One of the nicest things to do in New York City in the autumn (fall) months has got to be hiring a bike and exploring the vast and beautiful Central Park.
As I don’t have a bike of my own at home, I was desperate to hire one when I was on holiday in September in New York City. Luckily as soon as you get within 20 metres of the park, you are bombarded by various companies offering you all different packages and styles of bicycles. My advice is, whatever they offer you, and however reasonable it sounds at first, walk away from them and they will make a significant reduction. We paid $20 for an hour for the 2 of us but I am sure we could have got this for less if we hadn’t been so sick of walking already.
I went around the park with my 18-year-old cousin and the surroundings are really amazing and I couldn’t help but think how nice it would be to go there as a date some time. I shot a lot of the photos here with Fuji Sensia and Redscale XR, which gave some nice soft effects to these photos, which really emphasises the romanticism of the location.
There is so much to see and do and you could easily spend a day or more there. My favourite part of the park that we got to see was the fountain, about a third of the way north from the south end of the park which you can see in the photos below.
How early can photography be taught? After some lessons on visual expression, the Museum of the City of New York had second to fifth grade students traipsing around Central Park and Museum Mile with a camera.
In New York City, winter has been harsh and long, the nights long and cold, and shooting outside is not fun anymore. So when the Lomo'Instant Boston Edition hit the shelves this week and the new Splitzer arrived at the Lomography Gallery Store New York, we decided to do a round of light painting portraits instead of sunny ones.
Beat the June gloom with some new photographic adventures. With a slew of city-wide street festivals and better weather, we've come up with some fun events this month to keep you inspired. Now, go out and shoot!
Done shooting and want your films to be processed? We can process your colour and black & white 35mm, 120 or 110 films! Development, prints and scans are also included. (Service availability depends on your markets)
Scott Brasher is a fashion street photographer based in New York City. His work has been featured on many media outlets while working with brands like Cover Girl, MTV, Reebok, and Target, among many others. But before this, Scott started shooting in the streets of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, capturing its daily urban fashion. Last month, he took the Petzval Lens to the streets of New York to photograph scenes at the famous New York Fashion Week.
What do you do when you don't have much time in a city like New York but you want to see everything, feel the vibe and be part of the community, even for a short time? Jump on a bike and enjoy what trains, buses and cabs can never give you: be part of the city. Take a camera with you to capture the moments and sights you don't want to forget. I did this with my LC-A 120 and LomoChrome Purple film.

The young artist and Magnum photographer Christopher Anderson published on his agency's website an awesome photo series, one of the images in it a great symbol of freedom, joy of living outdoors, purity, innocence, candor, and girlhood: the bare sole of a female lifted up, taken at the Central Park in New York. Like many other great Magnum photographers, Anderson explored this interesting body part through photographs. For this tribute, I chose a series of bare feet images I took along the promenade of the lake Como. Take a look!
Lomography has just launched the new Petzval 58 Bokeh Control lens campaign on Kickstarter. Luckily, I was able to try the prototype of the lens back in February. And if you're in New York City in February, there is one thing you can't miss: the Fashion Week.
