This week's featured Analogue Lifestyle article is "My First Roll of Lomography Redscale XR 50-200 35mm" by alaitzoleaga from Bilbao, Spain who thought her thespian friends made for perfect subjects with this sometimes-sunny, sometimes-saturated film!
I recently received some Lomography Redscale XR 50-200 films from the online shop and I wanted to try them. Suddenly, an idea came to my mind: who could be better subjects than my theater mates? Furthermore, our play was about the Spanish Civil War in 1937, I thought it was the perfect period for this film.
Lomography is not an interference in your life, but part of it. That’s the fourth Golden Rule of Lomography. We chose this article by community member @alaitzoleaga because she embodied just that with her first shot at redscale. Being open-minded and adventurous with analogue photography—even if it’s just trying a new kind of film—can lead to some surprisingly perfect shots, such as this vintage themed roll featuring her old-time-y looking theatre ensemble!
Congratulations on winning 10 Piggies!

Reminiscent of traveling photographers of the 19th century, Giles Clement tours through the country with his assistant, Zeiss (an Irish Terrier), offering everything from portrait sessions to wildly creative photographic projects for magazines and companies. And although his mode of transportation may have evolved with the times, his photographic method and gear have changed very little compared to the photographers of days past. Now, with over 3 years of tintyping experience under his belt and an impressive list of clients, he's carved a name out for himself as an accomplished tintyper and continues to spread his passion for this ages-old technique everywhere he goes.
Anna Hollond got her fist camera on her 10th birthday, and she hasn't stopped carrying a camera ever since. About a year ago, she sought to document her memories for her journal but didn't want to do so digitally, and got her first Lomography camera. Next thing she knew, she had a trove of instant cameras, as well as a knack for instant photography.
Autochrome was one of the first strides toward color photography. The combination of potato starch grains and silver bromide produces a cloudy cast that makes buildings like Villa Bonnier look even more intriguing.
It's every aspiring photographer's dream: turn one's hobby into a career; quit the part-time job and instead get commissioned to work on your own photography projects. Kevin Biberbach, a student from Aachen in Germany, made it. As a result of EVRY DAY, a 365-day project that has attracted plenty of attention online, he has been working on a variety of assignments such as wedding shoots and family and couple pictorials.
