So what could it be this time? I promise myself not to give you any clue, but it’s a kind of a 2 in 1 review where they battle it out with their camera shutters!
For the majority of us who owns more than one camera, there’s always a question that’s clouding our heads, intriguing us about which one can take better photographs. Our Lomo-guru Mephisto19 took the challenge and brilliantly conducted a showdown between the two variants of the most wide-sweeping Horizon cameras!
With his blow-by-blow account of this match (complete with pictures!) It showed us that they perform at their optimum level when used correctly and both cameras are sure winners! Good job Stefan, Congratulations!
You won't believe what we have in store for you with the launch of our newest mystery product. What a crazy idea, they thought. It can't be done, they said. But at Lomography, we know that there's a first time for everything. So we've decided to travel back in time and have a quick look at some of the unbelievable ‘firsts’ of photographic history. Could these milestones have anything to do with our mystery product?

Futuristic electronic duo Prince Rama reached out for a chance to test the Fisheye. Based on their energy and music, which involves elements of performance art, dance-club initiation rite, and vintage VH-1 hair-metal-bravado, we couldn't resist. We were not disappointed by what they came up with!
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.
It is general knowledge that history—ruled and written by austere patriarchy—has not been so kind to women. Photography is one of the rare exceptions; womankind has set its pervading presence and participation in photography since the birth of the camera in the 1800's. Lomography traces the role of women in photography with a special, comprehensive summary for International Women's Day.
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!
Anyone with a phone camera can now call himself a photographer. The Internet hosts photos of almost anything under the sun, and it does not take a researcher to scavenge, nor a pro to reproduce them; social media has made it all easier. So what now? How do art experts judge aesthetic value?
