Earlier this week, we had our own go at a Lomo Caterpillar at the Lomography headquarter offices in Vienna in anticipation of the Lomography World Photo Caterpillar that is going down tomorrow at Lomography Gallery Stores worldwide. Check out some of the funniest shots from the middle of the caterpillar after the jump.
Standing in line for a while and then getting back to the end of the line. That idea doesn’t really excite you? Well, add some analogue cameras, different types of film and maybe even some props and you’re in for some fun time! That is what a Lomo Caterpillar is all about. In anticipation of the Lomography World Photo Caterpillar that is going down this Saturday at Lomography Gallery Stores worldwide, we made our own Lomo caterpillar at the headquarter offices in Vienna Check out some of the funniest shots from the Vienna caterpillar:
A Lomo Caterpillar basically consists of people standing in a line and taking a portrait of the person standing behind them. They then hand the camera to that person after taking their shot and that person repeats the process. After taking your shot, you move to the end of the line. This process can be continued until you have reached a certain destination or simply have run out of film. Any kind of props to use in the shots are sure going to add even more fun to the caterpillar. The resulting shots are then edited together to make a stop-motion animation. Of course, we also edited our shots together. You can check out the video right here.
Lassi, one of our awesome Petzval Lens Kickstarter backers, came to visit us at Lomography HQ this week. We had a brilliant time introducing him to the Lomography team, showing him some of the Vienna sights and generally having fun. As part of the trip, we organized a special photo-shoot in which we took photos with a vintage Petzval lens on a Sinar P2 4x5 camera. Head past the jump to find out more about the great time we had with Lassi and to see some old-school Petzval shots!

The skies were busy with magic today — or maybe it was just the solar eclipse that caused all that ruckus? Decked out in space-age goggles and other various sun viewing paraphernalia, groups of people gathered as the moon moved between the sun and the earth this morning across Europe. Only a few lucky folks witnessed the total eclipse, and here at Vienna HQ, the greatest moment of the partial eclipse happened at 10:45 A.M. and lasted only a few minutes. We stopped everything we were doing to join the sky watchers crew and share in this astonishing moment. Check out these brilliant solar-inspired shots to celebrate the occasion!
The folks at the Lomography HQ in Vienna were recently invited by the Theater an der Gumpendorferstrasse (TAG) to cover a performance of "Der diskrete Charme der smarten Menschen," a stage adaptation of the Luis Buñuel-helmed film, "Der diskrete Charme der Bourgeoisie (The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie). See some of the resulting analogue snapshots in this gallery post!
