On the way through the rainy idyll of Scotland, a subterranean Lomo-surprise was expecting me in Dumbarton!
In May, I spent some days in Scotland. As I didn’t want to miss the highly praised Scottish scenery I went on an excursion to Loch Lomond. It’s close to Glasgow and according to Wikipedia it is the most beautiful lake in Scotland.
When I arrived in Balloch, I decided to hike a part of the “Three-Lochs-Way” down to the river Clyde.
Unfortunately, the weather was very Scottish and it started to rain soon. Even more unfortunately, it didn’t stop to rain anymore. Hence, I was hiking quite unmotivated through the fields and was quietly complaining about Scotland, the weather and everything else that came into my mind. Finally I arrived in Dumbarton, from where I wanted to catch the next bus back to Glasgow. I wasn’t able to find the correct bus stop right away and wandered about aimlessly through the city. While I was straying I came to the underpass at Strathleven Place. Imagine the situation: I’m soaked, cold, tired and as grumpy as the so-called cat. And then suddenly: Lomo pictures all over the place! I’m standing in an underpass of a Scottish small town and there are Lomo pictures everywhere.
That – and the fact that I found the bus soon afterwards – made my day. According to Lomography it is a project together with children from Dumbarton to make them experience their neighbourhood with different eyes. An excellent idea!
The best thing about working for Lomography is having first access to new products. Imagine everyone's excitement when the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Art Lens 2.8/32M was delivered to the headquarters in Vienna, where members of the Lomography team took turns testing this tiny yet powerful optic on various cameras. Meanwhile, Tom Bates from Marketing teased out the idyllic and colorful possibilities of shooting with the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 lens on a trip to the UK countryside.
It's late October in Copenhagen and summer was well and truly behind us. With the nights drawing in, the chances of going out with one of my cameras was slim. All was not lost at this time of year, however, as it allowed me time to focus on my own personal music projects—I am a professional composer/musician and audio engineer at my own studio by day.

It was a cold and cloudy winter day in 2012 when I came up with the idea of compiling photographs of people's faces. I decided that the most personal way to do it is through instant shots. They are one of a kind and you immediately have something in your hands.
What exactly do I feel while waiting for my Lomo'Instant photos to be developed? I have to say I get a mix of "Surprise me, dear Lomo!" but also some "Did I capture it as I wanted?" kind of thought. No matter the school of thought, with the Splitzer you can add so many cool effects to your photos you'll definitely embrace it!
In 2009, Neil Krug uploaded a commercial for Pulp Art Book on Youtube. In the comments section someone asked, “Does anyone know what kind of camera he uses or how he gets his pictures to look the way they do?” Krug was on to something. He did something wildly intriguing, one that looked to have a secret formula.
