    First Impressions on the Lomo LC-A

    I attended a workshop organized by the Lomography Gallery Store in Santa Monica on 6 June, 2012. We used the Lomo LC-A with a "used" X-Pro film.

  • See the World Wide With LC-Wide

    See the World Wide With LC-Wide

    Always wanted to take group photos, landscaped, and big buildings, but you have to move very far back to capture the whole subject? Or sometimes, you still can't get the whole subject even if you did so by moving far back? Wouldn't it be cool if you can have a super wide angle camera to shoot with? Yes, La Sardina is wide but it is not really wide (not trying to judge La Sardina) enough sometimes. Thanks to Lomography, there is the Lomo LC-Wide!

    Fuji Velvia 50: The Film with Earth Colours

    Hello everyone! In this article, I am introducing a slide film which is uncommon for lomographers. It is Fuji Velvia 50, as stated from the name, it is an ISO 50 slide film. I think most of the lomographers will be thinking of reddish colours when they see the word Velvia. But not for Fuji Velvia 50. The colours you will get are extremely amazing!
