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.
2015 was a super exciting year for the world of creative photography. We introduced new products, paid homage to analogue photography and collaborated with like-minded folks. If you missed any of the festivities, don't worry - we promise that there will be more fantastic things to come next year! In the meantime, here's a look back into all the happy Lomography memories!
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.
Cyanotypes are a fun and easy way to make prints on paper and textile. But perhaps the bright blue color of a cyanotype isn't really your thing? No problemo! With everyday things like coffee and tea you can turn your cyanotypes from bright blue to warm brown.
New York City - the ideal place to go to if you're looking for unstoppable energy. There's plenty of exciting things going on, but you need to be lightning-fast if you want to seize the moment. This is what makes the Lomo'Instant Wide the perfect camera to use - it captures all the details in one wide instant snapshot! See it in action with our special video after the jump.
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.
Shh! We've got a secret matter at hand, and it's coming at you at the speed of light!
We're being as mysterious as the Cosmos about our new out-of-this world product, constantly orbiting around our big reveal. But the eclipse will pass and soon the stars will align. Until then, there must be some questions floating around in the universe, right? Well, there's no need to look to the stars to find your answer! Stay on Lomography's wavelength as we kick into hyperdrive. Let your imagination skyrocket and see if you can decipher our otherworldly clues!
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!
Of course, Italy makes a great destination for taking photos. But what if there was a place where you could find stunning motifs, impressive colors, and the ideal mixture of nature and arts all at once? What if I told you that there is a place like that: a garden full of art in the middle of nowhere?
Did you catch the solar eclipse that happened recently? Word on the street is that it even resulted in a total eclipse in some areas of Europe, making it a pretty rare occasion for the folks that got to see it! We're guessing that some of you even had your cameras to catch the whole shebang on film — which is why we're throwing a competition for the best eclipse and sun inspired shots out there. Come on in and check out the details!
The spying globes on Teufelsberg are the not-so-secret insider tip for Berlin’s urban ruins and interesting freak show architecture. Even if you’re reluctant, one thing's for sure: the “Devil’s Mountain” is just plain awesome. The torn-up globe structures of the former military territory are just waiting to be conquered by lomographers… so what are you waiting for?
