Let Lomography Influence Your Paintings. Instagram is OK Too!
Being an addict of the point and shoot camera I was mystified as to why any one would want to go back to analogue photography. But then I came across Lomography which has it's origins in eastern European cold war technology and it was blindingly obvious why people just love the images produced, one shot, can't see the result til you print it little gems. I love the blur and shadow round the edges that comes with vintage lomography and the way the colours can be slightly off kilter making you feel disconnected and nostalgic. All this has crept into way I paint and this picture of the running man is the latest from the studio.
Of course if you don't want to go analogue, digital will do, with the wonderful effects from Instagram.
