My one day analogue adventure through the streets of Montreal. Walking with my trusty LC-A+ taking pictures of things that are seemingly ordinary but behind the lens it is anything but.
It was a hot day but not crazy, melting hot. I just took my LC-A+, loaded it with X-Pro 200 Lomo film and I was out the door.
Walking the streets, riding in the car…I took pictures of various passersby, of anything and everything. I love street photography, mainly because it seems to make something that is ordinary to the naked eye, extraordinary when you see it through the lens.
In my case, the lens was of LC-A+ and it just couldn’t get any better. Or so I thought. When I got my scanned negatives back, cross-processed and all…I was astounded! The colors, the feel, and the mood was exactly how I wanted to capture the day.
It was amazing! Now that is the way to end a gorgeous day!
Mere days before my two week adventure I spontaneously inherited Lomography’s original gem of immediate satisfaction. Armed with the most creative take on instant photography yet, I was able to see Salamanca, Oviedo, Santander, and Madrid through a rare lens.
A year and a few months since it was introduced, the Lomo LC-A 120 continues its exciting journey around the world—from busy streets to scenic far-flung places and everywhere else in between. Here are just some of the many places and faces encountered by this trusty, compact medium format camera (and their adventurous owners, of course!) in recent months, in photographs.
This article is dedicated to one of the finest British sport photographers, Monte Fresco. In his 30 years of reportage for the Daily Mirror, he took some of the most iconic photographs in sporting history. He covered football, tennis, and boxing. But it is his ice skating pictures that I am most fascinated with. Using my own lens, I give him a modern tribute.

This is the story of a negative and the memory of loved ones that are gone, but are still present on an old analogue celluloid film. It's the emotional power of analogue photography that lasts forever.
In the first part of my Lomo'Instant Wide Review I already showed pictures you can take with the standard 90mm lens, the wide angle lens, the close-up lens, the splitzer and the remote control. But with all the other extras this camera can do so much more!
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.
The evenings are lighter and the sun is creeping through. It’s the perfect time to dust off your cameras and get shooting again. Why not take some inspiration from our lineup of workshops, exhibitions and walks to get you in the analogue mood!
