Stop by for a very interesting Blue Hour tonight! This week's theme will be "From Russia, With Love" and we will be celebrating Russia Day!
So what does Russia Day have to do with Lomography? Well a few years ago the governor of the Volga river region came up with a brilliant way to increase the low birth rate. Couples who wished to participate were given September 12th off from work in order to try to conceive a child. Those who then give birth on June12th (Russia Day) receive money, cars, refrigerators, and other prizes. Since then the region has increased its birth rate and is continuing this new tradition.
Here at Lomography we love the idea! So stop by our Russia Day themed Blue Hour and find out about a new competition inspired by the Russia Day babies and a few other surprises. Who knows maybe you’ll fall in love with another Lomographer and have your very own Lomo-baby!
On April 11, Lomography UK will be celebrating Film Photography Day in style. We will be running a Konstruktor workshop and our very first LC-A 120 workshop. We will also be launching a brand new exhibit by our community members. There will be prizes, cake, free drinks, and a camera piñata, too!
The time has come to launch our amazing new Lomography Art Lens - the Petzval lens. What better way to celebrate than by throwing a party on August 21 at the Lomography Gallery Store Soho? There will be live music from London-based folk singer Denai Moore, lots of bubbly and the chance to meet the lens face-to-face! Read on for full details.
The day has finally come! We are very excited to tell you that you can now order the Lomography New Petzval Lens for immediate delivery from the Online Shop or purchase it in your hands at Gallery Stores. To put full focus on our favorite portrait lens, soon we will be hosting special launch parties in our Gallery stores all over the globe! So do not miss an opportunity to become part of the sensational New Petzval Lens family today.
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!
Every week we will be selecting three Tumblr blogs with exciting, more often than not photography-related content.
For this week's selection, we have a little bit of everything: from double exposures and breathtaking scenery in film to a play-doh artist inspired by photography. Three very different blogs that are equally fascinating!
Last week we celebrated the arrival of the Lomo'Instant camera at the Lomography Soho Store with a huge launch party. We opened our doors late to showcase this exciting new compact instant camera! We gave you the chance to hold this beauty in your hands and have your photo taken in our instant photobooth. Read on to catch the event highlights.
Film Photography Day celebrations organized by Lomography Gallery Stores worldwide in April proved to be a huge success, thanks to everyone who joined in on the fun. Find out how film aficionados commemorated the much-anticipated day in our Gallery Stores in Hong Kong, Tokyo, London, Paris, and New York City through this photo gallery!
After a long wait, the Lomography Petzval lens has finally officially landed on our online shop and in our gallery stores. To celebrate and to get a glimpse of this legendary Petzval Lens, which was first conceived of in 1840 and reinvented by Lomography last year, we gathered media personalities and photography lovers at the Hong Kong Gallery Store for this very special evening.
Other than the exciting range of products, there’s more to see in the Lomography Embassy Store Vienna. There is also a new exhibit of works from various photographers around the world. A new exhibit by the artist Ona B., will be kicked off with an opening party on the 9th of December.
Recently, we’ve been digging through all our LC-A 120 negatives from when we first started testing the new camera. During this search, we had our very own finding Vivian Maier moment when we unearthed a bunch of photos shot by the super-talented dopic whilst he was on vacation in Japan last year. We totally love these shots and couldn’t resist sharing them with you!
