Inspired by our latest website feature - the MiniMovie - we bring you a new series in the Analogue Lifestyle section! Called the Midweek Movies, we will be introducing classic and fresh releases from the silverscreen every Wednesday!
For our first post, we’d like to tell you about Submarine – a coming of age movie based on a novel by Joe Dunthorne.
The movie tells the story of a socially-awkward fifteen-year-old boy named Oliver Tate. He’s faced with the usual teenage dilemmas – bullying, falling in-love and a troubled family life. His struggles to revive his parents’ disintegrating relationship, combat the taunting of his schoolmates and attempts to battle his frustrations in sex and love were presented in a charming, often uncomfortable montage of scenes populated with mixtapes, instant photos, handwritten notes and snippets from a Super 8 camera.
The film was produced by Ben Stiller and directed by music video director and Edinburgh Fringe comedy award winner Richard Ayoade.
We all know about 35mm and 120 film, right? And since Lomography re-introduced 110 film, we have another film format to play with. But in the years past, many more film formats were in use. Let me introduce you to a few golden oldies and tell you about my experiences with them. I'll start with Rapid film.
After a fully booked 2015, photographer Chloé Vollmer-Lo found time to test the Petzval 58 Bokeh Control Art Lens. She brought it to the Natural History Museum and the Paris business district, an endeavor that resulted in quite a few stunning, bokeh-rich images.
The latest addition to the Lomo’Instant family! Inspired by the Icelandic midnight sky, Get endless creativity, take multiple exposed instant snapshots, experiment with long exposure and light painting shots!
Ella Lama is a letterer and illustrator based in Manila, Philippines. Her work is a perfect mix of good cheer and unfeigned creativity. Recently, she designed a Lomo'Instant White camera with cute and playful illustrations inspired by her Japan trip.

Aside from photography, newcomer Dmitri Berenger enjoys a multitude of hobbies including gardening, watching movies, and discovering music. In this interview, he talks about his photographic style, his inspirations, choosing film cameras over digital gear, and many more.
London based photographer Cat Stevens uses the softer, more subtle aesthetics of film photography throughout her work. Her shoots consist of the familiar light leaks and washed out tones that most film shooters will be familiar with. She has photographed artists such as Deerhunter, PJ Harvey and recently took a series of sun drenched beach shots which adorned The Charlatans' last album cover titled "Modern Nature."
'Snapshot' was our Tumblr keyword this week. We spent the past few days looking at troves of fresh samples from all corners of the globe.
