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.
Chris Pollard is a regular name on the Lomography circuit now. He has been testing out the Petzval Lens at various fashion locations for the past few months. Chris recently took the lens out on a day trip to the Tweed Run to capture a very British day out.
As a photographer, Issa Ng is known for his expertise in portraiture and fashion photography. Having worked with different international brands as an Art Director, he has developed a great sense for aesthetics and details, which are reflected in his work. For the past three years thePetzval lens has been part of his workflow, and it has helped him create those show-stopping fashion portraits.
April is going to be packed with cool workshops and events for Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day and Film Photography Day. We’ve also been working with Treehouse Hawaii on a film swap and Jones Soda on a photo contest, and we’re going to be showcasing the photos at an awesome event at the store!
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.
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)!
Done shooting and want your films to be processed? We can process your colour and black & white 35mm, 120 or 110 films! Development, prints and scans are also included. (Service availability depends on your markets)
As a wildlife cameraman and photographer, Ian Llewellyn has worked on a number of television projects. The UK-based lensman breaks free from the strict confines of his profession by engaging in monochrome photography. His personal work is a plethora of abstract and experimental imagery, created in a style distinctly his own. Llewellyn is an ardent user of a Leica Monochrom camera, on which he mounted the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Lens, producing the most imaginative, phantasmic results.
Although its existence has always been known among locals, it was only in 1913 when the rest of the world was introduced to the Inca site of Machu Picchu through an expedition headed by Yale University and professor Hiram Bingham.
