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! All times and date of in store events will be listed in store

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!

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.
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.
