We’re halfway into the LC-A’s anniversary year! Here’s an update on the daily dose of Lomogaphy you’ve been sharing with us!
We all love our LC-A. We feed it only the best films available, we take it everywhere we go and we tuck it in beside us when we sleep. It’s only right then that we pay special homage to our lovely friend on its 25th birthday! Its been a great year so far for our trusty Russian friend with fabulous parties exquisite flipbooks and even pretty postcards!
Half a year has passed already since we last asked about you uploading your lcadiary. Rest assured we haven’t forgotten about it! We’re anxiously awaiting each upload everyday as we count down to judging day for the best of the best! For now, here are some choice photos from our top uploaders! Don’t forget to check out their LC-A diary entries in the links and see what our contestants have been doing day by day!
Haven’t started yet? Not to worry! You can still join in as there’s 6 months more remaining in the contest. All you need to do is to tag images dedicated to that competition with “lcadiary” and don´t forget to name your camera (“lc-a” or lc-a+) when you´re uploading them to your beta- home. Images with camera “lc-a or lc-a+” and tagged “lcadiary” will then go straight into the gallery on the anniversary site. After tagging them, please don’t forget to create a dedicated album for your LC-A Diary as well! Check the original post for more info.
Your amazing contributions to the anniversary projects, be they gorgeous photos, or scintillating stories, will find their way into our special LC-A 25th anniversary touring exhibition which will culminate in a grand slam final event! So you better be ready!

Would you rather lose your vision or your hearing? As photographers, we might choose the latter without a second thought, especially while viewing the festival photos that photographer Mart Vares captured with the New Petzval 85 Lens. Still, who doesn’t love the pleasant mechanical shutter sound of an old SLR that makes us commit to analog photography? While following the Nordic delegation at this years Waves Central Europe, we caught up with the Estonian band, Würffel, whose songs leave us feeling equally delighted.
In order to escape the world of facts and figures, tax auditor Martin Dietrich discovered photography as his creative counterpart almost seven years ago. On a trip to Paris he fell in love with analog photography and the magic of film has been fascinating to him since then. But he also appreciates the benefits of digital photography. For Lomography he tested the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Art Lens on his Fuji X-Pro 1 camera. Check out Martin's photos and learn more about the founder of the popular Neoprime magazine.
