Learn more about the newest analogue products, read about projects from the community and analogue enthusiasts the world over, watch videos and stay in the know.
Catering to community members and analogue enthusiasts alike who wish to discover what others are doing in the analogue world, as well as share the many ways in which they find analogue photography inspiring and meaningful. In short essays, real life stories, special interest pieces, projects as well as critiques, discussions and interviews, we examine analogue photography and the analogue approach to life.
The place to get first-hand knowledge from the people who know analogue photography tools and products the best. From cameras, films and accessories you can browse by brand, film type or accessory type to find product photos and sample galleries.
For everyone who can’t get enough experimentation, whether it’s quickie tricks to have fun with, tutorials, or some of the more daring camera modifications, you’ll be hooked on the limitless new things to try with analogue. You won’t find this kind of thing in the user manual! The Tipster section is also home of the Film Lab Rats section for those who like to burn, test, warp and do all other sorts of crazy things in and occasionally outside the darkroom.
Lomography has a dream and you’re at the heart and sole of making it happen! We are taking on the task of mapping this beautiful world of ours one analogue photo at a time. What better way to bring this global community together than sharing the hidden gems, landmarks, travel tips, happenings and personal stories about locations you’ve seen with your own eyes and want others to experience?
