I've only been to Spice Island Grenada once for a holiday, but it made a great location to shoot Lomos with my Frogeye and SuperSampler cameras. It certainly lived up to its reputation for being hot, spicy and tropical, just the perfect place for chillin'. It may have changed a little since I was there as it was hit by a hurricane and pretty much devastated later that year, but the Granadians are resilient people and they have been rebuilding their paradise Island. One place I would thoroughly recommend a visitor to go to is the Chocolate factory - not only do they produce wonderful chocolate, the whole ethos of the place is wonderful, it's very much a community enterprise.

It's only been a few weeks since we launched the newest member of the LC-A family, yet the Internet has already been abuzz with much talk about it. We're thrilled to see all the coverage that photography and tech websites and blogs have given the LC-A 120, so we've rounded up some of them to share with you right here!
My dad and I have been riding our bicycles for as long as I can remember. We had no camera back then, so I only have the pictures from our recent rides. Each ride to the island of Khortitsa today is like a reunion with my childhood and my father's care.
If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!
Kristen Blanton and Matthew Jozwiak traded their home in Austin for the wild. Together, they created a wonderful outdoor photographic storytelling site, helloamericaphotography.com. Here's Kristen to tell us more about the Lomo LC-A camera that they have been shooting with.
A Petzval Lens fit for medium format would be amazing, but unfortunately there isn’t an adapter by Canon for the Pentacon Six. The distance between the film and lens also doesn’t leave much room for experimentation, and only close-up shots are possible.
It's only been three hours since our Kickstarter campaign for the Lomography New Petzval 58 Bokeh Control Art Lens was launched, yet we've already reached the $100,000 funding goal. A huge thanks to our awesome backers!
We love our cameras. We especially love it when you love our cameras. And we get super pumped when you tell us about it. So when the LC-A 120 got a stunning review from the fellas at The Phoblographer, we were giddy with delight! Not only did they give it a killer, in-depth review, but they also bestowed it with a 5/5 rating and Editor's Choice award! Read on for a little taste of the review and then head to their site to read the whole thing!
Geoffrey Berliner is the Executive Director of the Penumbra Foundation and the Center for Alternative Photography in New York. As the head of an organization whose goals are 'to be a comprehensive resource for photographers at any level' and 'to continue to publicize the impact photography has had and continues to have on culture, history and the arts,' his exposure to photographic materials -from 19th century gems to modern equipment- is so extensive, one cannot even begin to fathom just how much knowledge and experience this man has acquired. His collection of over 2000 vintage Petzval lenses is unparalleled, and the object of envy of both traditional and contemporary photographers. Although such lenses are reputed to require a certain level of skill to be used, Berliner seems to manage them with so much ease, producing splendid results.
The NYC Jazz Age Lawn Party on the notorious greens of Governor's Island is one event you'd want to attend this August. Steeped in age, glamour, and a little bit of mischief, the Jazz Age Lawn Party is a weekend to attend and remember. What better way to go than with Lomo? We're giving away tickets and they could be yours for the taking.
The journey of the Lomo'Instant is a tale of unpacking, dating, ghost spotting, and so much more. From the day it appeared on Kickstarter to the time it landed on the doorsteps and into the hands of its would-be owners, its story has been a colorful and eventful one, retold and captured on social media.
