ABOUT LOMOGRAPHY STYLE CAMERAS:
Lomography is the style of pop photography based on the quirky cameras by the Austrian camera manufacturer known as Lomo. It is trendy, there are lots of enthusiasts using LOMO cameras and shooting film. There are several camera types that fall under the Lomography genre. These cameras are fully manual and are usually poor technical cameras. They are plastic, and often have light leaks, poor alignment of their lenses, or other defects, which makes it a cool signature look.
Lomography is branded as being a spontaneous, candid view on photography.
Most of the cameras don’t even feature viewfinders. Instead, the photographer is supposed to just point and shoot. Using this kind of camera is seen as a reaction against traditional, formal photography. As an alternative approach to photography, Lomography supporters also try to push and pull their film in various ways to achieve some cool creative effects. The film is cross-processed by using slide film and developing it in chemistry that is intended for processing negative film.
Lomography is a very easy and exciting way to get into the realm of alternative photography. Once the door is opened, you’ll be surprised where it can take you. By working with materials and media, you’ll be amazed at what kind of art can be accomplished with these tools!
