A couple of weeks ago Facebook unveiled their new feature called "Timeline". With this feature Facebook is turning your profile into an interactive resumé.
Some might say this is a new way to collect more personal data from the Facebook users, which might be true. But I don‘t want to discuss this here in the article.
I want to talk about something else. I have to admit the first thing that came up to my mind was not a privacy concern. The first thing that came to my mind was: The cover photo is the perfect place to showcase some of my favorite Horizon shots.
And I was not the only LomoNerd that had this idea while seeing the dimensions of the new design. Lots of lucky Horizon owners and friends on Facebook used this place to upload their favorite Horizon shots. But as cool as it might be, I think our Lomowall feature at Lomography.com is way better and gives you more creative freedom.
What do you think about the new design and which is better the Facebook Coverphoto or our Lomowall feature?
There is nothing than a photo shot at the perfect moment. Henri Cartier Bresson's principle on "The Decisive Moment" is a principle that we should still follow to this day. A perfectly-timed photo creates impact, whether it's one of a friend jumping into the pool or a couple emerging from the ceremony on their wedding day. For this rumble, we want to see that breathtaking moment, shot at the perfect time.
I backed the Kickstarter project for the Lomo’Instant earlier this year and was thrilled to receive it last week. I love how the camera naturally encourages you to experiment with its different features, whether it’s through flashing your multiple exposures with different colors or trying different creative techniques after your shots has been ejected. Here are a few tips from what I’ve discovered from playing with the camera so far (and a couple of tips I want to try out in future)!
Really want to bring your film photos to life? We’re now offering totally analogue fine art prints in a host of large sizes and formats! Carefully enlarged from your negatives onto premium photographic paper by lab professionals, each picture is a unique piece of craftsmanship.
With a versatile lens like the New Russar+ lens, there are so many shooting styles, subjects, and approaches you can try with your L39 and M mount cameras. This wide angle lens is perfect for taking architectural shots and documenting cityscapes, so we thought of sharing a handful of quick tips you can try with this new accessory!
This is what you call a perfect combination. And we’re not even talking about just the wonderful combination of the surreal and the beautiful in photographer couple Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison’s work. See more of their photos after the jump.
Are you ready for an adrenaline rush? A little while ago, we teamed up with the snowboard and film-making collective Yougofirst and gave them a LomoKino and some film rolls to play with. After a season of crazy riding, jumps and tricks, they have finished their latest movie HETEROTOPIA which features footage shot with our 35mm movie-maker. We had the chance to catch up with Vid and Matic from the collective about the new movie and their experiences shooting analogue on the slopes. It's also our pleasure to showcase the movie here!
The wait is over! Unveil the all new LOMO' INSTANT with us this November with a photo hunt and a demo day! We've also prepared a stellar lineup of workshops just for you. Join us for a month full of activities to nourish your photographic minds!

Around a month ago, we teamed up with Exclaim.ca for the release of Jay Malinowski & the Deadcoast's new album "Martel", and invited all of you to submit photos that represent your interpretation of this new album.
Lomography has previously shown you the kind of shots that one could take with the new Lomo LC-A 120. Now, with the first batch already shipped out and arriving to their lucky owners, it's the community's turn to show everyone what they've been shooting with this awesome camera!
