By nature Kontera’s R&D division is curious about new technologies. So when it came time for the Mercury and Solutions teams to go on a group outing, experimenting with Lomographic cameras seemed like the perfect activity. Sasha Abramovich, one of our Software Developers, runs Lomography Israel and provided the cameras for the workshop.
Lomography is both a specific line of cameras and a community devoted to using low fidelity analog to create the type of happy accidents you often find in bad photography. Operating under the movement’s Ten Golden Rules which encourages spontaneity and unorthodox composition, Lomography is often taken with a wide angle or fish eye lens and utilizes a development technique called cross processing. This involves using a chemical solution intended for a different type of film, which produces oversaturated and unusual colors.
Excited to see exactly what these cameras can do, the Mercury and Solutions teams heading out to the beach 10 minutes away from the Kontera Israeli office and photographed everything in sight. Below are some more photos along with a video filmed on a special 35 mm still frame LomoKino camera.
Hope you have as much fun looking at these pictures as we did making them
