Lomography Society

The Lomography Society  is still strong, armed with a new website displaying new products and keen Lomography enthusiasts sharing their lomo-style photos.

The Lomography craze came about when two Austrian art students, Wolfgang Stranzinger and Matthias Fiegl, stumbled across a second-hand Lomo in a Prague op-shop. Knowing it was a spy camera they took on the spy persona and captured their surroundings shooting from the hip in haphazard directions as opposed to the traditional camera composition.

The results were random moody shots, which boasted obscure light effects against vibrant colour and movement. They spread the word and students from all over Vienna were became obsessed with the spy style that is Lomography. Lomos began appearing as installations at raves; a self defined interpretation of the youth culture. And so, the Lomographic revolution began.

They’ve even set 10 golden rules to live by:

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.

I’ve been following Lomography for a while now and hope that one day they will bring out a digital camera as I have lost the will for slide/film. Until the digital Lomo comes out I will keep cheating with the ‘Hipstamatic’ iPhone ap. Here are my results with my iPhone 3…

Find your iPhone or iPad App

On the weekend I discovered there’s a way you can locate your iPhone or iPad if you misplace it or if it’s stolen. Introducing the free Find my iPhone App – how exciting is that?

To find your phone, log in through the app and it searches for the device. When it finds it you click on the icon and it shows you on a map exactly where it is. You can send a message to the phone or have an alarm go off if you think it’s nearby, or you can remote lock the phone so then no one can get into your information.

Click here for all the information on how to set it up. It is really easy.

Isn’t it amazing how fast technology is developing. If you have found your device using Find my iPhone I would love to hear your story.

Yours in apps,
