Photo Friday: Lomography

November 28th, 2008 by Ross

lomo1.jpg

I would like to start by saying thank you and big ups to Jorge for his Photo Friday entry last week. His in-depth and insightful look at Horst was awesome. I know some of you out there may have missed me and I apologize for missing out. So this week is somewhat of a shameful self promotion as well as a look at one of my favorite cameras out there.

This week we’ll take a look at the LOMO and the style of photography that goes with it called Lomography. Lomo (Leningrad Optical-Mechanical Amalgamation) started back in World War I as a Russian optical and mechanical company and is still working today. One of their most popular and my favorite camera was the Lomo LC-A. Its a simple little camera with a dial to change the focus and exposure but its small enough to bring around with you day to day. This camera and style of photography has become very popular these days with several different models now being produced by the company and even a “set of rules” to follow. Its an interesting way to look at including photography in your everyday life and produces some interesting results.

After coming across the camera for the first time I was hooked because of the unexpected results (you never know when its actually in focus, you kind of have to guess) that you get as well as the colors the lens produces. I have to admit that I don’t take my camera with me as much as I should but as part of my new resolutions with myself to get me shooting more I’m starting to bring it with me more and getting some really interesting results. I just wanted to share with everyone out there some of my favorites from the time I have been using this lil’ guy as well as some more of my recent results.

Also on a side note I’m going to be beginning a portrait project once the new year starts and I am looking for people interested in getting in on the project. I’m still working out all the kinks but if there is anyone out there who is interested please contact me! More details to follow at a later date!

Set It Off: SeriousRon™

November 26th, 2008 by Larry

Name:
Ron Lewis

Aka:  
SeriousRon™

Website:
www.seriousron.com

Where are you from?
I was born on a cigarette boat going 90 mph through the Gulf of Mexico. My parents had gotten caught up in a little mess with some gentlemen from Panama, so those first few years were a bit crazy. Funny story about that, actually. When news of that boat incident hit the papers, (producer) Michael Mann had just finished working on Starsky and Hutch. Five days later he was pitching the pilot for Miami Vice to the major networks. Coincidence?  Who knows…

Who do you work for? 
Simply put, I work for beauty. I’m a slave to her, really. She’s a relentless mistress, and she’ll haunt me to my death bed. Also, I work for Turner Broadcasting Co.

What are your Current Project(s)? 
I just finished up a series of oil paintings that I call Lions and Tigers and Ladies, Oh My!. What I did was to take a lady from each of the seven continents and kind of morph her into a cat from that area. For instance, for South America, I did a lady who is half-puma. I ran into a bit of trouble when I got to Antarctica. Turns out there aren’t any big cats or ladies there, so I did a sort of snow-woman who’s morphed into a fur seal. That one actually turned out really sexy.

Who would you love to work with?
Kenny Loggins, hands down. You already know the man can turn out some wicked collaboration work after Loggins & Messina, but I want to take his sound into the visual arena. I’ve already got a title for the tour, actually… Lazer Ball.

If you had to give all your sneakers away to charity except for one pair, which ones would you keep? 
Honestly, the Salvation Army can take all my sneakers. Just don’t touch my roller skates! I put an easy 300 miles on those things in ’86 alone. They’re a part of me.

What’s on your iPod right now?
iPod?

What’s your Favorite ATL food?
You can catch me at Alfredo’s or Nino’s off Cheshire Bridge pretty much any night of the week. It’s just so convenient to the city’s best party spots. I really love the .99 breakfast at Ikea as well. That place has a Euro-vibe that just won’t quit.

What’s your Favorite ATL hangout?
My pad. I’ve got a leapord skin couch that makes you feels like you’re swimming in butter every time you lay on it. But if I’m going out for a cocktail, you’ll probably find me at Trader Vic’s. Classy joint, and their Mai Tai is like a magical key that unlocks the door to Sexy Town.

What are your Pet Peeves?
These “punk rockers”. Take a bath and try on a sport coat, for crying out loud. Am I right?

Shout outs?
Jon and Amy Atteberry, Bill Bounds, Sabrina Wood Llenza, Fredo Aponte, Allison Brennan, Erin Rosintoski, Lindsey “POW” Wagner, Erica Jamison at Mint Gallery, Demun Jones, Hans Gruber (aka Hano Leathers), Andrew Hughes, Franco Roberts, Jtrav, Travis Pitts, Kevin Marshall, AtticaSound, Rehab, Standard, GoAPE Clothing, ArtHouse Co-OP, Atlanta Pecha Kucha, WonderRoot, Brunks on Dikes, No Brakes, Amanda “pure heat” Lauterhaus, The TGG Crew, The Twitter Posse, Black Rock Collective, Octane Coffee, Miami, Huey Lewis and the News, Trader Vic, EC I love you.

Pecha Kucha – We Are The Process

November 25th, 2008 by Larry

About 2 months ago, Georgios and I participated in the Atlanta version of a speaker series called Pecha Kucha. The funny name is derived from a Japanese term for the sound of conversation (“chit-chat”).

The key to Pecha Kucha is the simple formula: 20 slides for 20 seconds each. Each invited speaker has the spotlight for 6 minutes 40 seconds to share and show off their work before the program moves on to the next presentation.

This was the first time I had done any public speaking since I presented my design school portfolio upon graduation, so it might be a little shaky, but it’s worth a listen if you are interested in how our house brand, PROCESS, came to life.

Download from iTunes: PROCESS Pecha Kucha Podcast

Thanks to Fredo and Sabir from Atlanta Pecha Kucha for inviting us to tell our story!

Mr. Oizo – Steroids [feat Uffie]

November 24th, 2008 by Larry


Who wants to see a picture of Mr. Oizo instead of Uffie? No one..

I love Uffie for her bad attitude, bad fashion sense, and the way she spits like a dude. Mr. Oizo is the man behind Uffie’s single, “Ready to Uff” from a couple years back which you may have heard if you’ve ever come by our studio. The two have collaborated again on Oizo’s new album, Lamb’s Anger. I wasn’t sure what to think the first time I heard this track, but it’s really growing on me, as do all of Uffie’s songs.

Black Friday Air Force 1

November 24th, 2008 by Larry

This might be the only reason to wake up early on Black Friday. Sneakerhead extraordinaire, DJ Clark Kent, collaborated with Nike on this Air Force 1 sneaker that comes out this Friday.

“So I went to the fabric library, picked the prime suspects and went to work on the design,” said Clark Kent. “The end result…Something Black, Luxurious & Fly, and FRESH!!!! What better way to start the holiday shopping season?!?!”

Now I understand that you can’t tell what they look like from the teaser photo above, but word on the street is that they’re the best-looking pair to drop this year. We’ll see…

If you happen to be near 21 Mercer in NYC, Concepts in Boston, or Shoe Gallery in Miami, you’ll have a chance to grab a pair. Apparently the launch will begin at 4am at the 21 Mercer store. Clark will then travel to Boston and deliver the 10am launch at Concepts. He will then fly to Miami for the 8pm delivery at Shoe Gallery. What a day! I hope he packs his “day-after-Thanksgiving” sandwiches.

No word on an Atlanta release just yet, but let’s keep our fingers-crossed.

PROCESS in Paris

November 23rd, 2008 by Larry

Our buddy, Scott sent me this message and accompanying photo the other day:

“Larry, I’m out here on tour still and thought I’d send you this photo.
Represent the home team.
;)

You can barely tell, but he’s wearing a black on black PROCESS logo tee we made a few samples of earlier this summer. Scott (aka Tester) tours the world playing his unique brand of Jungle/Reggae. Check out his group, Trilogy Sound Crew.
