I WANT A LOMO!

What is a Lomo? Well, It's short for lomography.

Lomography emphasizes casual, snapshot photography. Characteristics such as over-saturated colors, off-kilter exposure, blurring, "happy accidents," and alternative film processing are often considered part of the "Lomographic Technique." source


10 Golden Rules of Lomography.

1. Take your camera everywhere you go
2. Use it any time – day and night
3. Lomography is not an interference in your life, but part of it
4. Try the shot from the hip
5. Approach the objects of your lomographic desire as close as possible
6. Don’t think (william firebrace)
7. Be fast
8. You don’t have to know beforehand what you captured on film
9. Afterwards either
10. Don’t worry about any rules

Sample Lomo Photos from Lomography.com


The particular lomo camera I want is the Hello Kitty Fisheye.

Lomography and Sanrio have come together to collaborate on a new Fisheye 1 camera. Wrapped in a vibrant blue-and-white outfit and with a red accent in honour of Hello Kitty’s bow, the special edition camera features iconic Hello Kitty designs on the front and back and an embossed Hello Kitty logo on the lens cap. It’s supercute and a must-have for every fan and collector! Just like the rest of the Fisheye family, it brings your subject into a tight circle, and stamps it in a convenient 35mm print. Radiant colours, superior sharpness, in a fun, barrel-distorted perspective!

Highlights:
-Yields a 170-degree perspective in a compact circle
-Superbly sharp pictures, even in extreme close-ups!
-Premium plastic optics for excellent Fisheye shots
-Supercute Hello Kitty design with blue-white-red detail

From the Hello Kitty Fisheye point of view:

GO GET LOMO NOW!
I own a Holga, but it's hard for me to find the film since it uses 120mm film camera. Fish eye use 35mm film, easier to find. If you got questions about lomo just ask me anytime! xo
