The High Line is an amazing location to photograph. We are gathering a group of Lomographers to hit the streets and roam the High Line equipped with an arsenal of cameras. We'll be focusing on wide angel and panoramic cameras so get ready to get a wide view of this NYC landmark!
A few years ago NYC converted some abandoned elevated train tracks in to one of the most amazing urban parks anywhere in the US. Lucky for us it is a short walk from our shop!

Some lomographers prefer to hoard as many analog cameras their shelves and budgets can support. Some would rather keep a manageable number that they can regularly shoot with. Community member Joshua Kennedy belongs to the latter group. From 40 cameras, he downsized his collection to 13, as he puts it, "really good ones" that suit his shooting habits and style. In this interview, he breaks down his small yet dependable arsenal of vintage and handmade cameras and how an organized schedule allows him to shoot with each one on a regular basis.
In celebration of the newly-launched Lomo’Instant Montenegro, we're calling out all ardent globe-trotters to give us an instant visual tour around the picturesque places that inspired the designs of our Lomo'Instant editions.
