Lomographers love pleasing their eyes in various ways possible. Be it by looking at fancy toy cameras or by viewing majestic film photographs.
These are amazing ways we all do. But sometimes, nothing beats looking at a very heavenly-like view shot in panoramic.
And in this version of The Lomography Hipshot Showdown we’d love to give thanks to Lomography’s twin panoramic beauties, the Lomography Horizon Perfekt and the Lomography Horizon Kompakt. So yes, we’d love to see the best views captured by your Perfekt or your Kompakt!
Only Lomographs qualified for the theme and are shot with the Lomography Horizon Perfekt or Kompakt will be qualified for the rumble.
Three winners will be selected and will receive 10 Piggies each. An award will also be pinned in their LomoHomes.
Upload limit: Two per user. Remember that Lomographs linked in the comment box aren’t considered as official entries, only those that are found in the Submissions area.
Lomograph’s meta data must be completed (camera, film, location & three tags.)
Can’t wait and be amazed from your Lomographs! Good luck! :)

It is Film Photography Day, and we are counting the ways the activity fuels the imagination. One photographer likens it to the soulful sound of an LP. Another chases its risk or does it with a leap of faith. But the consensus is clear: Film photography keeps people on their toes for the best possible shot.
For some, it marked their first foray into the wonderful world of analog photography. Others consider it a trusty, go-to camera despite having a massive camera collection which sometimes include some of the best gear there is. Whatever the case may be, toy cameras will always hold a special place in the hearts (and shelves) of analog photographers everywhere, quirks and all.
Colors may be amped to look unreal, like nothing of this world. Shots may be doubled, cross-processed, post-processed, mixed up into collages. The possibilities are infinite, yet some photographers still prefer black and white. Even in 2016, it is an ode to classic values of precision and balance. Light and shadow must be one pleasing dance. And just like in a well-choreographed piece, forms are obvious or playing coy. It all depends on how you're looking.

Photography is not only an act of documentation or communication, it is also a way of seeing the world. The camera opens our eyes and lets us see what lies behind the obvious, and we start looking at things as potential subjects of a photograph. Every leak of light unveils secrets that talented photographers turn into a piece of art. Li Hui is one of those gifted artists. We talked to her about her work and her sensitive photographs that picture a wonderful vulnerability.
At first, Skyler only visited the Lomography website to take a look at sample photographs taken with different point-and-shoot cameras. Seeing the immense focus given by the community to film photography and experimentation, two things she absolutely loves, she immediately signed up and started her own LomoHome. In this interview, she talks about her go-to camera, the difference between digital and film photography and more.
Armed with disposable cameras, a number of people affected by homelessness in London trooped out in the streets and captured life from their individual perspectives. That was in July; now, 13 photographs have been selected via public vote and will be featured on the upcoming calendar by Cafe Art, an initiative that "[showcases] artwork created by people affected by homelessness or are socially vulnerable."
