The DIY craze is all around the Lomography Community nowadays. We just can't really help working on our own when it comes to craft, eh?
But did you think that Lomographers just got into the DIY craze? If yes, then darling you got it wrong! For even long ago, Lomographers have been gaga over the thought of “doing-it-yourself.” So gaga that it was even a huge part of the LC-A Race!
Just like this diary from spendospend which was a part of the LC-A race. Spendospend was a racer for the Euro Team 1 and he sure did an awesome job with this DIY diary (a very important task of the race, I tell you!) Just look at those swift handwritings, cut boxes and photographs, and that lovely purple case! Just can’t help but adore it!
Here’s another one from racer dirklancer who was part of North America Team 1. Another creatively done journal which he, of course, did by himself! Check out photos from his journal below.
Finally, let us not forget the packages from various LC-A race teams which all arrived beautifully done in DIY. Check out those LC-A’s and its adornments!
Aren’t they just lovely! And it is such an awesome thing to know that they were done with creative hands and analogue lovin’ hearts! It makes us all excited for the upcoming *LC-Wide Race* and the DIY stuff that will result out of it! Hooray for DIY!
There are quite a few perks that come with working for a film photography company, and the best perk of all is testing out the latest cameras. I can remember buying my LC-A back in 2009 and being really inspired to shoot film again. When the LC-A 120 came along, I couldn't wait to try it out around London. Join me as I test out this super medium format beauty.

From documentary-like shorts to horror, comedy, romance, action, the surreal, and everything in between, we've got you covered. Bring out the popcorn!
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.
Aside from developing his own black and white negatives, he also crafts pinhole cameras out of ordinary boxes. His dreamy, soft-focus lomographs even inspired some of the community members to go lens-less on their next photo shoot. Let's get to know more about our newcomer of the week from Sheffield, United Kingdom, sandy_sun!

Lomography is a network of working photographers and serious hobbyists. It gives equal space to both clusters; after all craft is the main attraction, whether it is Mark Andersen’s thoughtful framing or Hodachrome’s vibrant doubles. And when technique and skill are the topic, questions about the photographer’s training also crop up.
What’s not to love about the Lomo LC-Wide? If you are a fan of wide angle lenses or Lomography, you probably have one in your collection. The LC-Wide is a powerful camera with many fun features to get creative when shooting. Best of all, all these are already built into the camera.
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.
We tidy up the house when we know visitors are coming. It’s not just common courtesy. Our homes represent how we live and how we want to be seen. More than that, the arrangement of furniture and ornaments may influence what we do during our downtime. Want hush or energy? Try the color palettes, textures and shapes in these curated blogs.
Do the photographs in our community often leave you tongue-tied? You can still let your fellow lomographer know how much you appreciate their work by clicking the "Like" button. No matter how simple, this gesture can inspire anyone to go on with their analogue adventure. Here are the top photo likers of 2014.
