I recently bought a Lomography Ringflash with my piggies and though I have only processed one roll so far - it has become my top camera accessory.
I had lost interest recently in my Fisheye 2 camera and for months and months it sat on a shelf gathering dust. The main reason for this is that over the winter I have been reluctant to use it with the flash because of the way the position of the flash creates a dark spot in one corner as can be seen below.
I had started to use the Fisheye again but only when sunlight would allow (a common problem for photography in the UK!) and I still didn’t use it with a flash really. Then I saw some shots taken with the Lomography Ringflash on a Fisheye and decided I fancied a go myself. When I read in the Lomography online shop that it was also compatible with my Diana, Holga and LC-A, it was sold.
The only night I have had it out so far I was all alone, but did not let this stop me from having a go with all the various gel filters and I actually really enjoyed myself.
I am sooooooo happy with the results and I cannot wait to get the photos developed from where I have used it on my Holga and LC-A. It has reignited my passion for my Fisheye and I now do not want to put it down.
It is so easy to use and I found that the flash charges up pretty fast to say that there are 4 individual flashes to fire. I also think that for the price this is a really good buy, particularly if, like me, you enjoy taking pictures of people.
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.
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
When I was a kid, one of my greatest joys was to go to the park. I especially loved playgrounds. It didn't matter how may other children there were, as long as I could have my turn to go on the slide and and sit on the swing. These days, enjoying one's childhood has become so different. Technology has stolen the interest of children in more physically demanding yet fun activities.
Not long after Alex Timmermans purchased his first digital camera at the turn of the century, he quickly realized the trappings of digital photography couldn't fulfill his personal photographic desires. He then began searching for a more challenging process — one that wasn't so predictable. His journey eventually landed him back at the roots of analogue photography, specifically employing the wet plate collodion process using original Petzval lenses. This antique photographic process found in him a renewed inspiration and has since become his passion, which is evident in both his words and his images.
As you may have read in my previous article, I truly fell in love with Lomography when I combined my Fisheye camera with an old Canon AE-1 for magical photographic results. Last summer, I took so many pictures of flowers that it started to become almost boring for me. My waning interest and the coming winter meant that I had to figure out something else to do with my 35mm film.
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!

What exactly do I feel while waiting for my Lomo'Instant photos to be developed? I have to say I get a mix of "Surprise me, dear Lomo!" but also some "Did I capture it as I wanted?" kind of thought. No matter the school of thought, with the Splitzer you can add so many cool effects to your photos you'll definitely embrace it!
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.
Where are you headed to this summer? Where I'm from summer has ended too soon, so I'm still daydreaming of sand and seafoam. I decided to check out the archives for some cool beach-y snapshots and came across a lot of interesting underwater photos! Check out my finds after the jump; hopefully this list will inspire you to grab a Fisheye Sub or a Krab, along with your Fisheye cameras and LC-A+, for some underwater adventure.
It is always a pleasant experience collaborating with our old friends and LomoAmigos. This time, Emily Soto shot another wonderful series with her Petzval Art Lens. We can't wait to share it with everyone, so here they are!
