If you thought the Tirrenian sea was a whole deep blue thing, then mate, you’re wrong. There’s a single spot on the
boring regular coast where everything grows not only bananas but also coconuts. When you’re in Vada, near Livorno,
make sure you spend a couple of hours at Spiagge Bianche, which for you English-speakers should sound something
like “Spee-ah-je Bee-ahn-ke”.
Once there you’ll dip your toes into pure white sand while losing your sight towards
an incredible Mexico-style sky-blue sea. And every lad is windsurfing and every chick is sunbathing under rainbow
coloured umbrellas. You’ll be hell busy on every kind of lomoactivity on a very tiny moment, I do assure you.
For the sake of truth and history you’ll be surprised (or maybe disturbed) to find out that this celestial thing
is neither an unaccountable God’s blessing nor created by some crafty Hollywood scenery designers.
It’s the carbonated soda factory you can see on your left releasing its waste waters into the sea and painting
everything carbon-white. Howdy! My chemical beach alas! Fire some rolls on its plastic waters and sand and be
careful because everything is heavily polluted even if the local day-off people don’t seem to care at all.
Pure artificial marine nonsense. And a little bit of a shame as well.
Lomography has just launched the new Petzval 58 Bokeh Control lens campaign on Kickstarter. Luckily, I was able to try the prototype of the lens back in February. And if you're in New York City in February, there is one thing you can't miss: the Fashion Week.
Last week, I received the strangest thing through my letterbox. It was a postcard with this photograph on 1 side. The photo is of me sitting by the sea whilst I was on vacation last year. But I have literally no idea who took this shot – That’s why I came here, to ask for your help on my search for my mysterious photographer and to try and get to bottom of the riddle they wrote me. Please help me if you can!
Before moving to New York City, I was told that people keep to themselves. Thus, I set forth to put myself out there and create connections with the people in my community, using the Lomo'Instant as an icebreaker! I was proven wrong—if you show an ounce of kindness to anyone, they will overflow in return.
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.
Halloween is just a little over week away, and if you're on the lookout for a kickin' old-school costume for that party you're throwing (or attending, or if you simply want to dress up to mark the occasion!), you might want to consider these worn by merry Halloween revelers from the '70s.
Read on dear friend and I will weave a story for you. There may be more questions than answers raised by this peculiar tale. But if it’s clarity you seek, have no fear, things will become clear in time (they always do, don’t they?). So rub the Sandman’s dust from your sleepy eyes and take a journey with me. If you think you have an answer when we reach the end, please do share it in the comments!
The cold weather is steadily creeping in at Lomography HQ in Vienna. It filled us with nostalgic joy to discover a whole new selection of wonderful end-of-Summer photos taken with the LC-A 120 throughout the Austrian countryside by our colleague Dream. If you also have the early winter blues, this fantastic gallery should help soothe the pain!
We love our cameras. We especially love it when you love our cameras. And we get super pumped when you tell us about it. So when the LC-A 120 got a stunning review from the fellas at The Phoblographer, we were giddy with delight! Not only did they give it a killer, in-depth review, but they also bestowed it with a 5/5 rating and Editor's Choice award! Read on for a little taste of the review and then head to their site to read the whole thing!
You want your subject be the center of attention? Petzval lens photos are recognizable for sharpness and crispness in the centre, strong color saturation, wonderful swirly bokeh effect, artful vignettes and narrow depth of field that will make your subjects stand out!
“Let me tell you about my life turning blue”. Those were the first words the guy on the bench said as he sat down beside me whilst I was eating my lunch. Usually, I prefer to eat alone but there was something about this opening sentence which really intrigued me; so I told him “Sure buddy, go ahead. Tell me about your life in blue”.
Film Photography Day 2015 is fast approaching —do you have the film on hand to document the good times? We’re talking parties, dances, competitions, workshops, raffles, picnics and much, much more! If you don’t have film to last this gigantic 1 day festival of all things analogue, then now is the time to stock up! And even if you do, can you ever really have enough film? Nah, we don’t think so either.
