New Year's Resolutions

2017-01-02 3

Make 2017 a Happy, Healthy, Photography-Filled Year!

1. Catch Up with an Old Friend

This New Year, grab a Lomo’Instant Automat and make a pact with a friend to send each other an instant picture every month with a caption scribbled on the bottom. Keep your friend up to date and show them that even if you can’t always meet up, you’re super glad they’re part of your life.

2. Learn Something New

Go back to basics with a pinhole camera, square up to medium format, or grab some 16mm motion film and dive into the world of videography. We’ve got plenty of cameras, films and lenses for you to experiment with — as well as tons of tipster articles to help you out!

3. Keep Fit

Keeping fit doesn’t have to mean hours slaving away at the gym. Why not resolve to start or end every day with a photo walk? Get in shape and explore your creativity — grab a Lomo LC-A+ or Diana F+ and go see what you can find!

4. Travel More

There’s a beautiful, bizarre and bewildering world out there just waiting to be explored. Take a Lomography Art Lens with you and record your round-the-world adventures in vibrant colors, strong contrast, and as much swirly bokeh as you feel.

5. Challenge Yourself

There are plenty of Lomography Rumbles you can enter to stretch your photography skills. If you’re a long-time lover of landscapes, why not try entering a portrait competition? No one ever learned anything by staying in their comfort zone!

6. Do More for Charity

Why not combine being charitable with your favorite hobby? Select some of your best shots, buy some fancy crisps and turn your living room into a little photo exhibition! Invite all your friends, charge a small entry fee and send all the proceeds to charity.

7. Live Life to the Fullest

Take that trip, go to that party, buy those shoes and eat that cake — let 2017 be the year that you said “yes, why not?”. Take stills, make films, ignore the rules and listen to your gut. We can’t wait to see what you’ll create!
