Does it really come as a surprise that the very first snapshot I took this year captured our family’s New Year celebration?
For our New Year celebration, our family went to visit relatives in Rosales, Pangasinan for a few days. I brought the Horizon Perfekt and four rolls of film (two Kodak ColorPlus 100 and two Fujicolor Superia 400) to document the trip. There really isn’t much to tell about this picture; honestly, I already forgot taking this particular shot! Anyway, the woman holding a camera is my mom and the kid behind her is one of my cousins. It was my first time spending New Year’s Eve outside Metro Manila, and I must say it has been very different from our previous celebrations. Nonetheless, we all had a blast!
On a side note, I already have all the rolls processed. Thankfully, they all came out all right! But then I’ll be saving those shots for another post since I had to re-scan all the negatives – the lab failed to cut these panoramas properly! Oh, well.
We’re fizzing with excitement to introduce our latest Kickstarter project: the Lomo’Instant Square. We’re talking about the world’s first analogue camera to produce square-format Instax pictures. It features a 95mm glass lens for super sharp photos, an advanced automatic mode that takes care of exposure, all of Lomography’s signature creative features — and a compact, foldable design. The Lomo’Instant Square has launched on Kickstarter. Come join the fun and back us on Kickstarter now to save up to 35% on the planned retail price, and scoop all sorts of extra treats. Be sure to snatch up the deals before they run out. Be there and be square!
Throughout the years, this cult classic camera captivated many photography enthusiasts with its dainty looks and the dreamy photographs it took. It has been a constant companion that caused and captured many smiles.
By far the oddest-looking camera I own, the Electric Eye is an auto-exposure viewfinder camera made by Bell & Howell in the late 1950s. I picked one up online and ended up with another one, that came with a very cool, retro looking carrying case, from my grandfather. It took a little while to try these two out but after running some film I found that this camera is a lot of fun to shoot with.
Happy new year from the Lomography team! We're excited to announce our very first Lomo'instant Automat workshop, as well as an LC-A+ workshop & a rare Lomography camera Q&A. Book your space now and start the new year in analogue.

Mitchell Wojcik is based in Brooklyn, New York. He likes "Ghostbusters, and to make whatever comes to mind and document my life as I go." He used to put a lot of thought into things, but now prefers to have fun and not think about it at all. Hmm, sounds like a perfect match for the Lomo'Instant Automat Glass!
