Halloween is just around the corner and we're brainstorming cool costume ideas for all the ghastly weekend activities. We'll probably take cues from these cute canines from the 1900s, all dressed up and accessorized for some pretty poignant (and funny) large-format portraits!
Today I will be introducing the technique so called EBS, exposing both sides of the film, one of the most unique techniques within Lomographic photos. Is it hard to do it? Maybe! But once you get good luck and concentration, you might get amazing results!
Fay is a Lomography super fan! She's a friend of the team here in the UK, and even helped us out in our pop-up shop last summer. She has a great gallery of photos, inspired by her Lomography community friends all over the world. Have a butchers here....
Introducing the lovely faces of our Lomography UK Stores! Find out a little bit more about the staff that help you with all your Lomographic needs! Based in London and Manchester this chirpy bunch guide you through everything analogue and host a mean party too!
I've given everyone a fair bit of the fun side of Halloween, so now that we're counting down the hours to the spooky celebration, it's time for me to bring on the fright side. I have to warn you though--the photos you are about to see are potentially nightmare-inducing. If you're ready, read on to see some compelling photos of people you might not believe were already dead by the time they were photographed.
The third lesson features all kinds of good stuff: from learning about manipulating and modifying cameras, getting the best light leaks, using sharpies and pins to design your negatives and also making your own redscale flip film!
The School of Lomography, our final lesson – The Lubitel 166+. Testing this camera was last but definitely not least! We made our way from the Soho store to visit our sister store in East London, had a shoot around the graffiti ridden streets and learned how we can incorporate Lomography in our daily lives.
The School of Lomography term has started again with 10 brand new freshers keen and eager to learn all they can... meet and greet all the new students of the School of Lomography in London!
With only 4 lessons in the school, it's tough to try and ram all the cameras and techniques into such a short space of time HOWEVER, all the students took to the challenege and began their second lesson learning a lot about the Sprocket Rocket and LC-A+ cameras!
Super saturation, amazing vignettes and awesome double exposures are just the thing to capture the vibrant colours of Diwali, and what better camera to do all this than the LC-A+!
What do you get when mix long exposures with fireworks and doubles? Awesome shots of course! This is what we’re going to do on the annual Guy Fawkes Bonfire night. Learn about either the DianaF+ or Sprocket Rocket camera (choose one) and experiment with ‘B’ mode, multiple exposures and flash photography in Battersea Park while admiring the amazing fireworks display.
We’re proud to welcome platinum record holder and singer and songwriter Agnes Obel in store. Agnes hails from Denmark and has now hit our shores with her soulful tunes, playing especially for the Lomographic community in London. Come and get a chance to see her up close and personal in this very intimate gig.
Right, get your pliers and scissors out because it’s time to get down and dirty with our plastic Pop9 camera! Our shop regular and friend, James Butler, will take the group through 9 techniques, from the simple to the downright destructive, and show you how to convert the basic 9 lens POP9 camera into a mean machine!

Get your lovely selves down to the Soho London store next Thursday evening for the grand launch of the latest product in the Lomographic range and get a chance to win the mystery item! Woo!
We’ll start with a basics course on the Lubitel 166+ camera then take to the streets shooting black&white portraits of ourselves and each other, and possibly spotting bros with mos and asking them if they want their portraits taken as well (we’ll have fake ones to give out to the girls). This is the best time to try your hand out at portraiture photography and spread awareness at the same time! Your portraits from the day will then be on display in store from the 24th.
Big old knees up and everyone is welcome, particularly those in the mo! This is the perfect time to show off your big, hairy, itchy taches and maybe even win a prize! Drinks and nibbles await!

Let’s celebrate all things analogue in this workshop!
We said it was going to be good... we weren't kidding! The LomoKino was launched in true Lomography style last night at the Lomography Gallery store in Soho. We rolled out the red carpet for everyone!
We are calling out to six brave chaps to step up and volunteer to grow their mo’s in the magic month of Movember! Are you up for the challenge!? We want you!
With winter now properly creeping up on us; pinhole shots, long exposures, painting with light and long lovely streaks was what this workshop was all about! Taking the Diana out at night for a stroll along the Thames opened our eyes to a whole new lease of life for this plastic lens beauty.
You would think that chocolate would be enough to feast our eyes on last Saturday afternoon at the" Chocolate Unwrapped" festival but the LC-Wide paired together with yummy endless tastings of chocolate really did the trick. We can't think of a better way to have spent our day!

Movember is the month formerly known as November, where men and women across the globe join together to raise awareness and funds for men’s health issues. We have events and workshops all month so you can get involved to help raise awareness for this cause. It’s time to grow that mo!
What was the Sprocket Rocket made for? Why for big, wide, up high, down low panoramas of course. With tourists swarming down below, what better way to shoot London than from above? The great thing about this plastic panoramic partner is that you can either shoot sprockety loveliness or crisp clean sprocket-less seams. So we did both.
