The Lomography team has been working hard the past few months to bring you an awesome showcase for everything analogue in this year's Photokina! Everything's rocking so far and here's a few quick updates for those at home!
Lomography’s display in Photokina is nothing short of impressive. Featuring over 130,000 photos from the Lomography family, this massive testament to everything analogue is ready to wow camera enthusiasts for yet another year. Here’s a few quick notes on the happenings for the first day:
Members of the press and curious onlookers were taken aback in amazement with Lomography’s awesome display. The intrigued journalists and visitors were even apprehensive in stepping into our booth: “Are we really allowed to walk over these pictures?”
We’ve prepared 10 prophecies up in the sky and are ready to be given away to the thousands of Photokina visitors. You can get free posters and stickers!
The Lomography tower is open to be climbed so you can have an overview of the vast LomoWorld.
One thousand cameras are packed and ready to be given away! Try to drop by and visit to get a chance to win one!
The Analogue Arts Juror’s desk it at site, who has a map of Germany where the various LomoLocations can be pinpointed.
The Lounge area with brand new colorful beach chairs in the style of the 10 prophecies are waiting for the visitors from all over the globe.
And finally, the DJ has brand new turntables and the fridge is loaded with icecold vodka for your consumption.
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.
I backed the Kickstarter project for the Lomo’Instant earlier this year and was thrilled to receive it last week. I love how the camera naturally encourages you to experiment with its different features, whether it’s through flashing your multiple exposures with different colors or trying different creative techniques after your shots has been ejected. Here are a few tips from what I’ve discovered from playing with the camera so far (and a couple of tips I want to try out in future)!

Lomography Japan has been working with CAMPFIRE, one of the country's largest crowdfunding services. In the past year, we have launched three successful projects such as the campaigns for the Lomography Smartphone Scanner, Petzval Lens and the Lomo’Instant, and Campfire has been helping us reach out to our supporters in Japan. Koh, Campfire's Senior Project Manager, has been involved in all three. Also a lomographer,she is no stranger to our products and has even shot with the new Petzval Lens.
Hundreds of thousands of photographs have been shared in the community for the past twelve months and we cannot help but commend those that really stood out and captured everyone's attention. Let's take a look back at this great year through this selection of landscapes and portraits that make up the most popular photos of 2014.

Until a few years ago, using 110 cameras and film cartridges was a difficult thing because the only available films in the market had already been expired for several years. But now everything is easier thanks to Lomography; it has breathed new life into our small 110 cameras. Read on to discover the 110 film family.
Although having grown up in a time when film photography was the norm, working with instant pictures was something special for me. Today it is even more special, as this analogue form of photography has been my companion for almost twenty years.
Sometimes when taking pictures I get addressed by strangers either because of my cameras or because they don't want me to shoot something they claim they have responsibility for. But having the police on my back was a new experience.
