Anyone in here a lomographer?

Asked by judochop (16094points) December 22nd, 2008

I own a green holga and the Diana F+. Anyone have any shooting tips? I am about to try a 20 minute exposure in the snow. Pinhole or not to pinhole, I guess that is the question.

I guess I should post a link eh? (smacks self in head)

Check it out! The photos you get from all the cameras are little different than most. Some leak light, others vigenette, some take really fuzzy pics..You never know what your gonna get.
I was hoping to run into someone with more knowledge on the subject than I. I should also add that I want to do this night shot in the snow with 200 color fuji film.

So it’s using Russian cameras to take retro-looking snapshots of, well, pretty much everything? Kinda cool!

Here is a sample of shots I take if anyone wants to spend a minute or two. These are nothing great. I don’t even use Flickr anymore. I uploaded a few tonight so you could all see.

I just realized that I didn’t do a followup post here. Judochop, I think your shots look real cool. I just wanted to let you know.
