There are electric poles that are built on the sea at Kisarazu in Chiba Prefecture which makes for a very eccentric scenery.
In Japan, there are electric poles that are built on the sea. Where do you think they are located? Somewhere in Nankoku? Shima? Okinawa?
The one I went to is at Kisarazu in Chiba Prefecture. It took about 1 hour from Tokyo to go there via the Aqualine Express Bus and the scenery is totally fantastic!
The sea was having a high tide on the day I visited, however I got a glimpse of a bit of land out of the seawater. If time allows, you can also choose to visit the nearby places. Also, when spring tide occurs, it seems that the electric poles and land would be submerged in seawater. I definitely would like to watch a scenery like this! I will come back again for this purpose someday.
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!
The paintings of Rembrandt van Rijn and Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio are known for their mastery of brightness and contrast in portraiture or scenery. Their influence on the visual arts has extended even to photography. In this capsule lesson, we tackle the principle of chiaroscuro, a technique used by the Renaissance artists to master light and shadow.
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.
Spring is here and we have a super line up of workshops and events for March.

There will also be a new exhibition in store from the very talented Andrej Russkovskij.
There’s a certain quietness to Kadin Tiu's work. Her paintings and photos are never obtrusive, but there seems to be a story tucked somewhere underneath. She recently collaborated with Lomography on a series of photos using the Minitar-1 lens, which she talks about in this short interview.
We're grateful for the overwhelming support from all our KickStarter backers. For those who were late to the party, we're happy to let you know that the Daguerreotype Achromat 2.9/64 Art Lens is now available for pre-order in the shop! Estimated delivery date slated for January 2017!
What makes an engaging image? What makes a photograph seem more like a memory than just an image? How is it able to make you feel as if you were right there, in that moment, experiencing the scene first hand?
Papajay is a Hong Kong-based film director who joined the LomoKino Festival in 2013. An expert at shooting movies using film, Papajay still shoots using Super 8 and Super 16 cameras for his film projects. This time, he tried a very rare medium for film-making — LomoChrome Purple 16mm Motion Film.
Seeing cool masked photos on the Lomography site made me want to experiment with the Lomo'Instant. Making masks for the Lomo'Instant is slightly different than that for other Lomo cameras, but the steps in this article should make it easy.
There are about 127 active volcanoes in Indonesia, one of the most popular ones being Mount Papandayan, located 2,665 meters above sea level in Garut, West Java. My boyfriend and I usually go hiking together so we decided to spend our long weekend holiday (three days/two nights) at Mount Papandayan.
At the time of its inception, photography was considered less a fine art and more a scientific method of reproduction. But anyone who has dabbled in the craft will argue otherwise; that there consists a very specific artistry in the photographic medium. We spoke with Luxembourg-based filmmaker Catherine Dauphin about her thoughts on this wonderful art form. Join us as she answers some of our questions about film, photography, and her short film titled "The Art of Picture Taking."
In prime areas of New York and San Francisco, the phrase ‘rush hour’ is always on the menu. Drive up to Reno, and the same expression fizzles. Many roads are framed by mountains and shrubbery, a picture of calm in the city. But the night makes up for the day’s stilly mood. Casinos flaunt LED signs and marquees, a treat for urban photographers.
