Climb aboard the Lomography Love Boat at Selfridges this August and enjoy a super cool analogue photography experience for a very limited time only!
Lomography has taken its inspiration for this wonderful Pop Up Store at Selfridges from the waterythemed, brand-new, La Sardina Cameras and have built, well, a lovely ‘Love Boat’ in honor of this salty sea-water reference. Then, quite frankly, we’ve got TOTALLY carried away.
You won’t believe how much fun you can have playing ship shape sailors in this beautiful analogue world!
What’s on offer in store?
First Mate Workshops
Come in store and borrow a Lomography camera and a roll of film for one hour, all for the measly price of one pound – what a perfect lunch hour pastime! Better than sipping rum in a storm at sea and all you need is a credit card to leave as a deposit. Shiver me timbers that’s a deal! Sailor Tattoos
You’re not a real sailor unless you’re sporting a salty-dog-style tattoo. Fact. So come along and get a freebie (temporary…boo!) tattoo of a random nautical reference and impress your land lubber friends. Tug O’War
Find your sea legs and take on one of the sailors in store to a tug o‘ war match. Prizes and discounts for the winners! Ship’s Bell Discounts
Each day we will be looking for a different sailing reference. If you happen to stumble aboard sporting any of these strange and unusual daily visual challenges then the bell will ring and the lucky land lubbers will be rewarded with some discount or prizes!

He talks about his experience and shares the sights from his journey in this Lomography Magazine exclusive.

Light Painting is a cool technique that we love to do when we're in the mood for experimenting with photos. It's super easy and fun, and it only requires a dark room, a friend or two to collaborate with, a camera with long exposure mode and a light painting tool to get started. Check out 50 of the most vibrant light painting photos taken by your fellow Lomographers after the cut!
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!

Take a moment and have a look at these priceless pics!

An Argentinean writer and photographer living in the Pacific Northwest, Lorraine Healy is a long-time fan of plastic cameras and is the author of "Tricks With A Plastic Wonder," a manual for achieving better results with a Holga camera, available in eBook form at Amazon.com. In this article, Healy explains how she fell hard in love with the Lomography XPro Slide 200 film and why she takes it on her many travels.
This year marks the 70th anniversary of the publication of one of the most influential photography books ever, "Ballet" by the photographer, art director, and graphic designer Alexey Brodovitch. Brodovitch took a series of photos of classical dance in a very unconventional way, using very slow exposure times, trying to catch the true essence of Russian ballets. For this article, I took a series of photos at the Swing Crash Festival in my city, Como, held in June 2015.
One Christmas, David Townsend was given the Konstruktor by his wife. It sparked an idea in his head, taking inspiration from Jack Lowe's Lifeboat Station project and his love for photography. He built and beautifully customised the Konstruktor and has just embarked on his own long term analogue project, because a camera is for life, not just for Christmas. Learn more about his project in this interview.
While many of us can only dream of working with musicians and photographing them, Angela Izzo's job entails exactly that. Apparently, this is a fulfillment of her own dream that she had when she was younger. In this interview, Izzo talks about her beginnings which, of course, included going to as many shows and festivals as she possibly can; some of her most memorable on-the-job-experiences with the likes of The Doors, Lykke Li, Jack White, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and Chris Robinson Brotherhood; her inspirations and other interests; and her love for film photography and Diana Mini. And to those looking into fulfilling their own dreams of working in the same industry, Izzo also shares helpful advice based on her own experiences.
