We welcome the month of September by reminiscing an affair we can never forget. An affair we have kept for years, an affair that holds a place very dear to our heart.
A Lomographic affair, that is. Our first time with a Lomography camera that have brought us delight and a growing curiousity for all things related to film photography. This is what we will remember in this newest Magazine series of ours!
Looking back, my first Lomo Affair was with a Fisheye No. 2. It was around two years ago during the month of November. Famous for its ultra wide-angle lens that lets you experience a hemispherical view, I found the Fisheye a fun yet elegant beauty out of the Lomography family!
At first it was intimidating but it built a lot of excitement inside my analogue mind! Let’s say that the Fisheye fulfilled my Lomographic curiosities; Will I get good results? Will my Fisheye Lomographs be really “Fisheye-like”? What if the flash and MX button won’t work? It was an ocean of questions washed away by this black and white stunner!
After having my first roll developed, I must confess that the Fisheye didn’t bring me down. The flash worked fine, the Fisheye effect looks awesome, and I sure had a great time using it! It was a great Lomo Affair, indeed! And thanks to this camera, my affair for Lomography continued to develop.
How about you? How was your first Lomo Affair? We would love to know how it all started! Drop me a line at email@example.com and tell us all about it! And don’t miss this space for there are more Lomo Affairs to come! Ciao! :)
In December last year James Wright, editor and creative director of So It Goes Magazine, went on a two-week trip to Sri Lanka, "a place so long on our bucket list, but up until then, as yet unvisited," he writes on the first of his three-part photo diary. Herein is the first of his series that chronicles his adventures, highlighted by a selection of breathtaking images of the Sri Lankan countryside and the locals, among many other images, captured with his trusty photographic companions: the Leica MP, Lomo LC-A+, and an assortment of films including the LomoChrome Purple.
For a short time, Blaine Vernicek, otherwise known as clownshoes in our Community, needed to be away from his beloved muse, Miss Katie, and stay in another state because of his new job. But thanks to his Lomo Smena Symbol, he was able to bring with him photographs of his sweetheart that somehow helped him forget the unnerving distance between them. Read on to find out more about this heartwarming story in this installment of My First Lomo Affair!

This August, we bring you back to your roots and explore the wonders of nature! First, we cook up a storm with a film soup experiment. Followed by nature photowalks at beautiful scenic parks in Singapore to unearth the tips & tricks of trouble exposure, as well as the unique methods to perfect our macro shots. To cap off the learning month, we'll gather on a cozy Friday night for a new special sharing series by the Lomography Community -- with Sharing Session #1: Nature.
Recently, we’ve been digging through all our LC-A 120 negatives from when we first started testing the new camera. During this search, we had our very own finding Vivian Maier moment when we unearthed a bunch of photos shot by the super-talented dopic whilst he was on vacation in Japan last year. We totally love these shots and couldn’t resist sharing them with you!
These photographs, recently digitized through the efforts of the Cushing Center at the Yale School of Medicine, come from the collection of patient photography of Harvey Cushing, M.D., the father of neurosurgery.
Originally from USA, biochemistry student Hayden Williams traveled halfway across the world to continue his studies in Hong Kong. Going to the Far East opened an opportunity for him to explore what he truly love the most: photography. His adventures in his current home, no matter how spontaneous, are captured in well-executed double exposure photographs. Meet our newcomer of the week, haydenwilliams.
