We are terribly sorry, but even though they are incredibly cool, unfortunately LomoGoggles aren’t in fact a real invention – It’s a cheeky little April Fool’s by us folks at Lomography. The good news is that there are still plenty of ways to take a break from digital and enjoy all the wonders of analogue without these fashionable specs – head past the jump to find out how!
That’s right, we’re afraid to say LomoGoggles weren’t in fact invented by Lomographic scientists but by a team of pranksters here at Lomography for April Fool’s Day! As much as we’d love to see an invention that can hide digital devices, one doesn’t exist right now. But what does exist is a ton of different ways you can take a break from digital whenever you feel like it. Why not try out one of our Analogue Day Activities for some non-digital fun? Then you can show us analogue photos of your activities in the My Analogue Life Photo Contest! Or dare to be different and take a digital break by showing us your craziest analogue adventures in the My Analogue Life Video Contest.
Also in just a couple of weeks’ time on April 12th, we’ll be having huge events celebrating analogue at Film Photography Day across the globe. Check out where the events are happening and join us for the fun!
Did you have a blast celebrating all things analog last Film Photography Day? We highly suggest bringing out more bottles of champagne and tossing the confetti once more. The party is just starting for our winners!
Although she is a trained photographer, Ines quit her job and continued with photography only as a hobby. Luckily she always has enough time for that. Ines creates beautiful, expressive portraits. Recently she did this in her hometown, Brunswick, and transformed the city to a real dream setting with a unique swirly bokeh. Her weapon of choice? The New Petzval Art Lens, of course!
In this article, I'll show you how the Lomo LC-A loaded with the versatile Ilford HP5+ can make the most out of a hazy morning. To capture the whirlwind of a bicycle race, I pushed the film to ISO 800. The legendary Minitar 1 lens and this classic Ilford film are a perfect combination if you love black and white photos. Take a look after the jump!
LomoChrome Turquoise was especially concocted to give your pictures a whole new look. Watch as the lighter colors in your shots become tinted in varying hues of chilled blue, while greens transform into illustrious emerald and natural blues turn a wonderfully sunny gold – perfect for color-rich daylight shots!
Film has soul, that second layer of grain and haze. It is a time capsule if we're sentimental, a happy pill if nostalgic. But what if we exaggerate this time-worn look? Imperfection becomes a creative element.
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!
