The moment when you go to the drugstore and you know you can finally watch the latest shots you have taken with your beloved Lomo is one of the greatest feeling I can imagine. Although the analogue photography has so many surprises and possibilities ready, it is fallen into oblivion with many people. But there is one company, which offer resistance against the digital grind. This company is called Lomography and now I allow you a small insight in my analogue work.

My first Lomo I get, was a birthday present of my beloved friends. It was a Fisheye camera, which allows you to take pictures with a 170° objective. You load it with a 35mm (this is the main size of films, there are some more sizes, like 120mm or 110mm) and can start right now with your shooting. One year later I got the best accessoire, the Fisheye Submarine. The Submarine is the sturdy, reliable partner for every underwater adventure. But enough with the explanations, check out my results.

My second Lomo I get, was the small, but lovely Diana mini. It is a tiny camera you can take everywhere you go. You can also fill it with a 35mm film and just shoot. The most thing I like on Lady Di (I call it like that, because I always personalize my stuff) is the fact, that she has two different formates. She can take your pictures in 24x24 or in 17x24 and that's awesome, because with the 17x24 format you can shoot 72 pictures with one film instead of the regular 36 pictures. Bellow you can see some examples.

Finally I show you just one more of my Lomo's. It's a special camera called Multisampler and the unusual on this camera is, that it has 4 lenses instead of one. So you can take 4 pictures in a row and it look like a very tiny movie. But this camera has no flash, so it is a little bit difficult to try it in a room or at a foggy or cloudy day.

In conclusion I will tell you the 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.
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.

If you are in the mood for more impressions, check out the Lomography Homepage. (There you can also order different kinds of cameras and it is not that expensive!)
