ЛОМО – Breaking all the rules.

leave a comment »

Lomography. A strange, yet exciting photographic technique popularized a few decades ago by people interested in shooting at random.  Lomo cameras were manufactured by a small company in St. Petersburg, Russia during the Cold War.  After being smuggled out of the Soviet Union, they found themselves in the hands of Austrian youths who wanted to do something different.

Lomo photography is characterized by random happenings and uncommon subjects.  It’s goal is to break all the rules of conventional photography.  The lenses usually have a vignette, as well as blur around the outside, depending what camera you are using, and is usually very saturated.  I have been using my iPhone with some Apps to get the desired effect.

Here are some of my favorites.  They might not all be exactly Lomo, but there is something so attractive about lo-fi.  To me, the fact is that they aren’t high quality is what makes them so unique. What I like the most about Lomography, is the realism.  Everything feels very honest, and nothing necessarily feels staged.  I find it especially useful when taking pictures of friends when out and about!

The apps I use are are Tilt-Shift Generator, Photo-Studio, and Instagram. It’s a fantastic way to add character to your normal everyday shots!

2011 Naias – Detroit Auto Show

leave a comment »

For the past 13 years, my father and I have been going to the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan.  The Motor City’s car show is one of the world’s largest and most lucrative.  Recently the show has seemed a bit sparse; no doubt a sign of the economic times.  However, this year is one of the first in recent memory where you don’t get that vibe.  Gone are the days of the flashy concepts that could never exsist in real life.  Now automakers focus on showing off their range, and in style!

A common theme of each exhibit is a flagship sports or “green” car, and the full range surrounding it; from suv to sub-compact.  People want to see what they can actually own, and I like it that way. An added bonus is usually a throwback model from previous years, like the Lincoln Continental from HBO’s Entourage.

OTR: On The Rise

with one comment

Just north of downtown Cincinnati lies Over The Rhine. Once one of the city’s most prized cultural possessions, today the area is plagued with crime and violence. However, upon a closer look, one can find shining beacons of light that are promoting change for the nation’s most dangerous neighborhood in 2009.

Music by the Prohibitionists.

Cincinnati Man Casually Devotes Life To Cycling – MARTY

leave a comment »

It’s rare you meet an individual so interesting and intriguing that you can shoot a story on them. Thats exactly how Sean Fannin and I felt about Martin Sanders though. This was made for DSSM in Electronic Media. This is a 100% original work from the music to camera work. Enjoy!
