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.
New York City celebrated the bees that pollinate the world and we got to participate in the family-friendly extravaganza on Beach 97 Boardwalk, Rockaway, Boardwalk. There was art, food, music, crafts, a Bee Marketplace, and lots of sweet sweet honey. Check out the highlights of Honey Week, Honey Fest and all that we learned about the great bees that pollinate our world!
October is a great month for fun! With Halloween around the corner, Lomography NYC has prepared a month-long, photo-filled month. You don't want to miss out on all the great photography, parties, and exhibitions. To keep things interesting, we're teaming up with BLOCKS NYC, Crazy 8 Cartoon Festival and more.
New York City has long been synonymous to skyscrapers, throngs of people both locals and tourists, neon lights, entertainment, and all things loud and hip. It is, after all, a metropolis, a melting pot of cultures - the city that never sleeps. However, back in the 1960s, Duane Michals was able to capture these photographs of a New York that many people has rarely seen.
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.
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.
This August, we bring you back to your roots and explore the wonders of nature! First, we cook up a storm with a film soup experiment. Followed by nature photowalks at beautiful scenic parks in Singapore to unearth the tips & tricks of trouble exposure, as well as the unique methods to perfect our macro shots. To cap off the learning month, we'll gather on a cozy Friday night for a new special sharing series by the Lomography Community -- with Sharing Session #1: Nature.
Manchester is giving birth to a new generation of up-and-coming artists and musicians. Among them is indie band Money, which performed at the recently held CMJ Music Marathon in New York City. Check out a video of the band's recent performance.
The band Wannabe Jalva came all the way from Brazil to be part of the CMJ Music Marathon. We asked the band's members to be part of the LomoAmigo crew and catch a glimpse of the Big Apple, and they documented a week-long stay in New York with a Lomography La Sardina camera.
