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!
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!
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!
While Matthieu Vautrin dreams of reliving the California days of old, we remain enchanted by his experimental instant shots of the present. The outcomes are photos imbued either with deadpan humor, or an enigmatic ghostly luster. In this brief interview, Matthieu tells us about the good times he's been having with the Lomo'Instant!
I enjoy architecture and the large public sculptures we often find in cities. The following tells of my adventures with the Diana F+ from November 2013 onwards. Serendipity plays a part but some planning helps me create unusual images of oft-photographed places.
We are proud to announce that the Lomography shop now stocks Lumi products, which allow you to print your favorite analogue photos and all manner of other fantastic things on fabric using the power of light! In this article, we want to tell you a bit more about Lumi and the way this special printing process works.
Did you ever think about the myth that we actually dream in Black & White? No colors, maybe no truth behind it anyways. But we know for a fact that you can create the most dreamy photographs with an analogue camera. And for that you need the right film. Scroll down and find out which B&W film is the film of your dreams!
People seek extraordinary experiences while traveling, but not everyone gets to have an adventure of a lifetime. When lomographer Stephane Heinz (popularly known as vicuna in the Lomography community) saw the opportunity, he took the chance to travel and live miles away from his hometown in France. He and his wife, Kathi, came back home with a luggage full of valuable experiences and life lessons. Vicuna tells us about his four-year adventure in French Polynesia in this travel special.
