if you get the same effect using an ordinary camera or a digital - is it also called lomography?

lomography is only possible when you use a lomo cam.

i think. :unsure:

more like alternative photography very much like street photography too and freestyle yes. like toy cam afficionados, its a movement and a lifestyle. there's a huge disscussion wheter using other cams and recreating the lomo effect can still be considered lomography. if you ask me, using LSI (lomographic society international) cameras (LC-A, holga, supersampler, pop9 etc), developing on print without digital manipulation and cross-prossing is hardcore lomography. using digital cams are okay and maybe a little tweaking on photoshop is okay too but the thing is, it's not the same.

there are a few cams who can do "vignetting" e.i. the dark edges on the photos. the cosina is one. some old russian cams can do it too like the smenas. i dunno about normal slrs. photoshop also has a filter that can do lomo effect. try melancholytron. astig pangalan no? download it. google flaming pear + melancholytron.

nice pictures, thanks for making lomography known to more people, including me hehe

i think filters can be used to duplicate the effect, but the essence won't be the same.

can the LSI camera film be processed in an ordinary photo lab?

yes yes very much. the LC-A uses regular film. 35mm. the cheaper the better. the holga uses 120 meduim format tho. heeh. but for cross-prossing (using slide film) you can either cover your film with stickers or mark black with a pen and with your best poker face hand it over to the clueless developer or go over to wells and stuido54 lab 10. astig processing nila dun. galeng. pro eh. affordable naman so if you dont want anything going wrong with your film, better go pro. indulge once in a while. heeh.

if you are wondering what the cams look like here they are. the first is the holga, plastic fantastic baby! and the next is the lomo kompact automat (LC-A), small metal body with sharp spy lens. there are other fun lomo cams like the sampler family: supersampler and actionsampler. ill post their pics next.

here is the supersampler. it has four lenses and is powered by a rip cord. yes a rip cord. like the ones use for chimes on baby cribs. the four lenses are triggered in different f/stops. so you get 4 shots in one frame. aliw di ba?

a indispensable partner of the lc-a is its flash. the colorsplash flash. it has changable color filters on the fly. so if you want blue faces, pink feet, purple skin... just turn em and shooooot!
