Enjoying Nightlife, the Lomography Way!

It's been around 6 months since my wife and I found out about Lomography and just as you should expect, it was love at first sight. We've decided to live the analogue life for real and leave our digital camera at home everytime we go out. For each party, night club and event, we pack a lomographic camera and so, every single photo becomes very special! Read on and find out why.

Do you want to score some points with your girl? Are you taking her out on a romantic dinner at a Japanese restaurant? Then, take your Fisheye 2 with you! With its multiple exposure feature, you don’t even need to ask anybody to take your pictures!

What about when you feel like going to a rock party? No problem, just grab your Fisheye 2 again and party like crazy! Seriously, make good use of the multiple and/or long exposure functions and all those crazy lights will add some amazing effects to your pictures!

Oh, and don’t worry if you only have Lomography Color Negative 400 film. All pictures above were shot with that film. Using either flash or long exposures, it’s possible to take really cool pictures!

What if you’re invited to a costume party? Then, it’s time to draw out your ColorSplash and put your best costume on! In times like these, it’s good to be fast on the camera shutter so you can shoot Presto (from Dungeons & Dragons TV series) dancing low on the floor. What if late at night you catch Batman wearing Pikachu’s head? Yes, you can even shoot him doing some crazy one-handed pushup on the floor!

It always seems like there’s a wild party going on somewhere, right? And that’s why you must always have your camera around, in case you are lucky to be in one of these places, at the right time. That’s what happened to us: the day before the costume party, we went to a pop party. We were dancing, having fun, until, out of nowhere, Pikachu shows up. What a special guest, huh?

Well, of course the Pikachu guy is a friend of ours, but we could never imagine he would be brave enough to show up dressed up like that!

All the above pictures were shot with a Lomography Color Negative 800 film, so you can tell that the results are better, even though a bit grainy.

Going to so many parties, shooting so many things, we realized that the best party camera is actually the ColorSplash. To us, it’s like it was created to enjoy the nightlife. The colored flashes give a special fun touch to the party and besides, it’s really easy-to-use. Let’s face it, when you’re on the dance floor, an easy-to-use camera is really important because you can let all your friends play with it and take really cool shots.

Well, that’s it… Just follow the Golden Rules of Lomography, especially the first one, and you’ll be happy to have captured the best moments of the night!

What about you? Do you also take your camera to the dance floor?

Fisheye No. 2 has a 170-degree wide angle view and stunning barrel distortion. Now with a hotshoe and multiple and long exposure capabilities, the world’s greatest compact Fisheye camera is now more amazing than you ever thought possible! Available in different colours and special designs.

    Storytelling with Petzvals: Alex Timmermans and the Art of Collodion

    Not long after Alex Timmermans purchased his first digital camera at the turn of the century, he quickly realized the trappings of digital photography couldn't fulfill his personal photographic desires. He then began searching for a more challenging process — one that wasn't so predictable. His journey eventually landed him back at the roots of analogue photography, specifically employing the wet plate collodion process using original Petzval lenses. This antique photographic process found in him a renewed inspiration and has since become his passion, which is evident in both his words and his images.

    Fresh from the Lab: 1990

    A weekend without a lomowalk seems bad, at least for me. One Saturday morning, I decided to join my friends in their lomowalk. It was all cloudy at first but it didn't stop me from going out and walking. I brought my new Nikon FM2 and some expired rolls, just to test my camera. Was it just me being sleepy, or was my Nikon FM2 acting up? My photos turned out grainy, pale, and, in my opinion, looking so 1990s?

    The World According to Herr Willie: Gardens by the Bay, Singapore

    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.
