an alien word from my good friend, pipita.
so i did some researched..
and according to Wiki:
- is the commercial trademark of Lomographische AG, Austria for products and services related to photography.
- emphasizes casual, snapshot photography.
- characteristics such as over-saturated colors, off-kilter exposure, blurring, "happy accidents," and alternative film processing are often considered part of the "Lomographic Technique".
Lomographer - a person practicing Lomography.
yun naman pala, Lomography is also a form of Photography, there are just small things that are quite different in Lomo compared to other high-end photography.
In Lomo, they dont use high-end cameras instead they use toy cameras, and by the word 'toy', it means a lot lighter in terms of weight, no complicated buttons, simple controls and easier to use compared to DSLR's and SLR cams, and its really cute.
compared to high-end photography, Lomo is a stress-less hobby.
you dont need to be a professional!
for people like me na walang basic knowledge in photography and greatly relying on my instinct and gut-feeling to capture that one great picture, its nice to know that you dont need to have the right angle, lighting or even the perfect subject to achieve what you want, as they say, the distorted the picture the better.
you dont need to be rich!
Lomo is a budget-friendly hobby. hindi mo kailangan gumastos ng libo-libo just to feed your artistic thirst, a good Lomo cam can cost you around 2k to 5k depending on the brand you want.
you dont need to worry!
Lomographers are encouraged to have a lighter approach when shooting, "happy incidents" are good. distortions that we dont want to see in our films like saturated colors, blurry pictures and exposure can really add up to the fun and artistic factor of our films.
