Equipped with a camera in each hand (Coloursplash & Supersampler) I saw the South Bank afresh – with ‘just shoot’ as my mantra I snapped happily – funny how when you’re the observer you feel invisible – my presence insinuated, my senses alive – birds, boats, Elvis, giant Manga characters, onion smells, shrieks, giggles, oaths – my favorite bit of the day was enjoying following my own path; somehow with two cameras I didn’t need a dog to walk or a place to be going I could just ‘be’ and what a perfect place to just ‘be’ – my advice? pick up a camera and let it be your raison d’etre, but wear gloves!!
If you're the happy owner of a Lomo LC-Wide, you are probably overwhelmed and frustrated at not being able to use your three different frames on one film. But this tipster will let you make magic happen!

Every year I get the winter blues. I start imagining the feel of the sunrays, ice cold beer after a long summer day, and the endless hours spent on the beach. I have captured moments, memories, and dreams this year, which is my favorite thing to do. This is a short version and visual diary of my year 2014.
You want your subject be the center of attention? Petzval lens photos are recognizable for sharpness and crispness in the centre, strong color saturation, wonderful swirly bokeh effect, artful vignettes and narrow depth of field that will make your subjects stand out!
In December last year James Wright, editor and creative director of So It Goes Magazine, went on a two-week trip to Sri Lanka, "a place so long on our bucket list, but up until then, as yet unvisited," he writes on the first of his three-part photo diary. Herein is the first of his series that chronicles his adventures, highlighted by a selection of breathtaking images of the Sri Lankan countryside and the locals, among many other images, captured with his trusty photographic companions: the Leica MP, Lomo LC-A+, and an assortment of films including the LomoChrome Purple.
For most people, winter means staying indoors and bundling up in warm clothes. But for a group of monks in Japan, the season means an opportunity to discipline themselves in a ceremony that requires them to wear minimal clothing and splash cold water on themselves.
