Kaunas

First of all, I am living in this city at the moment, so there is no chance that you will not meet me if you're coming (smiling). Ok, the city is interesting - first of all, it is not so very tourist-like, but there are lots of things to see. Museums (even the Museum of Devils), theaters, cinemas, photo-shops (where a good film costs around 2 euros and the development of the film is only 80 cents) and of course the main streets.

Museums (even the Museum of Devils), theaters, cinemas, photo-shops (where a good film costs around 2 euros and the development of the film is only 80 cents) and of course the main streets.

There are two: the Freedom Avenue and the Vilnius St. These are the main streets if you wish to take nice shots – enter any crossroad, any road that crosses those two main streets and you will find what to shoot. Personally, I like the naked man statue (girls, did you hear that?), because it is situated in the very lines-design architecture background, so it is very interesting to use fisheye cameras. Anyway, if you come during the cold period, be aware, that the temperature goes even to the minus 30 C (my cameras are used to that, so no problem for me). Use slide films in summer, but please remember that you will have to take them home with you undeveloped – in Kaunas there are no developers for slide films, not to mention the cross-process which is like “oh my God, they killed Kenny!” for all the workers in the photo-shops. So please, come to the city, where two main rivers of Lithuania – Nemunas and Neris – meet together, and I will personally show you the castles, the mountains, the “not natural sea”, the damn ghettos of the WWII and lots of other interesting things. Friendly advice – the city is not very colorful, so please take your color-splashes with you too.

    Lomography x Zenit New Petzval Lens: Wandering Through The Big Apple

    There’s something about New York that attracts people, something that makes both visitors from the most bucolic places and tourists from the most cosmopolitan of cities fall in love. Countless movies and television programs have been filmed in New York, and so many songs have been written in reminiscence of the place. It’s not just the Empire State Building, Times Square or Broadway; there’s something special about the streets and the people who walk on them that make spectators stop, look, and listen.

    Off the Beaten Track: Portugal's Rough Vicentina Coast

    The Algarve region in the south of Portugal attracts tourists from all over Europe all year round. But what most people (luckily) don't know is that there is still a great unexplored part of the coast in Algarve, away from the masses and the cities. Come and see the Costa Vicentina, a diamond on Portugal's southwest coast.

    Pushing Boundaries: So I Heard You Like Multiple Exposures

    My name is Amber Valentine and I have a confession to make: I’m not really a photographer. I have a website full of photographs, a bookshelf full of cameras, film waiting to be developed, and a wall full of framed pictures I’ve taken. Even so, I don’t really consider myself a photographer per se. I think that Lomography is more about the experimentation and the fun of film than it is about the photography, and that experimentation is part of the reason I have embraced Lomography so.

    So here’s what we’ve been working on: an all new lomography.com

    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.

    Station Noir: Black and White Photography in the Summer

    Summer is full of color so using black and white film might not be the first thing that comes to mind. Yet the summer sun works out beautifully on black and white film. Like to give it a try? I've come across the best light at the train station during rush hour!

    Agfa Precisa CT 35mm: The Blues!

    I don't care if this film has been reviewed a zillion times, that it has already been discontinued, or that there might be a Japanese version of it. The Agfa CT Precisa that I know gives me the blues. Oh, yes - not a Chelsea FC fan, but this film is all about the color blue. Say hello to the blues!
