Lomography has been at the forefront of the analogue revolution for decades. Starting in 1992 with some Viennese students falling in love with the aesthetic of a particular Soviet camera (the iconic LC-A) - they founded a movement and a company that would introduce a new generation to the joys of plastic cameras and experimental film. Periodically innovating new cameras for existing formats - and sometimes bringing back formats specially for their cameras! - they are vibrant and creative

Second time around

I first shot Metropolis in 120 about a year ago and wasn't that happy with the results.

This time I used a roll of 35mm and was a lot more impressed. This particular roll was shot on the Film nerds photowalk in Oxford. It was a hot sunny day and the film was shot at ISO200

I particularly like the way the building have come out with an earthy tone to them. The film does seem to lend itself to these type of buildings.

Personally I think you need to find the right subjects for this film to work.


Came out like an expired, badly processed film with a rather sickly green cast. Not for me.....

Adept for Landscape Shots

Thought I'd try Metropolis out for some landscape shots and was very happy with the result. The desaturation and contrast you get with it gives the photos an interesting quality in combination with the prevalent green tint you get throughout. All in all I'd recommend if you're looking for something different for your landscapes.

Godzilla meets 28 Days Later

When I bought this film I had seen sample pictures but didn’t really know what to expect. But hey ho it can’t hurt to try new things. Unless that new thing is being a blindfolded sword swallower! Anyway, much like ronseal I did what it said in the tin and took it for a day out in the city. I have to say I am very pleased with the results. The film lends itself to distopian vibes very easily due to its muted green tones.

In my head I labelled the film ‘If Godzilla was in 28 days later’… and you know what if only he was.

out on the streets of Glasgow

I shot this Metropolis at ISO 200 in a Canon AE-1p in and around Glasgow in Feb 2021. Bit of a dull day so I reckon on future shoots might use ISO 100 to tone down the colour shifting and maybe lesson grain. I have another roll of this and will definitely try more street photography round Bristol on second roll. Bit of fun! Enjoy.
