ok! this is the correct place smile
oh you just have to add a little effects to your LOMO LC-A to see three erlas!
i bought in "porta portese" (rome) a fancy set of lenses for some kind of old videocamera for a ridicolous amount of money.
i didn't know what to do with them. but when it comes to lc-a u can use everything and the results will be fine!

I learnt this from a friend. I used my compact Canon camera for this.

The model here has to sit in the closet with some kind of lighting in the closet on and the closet door closed. The room in which this photo is taken has to be dark. The shutter speed used was 4 or 5 seconds, ISO 80, B&W mode with the flash on. Press the shutter button and after the flash fires, open the closet door and let the camera take in as much light from the inside lighting. And there you go! Now you can see the ghosts in your closet! My friend who helped me with this had a hard time falling asleep after this project as the closet was just at the end of her bed! lol

new doubles  this is a new version of an old trick shoot the roll of film as normal. When the roll is finished rewindit like you would if you were going to shoot it as a double. before reloading it make a mask for the inside fo the camera with a shape or a picture or like in this case; a word and glue it in using pva glue (this is easy to remove when you have finished) the shoot again as normal - maybe trying to thing of the mask that is inthe camera to create the best shots -NB remember to put the mask upside down!!!!!!!!  http://forum.photojojo.com/img/posted/img48cff7c5ce43a.jpg?url=http://pictures.lomography.com/pix/picsfrom070330/683d0f6219527f34/UL_930847_12165577171_l.jpg

I have two tips.
The first involves placing a stencil inside the camera, between the film and the lens. A stencil with some opacity will allow the cut out areas to be in focus and the plastic areas to be out of focus. The stencil was a light green color, but I inserted a small gel into the camera as well to get the red cast.

The other is to use daylight balanced film(typically referred to as normal film) in non daylight situations (ie- inside lights, televesions, candle lights, etc). It will turn "white" light to green, blue, and orange casts depending on the light.  Note that you may also use Tungsten film in daylight to create a blue cast to your photos. A great way to get wild color without cross processing.

take a picture, turn your camera upside down and expose for the same image at the same angle (if you can).

The tips and tricks for digital cameras seem few and far between - probably because a lot of the 'tricks' are effectively post-processing.

Anyway, a cheap child's toy can be used to good effect:

Simply hold the toy lens over your digi camera lens, point and shoot. If you don't like the circle, zoom the camera in to get rid of it.

push the film! this means to trick your camera into thinking that your camera is shooting on a higher speed film than it actually is. to do this on an manual slr, simply set the camera's designated film speed to a level higher (i.e. tell the camera that 200 speed film is 400 speed). but, this is of course possible with digital cameras too. in fact, i found a neat little trick to do so easily with instamatic digital cameras. when shooting use the flash, but cover with your hand so it doesn't expose light on the subject. instead, the camera shoots faster because it thinks the camera is using the flash. it uses battery quicker but is worth it. the colors are much sharper and more saturated. it definitely helps create a more colorful image with better lighting. of course this cannot be used when there is too little light. but try it. happy shooting!

take a look at these examples for some idea of what it looks like. they were shoot on a pretty old and extremely simple instamatic sony cybershot (my camera was left at home so i had to borrow a friend's old one):

My tip is so simple that I doubt if it can be called a tip: just stay low. You will have a totally different perpective and that will make your pictures much more interesting. See and maybe try for yourself.

Organic, in-camera creativity is so hard to come by these days. (Says the person who works with Photoshop for a living...) I've been playing around with different techniques for a while, some of them discovered almost fortuitously. One of my favorites: using a textured reflective surface, an object and a light source to create interesting, dramatic imagery.

Here are a couple of examples using a small elephant figurine and a plastic orange cone as the objects.

Fog your lens! Just take a deep breath and puff some hot air on the lens (careful not to spit on it... though that could lead to interesting results as well...) then quickly snap your picture before it all evaporates! Or if you have exceptionally steamy breath, let some of the fog evaporate for more random blurred patches, rather than the otherwise uniform haze.

Cross Process! Take a roll of slide film (Fuji Sensia is my personal favorite) and have it developed in C-41 (regular color film) chemistry. The resulting images will have crazy color casts (I've seen cyan, magenta, yellow...), high contrast and super saturated color! Play around with it, over-expose your pictures a stop for more intense results, and definitely give xpro a try with artificial lighting for more surprises on your film!

Make Filters! Tape a piece of transparent material over your lens- this can be a printed image on transparency paper, something hand drawn on acetate, or even colored plastic wrap/cellophane! It will create an interesting 'double exposure' image, or when using colored material, beautiful photo tints.

Use Infrared! Infrared film is special black and white film that records infrared light. Some organic matter- like grass and leaves- reflects infrared light and they appear white, while skies are a rich black. It makes for some very stunning landscapes, some that will look like snow in the middle of summer! All you need is a red filter for your camera and a roll of infrared film to get amazing shots.

The colorsplash flash is my absolute favorite! But if you don't want to shed the dollars for a color changing burst of light, you can make your own with a piece of colored acetate/cellophane/plastic wrap taped over your flash. The D.I.Y. version may actually be better because it is customizable, allowing for hundreds of color combinations, even a few at once wink

Use 35mm film in a 120 camera. This way the image area bleeds around the sprocket holes and looks pretty awesome. I put this roll in the Holga- get it to 'stay put' inside by wrapping rubber bands around the extra space on the take up roller, and stuff foam pieces (cut up a sponge) around the 35mm roll to keep it in place on the left! Cover the red window with black tape, or have even more fun with crazy light leaks and just leave the window open...

Use the self-timer to put the camera places you can't go! Whether it's high above you or below, using the self-timer can help you get a different perspective on great moments. Cheers!

i have a holga12owpc (wide pinhole camera) and i really like it. it shoots 120. so if you add three pictures (make them overlap by not forwarding the filmtotally to the next number) to each other, you have a perfect panoramic shot. you need a tripod for it and you can use it as orientation. on top of the cam are signs showing the angle you shoot. put it in a line to one of the tripod'S feet and turn it to the other and so on, yo you always know how far you have to turn your camera.
the only bad thing is that you cannot scan these shots in one, cause one shot is 6x12,5 cm tall and my flatbed scanner is not able to scan a nearly 40 cm negative...
so you have to add them together with your scan- program

If you've found yourself salivating over colorsplash flash but don't have enough cash to spare, You've thought of using plastic celophane or plastic jell but want a sturdier alternative. I reccomend using velcro cable organizers. Get a cheap ass flash for less than 10USD or give some life to that old molding flash unit you had lying around the house. Then find those velcro cable organizers from your favorite dollar store and Boom! You got yourself a colorsplash flash that isn't unsightly with the rubberbands and Sticky tape.

Like so:
