Pop Goes the Lomo

Ok. That title is really cheesy. But if I can't be cheesy on my own blog, where can I be? I first heard about Lomography from Nanikaa, who bought a Lomo camera and displayed some of her photos on her blog. Then from Sprayglue who found some really awesome Lomo photos on Facebook of South Africa.Lomography, which became was sort of hipster-trendy, has now gone pop. Atleast that's sort of what I think about things when they are sold at Urban Outfitters. Kind of cool that these cameras are now so accessible, but once everyone starts to take blurry, nostalgic looking photos, the look might become kind of boring.

Cameras from Urban sold for $38:More interesting Lomo photos can be found on Lomography.com. Check out this site if you're unfamiliar with this kind of camera/photography, it's really pretty interesting.

I totally agree with you on the Urban point - Lomo cameras are wonderful and about to be very, very overexposed (so to speak!). So sad.

I b ought a lomo camera a few years ago. I can't remember what is was called but it is the one with the 4 lenses. Have only taken one roll of film and they didn't turn out very well! I know it is everywhere now but everything looks better lomo'd. Do you know you can get an action on photoshop now? I was playing with it last night and it is cool. Email me shoegalnz{at}gmail{dot}com and I will send you the link.
