LC-A Reflections: Skillful Symmetry and Optical Illusions


There's something seriously satisfying about reflections. They fascinate us because they offer a fleeting chance to sink into an alternate reality. We muse at mirror images and derive indescribable pleasure from perfect visual equilibrium.

Parallel Universe

Thousands of Lomographers have been shooting trippy reflections with the LC-A+ for a whole quart century now. Lightweight and compact, you can whip it out as soon as something crazy strikes you. Use a Splitzer to slice up your shots and create a whole new dimension, or experiment with a Wide Angle Lens attachment and squeeze in ever more surreal scenes.

Translucent Tricks

With it's original Minitar-1 glass lens and and precise zone focusing, the LC-A+ is perfect for capturing crisp geometric or soft, natural forms. Seek out glossy surfaces, large bodies of water or ice, windows, bubbles, and even tiny puddles! Revel in the punchy colors and moody vignetting that charcaterize the Lomo Look, and play around with angles, iridescent surfaces, and luminous lighting.
