What would our LOMO LC-A week be without a Flash Rumble? Here’s another one where we take things down a notch and just chill.
After partying and rocking hard all night (and morning), you’ll need to chill out and wind down. It could be the cozy hotel lounge you’re at, or a warm cup of coffee down the street. But just because you’re chilling doesn’t mean you can’t take some snaps with your LOMO LC-A. So we want to see your best chillaxed LC-A shot! The coolest one of the bunch gets 30 Piggies.
Prize(s): 1 winner of 30 Piggies. Winner will receive a special award badge straight to their LomoHomes
Film/Camera Type: Any LOMO LC-A photo not digitally enhanced or manipulated. Please keep in mind our Chillout theme.
Upload Limit: 1 Photo
Minimum Photo Dimensions: Submissions must be at least 768px in either width or height.
Meta data must be completed (camera, film, location & 3 tags)
We're kick starting a new series on the Magazine where we highlight alternative photography processes, with a focus on modern and less popular ones. Today, we feature one that's often discussed right here in our community: caffenol.
Yes, you read that right: Lomography has once again come up with a cool new product! But as much as we want to spill the beans right this moment—where would be the fun in that, right?—we've decided to make things a little more exciting by conducting a couple of rounds of good ol' guessing game. Sounds good? Step right in and see if you can crack our clues!
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!
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.
In 2015 we had been fortunate enough to talk with photographers, with practices and insights unique from one another, from all over the globe. And not only were we able to see their works; we were also able to dig a little deeper and find out what makes each one of them tick. In this special recap, we present a handpicked selection of insightful quotes from some of our most memorable interviews this year.
We're thrilled to present our new Kickstarter project—the New Lomography Daguerreotype Achromat 2.9/64 Art Lens! Inspired by the bold brass design of the world's first photographic optic, the Daguerreotype Achromat Art Lens is a versatile tool seeking the great return of dreamy imagery.

It goes without saying that street photography is one of the most exciting and fulfilling practices a photographer can do. But for some, especially the beginners, the prospect of hitting the streets can be a little daunting. Here, we dish out a few tips to help shake off anxiety.

We love a striking photo as much as the next person, but a unique point of view makes us head straight to a feature. Who should the world know more about? Who has rocked our perception of beauty, sexuality and creativity? These questions populate our notepads, and our list of photographers is quite long. For International Women's Day 2016, we whittle the directory down to our current favorites, photographers who resist labels (even the ones we give them) and dare the world to see what they see.
Stop asking questions and start making statements. We have teamed up with the historic W Washington DC in conjunction with FotoDC to create a wall during the week of FotoWeekDC - one of the biggest photography festivals in the US. Take inspiration and use your imagination to bring the W values of fashion, music and design to life for a Lomowall that will be created in the Living Room (lobby) of W Washington DC.
A self-portrait may take root in confidence, extreme shyness or alternate bouts of each. Leanne Surfleet goes through this kind of fluctuation when the camera is all eyes. The attraction—as far as we’re concerned—is the mix of uncertainty and a kind of quiet poise. And here and there, a flash of skin that is more a mystery than full-on revelation. Even Surfleet’s portraits of other people have the same hushed invite, as if to say questions are encouraged. There we took our cue.
