I believe in love at first sight and Lomo did steal my heart with the colorful photos produced by the Lomographic tools and films.
I started off with Lomography by using the Lomo Fisheye 2. My cousin and I shared some money to buy our first Lomo Camera. At that time, I did not know much about Lomo. I just started shooting and shooting with different kinds of film. My first film that I bought is Agfa CT Precisa. Here are some of the first few shots using Fisheye 2 with Agfa CT Precisa:
And here are some more of the shots taken with my Fisheye 2:
After that, I ended up buying a LOMO LC-A straight away, as I was mesmerized by the Russian Glass Lens. The photos are sharp as ever and the colours produced are superb! These few photos are my first few shots with LC-A:
These were taken with Fuji Sensia 100 and Kodak EBX. My favorite would be the photo of the seats of the airplane. I randomly snapped those photos without thinking too much. And ‘VOILÀ!’, the outcome was better than I thought it would be.
I still have plenty to show, but I guess I would let you to explore through my albums to see more. Then it would be more thrilling!
Light Painting is a cool technique that we love to do when we're in the mood for experimenting with photos. It's super easy and fun, and it only requires a dark room, a friend or two to collaborate with, a camera with long exposure mode and a light painting tool to get started. Check out 50 of the most vibrant light painting photos taken by your fellow Lomographers after the cut!
I like to make and use masks with my Lomo'Instant camera, but sometimes they are too dominant. In coming up with more subtle masks, I found several that produced an interesting, distressed look, especially when paired with the camera flash and color gel strips. They're especially good for creating Halloween-themed photos.

This year marks the 70th anniversary of the publication of one of the most influential photography books ever, "Ballet" by the photographer, art director, and graphic designer Alexey Brodovitch. Brodovitch took a series of photos of classical dance in a very unconventional way, using very slow exposure times, trying to catch the true essence of Russian ballets. For this article, I took a series of photos at the Swing Crash Festival in my city, Como, held in June 2015.
In December last year James Wright, editor and creative director of So It Goes Magazine, went on a two-week trip to Sri Lanka, "a place so long on our bucket list, but up until then, as yet unvisited," he writes on the first of his three-part photo diary. Herein is the first of his series that chronicles his adventures, highlighted by a selection of breathtaking images of the Sri Lankan countryside and the locals, among many other images, captured with his trusty photographic companions: the Leica MP, Lomo LC-A+, and an assortment of films including the LomoChrome Purple.
Some people say instant photos bring about a feeling of nostalgia. Although I often use the Lomo'Instant Camera with different crazy accessories such as the Splitzer and color gels, I have to agree there is something about it — dreamy vignettes maybe? — that always makes me want to go back in time and experience it all over again. In the name of analogue photography and good old memories, we passed by some classic spots in Vienna and took one shot after the other. Take a closer look at our gallery.
