If you have been enthusiastic enough to travel to Venice to visit St Petersburg, you should travel 30km to the Russian Versailles called Peterhof.
Peterhof Palace has a huge garden and a magnificent palace building. On hot summer days, the rush is especially huge but it’s worth it. In any case it’s best to spend a whole day there. Like almost everywhere in the tourist regions of Russia, you have to pay double the admission fee as a foreigner. However, students pay less than normal adults, so students, do not forget to bring your student card! The best of Peterhof (in my opinion) are the thousand fountains and the view of the Gulf of Finland, but the golden roofs of the palace buildings are also not to be missed! Amazing!
For the first time in the brief history of the Awesome Albums series, we put the spotlight on not one, not even two, but three impressive albums by a fellow lomographer! If you haven't been to Venice, Italy to see and experience their famed Carnival, we're sure the beautiful photos you'll find after the jump will make you think about what you've been missing!
As the iconic LC-A celebrates its 30th birthday this month, we think it's only timely that we look back to Lomography's roots and shine the spotlight on the camera's birthplace, Saint Petersburg. If you haven't been there yourself, or if you have and simply wanted to be reminded of the beauty of the place, we've compiled a few select lomographs taken using no less than the LC-A by our community members!
Stenoflex lets you reproduce the single steps of black and white photography, from taking photos to printing. It is a simple box pierced with a tiny pinhole to allow light to enter. Put a sheet of photosensitive paper (included) inside the darkroom and expose it to your subject.
This is a tutorial for the adventurous Lomographers, for those brave enough to do their own B&W and C-41 work but lacking the confidence to move onto E6. Fear no more! I am an enthusiastic home developer, just like the rest of you, I am not a chemical lab wizard! So if I can pull this off, so can the rest of you. Take a deep breath, relax, and read on. By the end of this article I hope you'll have mustered the courage to give it a go yourselves!
As camera-toting, wanderlust-driven adventurers, we are always seeking for the most intriguing places to visit and immortalize in our travel snaps. One such spot, without a doubt, is the historic city of Cusco in Peru.

Have you all watched "Eat, Pray, Love"? I was inspired by Julia Roberts, who rode a bicycle in that movie, so I decided to rent one and try it myself! This happened two years ago but I still remember my biking route. To all of you who haven't been to Ubud, I think you should visit the place and try to go around in a bicycle!

Music is evocative in itself. To further enjoy the magic a musical experience, we are honoured to introduce La Flamme’s videoclip for the titular single of its album, ‘La Magia está en ti’ (The Magic is inside of you). It’s a collection of images that not only works as a promotional piece, but also as a guide to one's emotions. And if that wasn't remarkable enough, some of the images have been filmed with our very own LomoKino!
