DWIs (Driving While Intoxicated) are bad, but PWDs (Photographing While Driving) can be great!
Have you ever been driving and seen something really cool, but didn’t have the time to stop? Now you don’t have to, because you can take your photos while the car is moving. This tip works during the day or at night and can get you great results.
First off, I would recommend only using your camera if you are the passenger and not the driver, you don’t want to get into an accident or a ticket.
Other than that the idea is pretty simple. Grab your favorite, get in the car and start snapping away. I have found that the Supersampler works especially well for daytime shots while the car is moving. And nighttime can open up a lot of opportunities for any camera with a B setting (I used the Diana F+).
Overall, I am quite happy with my results and I fully plan on keeping my camera close on any drive, because I never know what my cameras might see.
Most artists are known to be empathetic, capable of feeling everything, both good and bad, in their surroundings. Some see it as a curse driving them to madness. Brittani Sensabaugh chooses to see it as a gift.
Animals are unpredictable subjects of photography, especially while using film. It's always best if you document them in their natural habitat, but if they're at the zoo or wildlife park, be prepare to compose smartly. Here are some brilliant photographs from the Lomography community.
Everything about a person can be read upon the sight of his face -- the squint of eyes, turn of lips or raise of brows immediately paint one's feelings like an open book; but these elements are shrouded in English photographer Toby Harvard's portraiture.
We had a huge response to the Lomography x Life competition and the Black and White theme showed off what great photographers you all are. It was a tough decision to make but we've finally chosen the winners. Will it be you?
Speak of South Korea and, chances are, the bustling capital city Seoul and the charming island of Jeju would be the first destinations to come to mind—and for very good reasons. But while these top tourist draws are definitely worth the visit, the rest of the country is dotted with many more gems often unheard of to outsiders. Here are a few of them.
Darkness and movement are sometimes the film photographer's 'frenemies.' Hyped and physically tiring events such as concerts can be tricky to shoot especially on film, but here's a gallery to prove otherwise.

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.
She took her first photo a while back not knowing that it will change her life forever. Her photographs are mysterious and beautiful, someone would even say with a touch of darkness, but she also enjoys playing with light.
