Once again, we ravaged the world wide web for more Lomography-inspired outfits and found a number of life-sized / real-life mannequins on Lookbook.nu!
Many of you liked the Polyvore collages and sets that we featured in last week’s Wear Your Camera Everywhere You Go lifestyle piece — and, apparently, whenever and wherever we bring our playful-looking film cameras, they surely define who we are and what we like to do.
Whether it’s spring or summertime, we, Lomographers, must always have our cameras with us. We must use our analogue ammunition day and night. Just like clothes which we like to wear comfortably, our cameras should also, more or less, suit our interests, lifestyle, and personality.
One of our community users, daforl, suggested Lookbook, another fashion-inclined website which showcases various getups of people from around the globe. Below are some of the most stylish Lomography-inspired sets we’ve scoured on Lookbook — feel free to add and link yours as a comment:
Once again we rely on good ol' history for that much-needed dose of inspiration to start the week with. This time, amazing circus girls take the spotlight through photographs by an equally talented female photographer, Nina Leen.
For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.
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.
It's that time of the year once again, when we unleash a bin of goodies for free! With Retail Therapy, the more you shop, the more freebies you get, so start filling up your shopping carts. This offer is ongoing until 28th September in the Lomography Online Shop.
Did you have a blast celebrating all things analog last Film Photography Day? We highly suggest bringing out more bottles of champagne and tossing the confetti once more. The party is just starting for our winners!
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!
Christopher Logan once again collaborated with Lomography as he brought his favorite Petzval Lens to the 2015 New York Fashion Week! The Petzval, being a versatile lens, is a great choice to work with during major events. Logan documented most of the Fashion Week with Lomography gear, and we are more than excited to share with you some of his shots with the Petzval Lens!
As the world grieves the death of prolific actor and comedian Robin Williams, photographer Daniel Sorine reveals a number of photographs taken in 1974, showing a pair of mimes hamming it up for the camera. One of them was Williams - only, Sorine was only able to realize this fact more than three decades later.
Did you miss this year's Film Photography Day celebration? Here's a recap of all the events that happened in April, in honor of our love for analogue photography. Of course, remember that you can always make any day a Film Photography Day if you wish; just gather your friends and organize a LomoMatrix in your area! For inspiration, check out what Lomography Gallery Stores and Lomography Embassy Stores from all over the world came up with.
