Theories

This is an interesting article, especially half way down when he talks about photographers being people who make pronouncements without ever testing them out.  Theory without analysis.  I’m sure I do this but then when I make a theory about how to take a picture the best way, my own experiences must count as something towards proving the theory.

Lomography in the News

The BBC is extolling the virtues of Lomography here.

It’s nice to see some publicity for the cameras although I have misgivings about the article.  It tells you about the famous friends of Lomography but it doesn’t give you the cons of the system which are the cost of the cameras and the amount of film that you’ll need to go through if you want to get a few good shots.  This isn’t a problem for me because my LC-A is about fifteen years old and bought when they weren’t so extortionately priced and as a serial filmwaster, I’m not put off by34 out of 36 shots being bad.

Examples of my own Lomography can be found here.
