Looking for International Submissions: Screen your Lomokino films at the Toronto Urban Film Festival Rumble!
Win big Piggy Points, and a chance to win a Lomokino! Not only that, a chance to screen your film throughout subway stations in Toronto, Canada! The Toronto Urban Film Festival (TUFF) happens each year, at the same time as the Toronto International Film Festival! It is known as one of the world's "coolest" film festivals, for it’s unique method of screening the best 1 minute, silent short films every 10 minutes, on 300 screens in 60 subway stations across Toronto!
Well, it finally happened - Toronto did its very own LomoMatrix! But, you'll still have to wait until the premiere on Canada Day for the final display. However, we have some great teaser footage for you guys to take a look at, just to keep you guys hanging!
The Spinner 360 is known for its super cool panoramic shots. But, have you ever tried using this camera vertically and getting a different type of 360...from top to bottom...to top?
I don't know why but it just seems so incredibly easy to take photos of your feet. It's almost like a default when there's nothing else to take photos of. And luckily, some neat shots can come out of it!
With Spring coming at us with full force, I try to make use of my weekends, especially those usually somber Sunday afternoons. What better way to spruce that up than adding a bit of analogue to the picture! And, thus begins a series of Sunday afternoon adventures, beginning with this first installment of a photo walk around Markham's serene Toogood Pond with my trusty LC-Wide!
It's the first long weekend of the spring and Canadians are getting ready to celebrate the fantastic weather with a couple of beers and some good ol' bonding time with family and friends! Need some ideas? Read on to see how you can spend the Victoria Day Long Weekend -- analogue style!
In celebration of Mother's Day, we at Lomography Canada thought it would be super cool to feature one of our favourite moms! Downtown mother and banker Mable Ang took the LC-A+ with her on her most recent trip and proved that right with lots of great photos and a new-found love for analogue photography!
The time has come - Toronto is doing its own LomoMatrix! I know all of you analogue fans are itching to participate, and we're digging right into our Lomographic community to find you. If you've got a 35mm camera and interested in creating a masterpiece with the Lomography Canada team, then this is perfect for you!
We are pleased to present Two and a Quarter this May, as part of the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival in Toronto! This group exhibition highlights the creativity possible within the square image. Each artist has created their own unique and imaginative image with the classic Diana F+ camera. Come to the Lomography Gallery Store Toronto to experience this exhibit, along with Diana F+ inspired events and workshops that will definitely open your eyes to the world of analogue photography!
Kimon, our Lomography Canada Staff introduces his original, classic Lomography Camera! Do you have any unique cameras that you found? Share your story with us!
Our good friends at Trend Hunter spent the afternoon at the Lomography Gallery Store Toronto last Friday April the 13th. They had a blast attending our Andy Warhol multilens workshop. To add a twist to that, we clever folk at the Lomography Gallery Store Toronto turned the workshop into a scavenger hunt and set the hunters loose on the streets of Toronto. Read on to see what went down!
Strike!!!! Holiday Party with the Lomography Toronto Gang!
MuchFACT, A Foundation To Assist Canadian Talent, held their year-end screening party in Toronto this past week and Lomography Canada was there to spread the Lomo-love! From the band The Arkells to Muchmusic VJs Lauren Toyota, Jesse Giddings and Phoebe Dykstra, celebrities & industry people alike came out for a night of great music videos and great company.
Since the La Sardina Camera arrived we here at the LGS Toronto could not hold back our excitement to get out and start shooting. What better testing ground we though than the Toronto Islands! Meet some of the team and check out this not so hidden gem Torontonians flock to when the heat in the city gets too much to handle (and yes it does get hot in Canada).
Lomography is taking over Canada, one analogue city at a time! We'll be traveling coast to coast for this series, digging into old photo albums and our online lomographic community as we reminisce the development of our beautiful Canadian cities! We've come this far, and we thought it would be a super cool idea to feature not one, but a whole BUNCH of cities for our final installment. Ladies and gents, welcome to the Maritimes!
So I have been missing from the Lomography world for a while now. I am unsure what happened but something inside me broke, something went, something unseen, unheard and unknown silently left and analogue photography, film, cameras and Lomo was nothing more than a void.
It's not always black and white. That's one of the messages that the upcoming movie The Bang Bang Club wishes to convey. Have you heard about it yet? Watch the trailer after the jump!
