The Lomo Caterpillar at Lomography HQ in Vienna: Caterpillar Characters

In anticipation of the Lomography World Photo Caterpillar that will be unleashed at Lomography Gallery Stores worldwide in two days, we created our own Lomo Caterpillar from our headquarter offices to a park that's close by. Check out some of the weird characters that stood in a long line after the jump!

We had a clingy furry companion during our caterpillar shoot.

A Lomo Caterpillar is simple enough. You need some people, the outdoors and some analogue cameras and films (though you can also pull it off with one camera.) All the people standing in line take a portrait of the person standing behind them. They then hand the camera to that person after taking their shot and that person repeats the process. After taking your shot, you move to the end of the line. This process can be continued until you have reached a certain destination or simply have run out of film. Any kind of props to use in the shots are sure going to add even more fun to the caterpillar. The resulting shots are then edited together to make a stop-motion animation.

Props make any Lomo caterpillar more fun!

To celebrate our new Analogue Day campaign, we would like to take the idea of the Lomo caterpillar global. So, on March 23rd, we will be creating a Photo Caterpillar at Lomography Gallery Stores worldwide. We’d love for you to come down to your local store and help make the video. Learn all about the World Photo Caterpillar here.

Here are some of the shots taken during yesterday’s Lomo caterpillar at the Lomography HQ in Vienna:
