To go out and make good memories is one of the many goals one has to do when the summer season starts and Lomography will make it more special for everyone who pushes the shutter button!
Arguably the most favourable season for any photographic opportunities could be the month of June. As you don’t have to worry about any insufficiency when it comes to taking photographs as the sun will never leave you in the dark and more possibly will get you burnt and overexposed (i.e., lightleaks and such happy accidents!) so wearing a sunscreen is an optional matter.
But blackcoffeeandtantrum had a much better idea on dodging off the heat of the sun and that is by diving headfirst into the pool, it might hurt at first, but once you get the hang of things and made yourself comfortable, then it would just be the best time for Lomo LC-A+ w/ Krab to join you in the water as well!
So what else do the other megalomomaniacs had been up to during the good month of June? Let’s then take a look back at those fantastic snaps that made us “like-ing” for more!
There are quite a lot of festivals to choose from every summer and for sure everyone has his favorite.

Durham is a beautiful but tiny university city in the north of England famous for its amazing cathedral, which is one of Britain's best loved buildings. When I was studying at the university, I loved to go for crisp, autumnal walks around the cathedral and the river, kicking the leaves and basking in the golden glow of the season. The Lomography Redscale film perfectly captures the beauty of this time of year.
Aside from the Magazine, going through the User Blogs is another way to keep tabs on the latest happening in the community. Throughout the year, it was filled with articles on new discoveries, thought-provoking opinions, and exciting exhibits that surely entertained, challenged, and inspired everyone. Let's take a look back at the fruitful year through the most popular user blogs of 2014.
Some people say instant photos bring about a feeling of nostalgia. Although I often use the Lomo'Instant Camera with different crazy accessories such as the Splitzer and color gels, I have to agree there is something about it — dreamy vignettes maybe? — that always makes me want to go back in time and experience it all over again. In the name of analogue photography and good old memories, we passed by some classic spots in Vienna and took one shot after the other. Take a closer look at our gallery.
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!
As Steve Jobs puts it, "creativity is just connecting things." It's all about tracing one's experiences and pushing the boundaries of what's already known to establish new things. The Lomography community is no stranger to these instances. In fact, the community is filled with brilliant minds who are always ready to refine existing techniques and look for innovative ways to express their visions and ideas. Here are just a few of the creative lomographers we've come to love over the years.
