Sooo, is anyone into lomography ? I used to take a lot of photos around 2010-2012 with my good old fish-eye (just a reminder, it has no usable eyesight, no tunable parameter)[EXIF data available.

Loved mine... ended up leaving it on the roof of my car and watched it get ran over in my rear view.

>>3468449What is lomography?
>>3468463Anon probably thinks you need a very specific kind of camera for it.
>>3468463>>3468475Not really (even though you probably won't do lomo with a MK3)But, random and shitty cellphone pics don't count as lomography wth (pic related, NOT lomography)[EXIF data available.

>>3468463Lomography is just shitty blurry pics.
>>3468485You forgot to mention it’s also a scam to sell shitty toy cameras at 20 times their value
>>3468485Hm not really, for me it's a picture taken with a cheap film camera with few or no settings, and pictures that are not much preparedJust dig out your plastic toy, shoot and move on>>3468494Do you know about those chinese website ? You know, the ones that sell anything at very low price ! You can get a film camera for less than 5$
>>3468496Do you know about that official Lomography website? You know, the one that sells the same chinese plastic for hundreds of $$$! That’s the scam I was talking about.

>>3468499Yeah I know, I do have my Fish Eye from them (costed me 30€ 10 years ago I think)
>>3468499I mean, I don't blame them to exploit their fame around hipsters and all, that's a smart choice from themJust don't buy their stuff (or only the cheap ones like the first edition of the Fish Eye)
>>3468499I suddenly understand who that Yashica branded piece of crappie was for.

>>3468463>What is lomography?a fucking gimmick
>>3467698Lomography is just true photography sold as a hipster novelty. Your camera doesn't have to be Lomography-branded to do it, and it doesn't have to be a moldy 120 folder either.Skip the brand, embrace the idea.
>>3472445This. Me and my sister were shooting double exposures on our Minoltas and Canons and making film soup with Fujica 400 back before we even knew what lomography was. In high school we developed C41 color rolls with the D76 and vice versa just to see what would happen and how it would come out.I even had an old pentax point and shoot that I picked up at yard sale for $3 and cut up the seals in to get light leaks. Its not about the label or name of the game, its about embracing the enjoyment and creativity of the art.
>>3467698I like the idea but let's face it, most of what you find is the same washed out, cross-processed "look at my cool friends being zany" hipster shit.>>3467718Absolute kek.>>3468406>>3468407>>3468408You just have alzheimer's or misinterpreted Daido Moriyama's concept of bure.>>3468463It's a set of rules for shooting. https://www.lomography.com/magazine/335803-the-10-golden-rules-of-lomography-simple-use-film-cameraI'm not sure if it resulted from hipsters trying to fit rules to their shitty pics or if it started as a genuine movement that got taken hostage, but it's just a sales pitch now.>>3469016Jesus yes. What a shit show.
>>3472452Got some pics to show us, my man? I'm kinda interested. Sounds like you and your sister had a knack for experimental photography.
>>3472618Oosh. I would love to share the best ones but all my shit was scanned into my parents PC which is still at their house. I dont have all of the prints because I did lose a lot from a hurricane 2 years back, but I can post some of what I still have. Also sorry for the terrible quality. I typically use the scanner at work to scan my photos, so this os the best I have on the fly. But I can definitely bump this thread with what I do still have. >pic related was some black and white that we developed with C41 processing. I think it may have been a neopan 400. I can entirely remember.
>>3472674I know the quality is shit, but I am more posting so you have the idea>film soup that I made with the same camera that I cut up the seals in. It was just a cheap canon point and shoot that I had and used a lot until the motor eventually shit the bed. Notice the water smears from the film
>>3472680Same camera. Light leaked very nicely and once you had an idea of the pattern, it wasnt hard to work around it. Enjoy my ex girlfriend in these shots
>>3472681More light leaks from from a sunny day. They were definitely more intense. Infact, I think this was the last roll I ran through that camera before it bit the dust.
>>3472684Lastly, Some doubles from my AE-1 Program that I captured. Like I said, dont need anything special to have fun. I cant find them, but I also went around a couple years during Christmas and photographed Christmas lights but way out of focus. The results were pretty cool how it was like huge colorful orbs that washed out much of the photos but still left residues of the background. Also just to rant, what burned me the hardest was when me and my sister took photography together in High school, the teacher absolutely shit on us because we werent doing photography right. He was very old school but didnt even shoot film. I would be lying if I said he alone didnt almost kill the hobby for me.
>>3472688Unfortunately he did get to her and after that class, she pretty much stopped shooting with me. I am trying to get back into it because the past 3 years I havent been fully invested, and I am hoping to get her back into it too. I miss the bonding more than anything desu
>>3472674>>3472680>>3472681>>3472684>>3472688Thanks anon. Pretty cool stuff. It always baffles me how people teaching something that's supposed to be creative can be so rigid in their thinking. Hope you manage to have your sis find the spark again.
>>3472688I like the 4th one
>>3467698is there a difference between lomo and digishit?
>>3472724Thanks and same. Thats pretty much the American education system though. If its not what they classify as correct then its not right. Period. I am hoping its been long enough too that she can find it again. I know the reintroduction to me at least has been very much like the first time again
>>3472724>It always baffles me how people teaching something that's supposed to be creative can be so rigid in their thinking.Because they're not trying to teach creativity. They're trying to build skills like how to use the camera, establish at least a basic understanding of color theory, pattern recognition, and composition techniques. It's taught as a craft. If you do anything creative with the skills you develop is up to you, but it's their job to ensure that the skills are developed.
>>3473064That's certainly true and I understand that. But a good teacher is capable of expressing that to their pupils and make it clear that they need to take a step back before they can move forward. And if they witness an eagerness to experiment and bypass certain steps they should attempt to steer that positive energy instead of punishing it. They also need to have a certain level of trust in their students and understand innovation comes from curiosity and trying unconventional things. Unfortunately there's very few good teachers out there. For most the rigidity in my experience is not the result of some Karate Kid "wax on, wax off" philosophy where having students repeat the basics suddenly leads to insight and skill. It's more that most teachers are lost and cling desperately to what they know and their materials because anything besides that is out of their comfort zone, and their bloated egos won't let them admit they don't know everything, or always know best.When my mom went to take painting classes the teacher would demand things be done in a certain style, which simply didn't fit her. So instead of explaining that it's a study to learn techniques and explain what would be gained the teacher barked down all deviations from his instructions. When I took Japanese classes my teacher panicked and asked I didn't write kanji we hadn't learned yet, because I would "do it wrong" (stroke order), not understanding that I had learned them on my own and was diligent enough to learn them right. Even when I explained that she remained reluctant.For most teachers the ideas that their students might have a fresher look on things than them, that students don't entirely depend on them like baby birds being fed morsels and can learn on the side, and that they ought to help people reach things rather than mould them, those ideas are unbearable. Because it means relinquishing some control and most human beings are too petty to do that once they're given an ounce of it.
>>3473181In fact, the vast majority of teachers I encountered in life were exactly of that nature. To the point that studying turned into something disgusting to me that was associated with resentment and was done with the highest reluctance. A few exceptions here and there they were incapable of explaining the "why" of things, and the "how" only poorly, to the point that I was a student in my twenties before it actually occurred to me what the point of mathematics really is. I've learned to distrust the guidance of others and prefer to rely on written materials by the true masters of their craft, my own thoughts and online discussion.I'll very happily spend hours learning obscure subjects and putting in the work as long as it's by choice and at my own pace. The moment there's homework, deadlines and tests I freeze up. The more drone-like people will do just fine under that sort of tutelage but anyone with a creative heart gets broken by it. You can't possibly imagine how many inquiring minds have been trashed by this "shut up and do as I say" mindset in teaching. Just typing this up now makes it painfully clear to me how many problems with attention I have that stem from this bullshit. Good thing I grew up shortly before it became the norm to stuff kids with amphetamines if they don't fit themselves to this perverted system, or I'd also be a zombie to boot.Bah, I'm too disgusted to go on. Your pictures have soul and passion, anon. They're not copies relying on faults to give them character, like what hipsters produce, they're lovely experiments. Don't let that get taken from you by others' stupidity and shortsightedness. Tell your sis, don't let her spirit get crushed.
>>3473181>>3473189Thanks anon. That was an extremely comfy rant that I completely agree with and I very much enjoyed. It really means a lot to me that you enjoyed what we put forth. I am supposed to go up and visit my sister (she lives 2 hours north of me) this weekend and I fully intend to throw my second SLR in the bag with a couple extra rolls to let her use. I am sure I can reignite that spark in her again. I havent shot in my free time in almost 3 years beyond when it was family event or expected of me. But this thread is really giving me an old look on what I was passionate about and I really am excited for what the future holds.>had my mom email me one of the Christmas photos[EXIF data available.

Literally just developed this exposure and others today from a roll that had been sitting in a holga for at least four years. I mostly use instant film which is also “lomography” in a sense but damn, I do love medium format.
>>3473181>>3473189This, so much. I could rant so much about teachers but I'll spare you. I'm free from them now and learning more than ever. Lot's of photography youtubers and such are the same way. They have their own subjective style and the closer to that you are the better they see you. They also often demand the impossible, trying to weasel around and not say "buy better gear".[EXIF data available.
