The Lomography camera that has the most number of lens that yields 9 times the fun and excitement in every click of the shutter. Its built-in flash makes it very compact and reliable to use especially in indoor events and activities. With its produce of identical images in one frame I say that POP 9 is best with portraits! Do you agree?
I got hold of my Pop 9 in 2008 with the use of my piggies. I wanted it to stand out even with its black color along with my other babies so I decided to experiment and sprayed paint on it. The result? Silver edition of Pop 9! (in addition to the black and gold being sold online) I’m happy that my efforts paid off. I was afraid that I’ll break it without even using it because its the first time I dismantled a camera.
As you can see this is the only camera in the multi-lenses section that doesn’t capture sequential shots that makes it unique (or perhaps dull for others as one image can now be edited with the use of photo-editing softwares). Still, having 9 frames in 1 analogue shot is something to be proud of. You just have to make use of its features. And to specifically and clearly show it…Faces of people around you are a great subject. It can make great POPtraits. If you’re done with people, you can try taking photos of objects shot at different angles and you’ll be surprise with the output. You can be imaginative and creative enough by covering some lens with black tape. Just like what I did.
It is called a pattern repeating pop-art because it works best for patterns that may produce 1 big wallpaper frame as if taken with a kaleidoscopic lens. This feature works best in doubles. I tried one collaboration where the first exposures were taken using a fisheye camera.
This handy-dandy camera is a good travel companion because it is best for both outdoors and indoors! No need to think twice if you’re shot will be underexposed every time there is a moment to capture! With an ordinary AA battery, the flash will definitely make the pictures bright. As the saying goes, “Once you pop, you cant stop!” Try it and pop your friends smiling faces now.
P.S.Just don’t rely too much with its viewfinder, you’ll get the perfect aim/ frame for each subject after your first roll has been developed. It must not be too close nor too far unless intentional. Also, make sure all of the lenses are kept clean by always using its cover otherwise, other frames will appear blurry or smoky. Goodluck!

Les Bleus may have been booted out of the World Cup by Germany, but for me France is always a winner. The number of places to go around Paris, especially, can never be exhausted: the Eiffel Tower, Sacré Cœur, the Seine, the Arc de Triomphe, and this time, I fell in love with the Cimetière du Père-Lachaise.

It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.
Some people say instant photos bring about a feeling of nostalgia. Although I often use the Lomo'Instant Camera with different crazy accessories such as the Splitzer and color gels, I have to agree there is something about it — dreamy vignettes maybe? — that always makes me want to go back in time and experience it all over again. In the name of analogue photography and good old memories, we passed by some classic spots in Vienna and took one shot after the other. Take a closer look at our gallery.
I bought the LomoKino years ago, and since then I've been having great times with it. I will continue documenting my daily life with the LomoKino, which is Lomography in motion! You can see the movements and facial expressions of people - it’s priceless! Documenting life in moving pictures, the Lomokino can be used as a camera that not only shoots moving pictures but also works like the multi-frame wonder camera, Supersampler!
The 2015 UEFA Champions League Final will be held at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin on June 6. It is a place full of history and is also the only football stadium with a blue track course. Some say it is the most beautiful stadium in the world, and I totally agree with them. But then agai,n I might be biased because it is the home court of my favorite team, Hertha BSC Berlin—my blue-white bloodline.
