If you are like me, your favorite date spot usually has something to do with a place which is great for taking photos. On our first date I said to this boy of mine that he'll need to get used to my constant stopping for photos and that he did. We both like walking and love going adventuring in new places so walks in the park are ideal, especially when the weather is nice.
On our first date we went for a walk in Point Pleasant Park in Halifax, Nova Scotia. If there ever was a place for a first date with a prettier name I haven’t heard of it yet. I had been there once before a few years ago but in the middle of winter so on our walk at the beginning of spring, the first nice day of the year, it was a nice mild 6 degrees (if you’ve ever experienced Canadian winter you’ll understand that a mild 6 at the beginning of March is nice) and with my pale as pale can be skin I even somehow managed to get sunburnt. We walked to the Edge of the Earth, a piece of graffiti out on some rocks.
Since moving together out to the other London in Ontario we were very pleasantly surprised that our new apartment’s location has lots of green space around it, in spring we could see squirrels everyday playing in the trees outside and there is a big park with a river going through it, which is only about a 5-minute walk away.
Do you have a favorite date spot? Have you had any good adventures in parks lately?
In this article, I'll show you the usual route I take whenever I walk through the streets of Sham Shui Po, Hong Kong, this time in preparation for making a puppet called Mr. Golden. Sham Shui Po is famous for its stores selling fabrics and other clothing supplies, as well as electronic accessories. It is also full of different places to explore.
As the largest park in Union Country, New Jersey, The Watchung Reservation makes an ideal venue for hiking and outdoor photography. Visitors can look forward to a trailside, lake that freezes in winter, and a Science Center, among other natural attractions. With cameras and the new Petzval Lens in tow, the Lomography NYC lab team and I paid the park a visit, and this is what we found.
Say goodbye to October and hello to November. The weather is getting colder but we have a bunch of workshops that will keep you warm! We have a lot in store for us, from a walk in the park with the Petzval to creating light painting masterpieces.
I would like to tell you about the Zhuzhalka. Zhuzhalka is the slag waste that remains after coal mining. But in this story, in our case, we have another meaning for this word. Here, the Zhuzhalka is a Ukrainian group of young photographers. These photos are by artists from Donetsk city in eastern Ukraine. The name of the project was influenced by the geographic specialization of Donetsk.
Medium format and landscape photography might not often go hand in hand, but Erin Young proves that this combination does produce photos that are just as beautiful and breathtaking as the usual formats.
Common sense tells us that when the weather gets bitterly cold, it's best to stay inside and drink a cup of something warm. But when you have a primo lens like the Petzval, it's hard not to go on an adventure! Equipped with nerves of steel and a Petzval lens, these Lomographers around the globe bundled up and braved the conditions to capture the top 10 wintry (not so) hot spots.

Everybody loves a cup of tea to start the day. Meanwhile, we lomographers love to do little photo sessions to start our day. Both are really fun, but a wise person once said that we should try to combine two of our favorite things sometimes and see how it comes out. So, here we go!
What are your weekends like? Do you usually go on a date? Or perhaps you hang out with your family? Is playing video games on top of your weekend activities? I used to do those things. But it all changed since I met film photography. Find out more after the jump!
This is a tribute to Juergen Teller, a great fashion photographer who continues to work with analogue cameras. In the 1990s he radically changed the way to make fashion photography. His models appear "soap and water", without heavy make-up, and his images seem taken like an amateur photographer. Between his nice works, there is a photos that I like so much, taken in Cuba and called "The Girl with the Broken Nose." Take a look after the jump!
In December last year James Wright, editor and creative director of So It Goes Magazine, went on a two-week trip to Sri Lanka, "a place so long on our bucket list, but up until then, as yet unvisited," he writes on the first of his three-part photo diary. Herein is the first of his series that chronicles his adventures, highlighted by a selection of breathtaking images of the Sri Lankan countryside and the locals, among many other images, captured with his trusty photographic companions: the Leica MP, Lomo LC-A+, and an assortment of films including the LomoChrome Purple.
As the mother of all modern wide-angle lenses, the New Russar+ Lens shoots sharp wide-angle photos bursting with character. The solid yet compact ultra-wide 20mm lens can be used to photograph practically anything, and is compatible with a variety of film and digital cameras. Certainly this is a lens that delivers, but like anything, you can reap its full potential by choosing ideal subjects and shooting from a creative perspective.
