Have you ever been approached by a total stranger with a perplexed look on his face on what kind of camera you're using? We've all experienced this dozens of times but in Japan, the Tokyo Camera Style project takes this one big step in the right direction!
While fashionistas have the Sartorialist where Scott Schuman scours New York for the hippest getups and eye catching ensembles, Japan has a different beat in tune with our analogue tastes. Tokyo Camera Style is a visual chronicle of the thriving analogue movement in Japan. From plastic cameras to rangefinders and bulky SLRs, they’ve got every conceivable film camera out there! If you’re in the market for new/old cameras, browse through a couple of pages first and who knows, you might see your camera soul mate! We’ve attached some of the photos here to make you guys drool. So should we do a similar project? Hmmm…
Recently, we’ve been digging through all our LC-A 120 negatives from when we first started testing the new camera. During this search, we had our very own finding Vivian Maier moment when we unearthed a bunch of photos shot by the super-talented dopic whilst he was on vacation in Japan last year. We totally love these shots and couldn’t resist sharing them with you!
Since Lomography launched its new Petzval 58 Bokeh Control Art Lens project on Kickstarter, we've been seeing a variety of pictures, from images of snow monkeys in Japan to behind-the-scenes shots of New York Fashion Week. Many of these pictures were shot with digital cameras, but we've yet to see how the Petzval 58 performs on an analog Canon Rebel camera loaded with black and white, and x-pro film. Join us on a trip through the heart of New York's Chinatown during the Lunar New Year Parade.
Their awe-inspiring lomographs and active LomoHomes are like fuel to our burning passion for film photography, encouraging us to keep on shooting and improving our work. Say your biggest congratulations to our most popular lomographers of August 2015:
Today is Pola-Day - the international day of instant photography! And what could be more appropriate than a competition to honor this special day? Grab your favorite instant camera and join the celebration.
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!
Did you miss watching analog movies crafted by our fellow lomographers? Fret not because in this recap, we rounded up the LomoKino movies that caught the community's attention last month. So, grab your bowl of popcorn and refill those soda glasses. The movie marathon is about to start!
