Hello Lomographers! Looking forward to the weekend? It's almost time. But before we head out to two days of enjoyment and relaxation let's find out who today's winner is.
The I'm Set Free Rumble is slowly drawing to a close, Only a couple of days left until all the winners are known. But until then, meet phishfood from Singapore – she’s today’s winner! Congratulations for your cross-processed La Sardina shot.
Don’t forget you have until this Sunday to submit your images to the I'm Set Free Rumble. Just keep in mind that all meta-data must be filled in otherwise your submissions are invalid. Good Luck! We’ll be seeing you on Monday to announce the remaining 3 winners all at one go!
Today’s featured member, Herbert, gives the impression that he is interested in people as much as he loves cameras—and he has many vintage treasures. Even a casual snapshot of his has a story that suggests curiosity about the people he photographs.
Aside from his pictures, there is more to admire about Stephen Dowling. His extensive knowledge and insight into film photography and cameras are inspiring. Dowling, a BBC editor and analog photographer, tested the LC-A 120 camera and became a LomoAmigo last year. He has since rekindled ties with the Lomo LC-A 120, and brought it on a trip to Malta.
He will respectfully ask for a photo session. He does not outline why, and if you are shy, you will wonder what he has seen in you. He greets reluctance with understanding and a resounding yes with an equal amount of enthusiasm. When the day comes, he will treat you like a collaborator. And whenever he talks about the outcome—comely photos of what looks like your most confident self—he will always call you a muse.
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!
Yamato, a 25-year-old photographer based in Japan, is an active Instagram user with over 4,000 followers from all over the world. He also takes highly stylized photographs with the Petzval 85 Lens, giving his images a distinct and slightly moody look.
