How I met Lomography User Blog Rumble


We've been wondering... Just how exactly did you stumble into the world of Lomography? Its time that you wrote about your story and how exactly your analogue world came to be in the User Blog!

Photo by: juznobsrvr

When you meet a fellow Lomographer the very first time, one of the most common conversations you’ll have with them is how you discovered Lomography. Its always fun recounting old memories and sharing fond memories with kindred spirits. Wouldn’t you agree?

That’s why for this rumble, we want to read about your Lomographic origins! Did you chance upon Lomography from the Web, a friend, or that girl you’re eyeing? We want details! Put up your story in the User Blog and the popular one and three runner-ups win Piggies! Just make sure to leave a comment here with the link so that we can track it down. This rumble runs only for a week though, so better get started now! Good luck!

    I did my Exams und wanted to do some other things than learning. Surfing through the internet, suddenly and on a mysterious way, I found the "Diana F+ Deluxe Kit". A dream was born. After passing my exams, I got a very large present :)

  72. bmrawli

    I took darkroom photography in Highschool. Purely black and white. Our class had a large stash of Holgas and one week our assignment was to shoot one theme with one roll of Illford 120. Everyone hated not having control, not being able to visually focus the image, and not braketing the exposures. BUT I LOVED IT. Finally I didn't have to think (LOMO RULE: Don't Think Just Shoot) and I went out and shot my whole roll just hours after class. The next day I asked my teacher for some more 120 and I shot the whole week, until I reluctantly had to return the plastic beauty which I had fallen in love with. The day I returned the School holga I went on ebay and bought my first Lomo camera. That was 6 years ago and I have been adicted ever since.

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

    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 won't be reflected on 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.
