One thing that all Lomographers have in common is a ridiculous abundance of empty film canisters. Are you at a loss on what to do with them? Here's one thing you can try out!
One way to beat the summer heat is to always have popsicles ready in your fridge. No need to stock up on expensive ones though, as you can simply make plenty using your discard film canisters! The guys from Instructables did this little experiment. Try it out yourself!
Thing’s you’ll need:
Large masking tape
Your favorite juice!
1. Wash the canisters thoroughly with soap and water. Kodak has gone on record to say that the canister itself is not toxic, but you still have to wash it since you’re going to eat something from it.
2. Line up a strip of masking tape and carefully place the empty canisters
3. Carefully fill up the canisters with your beverage of choice
4. Wrap it with cling wrap, then insert the popsicle sticks.
5. Put them inside the freezer and wait in agony until they freeze
6. Eat and enjoy!

Tomorrow, April 26, marks World Pinhole Photography Day, and what better way to celebrate the occasion by taking your favorite pinhole camera out on an analog adventure?

Here’s what happens before we interview a photographer. We gush about the work though we have yet to find out the cameras and processes behind the brilliant composition or the light architecture. And even when they haven’t used a Lomo camera, we feature them anyway. But every once in a while comes a pro who uses one of our premium lenses at work and our fun cameras off-duty. This makes us mighty glad, more so when their images are good and worth sharing. We count cinematographer Michal Dabal's work among them.
One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.
