Addicted To Lomography

Posted on July 2009 at about 1:26 AM by hwa

Recently I had been addicted to Lomography, it’s a kind of photography effect which produce a very high saturated colors and over exposure, more like an old film photo, but for me it’s more toward the way you take the photo and display it as part of your daily life.

By right a Lomography photo should be taken by using a film camera which is able to produce Lomography effect, like the Lomo LC-A by LOMO PLC, but the same result can be achieve by using software like the GIMP and Adobe Photoshop.

The best thing about Lomography is that you can produce the same effect by using software, with this you don’t have to use a very high performance camera, an automatic camera or even handphone camera is good enough, whether or not the image result is good or not, it’s depend on your image editing skills.



I had created a new album for this Lomography photos, it’s under the album named “Something For Nothing” well I’m just a beginner so please don’t expect to much from it.

    Well, it’s nice to know that there is someone like you who’s also beginner in the world of lomo. Lomo is very special because it gives us extraordinary photographs, though, I may agree with you that there are photoshops that are making lomo effect nowadays… but you see, lomographers create something that defies technology. I mean, we can create the “real thing”… and not by using any software. I’m hooked to lomo and I’m a beginner also. Thanks.

    Photography at its worst. Lomography at its best
    I’m a self-managed collective. I love art…and I’m twentysomething.

    I understand what you mean by ‘real thing’, it’s the originality of the arts. But I’m actually enjoying the joy and fun when manipulating the photos, I can browse through a large archive of photos and pick any of it which I think is suitable then turn it into lomo effect and there it is! A whole new feeling of the photo turned out right in front of you! 🙂

    Yes I do agree that nothing beats the real thing, I mean with all the photoshoped lomo effect, you still can see how fake it is. But sometime when you are looking at a photo, you just feel like want to tweak it a little bit. 😉
