Meta what? We need your tags! Here's the how and the why.
There are literally thousands of Lomographs being uploaded to our Photos page but most of them are undocumented – meaning untagged. This poses as a problem because photos are unsearchable if there are no tags. Your photos won’t show up on tags,cameras, “films”/photos/films or locations page. Even more, they wont even show up on Photos but merely in your Homes. The community will only have a chance of seeing your work by clicking random photos, but that’s all they will be, random!
If you want others to marvel at your work – then we highly recommend that you make sure that you fill in the meta data. We recommend a minimum of 3 tags, the camera used, the film, and the location the photo was shot at. Please do note that from now on these will be a requirement for rumble entries as well.
Ever since light painting was invented, it inspired artists from all around the globe to magical creations that capture hidden movements and reinvent the world we live in. "Life is a fairy tale, stay wild little child!" is what they want to tell us. Bringing light to life became the next challenge for anyone rigged with a film camera and a creative mind.
Now, how can you take your analogue light paintings from the ordinary to the outstanding? After the carriage came the car, so we definitely need some spacy inventions to follow the old school light pen. So here it is, our new best friend: The Pixelstick!
