Actually, it isn’t the question. The Question is What is LOMO.
A LOMO is indeed as Ian has found, a cult camera. Actually a cheap Russian made camera that has developed a cult following.
There is a society dedicated to LOMO which lists a number of rules to belong to the Lomographic Society, a loose collection of LOMO and toy camera shooters dedicated to spontaneous and fun picture taking.
On film, of all things!!
Above is a link to read all about the lomographic society.
Here’s a link to the site I found wherein you can get details on how to make your pix look LOMO.
I’m thinking of sussing out freecycle to see if anyone has a LOMO camera lying around the house… just to have a fiddle around for myself!!
