My Lomo story begins in Seattle and may never end! It all started with the curious, multi-lensed, plastic camera, the Supersampler ...
My introduction to Lomo was through a curious camera called the Supersampler. My friend had one and showed it to me by clicking the shutter button and shoving it into my face. Obviously I ducked, not knowing what he was doing. He explained that this camera was taking 4 consecutive shots of me and I only fully understood what he was talking about when he got the photos develop. I was amazed and knew that I wanted one, but had no idea where to look. 6 months later as I was surfing the web I found this camera and one of my favorite sites to this day – lomography.com.
The shots I have added to this post are some of my first ever Lomographs, I like to think that over time I have gotten much better at taking pictures. Since, buying my first Lomo camera I have expanded my collection greatly, and if you visit my lomohome you can easily see evidence of that.
I thank my friend (Chris) for introducing me to that curious camera that opened my mind to a whole new way of taking pictures.
I bought the LomoKino years ago, and since then I've been having great times with it. I will continue documenting my daily life with the LomoKino, which is Lomography in motion! You can see the movements and facial expressions of people - it’s priceless! Documenting life in moving pictures, the Lomokino can be used as a camera that not only shoots moving pictures but also works like the multi-frame wonder camera, Supersampler!
Read on dear friend and I will weave a story for you. There may be more questions than answers raised by this peculiar tale. But if it’s clarity you seek, have no fear, things will become clear in time (they always do, don’t they?). So rub the Sandman’s dust from your sleepy eyes and take a journey with me. If you think you have an answer when we reach the end, please do share it in the comments!
As you may have read in my previous article, I truly fell in love with Lomography when I combined my Fisheye camera with an old Canon AE-1 for magical photographic results. Last summer, I took so many pictures of flowers that it started to become almost boring for me. My waning interest and the coming winter meant that I had to figure out something else to do with my 35mm film.

Cuban culture inspired the new edition of Lomo’Instant. Like Havana’s color blocks, the new camera has an aquamarine shell. It also comes with Fisheye, Portrait and Close-Up lenses—all to celebrate the spectrum of delights in this summer locale.
Recently, I used my trusty Fuji Silvi. It may not be my all-time favorite camera, but I just wanted to use it because I kind of missed shooting with it. So I decided to look through my film stash to see what I could use with the Fuji Silvi. After much consideration, I ended up picking the old Agfa CT Precisa ISO 100 to get that classic blue tone. Silvia Precisa!
Curious as to how the Bokeh Control Ring spells all the difference between the Lomography New Petzval 58 Bokeh Control Art Lens and its predecessor, the New Petzval Lens 85? Watch Geoffrey Berliner, the Executive Director of the Penumbra Foundation and an avid collector of Petzval lenses, succinctly explain in this exclusive short video!
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.
Hello, fellow lomographers! To be honest, ever since I started working last year, I haven't been able to write a single analogue lifestyle piece. But today I decided to write something about my days, especially about my weekend in Bandung. It's not much but I take it as the start of a new beginning in writing all over again here. So, here's my weekend in Bandung!
Last year, schugger surprised fellow lomographer, turtle_cologne, with a Lomography Fisheye No. 2 during the latter's birthday. In the end, she was the one who got completely mesmerized by this wide-eyed wonder and started her own analogue journey!
