Lomography Magazine Wants Your Tipsters!

The new year has just begun but it's never too early to start learning some new film photography tricks, right? Every lomographer out there is on the lookout for tipsters hot off the press, so if you have some valuable knowledge and tips and secrets, why don't you share them with us and submit some tipsters!

We’re constantly looking for the freshest and most helpful film photography tips and tricks out there, and why not — everyone wants to get better at their craft, and in most occasions, we lomographers are more than happy to share these secrets! We bet you have a trick or two up your sleeve, so why don’t you tell us how we can snap better photos, get better at composition, do more with our films, use our film cameras to their full potential, and many other possibly great tips!

Remember, each tipster that you submit to the magazine that gets published earns you 5 Piggies, 10 Piggies for Requested Posts, 30 Piggies if it’s an in-depth Tutorial, and as much as 40 Piggies if it’s a Tutorial that matches a requested post! For this month, we requested tipsters covering the following topics:

  • Belair tips: So, you have a new and gorgeous Belar X 6-12, and you must have been having fun playing around with it! Why don’t you share with us would-be Belair owners some tips and tricks when shooting with Lomography’s newest medium format offering?
  • Long exposure tips: Calling all long exposure experts! We want to learn your take on this photographic technique. Whether it’s night photography, light paintings, or star trails (we’re especially curious about this!), show us, tell us your long exposure tips!
  • Scanning tips for 110 films: While many have taken interest in shooting 110 film again with the release of Lomography’s 110 films and cameras, perhaps they also need help with scanning their teeny film strips. Maybe you have a tip or two for scanning 110 films with or without using the Digitaliza 110? Send them right in!

So, what are you waiting for? Start writing your tipsters and submit them — we’ll be waiting!

    Object of My Affection: Subbuteo

    In my early adolescence, I liked to play table football. For my 12th birthday, my parents gifted me with a wonderful Subbuteo table soccer game set that I had wished for many months! This was my favorite toy until I discovered other interesting hobbies, like ham radio and electronics. So after some years, I gave away this game to other kids. I always remembered this game with pleasure and a hint of nostalgia.
