Along with our La Sardina DIY camera we’d like to present several DIY projects to inspire you. This project is a sweet and sour tutorial on how to enjoy a lemon with a candy stick straw by Jodi. Have fun!
But what has this to do with the competitions section? Well, we’d like to try something new – complete the steps, then take one of your beloved analogue cameras (or the new La Sardina DIY camera), document the results and submit the photos once they are developed here. Please don’t upload any digital photos, don’t submit anything unrelated to this project (as much as we’d like to see your tea collection at the back of the cupboard, this is not the place) and watch out, the limit is two photos.
This is for fun and we’d like to present more projects like this in the future. See them all under diy.lomography.com. Let us know in the comments what you think of this and how you like this very project. We are looking forward to hearing from you!
If you love to craft or design things yourself, you can draw a lot of inspiration from these two creative women. You may have already stumbled upon Sophie and Catharina on the web, be it at hello handmade, workisnotajob, superwork, supercraft or their youngest project, lemon books.

Photos shot with a New Petzval lens are immediately recognizable for their super-sharp focus areas and wonderful swirly bokeh effect. Each New Petzval lens is crafted from brass (just like the original Petzval lens) and features premium glass optics. Together with Lomography, the lenses have been designed and constructed by a team of optics specialists at the Zenit factory in Russia. Zenit are master lens manufacturers and have the skill to build the Petzval lens for use with today’s SLR cameras.
By now most of you would have heard of Lomokev, one of the UK's most prolific film photographers. Based in Brighton, Lomokev loves to shoot with the trusty LC-A and his work has been featured in numerous publications and projects.

I placed a pre-order for this film maybe 6 or 7 months ago. I'll let you guess how ecxited I was when I received the package last week. I was like a kid in a candy store so I decided to spend the next Sunday in a park I have never been before. The Park Monceau in Paris. The weather was perfect for a first try with this purple gem!
Adi, Ekeu, and I did a lomowalk around downtown Bandung last Saturday, the beginning of November. We planned to use our Lubitel cameras with only one roll of film each. We were inspired by the One Roll of Film Project by four Tokyo-based photographers with their Hasselblad cameras. This is about the one roll of film I shot with the Lubitel 166U, which made me love shooting in medium format even more.

I don't know many bands from Russia but one that I've been admiring for years is Motorama from Rostov-on-Don. With catchy tunes and adorable videos, they took my heart by storm and that of fans from all over the world. Because of their Russian origin, Motorama is of course familiar with Lomo products. Reason enough to let them become our latest LomoAmigos! Enjoy the interview with singer Vlad and check out their B&W photos, taken with a La Sardina Splendour.
