Sometimes, going back doesn’t always mean counter progressive. This is what Doctor Popular showed in his move to pursuing film as medium for his photography.
We all know that digital is sort of making quite an impact with the way we live our lives. Everything just seems digital and instant but there are just some things that are better off the analogue way. *Doc Pop* started his thing with photography by using an iPhone as his first camera but soon found out the joys of shooting analogue. We’re glad he stumbled upon his film camera on a yard sale. Sometimes it’s the treasures that find us
In his experiment *Glitch Double Exposures*, he used a film camera to shoot multiple exposure shots that combined digital and analogue into one unique set of photos. He purposely messed up some images on his computer by using a text editor and created glitches and used those for first exposures. After getting his first exposures on film, he then went to town for a photowalk and came back with gems.
The rewind feature on his analogue camera surely did its part. Out of curiosity, Doc Pop produced unique photos that are glitch in every which way, digital or analogue-wise. For this fun experiment, he used a Lomomography Color ISO 400 film and was very much contented with the results that he intends to do the same experiment with his LC-Wide. Now talk about a great kind of rewind.

There's nothing more satisfying than taking fantastic photos with a camera that you built yourself. If you've always wanted to impress your friends with your mad DIY skills, pick up a Konstruktor Camera Kit and show them what you've got! It's also a cool way to get them into Lomography, because as you build the camera you'll discover how analogue photography works. Oh, and the Konstruktor takes gorgeous photos, too - check out the gallery and see what we mean!

Aside from being an immensely talented lomographer, what makes him a perfect LomoGuru is his burning desire to share his knowledge. The city where he lives is full of people who are interested in analog photography, but the lack of easy access to film and equipment poses a challenge for them to pursue their passion. To keep them motivated, Hugo organizes workshops and tours on different film photography techniques and DIY tricks. Let's give a loud round of applause to Hugo Pereira, better known in the community as zulupt, our LomoGuru from Marinha Grande, Portugal!
With an expanded field of view and its ability to produce high quality images and capture minute detail, medium format photography has become the top choice of many photographers. Lomography is working hard to make sure that it keeps going with the continued production of medium format film and cameras. The current issue of German magazine FOTO HITS focuses on medium format photography. And with this rumble, we want to prove why medium format photography is king. Take your Diana F+, Holga 120, Lubitel 166+ or the new Lomo LC-A 120 and show us your best square shots!
His work has the anachronistic charm of hand-tinted photographs and the trippy flavor of rock. Sometimes too his portraits of Lana Del Rey, Kevin Parker and Jim James cross over to the territory of graphic design and pop art, skewing definitions of what a picture is. Neither are his views on photography straitlaced, as this exciting interview with Lomography proves.
Some people say instant photos bring about a feeling of nostalgia. Although I often use the Lomo'Instant Camera with different crazy accessories such as the Splitzer and color gels, I have to agree there is something about it — dreamy vignettes maybe? — that always makes me want to go back in time and experience it all over again. In the name of analogue photography and good old memories, we passed by some classic spots in Vienna and took one shot after the other. Take a closer look at our gallery.
While many of us can only dream of working with musicians and photographing them, Angela Izzo's job entails exactly that. Apparently, this is a fulfillment of her own dream that she had when she was younger. In this interview, Izzo talks about her beginnings which, of course, included going to as many shows and festivals as she possibly can; some of her most memorable on-the-job-experiences with the likes of The Doors, Lykke Li, Jack White, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and Chris Robinson Brotherhood; her inspirations and other interests; and her love for film photography and Diana Mini. And to those looking into fulfilling their own dreams of working in the same industry, Izzo also shares helpful advice based on her own experiences.
