One of the most romantic walks I have been on recently was a trip to Roberts Park in Saltaire at the beginning of September. It looked beautiful even in the dying sunshine of golden hour.
Robert’s Park is located near the Shipley Canal in Saltaire. I visited this area on a particularly sunny autumn day around 5pm, when the sun was low in the sky and casting a golden light over everything. It is a great place for taking photos especially portraits, with the sun shining and highlighting people’s faces.
There are also lots of other things to photograph in the park, such as statues, bridges, running water from the canal, the bandstand, and 2 metal llamas! It is great for a lomowalk and I will be returning a lot this fall to get the most out of the sun for this year.
Alfredo Buonanno is a photographer who loves everything retro. When his friend Sergio showed him the Lomo'Instant Wide Central Park, Alfredo fell in love with the instant camera, instantly-- and it was the beginning of a beautiful new story. He recently took lovely, retro-style pictures with the Lomo'Instant Wide with the model Viktoriya Tori as his muse.
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.
Sip from a cup at a nearby cafe, try the sweet pastries and walk through the romantic streets of Paris with Morgane's photographs of her beautiful city. And as you enjoy the view, hear what this local has to say about her accomplice in taking such lovely photos.

'Snapshot' was our Tumblr keyword this week. We spent the past few days looking at troves of fresh samples from all corners of the globe. We got lured to the most effortless variety, everyday captures upgraded to showcase compositions. We invite you to look at the ones we bookmarked for future visits.
Among the many public events of last year's winter in my hometown Como (that I documented with my albums and with my articles), I think that the most important was the opening ceremony of the jubilee proclaimed by Pope Francis. I photographed everything with my beloved Canon AV-1. Take a look!
As the year comes to a close, Lomography Soho looks back and makes a countdown of the Top 5 events that happened in 2015. At the number 5 spot is the Serendipity Exhibition by one of our most prolific community shooters,Toby Mason.
It's human nature to be restless and imaginative. The real may be interpreted as what one sees or how one sees something. For the daydreamer, a scene from nature transforms into a canvas. Suddenly a field makes room for chemical coloring, all those anachronistic streaks that somehow look right. Or else, those beautiful colors amplified or subdued to their most pictorial shades. All in the world of trial-and-process film photography.
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.
