  • The Artists Behind the Pillars

    The Artists Behind the Pillars
    You visited Lomography Gallery Store Singapore. You saw the quirky camera characters on the pillars at the walkway. They are dancing with joy, looking at you with a smile. You thought that is part of our design plan? It was actually a spontaneous artistic approach by our local budding illustrator Hanzhi and 1G!
  • Monument to the Great Fire of London

    Monument to the Great Fire of London
    The Monument to the Great Fire of London is otherwise known as The Monument. A 202ft tall stone column in the CIty of London close to London Bridge, it is definitely a sight not to be missed, although at times it is!
  • Life as a Lomosapien: The Sandwiching Effect

    Life as a Lomosapien: The Sandwiching Effect
    Lomography can sometimes be very unpredictable, especially if you use techniques like shooting from the hip. You can never really tell what your images are going to look like until you get them back from the lab. I often look through my newly developed photos and put aside particular shots that I am not quite happy with. I will then work on these shots, manipulate and experiment with them until I have created something that I love.
  • Life as a Lomosapien: A Burning Desire

    Life as a Lomosapien: A Burning Desire
    As a keen Lomographer I am constantly experimenting with different techniques to try and make my images more interesting and unique, one great way of adding that special something to a photograph is to manipulate your film to create certain effects.
  • Life as a Lomosapien: The First Rule

    Life as a Lomosapien: The First Rule
    There are 10 optional rules for Lomographers, the first of which is “Take your camera everywhere you go & whenever you go”. In my opinion, this is probably the hardest rule of the lot, as it isn’t always convenient to take your camera everywhere you go. But, I have learned from past experiences that this is definitely the most important rule, as you never know what you might miss if you don’t have your camera with you.
  • Life as a Lomosapien: Simulating a Sense of Movement

    Life as a Lomosapien: Simulating a Sense of Movement
    There are many things I love about photography, one of which has to be capturing movement within a photograph. The idea of creating movement in what is essentially a still picture is fascinating and I love to use it in my own work, especially in my long exposure shots.
  • Introducing Danny Wood: Life as a Lomosapien!

    Hello guys! We're here to introduce Analogue Lifestyle's newest columnist. He may be familiar to most of you but for the uninitiated, please meet Danny Wood!
  • Life as a Lomosapien: I am a Nightwalker

    Life as a Lomosapien: I am a Nightwalker
    When the sun sets I pack up my camera gear and head out to find something interesting to shoot. It is the eeriness of the night that attracts me, the vast empty landscapes, the people less streets and the traffic free roads in the early hours of the morning. When it’s dead quiet and all you can hear is the satisfying clunk of your shutter after you have taken a long exposure photograph, that’s when I’m in my element.
  • My Analogue Life: Taking Lomography to the Masses

    My Analogue Life: Taking Lomography to the Masses
    It happens with movies. It happens with fashion. It always happens with music. And now, it would seem, analogue photography is poised to take its place in mainstream popular culture. All of the indicators are there: the recent growth and expansion of the brand, the embrace of analogue among influential stylemakers and Hollywood hipsters, and the increased name recognition of cameras like the LC-A, Diana and Holga. (My Mum even pointed out a small item about a Holga as a holiday gift suggestion in a Canadian magazine that’s, well, rather Mumsy.)
  • 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.
  • 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: 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.

  • 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.
  • Independence Square, Kiev, Ukraine

    Independence Square, Kiev, Ukraine
    Situated at the northern end of Khreschatyk, Kiev’s Independence Square received global media attention in 2004 as the focal point of Ukraine’s Orange Revolution. Orange-clad demonstrators gathered in the Independence Square in Kiev during November, 2004. On some days, the number of protesters in the center of Kiev reached hundreds of thousands (one million by some estimates). Today, things have calmed down a little and the tented city that sprung up overnight has long gone. Independence Square, however, is still the city’s most popular spot for meetings, late night drinking and people watching.
