in Inspiration,lomography

Lomography is an international socio-cultural movement using photography to capture the world around us in a creative, unpredicted, playful and spontaneous way.

The Lomography website explains it best: “Lomography is happening in the here and now, in the minds and shutters of Lomographers around the planet and in the analogue universe that, if anything, we are only starting to explore.” So essentially, Lomography documents and preserves moments of your life that even you would miss, if it were not for tiny, magical silver halide crystals!

The 10 rules of Lomography are:

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
