Then, now, and forever, photography is the improbable scientific capture of light onto cellulose or into pixel values, a technical endeavor that requires exactitude on the part of the photographer. Measuring, bouncing, reflecting, shading: all precision activities that are part of a photographer's arsenal.
But sometimes, you just want to get a little loose.
No matter how carefully planned a Lomo photograph might be, the following could occur: light leaks. Stray starbursts. Glowing ghosts, floating breezily through the background. Have we mentioned how charmed we are?
Lomography, the international headquarters for analogue photography, embraces the unexpected, the joyful jolt you get when your photograph develops into a bold, saturated surprise. Lomo's commitment to film means that you'll never know exactly what you shot until you process the photograph; creative experimentation is all the fun.

Perhaps your anxieties are internal? The fear of failing at that which is most dear to you? Or the terror of living with regrets that can never be remedied?
