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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.

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!
As a scientist, Pierrick is often curious about the mechanism behind how things work. His first brush with analog photography is no exception. Eager to know more about the inner workings of a film camera, he started from scratch and tested his DIY skill with the Konstuktor camera.
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!
There are things that artist Valeriie Liin can't leave the house without: her earphones, two notebooks, keys to her home in Taiwan, and a little color palette for painting. It's not always that she can paint, though, so for those times she turns to her cameras.
Lomography warmly invites everyone to join us on a trip to Rockaway Beach on Saturday, July 25. We will be conducting a couple of workshops to make sure you're well equipped onyour summer beach escapades.
Singapore, like Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong, is a likely stopover when you fly far. The city is a tiny urbanized hub but it's very favorable if you know some high-spirited locals. I was lucky to hook up with king kimbo (@hakimbo), who showed me around. He took my lame limbs to the Gardens by the Bay, an amazing place which was visually striking. I was hugging some artificial trees there when I found a baby—a very big baby.
