Memories in an Instant


One of the things we can't ever deny about film photography is the waiting. The waiting of your film to rewind, the waiting of its processing, the waiting of its developing, and a whole lot more!

That is why film photography always needs patience. We have to take things slow and wait for the lovely film photographs to come into life. But sometimes, when we want fast results, we turn to instant film and thank it for saving us from all the wait!

That’s why in this week’s gallery post, we have selected 50 of our favorite instant film photographs uploaded in our Community. No specific film cameras, just instant film photographs we adore! Cheers!

    So here’s what we’ve been working on: an all new

    For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on won't be reflected on and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.
