Sharing knowledge with a Lomo newbie on Christmas day. How the ActionSampler can solve the post Xmas Dinner lull…..
It’s Chirstmas day and the family has gathered around the tree for pressie time. Yes we may not be children anymore but still. PRESENTS! Both myself and my sister got the ActionSampler Flash from Father Christmas. Her being a newbie to this Lomography malarkey, I became teacher. After Christmas dinner we got out the Lomo colour negative 800 film and I explained all I knew about ISO, expired film, shooting from the hip, accidental successes, colour film and bleaching. After overloading her with hints and tips we took to the streets for a walk with the dog, brother and boyfriend whilst the parents had a power nap.
On our walk I continued to encourage my sister to shake, roll and swoop the camera whilst I frenzied my hair or jumped off walls. We were jumping out of neighbours hedges, over the garden wall and getting the dog to chase the lens. It was certainly a good way to work off that post Turkey and wine lull with 36 action sampling shots.
We headed back home and discussed who, where and how we were going to get the photos developed on Boxing day if possible. It was great sharing my (little) Lomo knowledge with another, running around empty streets on Christmas day and making room for more pigs wrapped in blankets!

The Lomo LC-Wide creates an irresistible, saturated range of colors which is the perfect pairing for all you portrait connoisseurs out there. And with its brilliant 17mm Ultra Wide Angle Lens, you can get in on the action too! We loved how these proud portraits (and self-portraits) from our Online Community showed off the charming characteristics of the LC-Wide!

Losing his first LC-A+ camera during a life-changing trip left a deep impression on Svatopluk and opened his eyes to the enduring quality of film photographs. In this interview, he lays down the advantage of shooting with the LC-A and how it helped him appreciate the beauty of the day-to-day grind.

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!
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.
