  • Analogue Album Art

    Analogue Album Art

    If you've been following the indie music scene for the past year or so, you will have probably noticed a trend of old-school, lo-fi photographs being used as album covers. This certainly is quite interesting and we'd be happy to hear what you think!

  • Who Needs Photoshop When You Have Philippe Halsman?

    Who Needs Photoshop When You Have Philippe Halsman?

    If any of your whippersnapper friends insist that you need Photoshop to make your photos look good, better school them on the impeccable work of portrait artist Philippe Halsman, who made one of our time's most memorable photos through sheer determination. And lots of pissed off cats.

  • My Analogue Life: Vintage Style Inspires

    My Analogue Life: Vintage Style Inspires

    We each draw inspiration from different sources. For some, it’s a gorgeous view or pretty sunset; for others, it’s the people around them that feed their creativity; and for others yet, it’s a mood thing. For me, more often than not, it’s an object or a piece of clothing that triggers the idea for a photograph — or sometimes an entire series — and that certain something is almost always vintage.

  • Suzi Livingstone: My Analogue Portraits

    Suzi Livingstone: My Analogue Portraits

    I read a quote somewhere recently that said something like, if you want your photos to look like they’re film shots, then get a film camera.

  • Analogue Love In Motion

    Analogue Love In Motion

    After seeing the article, "Lomo In Motion", by j-robert in Analogue Lifestyle, I decided to share two of my student films from....7 years ago! Join me in my nostalgia with these projects that kick started my love for Lomography and everything analogue.

  • My Analogue Life: Raiding the Archives

    My Analogue Life: Raiding the Archives

    It never ceases to astound me how much our eye changes. A photograph we may have considered one of our best three years ago may bring us close to a cringe today. Certain shots we may have thought were oh-so-original now seem cliché. But looking back through our previous work isn’t always embarrassing. In fact, a leisurely browse through your personal archives can often yield some surprising — and delightful — discoveries.

  • My Analogue Life: Best Before

    My Analogue Life: Best Before

    The only film I can find in my home that’s not expired or short-dated is a handful of Lomography brand 35mm and a few packs of Fuji Instax instant film. The rest — all 500-plus rolls of it — is old, sometimes damaged and definitely expired. Some of it has been kept frozen all along or at least refrigerated, while there are boxes full that contain film 10, 15 or 20 years old and it’s those rolls that are often my favourites.

  • My Analogue Life: Learning to Love the Limits

    My Analogue Life: Learning to Love the Limits

    I broke my arm. I fell in my living room on a Sunday morning. The culprit? Slippery socks on hardwood. The break isn’t too bad, and thankfully it’s my left arm and not my right. But broken bones or not, life goes on, and the work continues, albeit with some necessary modifications.

  • My Analogue Life: High Concept

    My Analogue Life: High Concept

    I am not so much a snapshot person. Sure, I take them: of friends having fun, of pretty landscapes and strange signs. But what I really like are concepts. I like big, unwieldy ones that I have to wrestle under control before a single frame can be shot, and I like small ones, six-shots-and-under deals in which everything I want to say can be communicated in a handful of images and shot over a single weekend.

  • A Perfect Band For A Perfect World

    A Perfect Band For A Perfect World

    That's right! Meet Faintly, the perfect band in a world of perfection. Or maybe not in the end. As lead singer Ian Ketterer asks, "Am I ruining my own career in music by writing this article?" Find out for yourself and learn to love the beauty in imperfections.

  • LomoPeople: Kris

    LomoPeople: Kris

    Next in line for our new LomoPeople series, we follow chrisdafox, who's been busy taking pictures and shooting portraits of his friends and chronicling their less than ordinary tales through the discerning eye of his analogue lens.

  • My Analogue Life: Get Masked - A Practical Guide

    My Analogue Life: Get Masked - A Practical Guide

    I get a lot of questions. People email me about cameras and film and how to achieve certain effects with their analogue cameras. But the question I get most isn’t about tips or tricks or technique, at least once a week, it’s: where do you get those masks?

  • James Dean: A Movie Icon With an Eye for Photography

    James Dean: A Movie Icon With an Eye for Photography

    We all know James Dean as the legendary actor who lived fast and died young. He was the subject of almost every photographer of his era. But aside from acting and racing, one of his passions was the medium of photography.

  • My Analogue Life: Please Don’t Fix It In Post

    My Analogue Life: Please Don’t Fix It In Post

    If we don’t talk about it, maybe it doesn’t really exist. But we all know it does, so perhaps it’s better to get it out in the open, to be grown-ups about it, to share. I’ll go first and admit to occasional cropping and removing annoying dust particles from scans. And I’ll tell you that my biggest pet-peeve is the term “digital cross-processing” because it’s such a blatant oxymoron. But I’ll also say that my life is so much easier thanks to the Adobe Creative Suite software.

  • My Analogue Life: My Favourite Mistake

    My Analogue Life: My Favourite Mistake

    Surprise and anticipation are two of the very best things about analogue photography. It’s exciting, fun, and a thousand things digital photography can’t possibly be. But sometimes the surprises aren’t so super, like when an alternative processing experiment goes horribly wrong, or the back comes off your camera and exposes the film inside. And then there’s that occasional roll of damaged film that’s too damaged and the negatives end up being a long strip of nothing at all.

  • My Analogue Life: Film Freak

    My Analogue Life: Film Freak

    I love film. I don’t just shoot it, I collect it, scavenge for it, hoard it. I’ve sacrificed half of my refrigerator and freezer for it and still, I can’t get enough. I am a film freak and I’m not afraid to say it. I know it’s obsessive and that I’m an addict.

  • Learning the Art of Letting Go

    Learning the Art of Letting Go

    Now, “don’t think, just shoot” has a deeper meaning for me: As I take each shot with my toy cameras, I simultaneously let go of worrying whether I got it right. As I press and let go of the shutter button, I let go of the fear of taking a crappy shot. Read how Lomography has taught me how to breathe easy.

  • My Analogue Life: The First Time

    My Analogue Life: The First Time

    I remember my first time. It was late spring, but summer had already set in. I was downtown, excited if not a bit nervous. I wanted to do it right even though I knew from other people that there was no real right or wrong way, that it’s a personal thing — everyone does it differently.

  • Change of Soul

    Change of Soul

    One Lomographer reminisces on her transition from digital to analogue photography and how it changed her view on the world. Join eurydice as she recounts her journey from the automatic world of digital, to the unpredictable tableau of analogue!
