Thanks so much for spinning by The Railway last month – we had some pigeon fun indeed!
Prizes were awarded for:
The best pigeon walk – you REALLY had to be there to believe that one.
The best pigeon outfit
The best alien outfit – just one attempt there from Ben (Duality) but a goody!
We had the famous Open Mic slot running with five minute sessions of brilliance from:
AdamScott – who presented in images rather than presence.
Some kids showed up and dressed up to the nines to have their pictures taken and added to the albums…
Check out the Lomography London-embassy home to see the Open Mic slot albums…All you folk who took some shots on the night – we have posted (I mean actually, you know like when the postman shows up at your house) them out to you so get uploading and send us your albums from the night (password ‘cottage’ to upload into the London-Embassy home space).
We will award a bag of goodies for the best album from the night uploaded by November 2nd.
Thanks again and have fun until the next time…
We will be doing something creative and amazing on Thursday November 13th at The Railway Pub again! If you want to help make panels of images that will become an exhibition on display at the ICA and The Ritzy Cinema then SAVETHISDATE!!!!
More details oft his and more will go up next week.
It's Tipstember! For this month, we will be awarding 25 fat piggies to every tipster article that gets published on the Lomography Magazine. You can share tips on composition, lighting, film experiments and camera modifications; or maybe techniques for shooting portraits, landscapes, still life and even wildlife! If you don't have tricks up your sleeve, however, you can still contribute to the Magazine and let your voice be heard. Here are some suggestions.
Looking for a reliable flash? Consider the Lomography Ringflash, which throws an even burst of light around your subject! We scoured the Magazine and found these community-written reviews for you to peruse.
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)
Toby Mason (aka fotobes) is a Brighton-based photographer who embraces the aesthetics of film photography. He mostly shoots with the LC-A+ using a range of slide films, cross processing them to create rich, highly saturated colours. His work has been featured on the BBC website and Hungry Eye Magazine. Join us for the opening night on Thursday, September 17 from 6 p.m.
Where do I begin talking about film cameras on the Lomography Magazine? Yes, you guessed right. I will begin with a LOMO, of course, a very special one: the Lubitel 166 Universal (Lubitel 166U). It’s a camera that has almost everything you might need from a camera. Plus, it’s a LOMO!

The New Petzval Lens 85 continues to captivate the hearts of many photographers from its debut a couple of years back. A perfect balance between form and function, this lens closely mimics the look of the legendary Petzval lens of the 19th century and delivers eye-catching images with its signature tack sharp center and swirly bokeh background. Many photographers from both outside and inside the Lomography community have raved about the New Petzval 85. In this recap, we look back at four community-written reviews.
