It was my first time to ride down a hill inside a giant ball. The experience was really an exhilarating one. We were laughing and shouting the whole time. At first, I got scared thinking I'll feel like a hamster inside but it was the complete opposite! This can be one of the wildest rides of your life! It is fun for all ages so better include this in your bucket list!
Zorbing sphereing, zorbing or globe-riding is the recreational practice of humans rolling downhill in a sphere, generally made of transparent plastic.
This is Boracay’s newest adventure in the island in addition to the usual water sports. From D’Mall it will only take you a 10-15 minute ride to the Zorb site in Yapak. The park is open everyday at 9am. It will cost you around P360-P580 or about $9-$13 per roll. It may be expensive for just a 40-second ride but for me it was definitely worth it.
Upon reaching the site, all riders are requested to sign a waiver and fill out forms that would include your weight and some medical history. We left our slippers and did a short climb uphill where the inflated ball is parked. It’s a 3-meter giant PVC ball where you can climb inside. It’s advisable to wear a swimsuit because the ball has little water in it.
There were two types of Zorb balls that we tried. One was the wet hydro where you or your friends are loose within the ball so water splashes as the ball rotates. During this ride you can either stand up, run or can opt to just lay back and slide. This ride can accommodate up to three people. The other one was the harnessed ride where max of 2 persons can be in it. Each is strapped into a padded harness so your body will rotate with the ball. This was the best ride for me, totally adrenaline pumping!
It looks like it’s time to get out the cameras and pack your bags.

If it's your first time to use the Fisheye Submarine Case (with your Fisheye One/Fisheye No.2 cameras) or the Krab Underwater Housing (with your LC-A+ or LC-Wide cameras), you might still feel a liiiiittle bit anxious about taking your favorite cameras underwater. To help ease your worries I gathered some of the most helpful tips, straight from summer-lovin' Lomographers who braved the waves with their cameras!
It's time to take your Fisheye One or Fisheye No.2 Camera out for a swim! But make sure that it's encased in its swimsuit - the Fisheye Submarine Case. This transparent case allows you to take photos 20m (65 ft) beneath the water surface! See the gallery below to see some cool photos taken by your fellow Lomographers!
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!
It's late October in Copenhagen and summer was well and truly behind us. With the nights drawing in, the chances of going out with one of my cameras was slim. All was not lost at this time of year, however, as it allowed me time to focus on my own personal music projects—I am a professional composer/musician and audio engineer at my own studio by day.
In April of this year I had the chance to test the Petzval Lens and to write a review on it for the German photography forum Kwerfeldein. The lens excited me from the very beginning, at the time it was introduced on Kickstarter. I was afraid that once I had tested the lens, I would want to have one of my own! Well, that’s what happened; a year later, I finally bought my very own Petzval lens.
My list of resolutions for 2015 consists of 12 projects, one for every month. March was for caffenol. You have probably heard of the amazing fact that you can develop black and white photos with coffee, sodium, and vitamin C. I had tried this before but with less than stellar results. Somehow, there's always something going wrong. Time to devote a few rolls to caffenol to finally get the hang of it.

There are things that artist Valeriie Liin can't leave the house without: her earphones, two notebooks, keys to her home in Taiwan, and a little color palette for painting. It's not always that she can paint, though, so for those times she turns to her cameras.
Lomography warmly invites everyone to join us on a trip to Rockaway Beach on Saturday, July 25. We will be conducting a couple of workshops to make sure you're well equipped onyour summer beach escapades.
Singapore, like Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong, is a likely stopover when you fly far. The city is a tiny urbanized hub but it's very favorable if you know some high-spirited locals. I was lucky to hook up with king kimbo (@hakimbo), who showed me around. He took my lame limbs to the Gardens by the Bay, an amazing place which was visually striking. I was hugging some artificial trees there when I found a baby—a very big baby.
