“Try something different – not always the same … so much colour choice out there :) Experiment with as many as you can get your hands on – no really go for it!”
With the Lubitel+ on your hands, not only it tells you to shoot your world on squares but also encourages you to play with what Lomographers really love: the beautiful analogue colour saturation! Just like what scootiepye did, she fearlessly used a variety of slide films (and cross-processed it) that made us aware of the colours which only the Lubitel+ can see. Congratulations!
And while you’re on it, why not let everyone know who you really love and why you’re such a Lubitel+ addict here!

Some people say instant photos bring about a feeling of nostalgia. Although I often use the Lomo'Instant Camera with different crazy accessories such as the Splitzer and color gels, I have to agree there is something about it — dreamy vignettes maybe? — that always makes me want to go back in time and experience it all over again. In the name of analogue photography and good old memories, we passed by some classic spots in Vienna and took one shot after the other. Take a closer look at our gallery.

Last year, Armin Amirian talked to Lomography about his motivations as an artist, his inspiration for his work and the difficulty of pursuing his passion in the society he belongs to. With that came a collection of images that reflected the concerns he and his fellow countrymen are faced with every day. The Iran-based photographer returns with insight on his new body of work.
Some photographers have an instinct for the unique. Whereas others aim to fashion the ordinary into a singular picture, these hunters are obsessed with what cannot be found elsewhere. They prize an exclusive scoop on architectural patterns, artisan quirks, and objects that stick out of an everyday scene. And when the photographers find them, they will twist and turn to get the most flattering angle. Only right for curiosities that beg to be shared.
