I lent my Actionsampler to my friend Alicia and she become "lomographer" for a day. Do you want to see what she did?
Maybe you can recognize her face because she is in a lot of pics in my lomohome.
I chose her because I know she loves photography and she is always interested in my cameras and photographs. So I decided to lend her one of my analogue cameras during one of the days we spent with our friends in El Medano during the Holy Week. She chose the Actionsampler or “the movement´s camera” as she says.
I developed the film and I sent her the results. Then I interviewed her asking for the experience.
When was the last time you shot with an analogue camera?
I think it was 6 years ago.
How would you describe the experience?
First it was exciting but afterwards I feel a bit disappointed with the results
Which is the pic that you liked the most and why?
I like the one with the shadow, I love the silhouette and the contrast
Imagine you have the the ability to teleport, where would you go with this camera and a lot of film?
Never Never Land. Because there are a lot of children, colors and movement. And there are no parents telling you what to do, so you can take a lot of interesting photos.
Which analogue camera would you use?
A Canon reflex camera.
After trying the Actionsampler , would you like to shoot with analogue cameras again?
I start itching for it…
What do you think about the current trend towards vintage and analogue stuff?
I think it is romantic, but on the other hand, I think that it has brought creative photography nearer to a lot of people.
And here are the photos that Alicia took. I understand that she was a little disappointed with the results. I felt the same with my first shots with the Actionsampler. Most of people and objects were out of the frame. But I like her pics a lot.
What do you think about the results?. Write something in the comments to encourage her to shoot again with analogue cameras. Thanks a lot.
The Actionsampler Chrome snaps up a series of four images on one 35mm print. This multilens camera records your subject’s movement and is now coated in sleek silver. See it with the rest of our Multilens cameras here!
What exactly do I feel while waiting for my Lomo'Instant photos to be developed? I have to say I get a mix of "Surprise me, dear Lomo!" but also some "Did I capture it as I wanted?" kind of thought. No matter the school of thought, with the Splitzer you can add so many cool effects to your photos you'll definitely embrace it!
Every summer, my soul screams for a lazy, hot day back at my parents' home, for some good food, relaxation, and catching up with childhood friends. This year is no different, so I went back down to my small hometown in the very northeast of Belgium to enjoy a perfect laid back day doing nothing and everything. And of course, I brought my analogue cameras along to eternalize all of these small but grand moments in life.

Two years ago I swore to myself, I'll be coming back soon!" This October my chance finally came and I flew for the second time to New York City to visit my dear colleagues in the Lomography Gallery Store New York. What I didn’t see coming, though, is the opportunity to test a new secret film during my trip.
Did you miss this year's Film Photography Day celebration? Here's a recap of all the events that happened in April, in honor of our love for analogue photography.

For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.
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)!
