Since two weeks all we’re talking about here in the Lomography Gallery Store Berlin is the making of the Lomography City Guide Berlin. The whole month of October is dedicated to the city guide in the making with workshops, parties and secret missions (yet to come) taking place to dive deep into Berlin with our lomographic cameras. Our mission: to take as many breathtaking Lomographs and submit as many LomoLocations as possible to create the best city guide ever, the Lomography City Guide Berlin!
„Oh my what a pity I’m not a Berliner“ you’re saying now? But that ain’t a problem! Lots of Lomographers have been to Germany’s capital, shot great pictures (just look at the Best of Berlin competition) and went to great places. For all you Berlin lovin’ Lomographers out there the Berlin City Guide microsite is now available in English. Come by and have a look – everything you need to take part in the project is over there.
All you need for creating a LomoLocation for the City Guide are amazing Lomographs, two to three lines of text and the address of the location – voilà, you’re now in the quest of having your own personal LomoLocation published in the Lomography City Guide Berlin! And it’s not a miracle to get your place in the hall of fame: if you’re funny and creative we can already smell your LomoLocation printed on sweet glossy Hong Kong paper!
And if you are by any chance in Berlin these days come and join our workshops every Saturday. There’s a big closing party on the 30th of October and til then we gather every Thursday evening in the store to spend quality time with photos and drinks. Here’s a video of yesterdays meeting where the results of the Spinner 360° workshop were presented:
Our Lomographers love their Petzval and, as a result, they have taken it to the most amazing places: gardens full of green, immensely busy cities and breathtaking landscapes. Yet, sometimes, all you need is what you have right at home. Keeping family memories with the Petzval Lens never looked this good, and golfpunkgirl does it well.
It's no secret that the Lubitel 166+ produces bold, saturated colours that'll make your jaw drop to the floor! But the tones and contrast of this twin-lens camera carry across to black and white just as brilliantly. Here are some breathtaking grayscale photographs from our Online Community!
Lomography and The Cult teamed up to invite Lomographers to show us your Hidden Cities - those secret places that you escape you, the worlds within worlds. See the winners and some of our favorites here!
This article, the beginning of a new series, is dedicated to the comparison of some cameras with a plain glass viewfinder, without focusing aids, except the possible presence of a rangefinder. As you can discover here, our composition depends on the selected viewfinder. Take a look!
There are many possible reasons for taking pictures. It could be to document an event, to capture breathtaking scenery, to preserve a fond memory, or simply, to have a snapshot of someone close to your heart. Whatever the reason, there's almost always a story behind a picture, no matter how significant or trivial it may be. And for lomographers, nothing beats the feeling of having that story unfold in your hand, in the form of a print. If you want a quick keepsake from that treasured moment or a snapshot of that special someone though, you can have it instantly, through Lomo'Instant Stories!
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!
As Lomographers, we have our own tips, tricks, and styles — and now you can share those secrets to inspire others! We’re teaming up with online learning community Skillshare to give you the opportunity to showcase your skills in analogue photography through teaching.
As a core member of Yamanaka Yuko, a local hiking group based in Hong Kong, AM Renault is deeply in love with nature. He is also part of the creative photography group Six Dimen Boy and is good at intertwining photography with art and design elements -- making photos not only useful for documenting what we see, but also as a means to tickle the imagination. The young and talented AM tried out the New Russar+ lens while traveling in Japan with his father. He talks about his experience and shares the sights from his journey in this Lomography Magazine exclusive.
Aside from being an immensely talented lomographer, what makes him a perfect LomoGuru is his burning desire to share his knowledge. The city where he lives is full of people who are interested in analog photography, but the lack of easy access to film and equipment poses a challenge for them to pursue their passion. To keep them motivated, Hugo organizes workshops and tours on different film photography techniques and DIY tricks. Let's give a loud round of applause to Hugo Pereira, better known in the community as zulupt, our LomoGuru from Marinha Grande, Portugal!

Everything about a person can be read upon the sight of his face -- the squint of eyes, turn of lips or raise of brows immediately paint one's feelings like an open book; but these elements are shrouded in English photographer Toby Harvard's portraiture.
