Analogue Lifestyle

  • Inspired by a Music Video: On August 1, 1981, MTV was launched. More than three decades have passed and music videos have become a staple in pop culture ever since. These days, however, not only major music labels can produce music videos. Many have gone indie and produced music videos on their own.

What’s your favorite music video? Tell us about it and take pictures inspired by that favorite music video of yours. Better yet, make your own music video remake using the LomoKino.

  • My Day in Analogue: We’d like to take a peek into what a day in the life of our fellow lomographers is like, so we’re encouraging you to make an analogue photo diary. Using your analogue cameras and favorite films, document your daily routine, activities, hang-outs, haunts, friends, colleagues — anything that would show us a slice of your life — and write a little something about them.
  • Happenings on Film: Whether it’s a concert, exhibit, sports event or even the upcoming gay pride celebrations, share it with the rest of the community through pictures and let them know what’s happening on your side of the world.
  • Fresh from the Lab: We’re always curious about what our fellow lomographers have been up to. So, if you’ve got a new set of beautiful photos, fresh from the lab, that you’re itching to share with us, tell us about it in this new series!
  • Fun Under the Sun: Summer is still here! Well, if you’re somewhere in the Northern Hemisphere, that is. It’s time for that much needed fun under the sun, so we’re sure you’d be heading outdoors to enjoy the warm sunshine. Tell us, show us a slice of your summer with your stories and photos!

  • Reel Locations: Is there a place in your city or town that was used as a location for a movie or music video shoot? Start snapping at away and tell us about that reel-worthy spot.Oh, and don’t forget to mention what music video or motion picture was filmed there, too.
  • Summer Hot Spots: Summer is still happening in some parts of the world, and we want to let early sun-worshipers know how excited we all are to learn about where they spend warm summer days, sipping margaritas, riding the waves, or just decked out under the sun. Show us your favorite summer hot spots and tell us why they’re too hot to resist!
  • Lomography Day Trips: Over the past year, we’ve been sharing with you our itinerary recommendations for day trips around the world’s biggest cities. This year, it’s time for you to take charge and show us around your town or city! What are some of the must-visit spots that we should head straight into, if we only have a day to see the sights in your town? Tell us, show us, guide us!
