This is What Happened at the 20th Anniversary Party!

A lot of amazing people came to our 20th anniversary party. See how it was if you weren’t able to come, or if you just want to rekindle all the fun we had together.

There was a lot of surprises for the celebration: a funny photocall, a swing manouche concert, a contest, the presentation of the new special edition of the LC-A+ (specially made for the occasion), the new book LOMO LIFE, a fantastic DJ and the best cake you’ve ever tasted.

With the arrival of our first guests, the party started with Chino’s rhythm and his concert of blues / swing jazz: we all got the swing, he gave us the best of the moods. While enjoying the live music we started making the first pictures, in which the well-known faces of some regular Lomographers obviously appeared.

As time was going on, the shop was getting smaller and smaller to take in all the people that were still arriving for the invitation or just because they felt attracted by so many color and fun. Everybody was welcome to join us, but just after taking part of our photocall.

We also were entertained by the contest we organized together with Moritz in order to choose the best ’90s look, chasing and picturing the retro style of our guests, and then choosing the winner.

The new LC-A+ 20th anniversary special edition couldn’t have had a better presentation! In the culminating moment of the party our guests were hundreds. Thanks to the splendid answer of the multiple Lomographers we got, who brought the store to a standstill, even expanding to some of the surrounding streets!

And of course we had a cake, because there’s no good anniversary without a cake, and for this we had the pleasure of counting with the best pastry cook we could imagine: annita

DJ DGeral, our favorite DJ in Barcelona was in charge of heating the place with the best ’90s songs to dance until the end of the party. She reminded us through each song that it’s been already 20 years since Lomography keeps maintaining the analog spirit alive as the very first day.

    Tipster: DIY X-Pro Redscale

    Browsing through the Lomography website, you can find a lot of redscale shots, which are all done on color negative films. I asked myself if it’s possible to redscale a slide or chrome film and then cross process it. (And yes, it is.) In this tipster I’m going to teach you how to create the bloodiest homemade redscale film I've ever come across.

    Cinematographer Michal Dabal on the Petzval Lens

    Here’s what happens before we interview a photographer. We gush about the work though we have yet to find out the cameras and processes behind the brilliant composition or the light architecture. And even when they haven’t used a Lomo camera, we feature them anyway. But every once in a while comes a pro who uses one of our premium lenses at work and our fun cameras off-duty. This makes us mighty glad, more so when their images are good and worth sharing. We count cinematographer Michal Dabal's work among them.

    A Compilation of Lomo'Instant Stories

    There are many possible reasons for taking pictures. It could be to document an event, to capture breathtaking scenery, to preserve a fond memory, or simply, to have a snapshot of someone close to your heart. Whatever the reason, there's almost always a story behind a picture, no matter how significant or trivial it may be. And for lomographers, nothing beats the feeling of having that story unfold in your hand, in the form of a print. If you want a quick keepsake from that treasured moment or a snapshot of that special someone though, you can have it instantly, through Lomo'Instant Stories!

    How to Develop Photos on Stone in a Darkroom

    I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!
