Experiments and everything unexpected are the bread and butter of Lomography. Just point, shoot and embrace the results with open arms. Here's the winners of the The Future is Analogue Rumble Pt. 1!
Lomography is unpredictable. You can never expect to see the same results even if you shoot the same subject twice. There’s so many unknown factors within each shot: the intricacies of the film you used, its storage conditions, heck even the integrity of the seals of your old analogue camera! There’s also mods we make ourselves such as multiple exposures, scribbles, boiling, freezing… There’s just so much to do! So for the The Future is Analogue Rumble Pt 1: The Return of the Experiment & Unexpected the challenge was to embrace the unexpected and here are the winners! Dogma brings home the bacon with 75 Piggies while the runners up get 35 apiece. Congrats!
Previously, Lomography hosted a rumble in conjunction with the release of the movie, "Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter." We then had the filmmakers pick the lucky winners for this competition, and here are the results!
This is my experience with the Lomography Redscale XR 50-200 (120), my first medium format film. It's an adventure that started when I got a Lubitel 2, to finally shoot with it. In this article, you'll find detailed information about color schemes, the advantages of shooting in medium format, and the differences between standard redscale films. Here are the results of a day of shooting outside, which I recently got back from the lab.
His work has been featured in countless magazines and art galleries worldwide and his personal style is distinct but easily recognizable: vivid, dramatic, colorful and eccentric. Lukasz Wierzbowski loves shooting in sunny late afternoons — when golden rays cover everything. His photographs, however, are the result of an amazingly keen eye, able to work wonders in all kinds of scenarios, sunny or otherwise.
Paul White is a South East London-based hip-hop producer with tons of energy and a penchant for film photography. He recently released his fifth album on the mighty R&S label. We decided to arm him with a Sprocket Rocket to shoot his adventures with. Read the full interview and see his images here.
Unfortunately, it happens sometimes that your resulting pictures are not what you expected - the image doesn't look that good, the colors are bland, and the subject is banal. Indeed, it couldn't be picture of the year! Herein I propose a second chance for your pictures by modifying your 35mm negatives. Just pick up some ideas from here, experiment, and scan your negatives with the Lomography Smartphone Scanner. Anything is possible: burning, scratching, putting on hydrochloric acid, balsamic vinegar, nail polish, bleach, or raspberry juice... use your imagination and write down your new film soup recipe! You can find a sample of the effects in this article.
Film Photography Day 2015 is nearly here and we’ve got loads of raucous parties planned around the world at our Lomography Gallery and Embassy Stores! Everything you can imagine and in the most analogue way possible — live unplugged music, vinyl DJs, in-store raffles, analogue flea markets, scavenger hunts, workshops, panels of photographers, instant photo-booths, competitions and loads more!
For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.
As Steve Jobs puts it, "creativity is just connecting things." It's all about tracing one's experiences and pushing the boundaries of what's already known to establish new things. The Lomography community is no stranger to these instances. In fact, the community is filled with brilliant minds who are always ready to refine existing techniques and look for innovative ways to express their visions and ideas. Here are just a few of the creative lomographers we've come to love over the years.
The Diana Mini is turning five years old this month! Through the years we have seen this sweet and petite 35mm camera transform from a classic analogue beauty to a blinged-out snapshooter and everything else in between. Remember the Love Letters edition? How about the Premier Cru? To refresh your memory here's a gallery of all the Diana Mini styles we've released in the past five years. Which among these limited edition Clones is your favorite?
