Lomography is a quite unknown term, but many of us practice it more than once. Actually, what some consider mistakes like exposure defects or over-saturated colors are what makes lomography so special.
This movement was born in early ‘90s by a group of Viennese students who discovered the Lomo LC-A camera while on vacation in Prague. Since then lomography has grown into an international movement that uses photography as a creative way to capture the world.
Its name was inspired and delivered from the Russian “LOMO” cameras. But in fact, lomo photos can be taken not only with LOMO cameras, but also created with an ordinary snapshot and Photoshop.
The characteristics of lomo photography are blurred edges, oversaturated colors, rainbow-colored objects, vignetting, and off-kilter exposure. When it comes to other photography types, all these things can be considered as mistakes, but not in lomography.
