It was a beautiful day to take photos in NYC! Check out some of our shots from the LC-A+ workshop last Saturday afternoon.
An intimate group of lomographers flocked to the Gramercy store to learn the basics and advanced tricks and techniques of the Lomo Compact Automat aka the LC-A. The workshop began with a brief lesson on ISO (also known as ASA) the ISO or film speed is an integral part of photography and mastering the LCA camera. After discussing basic functions of the automatic exposure of the camera, we discussed using on and off camera flash with the LCA then talked about getting the most from the LCA with long exposures and double exposures. After discussing various techniques such as cross processing we hit the streets and braved the cold where the group put their newfound knowledge to the test!!
Each year our friends at Art Shack, a vibrant art store in Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada host a competition to submit photographs to their Lomo Expo. Photos must be shot on film, with a Lomography accessory, or created via alternative process. Check it out!
LomoAmigo Sophia Ragomo went behind-the-scenes with Nashville-based alternative rock band Halfnoise in New York City to show what a day in the life of the band is really like. From soundcheck to pre-show to performance, Sophia was there to capture all the action. Check out her photos here.
Autumn is our favourite season and it’s the perfect time to capture the last bursts of colour before the frost sets in. Join us for some exciting new workshops and events this month, and don’t forget to bring a scarf.
Analogue film maker Julian Hand took a trip to New York last year to shoot a series of music videos of folk musician Emma Tricca. He armed himself with a Super 8 camera, LC-A+ and some LomoChrome Purple film and set out into the bright city lights.
We've been fans of Brian Bruno, or @brunoroids work ever since he showed us some fantastic rolls of our favorite films like the LomoChrome Purple and Lomo F2. He uses all kinds of analog gear, and wanted to take the Neptune Convertible Art Lens System for a spin. Check it out!
As soon as they saw the Lomo'Instant Square, tattoo artist Michelle Santana and her manager Naomi Perkins, both based at Sacred Tattoo in New York City, had some really exciting ideas of how they might use it around the shop. Check out their ideas, insights, and photos!

Have you ever imagined what it feels like to shoot with a 100-year-old camera? In the past four months, I have been shooting hundreds of photos with a Contessa Nettel Tessco. I don't know when was the last time its previous owner shot pictures with it. Perhaps 20 to 30 years ago?
Photography has graduated from being a voice of truth to a storyteller. This Halloween, Lomoamigo Ruby June finds an old square bathroom in one silent afternoon. There reside two sisters unlikely in appearance yet equal in beauty, out to lure passersby along with their unresolved tragedies.
The time we spend with our beloved ones is truly precious, and moments we capture along the way always remind us of it. There are some particularly special days when we just want to take photos until there is no film left.
