Grab your flashlight or crack open some glow sticks - it's light painting time!
Long exposures has always fascinated me with Lomography. There’s a sense of uncertainty in determining if you exposed correctly – is it overexposed, underxposed, or as Goldilocks would say, just right? When you add in some lights however, things get a little crazy! Wings are added, messages are written and colors explode in every way imaginable. You do agree, don’t you? Show us your best attempts at painting with light in the vast canvas of the night and you’ll get the chance to win some Piggies!

Ever since the Pixelstick came out, I've been dying to try it out. This past week, I finally got my chance! With one goal in mind — getting some super cool light-painting shots — I grabbed some friends for an amazing session with my Lomo'Instant and the Pixelstick. Take a moment and have a look at these priceless pics!
Ever since light painting was invented, it inspired artists from all around the globe to magical creations that capture hidden movements and reinvent the world we live in. "Life is a fairy tale, stay wild little child!" is what they want to tell us. Bringing light to life became the next challenge for anyone rigged with a film camera and a creative mind.
Now, how can you take your analogue light paintings from the ordinary to the outstanding? After the carriage came the car, so we definitely need some spacy inventions to follow the old school light pen. So here it is, our new best friend: The Pixelstick!
Have you ever dreamed of creating magical scenes with just the wave of your hand? Wish no longer — Pixelstick makes that dream a reality! Packed to the brim with 200 full color, high fidelity LEDs, the 1.8 meter long Pixelstick is your ticket to incredible, mind-boggling light paintings. It's now available for the first time in the Online Shop!
Light painting is such an intriguing and fascinating technique. Using your Lomo'Instant, you can actually use common household objects to create stunning and colorful light painted pictures while having lots of fun!
33 degrees! Summer has arrived! The heat wave, the sweat, it's time for you to change your clothes into summer season. Grab your tank tops and shorts out of the drawers. Put on your bikinis and let's go to the beach! As we can already feel those beach and poolside shots flooding the Community!
Pixelstick is exactly the must-get tool to create mind-blowing light paintings with different colours and patterns: 1.8 meter long, 200 full colour and high fidelity LEDs! Grab your camera with long exposure mode and a tripod, and you can create dozens of dreamy pictures just by moving your Pixelstick in the dark. Take a peep at our friends from Lomography Hong Kong’s shots with the Pixelstick!
The folks over at Lomography Hong Kong donned some Halloween costumes and took the Lomo'Instant for a spin, and produced some spectacular night and light-painted shots. The results are not too spooky but definitely filled with Halloween fun!
Perhaps you’ve already had chance to try light painting, multiple exposures and long exposures with your Lomo’Instant, but what can you experiment with next? Well, that’s exactly the thought I had which led to giving this Tipster a go. I wanted to shoot Lomo’Instant photos which felt a bit “messier” than what I’m usually used to and to use a technique which would open up new possibilities with the kinds of images I could create with my favorite instant camera. Well, here I go!
