Panorama Shoot-Out, Part 7: Fisheye Holga

When the colour-splash Holga came out, I knew I had to have one! It had a tripod mount and a bulb setting too – nowadays the standard for Holgas – but it wasn’t pre 2006. This one also has a glass lens, and a dedicated 6×6 gate. Lomography were selling it for a lot more …

Panorama Shoot-Out, Part 6: Diana (with Endless Panorama gate)

One of the super funky features Lomography have introduced in their Diana+ is the Endless Panorama gate. It makes it possible for you to shoot square pictures with no overlap and minimal space in between. Now that could DYNAMITE! I grabbed a couple of rolls of Fuji RMS and made my way over to Camden …

Cross Processed in E6

The other day I tried my hand at cross-processing some colour negative film in Tetenal Colortec E6. The results are remarkable! Looks like I’ve been back to 1952 for a bit. I’ve tried it the other way round before (slide film in C-41), which also looks rather funky (or shall we say lomographic?) So here …

Panorama Shoot-Out, Part 5: Yellow Holga

Logic dictates that every Holga should produce pretty much the same outcome. But then, logic and Holga don’t mix – so I went and shot a few rolls on my Yellow Holga. Maybe he’s the lucky one to win a trip to the land of beach huts in July…? Coloured Holgas not only look super …

Panorama Shoot-Out, Part 4: Diana (without a gate)

The lovingly recreated Diana+ by Lomography is the ugly duckling in my collection. However, looks can be deceiving; I’ve had some excellent results with this baby since I bought it last year.In fact, it’s slowly becoming my favourite plastic camera! Lomography have added some funky bits to the package, like the possibility to shoot 3 …

Panorama Shoot-Out – Part 3: Pink Holga

Time to check out what the contestants can do! [singlepic id=300 w=320 h=240 float=left]As I said before, the Pink Hoga is my favourite (at the moment). I love them all to bits, but the colour really does something for me. “It’s so gay”, people say – but I think it’s more like a funky breath …

Panorama Shoot-Out – Part 2: Meet the Contestants

5 plastic fantastic cameras are going head-to-head in my tests, all of them lomographic pieces  of low value. They all eat medium format film, although they can survive on the odd roll of 35mm. They’re happiest in brightest sunshine, they don’t like overcast or twilight shots, unless you utilise the bulb setting. Most of them …

Panorama Shoot-Out – Part 1: Introduction

We’re going to Miami Beach in July to finish working on the Miami Beach Huts project – I can’t wait! I thought it would be fun to shoot some wonky panoramas on medium format while we’re there, some of the Beach Huts, and plenty of others in the brilliant Sunshine State sun. But wait a …
