    Spreading the Lomo Love

    "About a year ago, some members of Lomomanila were invited to give lectures on Lomography in popular universities in Manila. Such universities include De La Salle University, University of the Philippines and Ateneo de Manila University. We were invited as part of the schools’ alternative program. This year, Lomomanila also went corporate. We were invited by the inhouse camera club of Hewlett Packard called “Shutters” to lecture on Lomography. It was well received and everybody had fun. We have several outstanding invitations to go back to some of the above universities to give the same lectures.

    The Hong Kong Diana World Tour Event

    The Diana World Tour aims to unite Lomographers from all over the world with one common motivation - an immense love for analog photography! It's a travelling exhibition of all things Diana - including photo safaris, learning workshops, the immense "Detrich Colletion" of classic Diana camera and Diana clones, delicious meals, and fairly out-of-control parties. Appropriately, its very first stop is Hong Kong - the birthplace of the original Diana camera of the 1960's! Running from 8/1/08 to 8/3/08, the highlights will include:

    The "Hong Meow" Diana F+ Clone

    To commemorate the Diana World Tour event in Hong Kong (the very first stop of the Diana World Tour, mind you), we're thrilled to present an exclusive limited edition clone of the Diana F+ camera. "Hong Meow" is the phonetic translation of "Panda" in Cantonese - Hong Kong's spoken language. As in neighboring mainland China, the Panda is one of Hong Kong's most beloved symbols. This limited edition was designed by the Lomography Asia team and features:

    My Trip to Vienna: An Instax Travel Diary

    I recently took a trip to Vienna to visit my friends at the Lomography office. I decided to take along the trusty "Instax Cheki 55i":http://www.lomography.com/instant/cameras/cheki55 camera and keep a journal of my trip. The credit card-sized photos are perfectly portable, and each memory is instantly captured and shared in real-time. Each photo has space for a description, and now the pictures can tell a complete story.

    Lubitel Online Rumble

    It’s something about peering down through that waist-level finder. Sizing up your subject with the top lens and capturing it through crispy Russian glass with the bottom. It’s simply irresistible to people who love and adore life. People who are open-minded, enthusiastic, free with their ideas, philanthropic, endlessly curious, always travelling, constantly documenting, and completely awestruck by the enduring power of analog photographs. We’re looking for the most passionate, the seriously dedicated, the least expected, the pathologically random, and hardest of the hardcore Lubitel Lovers out there. In other words – people like you!

    Milo Ventimiglia from Heroes shoots with a Horizon

    Being the super-geek that I am, and not being able to attend the incredible "Comic Con":http://www.comic-con.org/ in San Diego, I was living vicariously through the flickr community, checking out photos of Joker-wannabees and scantily-clad femme-fetales, when I stumbled upon some photos of "Milo Ventimiglia":http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0893257/ from the sometimes awesome TV show "Heroes":http://www.nbc.com/Heroes/ at the 2007 Comic Con snapping away with a "Horizon":http://shop.lomography.com/horizon/.

    Round-the-Clock Challenge: In with the Crowd

    While rockstars and pop acts and punk bands are great subjects to photograph, personally I think that crowds are more interesting subjects. A sea of faces – sweating, jumping, singing along, holding up their lighters – simply fantastic.

    Round-the-Clock Challenge: Go ahead, Jump!

    I was browsing through some random photo albums the other day and noticed that a lot of people like ‘jumping’ photos. Arms up in the air, funny-faced, legs bent or spread a few feet from the ground. Don’t ask me why, but now I want to see more of those.

    The Diana+ 35mm Back

    It's difficult to choose between two lovers. On one hand, there's the radiant colors, quirky square format, and wonderful rolling action of 120 film. On the other, there's the incredible variety, el cheapo price, long-lasting nature, and easy development of 35mm. For the aficionados of the Diana+ and Diana F+ cameras, the choice no longer has to be made! This black hunk of plastic is essentially a marriage certificate for a blissful polygamous union of marriage to two analog film spouses at once!
