Judo is one of the most exciting Paralympic sports, as athletes go into combat and try to throw each other down onto the mat and take home the gold medal for their country. We took an LC-A+ along and documented Team GB in a match getting ready for the Paralympic Games in London. Get an insight into their word of blood, sweat and tears here...
The LomoWall at the Museum of London celebrates ‘Inspiring and Achieving in London 2012’ and features photos of Team GB Paralympic Athletes in training, alongside 30,000 photographs by you, the Lomography community! It is free to attend, and is in situ until January 2013
You want your subject be the center of attention? Petzval lens photos are recognizable for sharpness and crispness in the centre, strong color saturation, wonderful swirly bokeh effect, artful vignettes and narrow depth of field that will make your subjects stand out!
When asked to recall the moment they first became truly interested in photography, most photographers would remember the magical feeling of picking up a hand-me-down or secondhand camera, the thrill of shooting an entire roll through, and the elation upon seeing and holding their first ever set of photographs. Caleb Savage, however, had quite a unique experience. At 10 years old, he had his first taste of working in the darkroom making prints at Boy Scout camp, thereby beginning a more than a decade-long affinity with photography.
You read the right, folks! The 175 Years of Petzval Legacy Competition is officially extended. Discover the additional prizes awaiting our lucky winners and meet the esteemed Petzval photographers that comprise our jury.
By now the Lomography site is like a pail of candied purple. Our confection LomoChrome Purple has produced forests and flower beds the shade of lavender macarons. Hard to resist the fantasy! But lately we have noticed darker, late-afternoon-sun versions. And we like what we see.
