Dear Toronto Lomographers, we need some info about your city!
Dear Toronto Lomographers,
What up? North that is. We’re wondering if you Great White Northerners could tell us a bit about your city. We’re thinking of coming up for a visit, and perhaps you could give us some tips?
For example, where do you like to hang out? Where would the typical Lomographer go to take some pictures, grab a bite to eat, and do a little shopping? What neighborhoods have a cool art scene? Where are the best bars? The must-see design shops? Where do students meet up on weekends?
You get where we’re going with this, right? Toronto is a city we would love to get to know better, and if you could help us feel at home there, perhaps we’ll make ourselves more comfortable…
Ever since light painting was invented, it inspired artists from all around the globe to magical creations that capture hidden movements and reinvent the world we live in. "Life is a fairy tale, stay wild little child!" is what they want to tell us. Bringing light to life became the next challenge for anyone rigged with a film camera and a creative mind.
Now, how can you take your analogue light paintings from the ordinary to the outstanding? After the carriage came the car, so we definitely need some spacy inventions to follow the old school light pen. So here it is, our new best friend: The Pixelstick!
Here at Lomography, we are passionate about your passions. Whether it’s a photo of your pets, from your travels or celebrations, we absolutely love it when you share your precious moments with us through your astonishing snaps! We have also grown particularly fond of extreme sports and addicted to rushes of adrenaline through the years with adventure-seekers in the community. We are absolutely thrilled to tell you about our amazing new collaboration with Nixon, and offer you the chance to win amazing prizes!
We gave the Colorsplash Microsite a grand redesign. You can find everything that you need to know about Colorsplash products, plus some techniques to try and galleries to inspire you, in this new and improved site! Come take a look and let us know what you think.
You are probably already familiar with our German Petzval LomoAmigo Steffen Böttcher, aka Stilpirat. He recently released his very first audio book about his adventures as photographer, "Abenteuer Fotografie," featuring the beautiful Petzval lens on the cover. Through this competition, our German-speaking community gets the chance to win three of his audio books as well as his photo book about Ghana. So what do you need to do? Show us your lomographic adventures!
Read on dear friend and I will weave a story for you. There may be more questions than answers raised by this peculiar tale. But if it’s clarity you seek, have no fear, things will become clear in time (they always do, don’t they?). So rub the Sandman’s dust from your sleepy eyes and take a journey with me. If you think you have an answer when we reach the end, please do share it in the comments!
World Pinhole Day is happening soon, and we're inviting you to join in on the celebration by attending our special workshops! See the complete list of participating cities from all over the world and tell your friends about it.
‘Hang over’ in this case doesn’t mean you need to guzzle gallons of beer or pints of whiskey. The Lomo LC-A-to-Z tells us to hang over, which means that we should try shooting from above or shoot subjects that are in a way higher spot than we are.
