As a first time mum, I found that most (if not all my shots) are now of my daughter. I think all parents will agree that it’s hard not to want to capture every waking moment of their kids lives – the first tooth, first steps, first purée stained carpet.
Here is a picture perfect example of the calm before the storm and by storm, we mean breakfast time!
Having had the beautiful brass Petzval lens in the Lomography UK office has been such a treat and has now made my ever frequent trips down to the park on weekends even more picturesque. Look at the gorgeous bokeh swirls! It’s really taken the mundane to another level (though my daughter is anything but!).
The Petzval lens is on pre-order in our online shop and will be hitting the Lomography Gallery Stores soon. Sit tight!

Christopher Logan once again collaborated with Lomography as he brought his favorite Petzval Lens to the 2015 New York Fashion Week! The Petzval, being a versatile lens, is a great choice to work with during major events.

Our Lomographers love their Petzval and, as a result, they have taken it to the most amazing places: gardens full of green, immensely busy cities and breathtaking landscapes. Yet, sometimes, all you need is what you have right at home. Keeping family memories with the Petzval Lens never looked this good, and golfpunkgirl does it well.
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!
Juxtapose visions of Tokyo at night with the Petzval's bokeh, and you get pure magic. From a traditional Japanese hearth to busy Tokyo streets, Mance Thompson captured it all with the new Petzval lens and a star-shaped aperture plate, weaving magic into otherwise ordinary everyday scenes.
Brothers Howard and Guy Lawrence grew up playing and mixing electronic music in their garage.
