We’re not even feeling a tiny shred of guilt with this line-up of songs that make us want to party. Come and join us with this week’s instalment of PYHOF. Take a dip, the party temperature feels fine.
Indeed, we have that thank-god-it’s-Friday feel here in the Lomography HQ and we thought that we could join you guys who still have the Mardi Gras, SXSW and St. Paddy’s Day celebration hangovers a quick hair of the dog remedy when it comes to music.
So we dug deep into our own party boxes to get a playlist of songs that make us want to put our red cups up in the air and just get lost in the music. It’s a good thing that we have a few suggestions straight from the Lomo HQ.
We have a bit of everything from the timeless classics like U Can’t Touch This, Just Can’t Get Enough and Heart of Glass to the all out hits of 1901 and I Want to Break Free. Just don’t spill your drinks when you hear these songs and just feel a dance coming on. Dancing shoes are optional.
Would you rather lose your vision or your hearing? As photographers, we might choose the latter without a second thought, especially while viewing the festival photos that photographer Mart Vares captured with the New Petzval 85 Lens. Still, who doesn’t love the pleasant mechanical shutter sound of an old SLR that makes us commit to analog photography? While following the Nordic delegation at this years Waves Central Europe, we caught up with the Estonian band, Würffel, whose songs leave us feeling equally delighted.
We’re back on track with the Lomopedia series - the place to get a quick heads up on what’s what with cameras, lenses, and films you may come across with. For this comeback installment, we’re taking a look at the simple but dependable Industar 26M 50mm lens.
At the time of its inception, photography was considered less a fine art and more a scientific method of reproduction. But anyone who has dabbled in the craft will argue otherwise; that there consists a very specific artistry in the photographic medium. We spoke with Luxembourg-based filmmaker Catherine Dauphin about her thoughts on this wonderful art form. Join us as she answers some of our questions about film, photography, and her short film titled "The Art of Picture Taking."

Yes, you read that right: Lomography has once again come up with a cool new product!

With an expanded field of view and its ability to produce high quality images and capture minute detail, medium format photography has become the top choice of many photographers. Lomography is working hard to make sure that it keeps going with the continued production of medium format film and cameras. The current issue of German magazine FOTO HITS focuses on medium format photography. And with this rumble, we want to prove why medium format photography is king. Take your Diana F+, Holga 120, Lubitel 166+ or the new Lomo LC-A 120 and show us your best square shots!
