Can you remember the joy and frustration of analogue photography, waiting for your film to come back from the developers and that thrill when you open the envelope to see you photographs for the first time? We love analogue and want to put the fun back into taking pictures that is why we are celebrating the fourth anniversary of Lomography in the UK by featuring a collection of the most stylish cameras for analogue fans.
Lomography is a community dedicated to experimental and creative analogue photography. The community share photos, tips and inspiration and supply a variety of low-fi cameras and experimental film designed for play. Anyone can be a Lomographer. Just pick up a camera and snap whatever you fancy, then wait to see what develops.
La Sardina is a great choice for the style conscious, decorated in a variety of prints including this lovely deckchair fabric. It has a wide angle lens, ideal for selfies and landscapes alike and it takes 35mm film. Add a flash and a selection of experimental films to see what this little camera is really capable of. You can find inspiration on the Lomography Sardina website. There are tutorials and galleries of Sardina images shared by Sardina users. Why not join in and share your own Sardina photographs.
Here in the South West there are plenty of opportunities to get out and about with your Sardina camera. Why not join Bath Photo Walk for their Autumn Photowalk in Victoria Park. Or meet local lomographers in Bristol. Bristol Lomo Club meet once a month.
You could store your images in this Ted Baker pretty floral photo album or display your favourites in pride of place on the fridge with this set of vintage fridge magnets from Cavallini.
