Accidental mistakes are always - I repeat - always loved here in Lomography!
Once there was this case over my Fisheye 2. I was happily excited loading a 35mm film over the back part, covered it and looking for some people to shoot with. The moment I pressed its shutter of it stucked! It doesn’t pop back anymore!
So what I did is that I advanced the film on to the next frame but every time I advance it, since the shutter button is tucked inside, the shutter clicks automatically and I accidentally take pictures. I wasn’t able to find this out since I was forwarding the advance film and hearing clicks of the Fisheye 2 a dozen of times. What I got is some mysterious fisheye-panorama in a crazy way!
Check out the photos! This has been an accident! Good thing the shutter button popped back out and all was back to normal again.
As Steve Jobs puts it, "creativity is just connecting things." It's all about tracing one's experiences and pushing the boundaries of what's already known to establish new things. The Lomography community is no stranger to these instances. In fact, the community is filled with brilliant minds who are always ready to refine existing techniques and look for innovative ways to express their visions and ideas. Here are just a few of the creative lomographers we've come to love over the years.
When someone asks me why I love Burkina Faso so much and what's so special about it, I answer without any hesitation: the people. There's something in this country that connects the people together very strongly. Here, foreign visitors are warmly welcomed. And honestly, I think that the portraits I'm most proud of and that I really love are those shot in Burkina Faso. "Why," you ask?
We love Asher Moss' work. He's been our LomoAmigo for quite some time and is always eager to try new stuff. We recently gave him the Lomo'Instant camera to experiment with, and here are some of his shots.

Here at the Lomography NYC Gallery Store, we are always testing and playing with our cameras and accessories. We asked our staff to test the new Lomo'Instant camera. This time Yael, our lab manager, shared a few pictures shot around her personal life.
Previously, Lomography hosted a rumble in conjunction with the release of the movie, "Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter." We then had the filmmakers pick the lucky winners for this competition, and here are the results!
