Shooting from the hip is an essential part of the Lomographic way of life. There's no right or wrong way to do it. Just remember not to hide behind your camera!
Looking through a viewfinder can severely limit your Lomographic experience. You’re often missing out on what’s happening above you below you or in your very immediate vicinity. So here’s what to do: open your mind and break free from conventions, achieve a great shot by thinking fast and just clicking — a touch of good luck always helps and magic is never too far away.
Try the shot from the hip with your Fisheye Baby 110 to experience an absolutely free and boundless dimension of 170o degree sights:
The Fisheye Baby 110 Cameras are fully working miniature versions of the Fisheye No. 2 designed especially to fit 110 film. They capture the world in full circle and enable you to produce perfect Fisheye pictures. The Fisheye Baby 110s come with a bulb mode and are able to capture multiple exposures too. Load them with Lomography Orca B&W 100 and dive into the long forgotten world of 110 photography! Head to the 110 Camera Microsite for more information.
Don't be afraid of taking photos indoors or under low-light conditions. As long as there's light around us, the camera will be ready to shoot. Here's a tipster for you. Just remember to catch the lights!
This photograph just rendered us speechless with its vibrant colors and shadowy vignettes, not to mention that cute little pooch hiding behind the grass! Congratulations to yonosoydeaqui for having our Photo of the Day!
We love sharing photos! So, with the recent release of the beloved Lomo'Instant camera, we thought it would be a great idea to look at some of the best ways to share your instants with the world.

Check out these 5 awesome ways you can do just that!
Exactly seven years ago, I bought this camera from Indonesia's local Lomography community. I remember having some savings in my bank account and just spending it all on this camera. At that time, I browsed the microsite for the Lomography Fisheye No.2 and immediately fell in love with it! Coincidentally, my friend who introduced me to Lomography just bought this same camera for his birthday. My life has changed ever since I had the Fisheye, my first lomographic camera.
There are many possible reasons for taking pictures. It could be to document an event, to capture breathtaking scenery, to preserve a fond memory, or simply, to have a snapshot of someone close to your heart. Whatever the reason, there's almost always a story behind a picture, no matter how significant or trivial it may be. And for lomographers, nothing beats the feeling of having that story unfold in your hand, in the form of a print. If you want a quick keepsake from that treasured moment or a snapshot of that special someone though, you can have it instantly, through Lomo'Instant Stories!

It is clear from the wild variety of photos in the website that Lomographers will do just about anything to get a good shot. Some swap rolls with friends overseas while others concoct unheard-of film soups. And then there are the masters of operations, the ones who spy and crouch their way to a share-worthy picture. This is one such story.
