First, Lomography launched a new 110 format film in Black and White (Lomography Orca 110) and then they launched a new 110 format camera (Fisheye Baby 110), so everybody was sure that they would launch a color 110 format film. And so it was. The colorful Tiger cub is here.
Is this camera familiar to you? The Kodak Pocket Instamatic is twice as large as a compact digital camera of nowadays. It was one of the most well-liked 110 format cameras in the 1980’s and remained popular into the 1990’s. But since then it fell in disuse. Lately it was very difficult to get 110 film. In fact, this format of film stopped being produced in 2009.
But in last May, Lomography recovered the 110 format film when they launched a 110 format film in Black and White, which they called “Orca”. They also launched the Fisheye Baby 110 camera and I was sure that they would launch a color 110 format film so I decided to wait for it. First I thought of recovering my brother´s Kodak Instamatic but suddenly I found this beautiful Holga Micro 110.
At least, they announced the launch of the Lomography Color Tiger 110 and I ordered 6 rolls last July. I had a lot of problems with Spanish postal service and the pack finally arrived in September.
So next weekend I went to the Teide National Park. At noon we were walking around an area with white sand son the photos are very bright.
In the afternoon we were in other area with darker colors and we were playing with a mirror. The photos I took here are my favourite shots of the roll.
Finally, when the sunset was coming we arrived to El Médano beach and I tested the film with less light. You can notice the film grain but I love the results anyway.
In short I give it a good grade and I will get new 110 format cameras to test the Tiger film indoors or with flash.
Lomography UK was lucky enough to test an LC-A 120 prototype in store and it was glorious! We used colour and black and white film to capture the camera at its finest. It was everything you would expect from the LC-A but in full frame 38mm f/4.5 120 film. It's LOVE.
Against the grain of serious photography, Tony Ray-Jones used commercial color film to document American streets. This was a pivotal lesson in choosing colorful subjects, something he would later master in his black and white series.
Summer is full of color so using black and white film might not be the first thing that comes to mind. Yet the summer sun works out beautifully on black and white film. Like to give it a try? I've come across the best light at the train station during rush hour!
I've photographed this city many times in the past—in color, black and white, and even in redscale. One day in March, the streets of Manila once again became my subject. Only this time, they turned into otherworldly places as the LomoChrome Turquoise drastically shifted its colors...at least on film.
Since Lomography launched its new Petzval 58 Bokeh Control Art Lens project on Kickstarter, we've been seeing a variety of pictures, from images of snow monkeys in Japan to behind-the-scenes shots of New York Fashion Week. Many of these pictures were shot with digital cameras, but we've yet to see how the Petzval 58 performs on an analog Canon Rebel camera loaded with black and white, and x-pro film. Join us on a trip through the heart of New York's Chinatown during the Lunar New Year Parade.

The best thing about working for Lomography is having first access to new products. Imagine everyone's excitement when the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Art Lens 2.8/32M was delivered to the headquarters in Vienna, where members of the Lomography team took turns testing this tiny yet powerful optic on various cameras. Meanwhile, Tom Bates from Marketing teased out the idyllic and colorful possibilities of shooting with the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 lens on a trip to the UK countryside.
Mysterious apparitions and other inexplicable phenomena on film, or generally speaking, for that matter, are as highly debated topics today as they were many decades ago. In 1934, a certain Mr. C.P. MacCarthy of 15 Wilkinson Street, Sheffield held a lecture at 76 Clarkehouse Road located in the same city to "demonstrate under test conditions Fake Psychic Photography" before an invited committee. MacCarthy's demonstration was accompanied by a series of photographs titled "Psychic Photography From a New Angle."
This article is a tribute to the great Portuguese film director Manoel de Oliveira, who died last April 2. With an old Praktica loaded with a roll of black and white film, I captured so enthusiastically his city Oporto (Porto) with its famous Ribeira district, the most characteristic of the Lusitanian town. It was here that more than 70 years ago, Manoel De Oliveira created a timeless masterpiece: "Aniki-Bòbò"!
In a time of black and white fashion photographs, Guy Bourdin used his vibrant colored images to usher in a new era in fashion photography. See a collection of his prized work in this ongoing exhibit at the Somerset House in UK.
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!
Lomography Singapore plays host to Parallel Planets’ first exhibition, "Façades: Neo-Noir Portraits Exhibition," featuring all-analog photography: a sea of black and white film portraits. This exhibition serves as a platform where both local and international photographers can express themselves by injecting individual perspectives into their craft. It also encourages viewers to look through the lens of the photographers, to see the subjects as who they are – flawed, alive, and breathing – and to also see beyond the façades we all choose to don.

A weekend without a lomowalk seems bad, at least for me. One Saturday morning, I decided to join my friends in their lomowalk. It was all cloudy at first but it didn't stop me from going out and walking. I brought my new Nikon FM2 and some expired rolls, just to test my camera. Was it just me being sleepy, or was my Nikon FM2 acting up? My photos turned out grainy, pale, and, in my opinion, looking so 1990s?
