But you do realize that according to the laws of the internet, there is pornographic lomography out there.

I have never actually developed a roll from the fisheye that I got from my birthday (I took a roll of color and I lost it) but yesterday I did some true shooting from the hip on a roll of b&w and my friend is letting me print at his house tomorrow.

I actually have a few problems with lomography (their cameras are "cool" because they are cheap, but the company - which was started by a couple of business students - completely overcharges) but I like the idea. I prefer normal photography, but lomography is a really fun way to mess around. I had a ton of fun with a Holga a few summers ago; see my first post in the photography thread.

I don't have a lomo camera, but I do take my compact DSLR with me everywhere, and I tend to add a lot of lomo effects to my daily portraits in Photoshop, so you could say I am a fan.

cool, lunchbox. i used to do that too but after tediously trying to emulate the fisheye effect with unsatisfactory results, i figured i just have to buy the camera itself.

But you do realize that according to the laws of the internet, there is pornographic lomography out there.

THERE IS? show me!  :lol:

you took it out to save bandwidth, remember? how about sharing your lomographs, we'd love to see them.

oh Rule 34, how I hate you

thanks for sharing. well i say it looks too good, need to be more vignette-y. i need to know; what holga is this? what kind of film did you use?

lomography has this whole philosophical thing going on, with its' 10 golden rules or whatever. to me it's all about the unpredictable results. the thrill, the rush of excitement waiting for your films to be developed.

When I took the pictures, I didn't know what lomography was. I only knew that my photo instructor (a college student) had given me a crappy camera with no viewfinder that leaked light left and right. I tried to make the best of it! I have no idea what film it was.

Post some of your own?

My dad has one, I used it once and then we put it into storage...I should pull it out! It has like 15 rolls of expired film too, which would be awesome.

I don't know! I used it about 7 or 8 years ago. It's probably dust by now.
