LC-A arrived it contained what I thought was a part used film. Sadly, when it was developed it turned out that the whole film had been completely exposed to light and it was blank. It was a lovely sunny day, and an opportunity to load the Lomo LC-A with one of theContinue reading “Taking the Lomo LC-A out for a test drive in Águas Boas, 03 July 2022”

Stuck in a car park in Gaia, 20 June 2022

Waiting in a car park in Gaia. There was little else to do apart from bringing  out the Olympus Pen E-PL1 and the Lomography Experimental Lens Kit and the full spectrum Lumix DMC-TZ8 for some industrial infrared. 

A day out in Porto, 20 June 2022

Out for a lovely day in Porto with the Olympus Pen E-PL1 and the Lomography Experimental Lens Kit.  After a wet start it was perfect for some #urban and #streetphotography, or just for being a tourist.  #body, #camera, #cameras, #digital, #digitalcamera, #epl1, #mirrorless, #microfourthirds, #olympus, #olympuspen, #shittydigital, #broken, #urban, #Porto, #building, #fisheye, #kit, #lens, #lomography,Continue reading “A day out in Porto, 20 June 2022”

Lo-Fi: Taking the broken mirrorless camera and the experimental lens kit to Aveiro, 18 June 2022

After a test run yesterday it was time to take the Olympus Pen E-PL1 and the Lomography Experimental Lens Kit to Aveiro.  My experiment was short-lived. After four or five nice photos, just enough to whet my appetite, the camera died. Thankfully it was just the battery and I’m all charged up for a possibleContinue reading “Lo-Fi: Taking the broken mirrorless camera and the experimental lens kit to Aveiro, 18 June 2022”

Lo-Fi: A test run with the broken mirrorless camera and the experimental lens kit, 17 June 2022

A test run in the woods with the Olympus Pen E-PL1 and the Lomography Experimental Lens Kit.  First attempts at in-camera multiple exposures and image stacking (and one failed microclick ‘panorama’).

Lo-Fi: The broken mirrorless camera and the experimental lens kit

Who on earth would buy a broken mirrorless camera? I picked up this Olympus Pen E-PL1 from Kamerastore with broken image stabilization. I wasn’t looking for anything perfect but I recently discovered the Lomography Experimental Lens kit and it looks like it might be an interesting project. I’m thinking freelensing and a possible future conversionContinue reading “Lo-Fi: The broken mirrorless camera and the experimental lens kit”

#OldCameraChallenge: The Lomo LC-A, where it all began

Today my model of the camera that started off the whole Lomography movement arrived, the Lomo LC-A. I hadn’t actually planned to purchase a 35mm camera, as I feel I have enough cameras (from 110 to 120/620) to keep me busy for a good while. However, I recently learned of ‘EBS’ photography, where both sides ofContinue reading “#OldCameraChallenge: The Lomo LC-A, where it all began”

#OldCameraChallenge, the Agfa Preisbox (Part 2)

On a cloudy day I took out the Agfa Preisbox loaded with Lomography Redscale film. The subject for the day was Pole-arity, I felt that the cloudy skies with electricity poles would complement the Redscale film adequately.  The Preisbox was a joy to handle, compared with the stiffness of the Kodak Brownie, and I reckonContinue reading “#OldCameraChallenge, the Agfa Preisbox (Part 2)”

#OldCameraChallenge, at the Feira da Março with the Agfa Click-1

On the first weekend of the Feira da Março in Aveiro, we took the Agfa Click-1 and some Lomography ISO 100 Colour film to the fairground for some multiple exposures and microclick panoramas. #Agfa, #Click-1, #Camera, #classic, #film, #OCC22, #OldCameraChallenge, #old, #photography, #Retro, #vintage, #Lomography,

In Aveiro with the Lomography Diana F+, 13 October 2021

Took the Diana F+ to Aveiro. Loaded a roll of Ilford XP2, a black and white film that is processed in C41 chemicals. It was the first time I had ever used it, and I was impressed.  I had some difficulty seeing the frame numbers on the paper backing  and lost the first three frames,Continue reading “In Aveiro with the Lomography Diana F+, 13 October 2021”

Aveiro in Colour with the Lomography Diana F+, 13 October 2021

The next film loaded into the Diana F + was a roll of Kodak Portra 400 colour film. I found this harder to control than the XP2, and there were fewer successful shots. It was apparent that this is a very light hungry camera, and a few images were muddy and underexposed. CLearly, I have aContinue reading “Aveiro in Colour with the Lomography Diana F+, 13 October 2021”

First outing with the Lomography Diana F+, 8 October 2021

First outing with the Lomography Diana F+, 8 October 2021Ran through my first roll of film in the Diana today. Success was mixed, in some cases exposure was correct,  in others not so much. After the luxury of a digital camera for so long, having to suddenly think about exposure and aperture again was …Continue reading “First outing with the Lomography Diana F+, 8 October 2021”
