I’m at that age – all my friends are getting married. I have four weddings to attend this year, I had four weddings last year, and I have already got three weddings to attend in 2013.
Weddings are great. What could be better than spending a day with close mates, celebrating the marriage of your friends and enjoying a few drinks and a boogie.
I’ve found that the Lomo LC-A is the perfect companion to a wedding – it’s small enough to fit in your pocket but it takes big photos! And when the sun goes down and the guests hit the dance floor, you can just fit a colour splash flash and keep on shooting.
Cross processing your photos enhances all those wonderful wedding colours – the girls’ dresses, the blue summer sky, the disco lights.
I took my LC-A to my friends’ wedding last June. Kath and Pete got married in Brecon in Wales. Because it was a special day, I decided to bust out a special film – a roll of Ektachrome – my favourite. We had loads of fun that day. I think the colour shift from cross processing the film really helps convey the excitement of the day’s events.
One thing is for sure, my photos are so different from anything else taken by any of the other guests and much more interesting that the cliché shots taken by the wedding photographer.
The Lomo LC-A is the camera that started the Lomography movement. With full controls and wide ISO range, this automatic gem is perfect for beginners and professionals alike. Get your own Refurbished LC-A in our Shop!
LomoAmigo and Photographer C.S Muncy got married a few weeks ago. For his wedding portraits, he chose to work with his friend, B.A. Van Sise, who shot with the Petzval lens for the very first time for this wedding and sent us such beautiful wedding pictures. Get to know him in this interview.
I have been constantly returning to the Sahara, and my last visit was the fifth in a row. Every visit was full of excitement and surprises. I feel like this place has become my second home. This year, I decided to travel there for a fortnight.
I traveled to Cartagena de Indias, Colombia in May 2015 with my twin sister. Our birthday was on the 31st, and for the last few years we've had a silent pact to try to spend our birthdays traveling as much as we could (and as long as we’re single!).
Summer is finally here – and it’s the perfect timing to take the plunge and reconnect with photography and experimentation. Whether capturing your best friendly moments or memorising the landscapes of your holidays – we have made a list of summer essentials ready to fulfil your creative desires.
Last year, my wife and I visited the Parque Natural de Sintra-Cascais close to Lisbon. It was a gorgeous hike from some beautiful ruins to the most western point of the European mainland, Cabo da Roca.
With the days getting longer and the weather getting warmer, it's a perfect time to bring out your Lomo LC-Wide for those road trips with friends, adventures at the skate park, and lazy picnics at the park! Those spring scenes are bursting with warm light and captivating colors, the perfect subject for this versatile 35mm camera. Check out some of our favourite spring-themed community shots taken with the Lomo LC-Wide!
Some months ago the wonderful city of Matera, chosen as the European Capital of Culture 2019, hosted an exhibit featuring the works of an important Italian social photographer: Pepi Merisio, who had also donated all photos shown to the local public library. To pay homage to this great artist, I have selected a series of photos that I took in this place last summer. Take a look!
Abandoned locations are often surrounded by an air of mystery and beauty that beckons the adventurous ones to venture into them and have a look around. A few years ago, hodachrome and his friends had the opportunity to visit one such facility in Fukushima.
Brazil is an awesome country for traveling. There's so much to explore, each place very different from one another. It will definitely take a stretch of trips just to get to know this this South American pearl. I finished my copa tour last year in Marajó, the island of bulls—it just might be an eternal highlight for me.
Australian singer-songwriter Courtney Barnett sings about the frustrations, disappointments and the mundane aspects of life in her own animated and sometimes Dylan-esque style. Her debut album "Sometimes I Sit and Think and Sometimes I Just Sit" was released this year and has been getting positive reviews. We tweeted about her new album and she responded to say that she loved Lomography. It was the perfect opportunity for a shoot and an interview.
We all know about 35mm and 120 film, right? And since Lomography re-introduced 110 film, we have another film format to play with. But in the years past, many more film formats were in use. Let me introduce you to a few golden oldies and tell you about my experiences with them. Here's how I revived my Instamatic cameras.
One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.
It’s finally here! Fully automatic, jam-packed with creative features, and super easy to use, the Lomo’Instant Automat is the ultimate instant camera that lets you do it all.
