This is a tribute to Juergen Teller, a great fashion photographer who continues to work with analogue cameras. In the 1990s he radically changed the way to make fashion photography. His models appear "soap and water", without heavy make-up, and his images seem taken like an amateur photographer. Between his nice works, there is a photos that I like so much, taken in Cuba and called "The Girl with the Broken Nose." Take a look after the jump!
The wait is over! Unveil the all new LOMO' INSTANT with us this November with a photo hunt and a demo day! We've also prepared a stellar lineup of workshops just for you. Join us for a month full of activities to nourish your photographic minds!
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!
It's time to come out of winter hibernation! The warm weather of spring is around the corner, and it's time to celebrate. From a bar crawl to a community group exhibition, we're doing it all. So grab your kilts and clovers and come join us for another round of fun!
Photographer Brigette Bloom's series "Float On" and her rather unusual film soak recipe has been making the rounds in the Internet recently. But just in case you haven't seen it yet, Brigette has given us the green light to republish her recipe right here in the magazine's Tipster section! As she has so rightly put it, "Let’s all support each other and spread the creative energy!" Check out Brigette's tipster right after the cut!
Lomography loves the Volkshotel in Amsterdam, and vice versa! And so we decided to join forces for a very cool rumble: show us your best analogue shots and get the chance to spend a night at Volkshotel for free! How, what, when? Check out all the details and join.
We're ecstatic to read an in-depth review of the Lomography Petzval Lens, from the cool folks over at The Phoblographer. It's exciting to find out that, like us, they are in-love with the Petzval Lens too, so much that they gave it an impressive 4/5 rating! If you're thinking of getting a Petzval Lens, you'll find this featured review very useful. Check out an excerpt and the link to the full article after the jump!
It was her sweetheart who encouraged her to pursue taking photographs using film cameras. After her first try at using a Fisheye No. 2, she got immediately hooked! Let's all welcome Elaidia Oliveros, or simply elaidia in our Community, our Newcomer of the Week!
If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!
