Ever wondered what your dad looked like when he was your age? We think he’d totally be in with today’s fashion trends.
The only moisturizer man hands need are 10W-30, condensation off a cold beer and other men’s blood. Your dad knew this and his fists were harder than hammers. His callouses had callouses and yet somehow his touch was still gentler than a rose pedal – just ask your mom.
Dads are the Original Hipsters is a blog that lives up to the name. The author Brad Getty compiles and publishes photos of dads all in their moustachioed, tight-pantsed glory days. The photos are like straight from 70s, 80s and 90s.
Poking fun at the hipster culture these days, Getty adds witty lines and hilarious puns to the photo descriptions. You always get a certain kick out of his posts and maybe identify your old man in more than one photo. Looking at the parade of thick-rimmed glasses, tight pants, jean cutoffs and furry facial man hair is just a laugh fest.
Cool and hip photos of fathers like these just make you kinda wonder what kind of life they had back then. Hint: apparently there’s a lot of drinking and badassery invovled. Here are some photos from the community that show off how cool dads are back in the day. They kind of make you think of dads in a different way.
Have you ever wondered what would happen when a Petzval is paired with a close up lens? Wonder no longer — a match made in heaven! We got up close and personal with the Petzval and think the results speak for themselves — but get in there and have a look for yourself!
What comes to mind when you think of Boston? Maybe it's the Red Sox, or maybe it's Baked Beans? With our newest competition to celebrate the release of the Lomo'Instant Boston Edition, we want to know what Boston means to you. Even if you've never been to Boston — no problem! We want to see your best shots that represent Boston to you!
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!
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!
The skies were busy with magic today — or maybe it was just the solar eclipse that caused all that ruckus? Decked out in space-age goggles and other various sun viewing paraphernalia, groups of people gathered as the moon moved between the sun and the earth this morning across Europe. Only a few lucky folks witnessed the total eclipse, and here at Vienna HQ, the greatest moment of the partial eclipse happened at 10:45 A.M. and lasted only a few minutes. We stopped everything we were doing to join the sky watchers crew and share in this astonishing moment. Check out these brilliant solar-inspired shots to celebrate the occasion!
It was our great pleasure to chat with the CEO of Ondu Pinhole Cameras, Elvis Halilović, about his interest in pinhole photography as well as the formation of his company that produces handcrafted pinhole cameras.

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!

For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.

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.
