We are not only Lomographers, but we are Lomographers who love animals! They make for great photography subjects for one thing, on top of the love and joy they bring to our lives. We thought, well, how cool would it be to do a film swap specifically of our pets?! Check out the results after the jump.
Breyer and I both have LC-Wide cameras and chose that as our weapon of choice for this film swap. The film was first run through my camera with shots of my cat Charlee, a lioness of a Tabby and Himalayan mix. The second run was done during a workshop with the Canadian Chihuahua Rescue and Transport with William, the long-haired chihuahua and his friends. Normally, my cat would hide away from any chance of being near a dog, but I’d say it’s quite a different story in these shots.
This was our first collaboration and I think there can still be some improvements made, but we’re definitely into this film swap idea. Look forward to more “Mixed breed” photos coming up!
The Lomo LC-Wide boasts the newly-developed 17mm Minigon Ultra-Wide Angle lens. This 35mm camera wonder is the perfect companion for your photo expeditions. It produces eye-catching splashes of colour with astonishing saturation and contrasts with the added versatility of 3 different formats. Open up to a new photographic experience with the LC-Wide, available in our Shop.
Dogs (and cats) are man's best friend and pet owners will agree that they bring bundles of joy to our daily lives. Pets deserve to be the star of photo shoots, as much as they deserve a special spot in our lives.
In celebration of Film Photography Day Lomography Soho gave our top community members the chance to shoot a camera they hadn't tried before. The results are currently being exhibited in the Soho store until May 28. Read on for full exhibition details and interviews with the contributors.
With the 68th Cannes Film Festival kicking off today we thought we'd hold our very own film screening right here featuring, in no particular order, some of the best, well-crafted LomoKino videos by our fellow lomographers in the community. From documentary-like shorts to horror, comedy, romance, action, the surreal, and everything in between, we've got you covered. Bring out the popcorn!
Ever since light painting was invented, it inspired artists from all around the globe to magical creations that capture hidden movements and reinvent the world we live in. "Life is a fairy tale, stay wild little child!" is what they want to tell us. Bringing light to life became the next challenge for anyone rigged with a film camera and a creative mind.
Now, how can you take your analogue light paintings from the ordinary to the outstanding? After the carriage came the car, so we definitely need some spacy inventions to follow the old school light pen. So here it is, our new best friend: The Pixelstick!
Lomography NYC is celebrating Film Photography Day for the third consecutive year. We are inviting all lomographers and analog enthusiasts to mark your calendars and come join us on Saturday, April 11. To commemorate this day, we have organized an exciting line-up of events including live music and drinks!
Are you ready for an adrenaline rush? A little while ago, we teamed up with the snowboard and film-making collective Yougofirst and gave them a LomoKino and some film rolls to play with. After a season of crazy riding, jumps and tricks, they have finished their latest movie HETEROTOPIA which features footage shot with our 35mm movie-maker. We had the chance to catch up with Vid and Matic from the collective about the new movie and their experiences shooting analogue on the slopes. It's also our pleasure to showcase the movie here!
Aside from being an immensely talented lomographer, what makes him a perfect LomoGuru is his burning desire to share his knowledge. The city where he lives is full of people who are interested in analog photography, but the lack of easy access to film and equipment poses a challenge for them to pursue their passion. To keep them motivated, Hugo organizes workshops and tours on different film photography techniques and DIY tricks. Let's give a loud round of applause to Hugo Pereira, better known in the community as zulupt, our LomoGuru from Marinha Grande, Portugal!
