Zöe just had an amazing birthday this 2010 and you could really tell how successful it turned out and what a blast it was by taking a peek at her square shots!
A few months ago, our Lomo Amigo Christophe Dillinger had teamed up with us in pursuit of publishing Square Magazine's new book and asked everyone in the Lomographic community to show one’s year in square. A kind of a competition that calls for images strictly taken with the format we’re all familiar with – the square, each attached with stories of the photographers has to tell.
And to complete the list of our winners it’s finally Zoe’s turn, who is somewhat jumping like a happy kid with her new Lomo camera, let’s take a look:
It all began in May 2010 where I was given a Diana F+ camera and a roll of Fujifilm 400 for my 24th Birthday. My first pictures were taken in the Jephson Gardens, Leamington Spa where my boyfriend and I chased pigeons, got lucky with a piece of graffiti and knitted Stephen!
In June I went to a Monkey sanctuary where the best ‘ooh’ expression on a monkey was taken! On a boiling hot 28th June I travelled to Barry Island, where my boyfriend ate A LOT of ice cream. On the 1st of August I took myself and Diana F+ on a 4 hour train journey to Gateshead to see my best friend Marc, the angel of Gateshead ;-)
The last pictures I have taken this year are of my weekend in London, in September. I took Diana for a ride on the London Eye and learnt all about evolution at the Natural History Museum with Charles Darwin.
My year so far with Diana has been fantastic!
I only hope she can fit in my bag at the end of the year for when I go to Lapland!
The founder of The Pop-Up Pinhole Co., Kelly Angood, has been handcrafting pinhole cameras from scratch since 2010. After developing a huge online following from one of her early pinhole designs, she embarked on a mission to design an affordable, functional pinhole camera that could be constructed all in the comfort of your own home — and it had to look great too! Following an incredibly successful Kickstarter campaign, her mission was realized. Read on to see how it happened and what's next for Kelly and The Pop-Up Pinhole Company!
Lomography has previously shown you the kind of shots that one could take with the new Lomo LC-A 120. Now, with the first batch already shipped out and arriving to their lucky owners, it's the community's turn to show everyone what they've been shooting with this awesome camera!
If you run a small business selling hand made items online, you would know how vitally important it is to have amazing product shots to help sell your work. I tested out the new Petzval lens on some of my hand-printed items to see if I could get a winning shot, and below is an overview of what happened.
The story between the Spinner 360 and I goes way back to the year 2010, when Lomography decided to send me a beta model of the Spinner 360 to test. It was a complete surprise! I thought, "What the hell is that?" as I first took this camera out of the package. Then, when my little brother grabbed it from me and pulled the cord, it buzzed and turned 360°! We all had the same expression: "Whoa..."
“Mommy, no!” Angela squealed as she tried to push the camera away from her face. Thankfully, Anita managed to take the shot and hold the gadget tightly, keeping it from harm’s way. It was already the third time her daughter reacted in such an averse manner at having her photograph taken, and by now she’s gotten really curious.
Limited edition. Only 4,000 rolls available. What a way to tantalize the Lomographic community! But could a film billed as bringing back the "romantic experience of cinematic art" really live up to such a claim? Armed with just one roll of Lomography Cine200 Tungsten film, this skeptic had put it to the test.

It takes a highly imaginative mind to go out of the box and brilliantly recreate an already famous work into something else entirely. Check out these movies-turned-games by David Dutton and Henry Dutton of CineFix!
You can tell that someone had a fun and memorable road trip just by looking at his or her travel photos, and today's awesome album is a testament to that! If you're not yet planning for a summer road trip, you sure will be after flipping through the photos you'll find after the jump!
If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!
After our previous little chat with Samantha of FEElim Photography, we just couldn't wait to learn more about her pre-nuptial photography experience using our Petzval Art Lens, and were eager for some tips on how to use the lens for a prenup shoot. Read on for our interview with Samantha and of course, get hold on her amazing photography along with a few pre-wedding shots!
Ever since light painting was invented, it inspired artists from all around the globe to magical creations that capture hidden movements and reinvent the world we live in. "Life is a fairy tale, stay wild little child!" is what they want to tell us. Bringing light to life became the next challenge for anyone rigged with a film camera and a creative mind.
Now, how can you take your analogue light paintings from the ordinary to the outstanding? After the carriage came the car, so we definitely need some spacy inventions to follow the old school light pen. So here it is, our new best friend: The Pixelstick!
In April of this year I had the chance to test the Petzval Lens and to write a review on it for the German photography forum Kwerfeldein. The lens excited me from the very beginning, at the time it was introduced on Kickstarter. I was afraid that once I had tested the lens, I would want to have one of my own! Well, that’s what happened; a year later, I finally bought my very own Petzval lens.
