Lomography’s not limited to creativity in terms of photographs. Exploring, crafting and documenting are some of the other fun ways to get those creative juices flowing. We’ve got the perfect recipe for that!
Your favorite Lomography camera
Some rolls of film
A handy notebook
A bag to put it all in
(optional) A Chapbook
1. Pick a place to explore. Or for more added excitement, wander around to a place you’ve never been to before.
2. Pack your analogue arsenal: cameras, films, accessories, and whatever else you need for your adventure such as a pen and a notebook.
3. Load the film into your camera and keep your eyes peeled for picture perfect shots. Shoot away at anything that catches your eye.
4. For thoughts and reflections on your trip, jot them down on your handy notebook. But don’t forget to leave some space for pasting your shots alongside your reflections.
5. Get those shots developed and stick them onto your notebook to create a mini-scrapbook about your adventure.
A new potentially photo-worthy spot to explore
Some time for yourself and your thoughts
A visually and mentally stimulating activity which you’ll never forget thanks to your scrapbook
Instead of going alone, try this out with a friend, a loved one or a pet so you’d have some inspiration while you’re out and about on your photowalk!
Today’s staff pick is someone whose service is extremely important to all the online shoppers out there. Thanks to his expertise, the Online Shop runs smoothly and is convenient for everyone who drops by to have a look. Let’s see what he has to say:
Name: Alexandre PIEL
LomoHome: I have one but empty :s Just used for testing
What you do at Lomography: I am working on the online shop. I am part of the development team and my goal is to upgrade the shop to the latest version, also to provide new functionalities and speed up the website.
Interests: In music, I spent a lot of time in concerts, festivals and parties. I also play and build didgeridoos.
In creativity, new concepts and design, I like building new objects like musical instruments, furniture and other stuff that’s a bit more strange…
Which Lomography product would you recommend to readers?
This camera is very easy to use and makes nice pictures, also for beginners like me. I like the functionality of multiple exposures and the colored flash.
Please attach a picture of yourself taken with a Lomography camera or Lomography film and tell us something about this picture.
It’s hard to find the good picture, so attach you a picture without sense, I am just playing with Sardina in my old kitchen :-)
To Lomographers, I would just say “continue to have lot of fun…”

Lastly, showcase your masterpiece by uploading it onto your LomoHome!

Your favorite camera
Rolls of expired film (seriously, because one ain’t enough!)
A group of friends
Food and drinks
1. Call all your friends and tell them you’re having a “portrait project”/party with free-flowing drinks at your place.
2. Set up your portrait studio near the front door. This way you can snap photos of everyone coming in.

4. Start playing some party music and wait for your friends to arrive.
5. Once they make their way to your door, snap away!
6. When the party is over, get all your films processed and invite your friends again to your “portrait exhibit”.
Tons of fun on an otherwise boring weekend afternoon
Addition of much-needed element of surprise in your life
Artistic release and experimentation
Get some costumes ready for more wacky photos
Pair expired film with camera accessories and try using different cameras!
Today’s staff pick is quite unique in that he and Lomography have a long and colorful history together. For this week, we’re featuring someone who has experienced the different types of work that keeps us running. Let’s see what he has to say:
Name: Aaron (You could pronounce it any way you want)
What you do at Lomography: I shifted through a lot of designations throughout my LSI stint – from graphic designer & copywriter to community manager to customer service representative to magazine editor to office manager (phew!). After all this, I finally settled down as Digital Agency Manager which allows me to do these cool things all at the same time!
Interests: I could go on and on with things that I’m inclined to! But to keep it short, I’m always open to trying anything once. I love to travel a lot, watch world cinema, cook, take snapshots, look at and do some design here and there. As of late, I’ve been really into certificate/degree collecting – a.k.a. formally studying amazing things like cooking, foreign language and some other geeky technical stuff that I’ve taken for granted while I was still in Uni.
Which Lomography product would you recommend to readers? Any camera from the Lomo LC-A line
Why? It’s the perfect camera for anyone who wants to get into the whole Lomography movement. Amazing vignettes, crisp photos and just a little bit of experimentation with it goes a long way! I have the original Russian version and the Lomo LC-A+ and try to shift things depending on my mood.
Please attach a picture of yourself taken with a Lomography camera or Lomography film and tell us something about this picture.
A set of pictures as it’s hard to pick just one! These are some photos from my journeys with various film cameras. I’ve been going places, meeting new people, trying out new food – all together with my Lomography cameras and film!
Your message to Lomographers:
Keep calm and Lomo on!
Thanks, Aaron! Lomography sure is lucky to have someone as versatile and well-rounded as you to keep things up and running. Check back next week for another installment of Staff Picks!

Q: The Lomo LC A+ I bought on your website does not produce any vignette effect (I tried with a Lomography ISO 400 film). Is it a default of my Lomo? Should I send it back?
There is nothing wrong with your camera! However, the vignette effect will be more visible in “low key” photos which you can achieve by setting the ISO higher than the film sensitivity actually is. You can also try out slide films and cross processing which often makes the effect stronger. Color filters (over the lens or the flash) or polarizing filters will also give that distinct Lomo feel to your photos!
But the best advice we can give you is to get out there and shoot shoot shoot! We guarantee that after a few rolls you will be an LC-A expert!
