When I was a student at the Fine Arts Academy in Perugia, I fell in love with stenopeic photography and started gathering every kind of document I could about it and its technical evolution. I asked for some information from my photography teacher, Antonio Todini - He suggested that I search "Pinhole Photography" on the internet and as a way of remembering things said: “Pinhole, it sounds like pinolo (pine nut, in Italian), but with the 'H' after the 'N' and the final 'E'”. Since that moment the little nut planted itself in my mind and grew in the form of a challenge to make my very own pine nut pinhole camera!
For years, I have gone from here to there on foot, with a camera on my hand, collecting stories of everyday happenstance. Here are some lessons the streets have taught me.
This tipster is about a technique which I call "High Quantity Multi Exposure" or short HQME. I assume that people have already done something like that before me but I couldn't find any information about it.
Ever thought of living in your own planet? It is now easier to have your own planet with the Lomography Spinner 360º and a little bit of photoshop tricks.

We all know the Lomography rule: Don't think! I found a way to switch off the brain completely. It's very easy! All you have to do is drink, drink, drink and drink some more. These are my experiences with shit-faced-photography. Cheers!

The process of making Lomographs is just like painting itself. We choose what to shoot with our cameras, as well as the painter decides on what scene he'll make with his brush. Both Lomographer and painter are two artists that are aiming for one similar thing - to make beautiful pictures. And for this week, see how our Tipster chose to paint with light, literally.
Nagata Takeshi and Monno Kazue - the creative forces behind the PikaPika project and they are here to share their thoughts about the art of light painting and its future with us!
