Snail mail is among the traditions that hardly stood a chance against technology. But with snail mail that’s, well, smaller than a snail, it just might crawl back.
One of the many creative projects of Lea Redmond, The World’s Smallest Post Service turns your messages into incredibly minuscule letters, legible only under a magnifying glass.
The letter is then slipped inside the tiniest envelope, sealed with authentic red wax (with your initial!), and labeled with the tiniest stamp.
The novelty of it is just refreshing. And I thought only mobile phones and netbooks (which, incidentally, we read our electronic mail with) got smaller and smaller.
And speaking of e-mail, have you tried doing Photomails yet? Send the message as insterestingly – and without the wait – by turning your Lomographs into e-postcards! Read the Photomails instructions to get started.
A jump shot is like raising a toast, but with the body. Friends leap for hard-to-contain joy, daredevils for stimulus, athletes for triumph. And because the shot is jovial, its challenging aspects are overlooked. This post is a chance to study the exceptional timing of analog photographers from 1916 to 1960.
Perhaps you’ve already had chance to try light painting, multiple exposures and long exposures with your Lomo’Instant, but what can you experiment with next? Well, that’s exactly the thought I had which led to giving this Tipster a go. I wanted to shoot Lomo’Instant photos which felt a bit “messier” than what I’m usually used to and to use a technique which would open up new possibilities with the kinds of images I could create with my favorite instant camera. Well, here I go!
We love sharing photos! So, with the recent release of the beloved Lomo'Instant camera, we thought it would be a great idea to look at some of the best ways to share your instants with the world. Rather than letting them collect dust on a shelf or stay hidden away in a drawer somewhere, why not let everyone else in on your superb instant creations? Check out these 5 awesome ways you can do just that!
It's been a little while since we've shared the latest shots taken with the brand new LC-A 120 with you. But that just means we have a fantastic collection to show you today!

We recently had the great opportunity to interview our latest LomoAmigo, Tim Kerr. While his repertoire stretches back to the late 1970's and includes that of musician, artist, painter, photographer, skater and many other things, he just prefers Tim! We gave him a La Sardina DIY, which he not only added his own style to, but shot some excellent photos with as well. Rife with candid and thoughtful answers, we expect everyone will glean a nugget of wisdom and leave with a smile.
Done shooting and want your films to be processed? We can process your colour and black & white 35mm, 120 or 110 films! Development, prints and scans are also included. (Service availability depends on your markets)

Graphic designer Johann Bottos caught the community's attention with his striking black and white landscape photographs. Previsualization is central to his photographic style. Before clicking the shutter, he tends to "wait for a particular moment or weather condition" that fits the image he has in mind. In this interview, he shares more about his passion for shooting on film as well as some of his favorite landscape images.
With its surreal, psychedelic results that easily remind one of fairy tale-like wonderlands, the LomoChrome Purple has quickly grown to become one of the most popular emulsions in the community. We're giving you that extra push in the form of more community-penned reviews to finally try this film yourself, if you haven't.
