The LC-Wide Race: Lomographers are Meant to DIY

8

The DIY craze is all around the Lomography Community nowadays. We just can't really help working on our own when it comes to craft, eh?

But did you think that Lomographers just got into the DIY craze? If yes, then darling you got it wrong! For even long ago, Lomographers have been gaga over the thought of “doing-it-yourself.” So gaga that it was even a huge part of the LC-A Race!

Just like this diary from spendospend which was a part of the LC-A race. Spendospend was a racer for the Euro Team 1 and he sure did an awesome job with this DIY diary (a very important task of the race, I tell you!) Just look at those swift handwritings, cut boxes and photographs, and that lovely purple case! Just can’t help but adore it!

See Spendospend’s DIY Diary in this *link*

Here’s another one from racer dirklancer who was part of North America Team 1. Another creatively done journal which he, of course, did by himself! Check out photos from his journal below.

Check out dirklancer’s DIY diary *here*

Finally, let us not forget the packages from various LC-A race teams which all arrived beautifully done in DIY. Check out those LC-A’s and its adornments!

Browse more LC-A Race journal updates here.

Aren’t they just lovely! And it is such an awesome thing to know that they were done with creative hands and analogue lovin’ hearts! It makes us all excited for the upcoming *LC-Wide Race* and the DIY stuff that will result out of it! Hooray for DIY!

    Creative Vision, Personified:The Community's Most Creative Lomographers

    As Steve Jobs puts it, "creativity is just connecting things." It's all about tracing one's experiences and pushing the boundaries of what's already known to establish new things. The Lomography community is no stranger to these instances. In fact, the community is filled with brilliant minds who are always ready to refine existing techniques and look for innovative ways to express their visions and ideas. Here are just a few of the creative lomographers we've come to love over the years.

    Shake well and apply to fabric. Blot out excess using a paper towel. Create your design using Inkofilm or anything that casts a shadow. Expose to sunlight or bright UV light for 10-20 minutes or until color reaches full saturation. Machine wash using Inkowash to remove unexposed dye. Double your exposure time in overcast weather. Enjoy the "wow" result!

    So here’s what we’ve been working on: an all new lomography.com

    For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.

    A Very Special Portrait Lens

    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.

Much publicity surrounded the event and tons of footage and photos surfaced in all forms of media. Not until recently did we discover that one of our very own community members caught a glimpse of this monumental sports event, and even took photos with one of our favorite cameras.
