weird wall, amsterdam

took this in amsterdam about a month ago. i'm not sure what message the wall is trying to give, but it's still very lomogenic. i'm also happy with the red lightleaks. the photo was taken with the lubitel 166 on an expired kodak GPH100 film.

i am these days home in norway, but i'll be moving to ho chi minh city in vietnam the 8th of august. have no idea how it is there with photolabs etc, but i really hope i'll be able to get a hold of a good negative scanner and find a good lab for development so i can keep this blog going. i'm sure there'll be tons of lomogenic things to shoot there!

i've also been really into urban streetwear lately, so check out this shop

flatiron building, nyc

another one of my new york lomos, this time of the famous flatiron building. it was originally called fuller building, and is located at 175 5th avenue. the building was finished in 1902, and was then one of the tallest in manhattan.

the picture was taken with the lubitel 166 at f/22 and 1/60 sec exposure on velvia 100 film, cross processed.

holga d - the digital counterpart

the indian designer saikat biswas has designed this conceptual digital camera called holga d. my first impression: it looks amazing! the design is extremely clean and fresh, and it is just as functional as it is beautiful. the whole idea behind the camera is to make a digital version of the holga while keeping the things we love about the analogue version: the vignetting, the light leaks, the square format, AND the agonizing wait to see your photos (the backside of the camera is completely clean, with no digital screen).

another extremely innovative feature with the holga d is that the top panel can be removed and turned around, making it possible to switch between "right-hand photography" and "left-hand photography". on the downside I have to mention the missing viewfinder, and even if it would make the camera a lot more "advanced", I would love to see a feature where you could choose different kinds of film (color positive, bw negative, expired films etc etc). even the iphone has an app that does this, so it should definitely be possible to get a similar software in this little beauty.

with this hipster camera, make sure to also get some fresh clothing and fashion to go along with it!

grand central, nyc

while in new york, of course I had to stop by grand central station (which actually is called grand central terminal) on 42nd street. even though it was in the middle of the day, the terminal wasn't too busy. this picture is scanned from a cross processed velvia 100 negative. it was shot with lomo lubitel on aperture f/16 and 1/15 sec exposure.

freaky figure

i saw this doll (or whatever it is) in amsterdam, and had to take some shots of it. for some reason I think it looks really creepy. both are cross processed velvia 100 film, so it is strange how different the colors turned out. not really sure which one i prefer, i think they both turned out kinda interesting.

supersize me, guitar edition

i have no idea why, but there's something about oversized stuff that makes people go mental. just think of the "funny" sunglasses that are made gigantically, or the massive lighters they sell on the beaches in thailand and spain and every other vacation place. and of course, the same "humor" is what drives this dude, who I spotted close to times square in new york. the songs he played were boring, and I don't think his technical skills very anything to write home about, but hey, his guitar is fucking massive!!

picture is taken with lomo diana on fuji provia 100, cross-processed, and scanned in greyscale (scanner didn't understand the cross processed film)

beautiful strangers, nyc

new york is a city with heaps of great-looking people. i tried to do some lomo portraits of interesting people i met while i was there, but unfortunately all the portraits came out underexposed. i still think they are interesting shots, and the people look great.

it's been a little while since i uploaded anything, because a lot has been happening the past week. one of those things was the awakenings festival in the outskirts of amsterdam. awakenings is a massive techno and electronic music festival arranged every year in the end of june. this year the festival celebrated its 10 year anniversary with names like gui boratto, james holden, dave clarke, loco dice, richie hawtin, raresh, luciano, adam beyer and many may more. it was an amazing day with perfect weather, 40 000 beautiful people, and a bangin atmosphere.

here are some of the shots I took with my lomo diana during the day. they are all shot on fuji provia 100 film, and cross-processed. enjoy.
