Lately, I've noticed these words bandied about in a few photography sites, including Brian's Lightzone Clinic and wanted to learn more about what it means. I googled it and found http://www.lomophoto.com/. This kind of reminds me of the old Diana camera style of image... Am I right? I find the "!0 Rules of Lomography" to be somewhat encouraging.
So am I correct that these are very basic little cameras, or were and now have evolved - and that people who don't have them are trying to emulate them via art filters (the pin hole) and/or post processing techniques?The following are the company's 10 Rules of Lomography:
Take your LOMO everywhere you go.
Use it anytime - day or night.
Lomography is not an interference in your life, but a part of it.
Shoot from the hip.
Approach the objects of your lomographic desire as close as possible.
You don't have to know beforehand what you've captured on film.
You don't have to know afterwards, either.
Don't worry about the rules.
