The growing popularity in the Lomography trend hasn’t come about by accident. The desire to capture fun-filled moments on color saturated film has now become a worldwide phenomenon and although many feel that it’s purely for amateur photographers, there’s a lot to be said for such large amounts of people engaging with film and photography for the first time.
The camera and film combinations on offer can also produce some extremely interesting and beautiful results with far more variation and artistic license than any app filter will allow you to apply to your photographs.
As far as I’m concerned, it’s all about enjoying photography and one of Lomography’s primary guidelines is to carry you camera with you everywhere, which I can recommend as having a camera to hand allows you to capture the moments in life when artistic vision strikes.
This collection of photos contains shots taken with a different cameras using a selection of films and hopefully highlights the diversity of Lomography as well as the ability to create eye catching images through the medium of film.
Here are a few links to really useful tutorials and articles that will teach you more about this type of photography:
