News

Back in April, we asked “What kind of film photographer are you?” and it became one of the most talked about stories, along with other interesting reads like Kodak, Please Don't Kill Slide Films, Ilford's Pinhole Kit, Pulitzer Prize Winning Photographs, The Descriptive Camera - Tell Me, Don't Show Me, Forever Young - Time Lapse Videos of Filmmaker's Children, Tweets from the Titanic, and shop deals like the Spring Film Treat!

Analogue Lifestyle

April saw the popularity of articles like Digital vs. Analogue Photos, Old School/Old's Cool Vintage Diana Cameras, The La Sardina Goes Candid, Quiet Conversations: Katie Cookes Pinhole Photos, More Color in Your Negatives, and Pinhole Papercams by Thomas Hudson Reeve. You also enjoyed articles such as 20 Terrific Lomography Tungsten Photos, My Dilemma While Packing for Travel, Vintage Street Scenes from Around the World, and Bring Your Camera to the Food Table!

Reviews

Did you hear about the new camera we launched in April? Yep, everybody raved about the LomoKino HD because it’s such an innovative camera! Other notable cams were the Exacta 135, Lomo Smena 8M, Aqua Pix underwater camera, and the Minolta Hi-Matic F. Don’t forget the camera review of the week! For film and accessories, there was trashing the flashgun with the Olympus Trip 35, Kodak Aerochrome Colored Infrared film, your choice film for portraits, and expired Kodak Verichrome Pan 125.

Tipster

Since it was spring break or summer for a lot of folks, there was time to get crafty. We created the Lomographer's Survival Kit and it became so popular, we had to write a sequel! Other inspired tips were The 10 Rules to Break in Photography, Taking Back Tipsters: La Sardina Tips, How To Take Double Exposures Using Images from Your Computer, Asking to Take People's Picture, How to Do C-41 at Home, Macro Close-up Lomography with DIY Lens, Portrait Tips: The Eyes, and When in Doubt, Double Expose Your Redscales.

Locations

And because the weather was so nice, a lot of Lomographers took trips everywhere and shared their vacation/staycation photos and stories of Cherry Blossoms in Taichung, The Eiffel Tower, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Atlantis Found in the Philippines, Sagrada Familia, Sharks Cove, Chinatown, and Gold Rush. Someone also wrote about their most memorable travel escapades and who let the dogs out!
