We are happy to announce the newest feature on Lomography: the Endless Photo Wall - a collection of 12,000 of the most popular photos.
We are happy to announce the newest feature on Lomography: the Endless Photo Wall. It might not look that much different at first as you see 60 photos. But each click on “Load More Photos” loads 60 additional photos and adds them to the wall. So how many times can you click you might ask – well endless stops at 12,000, so after 199 clicks you come to an end… See the wall in action here:
Which leads us directly to a challenge: if you click through yourself through this big wall and come to the very last photo: be sure to leave a comment on that photo. Everyone who leaves a comment there gets 5 piggies – deadline is Sunday end of day (Hawaii time)!
So how is this wall created? Every day we take the 12,000 most popular photos, shuffle them and present them to you in sliced pieces. We’ve also added a preview function: to fit all photos in our grid we sometimes have to crop them. But as you know: Horizon shots or Diana shots don’t fit exactly in – but just move your mouse over a photo and you see a preview.
Please let us know what you think! And would you like to have a feature like this in your homes as well?
LomoAmigo Heison Ng has once again shot a brilliant series of photographs. Last time, he shared photographs taken with the New Russar+ Lens mounted on his Sony A7 Camera during a trip to Paris and Barcelona. This time around, he created minimalist yet moody black and white photos, still with the New Russar+ Lens. Brace yourselves for his newest collection of New Russar+ Lens photographs!
There is nothing better than a photo shot at the perfect moment. Henri Cartier-Bresson's principle on "The Decisive Moment" is a principle that we should still follow to this day. A perfectly-timed photo creates impact, whether it's one of a friend jumping into the pool or a couple emerging from the ceremony on their wedding day. For this rumble, we want to see that breathtaking moment, shot at the perfect time. And you showed us what it's like to be on time.
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!
In February, we hosted a Lomo'Instant Accessory Challenge in collaboration with GrabCAD. The idea of this competition was to stoke the creative ones and encourage them to be bold in experimenting with the accessories that come with Lomography's new instant camera.
Aside from the Magazine, going through the User Blogs is another way to keep tabs on the latest happening in the community. Throughout the year, it was filled with articles on new discoveries, thought-provoking opinions, and exciting exhibits that surely entertained, challenged, and inspired everyone.

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!
Together with the people behind MELT! Festival, we asked for your most beautiful festival moments in pictures. It's time to reveal the winner of two festival tickets (including camping) and more Lomography prizes.
Our new website is now about 2 months old. After rolling out the most important features in the beginning, we have now been fine tuning them and working on the overall performance of the website. Taking a step back, we now want to ask what you think about it!
