My First Take On Lomography

I would like to share my latest obsession; Lomography. I have stumbled upon a lot of these awesome photos in  other blogs and was so amazed with the quality of the images.  "They got some good camera huh", I though to myself.  All the while I thought these were products of complicated settings from an expensive DSLR with lenses that create miracles in photos.  But to my surprise, these images were from old cameras called Lomo cams.  That was the time I discovered Lomography.

Lomography came from the name LOMO, a brand of film cameras that produce unique effects on photos.  Its the use of the film that produces these effects: vibrant colors, vintage effect, fisheye, etc.  I instantly fell in love with the images when I first saw them.  You can check them out in this site: www.lomography.com.  I don't have my own Lomo cam just yet, but I found the perfect alternative to produce these cool effects.  The Pixlromatic, an iphone application that allows you to edit photos to give them a lomo effect.  Check out these images I edited: my first take on Lomography!

  1. i really 'appreciate' people who still use lomo cams because it shows how much they're into taking cool and one of a kind photos. i 'appreciate' them because even with apps like yours that make these effects readily available, they take the time to buy rolls of films, develop it, and since theyre using film cameras, their shots are "pili" talaga..you cant take a pic, delete, take a pic, delete.. so ya, using apps to make things look like theyre taken by lomo cams, FOR ME, are kind of uncool....kaya buy one nalang! hahaha!
