Analogue Lifestyle

  • Mom and Me: Every year, much of the world celebrates Mother’s Day on the second Sunday of May. This occasion is perfect not only for showcasing our most recent lomographs with our moms, but also for unearthing those old, almost forgotten analogue snaps of our younger selves with our ever patient and loving mothers. Time to whip out those old negatives and scan them quickly with the LomoKino Smartphone Scanner!
  • Photographing Mom: Aside from those photos with mom, the occasion also calls for sharing those impressive portraits we’ve taken of these amazing women. Whether she’s your own mom, aunt, wife, sister, cousin, or best friend, if she’s a wonderful mother, tell us about her!
  • Reel Time with the LomoKino: May is also a month to look forward to for the annual Cannes Film Festival in France. Whether you’re an ardent cinemaphile or a cinematographer in the making, now is the best time for you to showcase your short films taken using the LomoKino! Looking for inspiration? You can take a look at the LomoKino film of Palme D’Or winning Director Apichatpong Weerasethakul called Ashes!
  • The Lomographer at Work: For many around the world, Labor Day falls on May 1st, so this month, we’d like to see a slice of your day at work through your lomographs. What’s your usual way to work like? Do you have an office space with a view? Is your desk spic and span or an organized chaos? We’re curious about all these and more!
