I have this one friend who had two Lomo cameras. Sad thing that one got broken and he didn’t make time to fix it. He’s back to shooting with just one camera, though he rarely gets to use it now.
Hearing about Lomography and its products was an awesome thing for me back then. All new to the subculture and everything in between. It just felt all foreign and so cool that I didn’t think I’d be in the middle of it all just a few years later. We had good times with my friend’s Diana camera (I think it’s an Edelweiss edition) on our trips and hangouts.
We have this particular photo that I’m very fond of: one snap from our swimming getaways. The weather is terribly punishing in the summer here in the country so we always saw to it that we got in for a dip. Of course, what better way to remember it than have our photos taken with the then new-found-love Lomo camera! We had drinks, rough housed all over the place and had more drinks. It was a blast. I just wish we shot more photographs.
I’m planning a trip somewhere this coming long weekend. I’m thinking of bringing a Lomo camera to get all the fun times on film. I’m just having a hard time with so many cameras to choose from. Not to mention the film! But, I guess it’s really a fun time even with the hard time choosing which camera to use. After all, it is Lomography. Fun is all that matters.
It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.
For Crow, his LC-Wide, which he fondly calls Elsie, is the perfect camera for his "Don't think, just shoot" attitude. He takes it wherever he goes and even uses the camera to teach his daughter about photography. In this interview, he shares more about his love for the LC-Wide plus some of the photographs taken by his young apprentice.
Did you catch the solar eclipse that happened recently? Word on the street is that it even resulted in a total eclipse in some areas of Europe, making it a pretty rare occasion for the folks that got to see it! We're guessing that some of you even had your cameras to catch the whole shebang on film — which is why we're throwing a competition for the best eclipse and sun inspired shots out there. Come on in and check out the details!
My friends and I teamed up with Photo Art Pro to spread analog love to the Zaporozhye community. Last month, we hosted a Yeti Scavenger Hunt and had a LomoKino camera as prize. We challenged participants to shoot a roll of film based on a checklist. It was tremendous fun!
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.
Lomographer Carina, or landei in the community, regards the Sprocket Rocket as a "versatile plastic camera."
