I spent this year’s Carnival weekend in a little town called Calafell in Catalonia’s Golden Coast (Costa Daurada) with some friends, so I couldn’t resist take one of my Lomographic cameras with me!
My friends and I are really Carnival fans, and try every year a different nearby location to spend the weekend, dress up and have fun. In past years we’ve tried Sitges, Lloret de Mar or Vilanova i la Geltrú. This year, someone recommended Calafell, since it’s a small town with beach and a good Carnival atmosphere. In fact, there is night Carnival parade (rua), which starts in the neighbouring town of Segur de Calafell and ends in Calafell seafront. After the parade (quite long, by the way) you can party in many bars around the streets from the centre. And that’s exactly what we did, and Calafell didn’t disappoint us. Not so big as Sitges, but with a quite good and more relaxed atmosphere, you can actually move among the people and have space for you and your friends in any bar (not like Sitges).
Since my LC-A is broken, I took the Olympus Xa2 with a Lomography slide 200 film to cross process. This is our private parade in the apartment we rented before joining the official parade and the party. Can you guess who am I?
In case you haven’t guessed, I’m the red Power Ranger!!! Waiting for next year’s Carnival!!! (or any excuse to dress up in a costume).
A weekend without a lomowalk seems bad, at least for me. One Saturday morning, I decided to join my friends in their lomowalk. It was all cloudy at first but it didn't stop me from going out and walking. I brought my new Nikon FM2 and some expired rolls, just to test my camera. Was it just me being sleepy, or was my Nikon FM2 acting up? My photos turned out grainy, pale, and, in my opinion, looking so 1990s?
This is a story of me and Sardine, my first ever analogue camera. We've been traveling for thousands of miles and met a lot of friends. Even though I have better cameras, Sardine is the one camera that will always be in my heart! So once again, this is my story with Sardine
Hello, fellow lomographers! To be honest, ever since I started working last year, I haven't been able to write a single analogue lifestyle piece. But today I decided to write something about my days, especially about my weekend in Bandung. It's not much but I take it as the start of a new beginning in writing all over again here. So, here's my weekend in Bandung!
Exactly seven years ago, I bought this camera from Indonesia's local Lomography community. I remember having some savings in my bank account and just spending it all on this camera. At that time, I browsed the microsite for the Lomography Fisheye No.2 and immediately fell in love with it! Coincidentally, my friend who introduced me to Lomography just bought this same camera for his birthday. My life has changed ever since I had the Fisheye, my first lomographic camera.
About two years ago or so, I purchased the Lomography Redscale XR 50-200. I saved just one roll of this film and waited for the right moment to shoot with it. In April this year, I just wasn't able to take it anymore! I loaded this film into my Lubitel 166+, which I realized I hadn't used for maybe about six months. One idea came to mind: taking crazy multiple exposures!
When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand located at the Danish west coast with my brothers and my parents. However, I didn't anymore when I grew up. But in 2012, we hit the road again. It was my first visit there in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In this article, I'm going to present to you the photos I took with my Nikon F-501 SLR.
2014 has been a good year for me, photographically speaking. I finally realized a few projects I had been dying to try out for a long time and, despite my resolution not to buy new ones, acquired some new cameras.
If you want to spend a weekend near the sea but do not want to restrict yourself to the usual routine consisting of the hotel and the beach, I recommend taking a trip to Cesena and Cesenatico, two towns located on the Adriatic coast of central Italy. I did mine by combining sunbathing and cultural excursions.This was documented with my trusty Lomo LC-A. Have a look!

A lot happens in a day, made up of those little moments that we usually take for granted. So we asked some of our friends from the Lomography team to capture some instant photos throughout one day, using the Lomo'Instant Camera. The result? A collection of memories that they could catch, hold, and cherish forever. We compiled their instant moments into a cool video, which you can check out after the cut!
Every summer, my soul screams for a lazy, hot day back at my parents' home, for some good food, relaxation, and catching up with childhood friends. This year is no different, so I went back down to my small hometown in the very northeast of Belgium to enjoy a perfect laid back day doing nothing and everything. And of course, I brought my analogue cameras along to eternalize all of these small but grand moments in life.
The weather is finally warning up here in Chicago so let's take advantage of these beautiful days by taking pictures with some of our favorite Lomography cameras! We've got some really cool workshops lined up this month so grab a friend and come hang with us!
