Like aliens, Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster, our Photos of the Week theme is a little legendary, hard to catch and all the way breathtaking!
Some lomographers (including me), go their whole lives without encountering one. Getting one is a mystery in itself, leaving camera experts dumbstruck on how to produce one consistently. What are we talking about? Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the infamous number leak – a one-of-a-kind light leak in medium format that emblazons the frame count numbers into your shot, giving it a unique and more often than not, unrepeatable effect.
Some have tried in vain to open the backs of their Holgas a bit but it just results in a normal leak. So how does one do it? No one knows. Sometimes its just a trait of the older Holgas. Maybe someday, we’ll find the answer. But for now, we will have to contend to watch and admire these beauties from our Photos page. Enjoy and start hunting those elusive numbers today!
Get to know our latest LomoGuru from Slovakia, Radoslav Režný. From the saturated palette to the way he composes his photos and captures the emotions of his subjects, it's hard not to be lured into his LomoHome.
Our Lomographers love their Petzval and, as a result, they have taken it to the most amazing places: gardens full of green, immensely busy cities and breathtaking landscapes. Yet, sometimes, all you need is what you have right at home. Keeping family memories with the Petzval Lens never looked this good, and golfpunkgirl does it well.
By now the Lomography site is like a pail of candied purple. Our confection LomoChrome Purple has produced forests and flower beds the shade of lavender macarons. Hard to resist the fantasy! But lately we have noticed darker, late-afternoon-sun versions. And we like what we see.

A road trip is a celebration of little freedoms. It’s a chance to break out of a rut and to be a little unruly. All the mischief may be off limits to the camera, so the things we do photograph need to serve our memory well: They must convey the relief, fun and color of our secret sprees.
Editing pictures with image manipulation software or a mobile app is not unheard of. An alienation of photos by needle and thread, on the other hand, is an intricate process. Los Angeles-based artist and photographer Diane Meyer has gained instant fame for her embroidered analog photos. In this interview, she talks about adding a new dimension to pictures as well as her source of inspiration and other projects.

This year marks the 70th anniversary of the publication of one of the most influential photography books ever, "Ballet" by the photographer, art director, and graphic designer Alexey Brodovitch. Brodovitch took a series of photos of classical dance in a very unconventional way, using very slow exposure times, trying to catch the true essence of Russian ballets. For this article, I took a series of photos at the Swing Crash Festival in my city, Como, held in June 2015.
