Adventures in Lomography

27.3.10 - 15:07
I've been getting more into photography recently so I started looking at some fun ways of taking pictures without getting into the expensive realm of digital SLRs. First I looked at Polaroid cameras - although Polaroid have stopped making instant film (I think they'll be back!) Fuji still make cameras and 'Instax' film. This is how I came across the PoGo printer. Its a tiny device that prints wallet sized stickers straight from your digital camera or phone! (its been out for a while but it has come down in price a lot recently.)

Then I began looking at film cameras. I was charmed by Lomo photographs I saw on people's blogs and on Flickr. Lomography uses cheap old Russian film cameras (or reproductions of them) to make images which are creative and experimental.

I now have a Smena Symbol (in the picture). I loaded it up with some colour film and went out to take some pictures around where I live and work. I'm really pleased with how they came out:


  1. Those are really great.
    I would like to see some more soon!

  2. Thanks.
    Theres some more on my Flickr if you are interested:

  3. Wow I love the camera and the photos they have an interesting effect to them like a glow of some sort!
    Love your blog x

  4. I saw the flickr, they're great! For real! I really like them a lot ♥
    Seem to be so much fun!
