Facebook Timeline - Perfect for Horizon Shots

5

A couple of weeks ago Facebook unveiled their new feature called "Timeline". With this feature Facebook is turning your profile into an interactive resumé.

Some might say this is a new way to collect more personal data from the Facebook users, which might be true. But I don‘t want to discuss this here in the article.

I want to talk about something else. I have to admit the first thing that came up to my mind was not a privacy concern. The first thing that came to my mind was: The cover photo is the perfect place to showcase some of my favorite Horizon shots.

Horizon shots – perfect for the new Facebook Timeline

And I was not the only LomoNerd that had this idea while seeing the dimensions of the new design. Lots of lucky Horizon owners and friends on Facebook used this place to upload their favorite Horizon shots. But as cool as it might be, I think our Lomowall feature at Lomography.com is way better and gives you more creative freedom.

What do you think about the new design and which is better the Facebook Coverphoto or our Lomowall feature?

    If you like Lomowalls that much, Print Screen is your best buddy! Just make a screenshot of your lomowalls and voilá, there's your new cover photo

    There is nothing than a photo shot at the perfect moment. Henri Cartier Bresson's principle on "The Decisive Moment" is a principle that we should still follow to this day. A perfectly-timed photo creates impact, whether it's one of a friend jumping into the pool or a couple emerging from the ceremony on their wedding day. For this rumble, we want to see that breathtaking moment, shot at the perfect time.

Here are a few tips from what I’ve discovered from playing with the camera so far (and a couple of tips I want to try out in future)!

    Are you ready for an adrenaline rush? A little while ago, we teamed up with the snowboard and film-making collective Yougofirst and gave them a LomoKino and some film rolls to play with. After a season of crazy riding, jumps and tricks, they have finished their latest movie HETEROTOPIA which features footage shot with our 35mm movie-maker. We had the chance to catch up with Vid and Matic from the collective about the new movie and their experiences shooting analogue on the slopes. It's also our pleasure to showcase the movie here!
