Lomography Loves Seoul!
I apologize for the lack of posts this month, as I have been getting packed and ready to move. But something caught my eye this morning that I just HAD to share. (It’s good that I got up early!)
I love Lomography. For those who don’t know, Lomography is a camera company that specializes in analogue, old-timey cameras and film. They have a multitude of cameras, including my favourites the Fish-eye, the Action Sampler (it takes 4 pictures on one frame!), the Diana Mini (you can take square shots, or half pictures), or the La Sardina, or the Lomo LC, the list really goes on and on. It’s a great alternative to digital – you get the excitement back about ‘Oh, my, I can’t remember what’s on this roll of film, I wonder how these pictures will turn out!’ Plus, the pictures come out with a unique, fun, retro look about them.
Some pictures I took in Korea with my Action Sampler. They look so cool!
I got an email from Lomography today about Lomography and Seoul. I knew that Lomography had a store in Hongdae, but I had no idea that they had been having a competition around the city! I wish I could have entered, I have SO many pictures taken with my Action Sampler that I could have used! But, even more exciting news, Lomography has introduced a new camera dedicated to the city of Seoul – the La Sardina Seoul! If you go to the Lomography home page right now, they have a huge picture of it, hangul spelling of Seoul and all! The La Sardina is a camera with lots of style – Lomography has been redesigning the La Sardina with lots of cool patterns, and now the Seoul camera is customizable! They give you 8 colourful patterns based on the colours of Seoul, and you get to pick which one you want to put on the camera. It’s awesome!

Not only that, because of the release of the La Sardina Seoul, many Lomography Gallery stores around the world are focusing on Korea and Seoul right now, like this Seoul workshop in Amsterdam. It is neat to see everyone get excited about Korea and Seoul as much as I do.
I wish I would have more time to go to the Seoul Gallery store, but as soon as I get to Toronto I’m proudly purchasing my La Sardina Seoul for my Lomography collection. Then I’ll come back to Seoul and take pictures with it! It will be perfect.
