The Lomokino has officially dawned a new do’ with the release of the Mubi Edition! We were lucky enough to host a screening of the movie Ashes’s by director Apichatpong Weerasethakul . Our trusty ol’ popcorn machine was also put to good use as guests munched on popcorn that was ready to order. We also could not forget the classic movie snacks like gummi bears and red vines. Guests stayed after the screening for some good tunes and of course more snacks, maybe even a beer or two. Check out all the fun that was had!

"Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter" was officially launched last Wednesday, March 18. The opening night screening was held at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMa) and was documented using a Fisheye camera. Here's how the night went.
The skies were busy with magic today — or maybe it was just the solar eclipse that caused all that ruckus? Decked out in space-age goggles and other various sun viewing paraphernalia, groups of people gathered as the moon moved between the sun and the earth this morning across Europe. Only a few lucky folks witnessed the total eclipse, and here at Vienna HQ, the greatest moment of the partial eclipse happened at 10:45 A.M. and lasted only a few minutes. We stopped everything we were doing to join the sky watchers crew and share in this astonishing moment. Check out these brilliant solar-inspired shots to celebrate the occasion!
It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.
We celebrated the launch of the Lomo'instant Wide camera in the Lomography Soho store with live music from Locks, a bottomless pit of mulled wine and enough tasty doughnuts to sink a battleship! We even managed to take some snaps of the night, including some rather adorable pictures of a tiny kitten.
As the weather warms up and the sun begins to shine, it's time to take your cameras off the shelf and into action. April is a special month because of Film Photography Day, marking a special date for us film photographers. We need you to help celebrate the wonders of film photography and keep the magic alive. #filmphotographyday2015
Lomography Gallery Store Soho ran our first ever Lomo'instant workshops at the Wilderness Festival in the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside. The weather was glorious and we were fully booked all weekend. We managed capture the festival spirit with an LCA Wide and a Lomo'instant of our own.
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!
Some people say instant photos bring about a feeling of nostalgia. Although I often use the Lomo'Instant Camera with different crazy accessories such as the Splitzer and color gels, I have to agree there is something about it — dreamy vignettes maybe? — that always makes me want to go back in time and experience it all over again. In the name of analogue photography and good old memories, we passed by some classic spots in Vienna and took one shot after the other. Take a closer look at our gallery.
Creating a movie, no matter how short it is, requires a certain amount of discipline. For it to be coherent, one must keep his focus throughout the entire process - from shooting the scenes to editing the clips. With that, we are truly grateful for the effort that these lomographers put into making these LomoKino movies.
