I’m pretty sure that all of you have one or more favourite bars to hang out in at night. For me and my friends, the bar of choice is definitely the CMC.
When I started to going out, me and my friends discovered this little alternative bar in the middle of St. Gallen. I’ve known of this bar for around 3 or 4 years already and I’ve always liked going there. When you come in you’ll be on the first floor where you can just sit at the bar and drink something. Some people say they offer one of the best coffees in the whole town but I don’t drink coffee so I wouldn’t know. You can drink other things too. From water to Coke to beer and firewater ;) You can also just read the newspaper or sit there and talk because it’s pretty quiet on the ‘upper floor’.
If you have finished reading your paper or have already drank your coffee you can go down to the basement where the real party starts. In the basement there are always some DJs playing different styles of music. You can here anything between reggae, drum and bass and hip hop. Sometimes the crowd is really into the party and other times there are just some good vibes downstairs. It also has a tabletop soccer where you can play against other visitors.
I really do like this little bar because it’s very familiar and the people there are all very alternative and not so into mainstream. I hope you understand what I mean. ;) It’s perfect to hang out in, to meet friends or have a nice evening. So if you’re in St. Gallen, go and check out ‘CMC’ in the Metzgergasse near the market square.
As many of you would already know, shooting under low light conditions requires more than a steady grip (or a tripod) if you're aiming for outstanding results. You must also have the proper gear, and that, of course, includes film. In this post, we list down five fast films that work their best under such conditions.
The yuletide season is just around the corner! And you know what this means –very soon you’ll be hanging out with your loved ones, sipping hot cocoa and trying your luck in skiing some snowy slopes. Make sure that you’re ready to seize these special moments with Lomography!
We all know about 35mm and 120 film, right? And since Lomography re-introduced 110 film, we have another film format to play with. But in the years past, many more film formats were in use. Let me introduce you to a few golden oldies and tell you about my experiences with them. Here's how I revived my Instamatic cameras.
Aside from browsing through beautiful photographs and reading interesting articles, hanging out in the shoutbox is another worthwhile activity to do in the community. Not only will you get updated on the latest in photography, you’ll also have a chance to share ideas, tips, and stories with fellow shutterbugs across the globe. The shoutbox is always brimming with entertaining conversation and it's all because of these Lomographers.
In case you missed the news, the LomoChrome Purple film that you know and love is now available in 16mm format, in limited quantities only. If you have a 16mm camera or know someone else who does, make sure to share the news! This beautiful film delivers a nostalgic, dream-like effect in purple tones. To illustrate, check out the movie by Julian Hand after the jump ...
You know that friend who hovers around after a picture and begs for a peek? That’s us. So when the first batch of Lomo’Instant Wide was shipped out, we naturally waited for happy new owners to share their one-offs. Here are some of our favorites.

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.
One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.
