  • Practical Questions over 'Lomographies'

    Practical Questions over 'Lomographies'

    I would like to discuss some of the practical questions I have been repeatedly asking myself, since I have started Lomography-ing. I might be very (some would say: too much) scientifically minded, but I often need to define a few rules, as I find myself a little lost in the absence of rules. I know: I am already in contradiction with Rule #10, "Don't worry about any rules". But if you are patient enough to continue reading, I would appreciate to know your opinion on these matters.

    Fact or Fiction: Digital is Cheaper than Film

    When I tell people I still shoot film they often ask ‘Isn’t that expensive?’ They assume that digital is cheaper because there is no subsequent cost of buying and developing film. But what people forget is the depreciation in the cost of their digital photographic equipment and the sheer quality of film.

    Analogue is in Vogue: The Rise of Film Photography

    Film photography has had quite a journey over the past decade. Only a few years ago people were hailing the death of film. "Digital is the future", people said. It certainly looked that way. But recently people are falling over themselves to replicate film photography. iPhone apps are mimicking lo-fi photography - Lomography is in vogue. I'm seeing more and more people with vintage and Lomography cameras slung over their shoulders in London's tourist hotspots.

    THE FUTURE IS DIGITAL? We don't think... The Great Analogue Photo Rumble - Participate Now

    An earthquake-like shock shook our headquarters this week. While evaluating the grand analogue survey feedback we had to swallow the fact that the majority of Lomographers believe that - the future is digital. The shock! The Horror! We were ready to throw everything out of the window; cancel Photokina, abandon camera production and start producing microchips for digital air-conditioning systems. But alas! Just seconds before our fingers touched the “Off” switch we discovered the very same sample of people actually believe that the most essential things in life remain analogue! Life, love, fun, sex, beauty, creativity were voted by a huge percentage to be definitively analogue.“
