It's time to start the Spring Into Shape Campaign, and that means it's time to get busy! We've got a whole week of formidable challenges ahead of us, so better start warming up! Let's get started!
Day One: Upload Aerobics – Upload 50 Photos
This challenge runs from 12 PM CET April 29th until 12 PM CET April 30th
For our first exercise, we’ll start simple. All you have to do is upload 50 or more photos, and you’ll get 4 Piggies. Sounds simple, but you have to remember that this is not just a race — it’s a marathon of analogue activities! We don’t want you guys to get winded so early in the game, do we? We’ve got the whole week ahead of us! If you’re sitting on plenty of photos in your computer at home, it’s time to step your game up! If you aren’t able to make this challenge, have no fear, we’ll be back with another task for you to try! This challenge ends on April 30th, 12 PM CET.
Just make sure the photos you upload are public. You can do this by ticking the box next to ‘Everyone can see the photos you upload’ in the upload section of the Lab!

Oh, and the Konstruktor takes gorgeous photos, too - check out the gallery and see what we mean!

Canadian-born Ian Taylor is a full-time photographer specializing in kids and development work. It all started when his five siblings started having children at the same time he was into photography. This passion then spiraled into something amazing, and now Ian works primarily with kids, shooting them when they are in their purest form. Based in Asia, Ian has agreed to share this amazing series of photos he shot with his Petzval Art Lens in Cambodia and Thailand. He also shared with us some of his insights and views on photography.
There is nothing better than a photo shot at the perfect moment. Henri Cartier-Bresson's principle on "The Decisive Moment" is a principle that we should still follow to this day. A perfectly-timed photo creates impact, whether it's one of a friend jumping into the pool or a couple emerging from the ceremony on their wedding day. For this rumble, we want to see that breathtaking moment, shot at the perfect time. And you showed us what it's like to be on time.
Shh! We've got a secret matter at hand, and it's coming at you at the speed of light!
We're being as mysterious as the Cosmos about our new out-of-this world product, constantly orbiting around our big reveal. But the eclipse will pass and soon the stars will align. Until then, there must be some questions floating around in the universe, right? Well, there's no need to look to the stars to find your answer! Stay on Lomography's wavelength as we kick into hyperdrive. Let your imagination skyrocket and see if you can decipher our otherworldly clues!
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.
