Nearby Quebec you can find several waterfalls, the most famous being the Montmorency falls. Despite not being as impressive, the Chaudière waterfalls are a beautiful place to visit and lomograph!
For the World Pinhole Day I decided to visit the Parc des Chutes de la Chaudière, a Park with some nice waterfalls. I wanted to try doing some infrared pinholes and waterfalls seemed a nice subject. Besides, despite being really close to Quebec city (10 minutes) I had never visited that place. So I packed 4 cameras (why bring only a pinhole camera when you can take 4!) films and a tripod and there I went.
These waterfalls are the last jump of the Chaudiere River before joining the Saint Lawrence River. They are 35 meters high and the park presents several lookout points to appreciate its beauty. There is also a great suspension bridge over the Chaudière River that gives a great panoramic view of the zone. The park is completed with some walk trails and picnic zones. You have access to the river after the waterfalls but swimming is forbidden…
The history of this spot goes back 8 thousand years, as it was a passage place for nomad tribes and several artifacts have been found in the zone. In the beginning of the 20th century a hydroelectric central was constructed, though in the 70s was damaged by a big flux of water and finally it was demolished. Nowadays a new small hydroelectric plant is present, the construction of which was polemical due to environmental concerns.
The access to the park and the parking if you go by car is free. You can also go by bike as some bike trials go through the park. The site opens from early May (when the good weather arrives to Quebec) until the end October (when winter approaches).
The Lomography Belair X 6-12 brought kleinerkaries closer not only to the most picturesque places in the world but to its beautiful people as well. A good conversation piece, it helped her discover hidden tourist spots and even restaurants that serve the best local food. Find out more about kleinerkaries and her Weapon of Choice after the jump!

As the iconic LC-A celebrates its 30th birthday this month, we think it's only timely that we look back to Lomography's roots and shine the spotlight on the camera's birthplace, Saint Petersburg. If you haven't been there yourself, or if you have and simply wanted to be reminded of the beauty of the place, we've compiled a few select lomographs taken using no less than the LC-A by our community members!
The Ting Tings are a musical duo from Manchester who have more pop hits than you can shake a stick at. They are most famous for their 2008 hit "That's Not My Name" which got even the stiffest of people shaking in their seats. The Ting Tings are back with a brand new album called Super Critical. They are big film fanatics (check out their website for proof) so we gave them a Sprocket Rocket Camera and a bunch of film to document their life in sunny IBIZA.
As all you lomographers will know, since its re-inception we have been following the tracks of the Petzval Lens. Indeed, this bokeh-genius has been traveling far and wide, falling into the hands of many a photographer the world over. We decided to put together this little catalog of talented artists and their most enticing photographs, shot using the Petzval lens, so we can show you what wonders and mischief we have brought upon us. Come take a look at the outcome of the Petzval’s transnational journey.
Unless you are well-traveled, there’s a pretty good chance that you are going to be shooting the same places over and over again. Here are some ways you can mix it up and make those same places fun when you shoot at them next.
When visiting Sevilla, there is a place that I think you shouldn't miss. It is not often mentioned in tourist guides, but I found it to be a highlight of the city: The Centro Andaluz de Arte Contemporáneo.
If you loved the Petzval Lens, we have Joseph Petzval to thank for. The mathematician/inventor/physicist was born in Hungary, but spent most of his life in Vienna. As a tribute, we visited some of the most significant places in his life, armed with our cameras and the New Lomography Petzval Art Lens. Watch the video below!
