    these are all lovely, for some reason the JPG challenges and website and magazine too make me feel so inadequate about my own photo skill, I think I like the more amateur vibe of LSI, I can be a regular size fish in a regular size pond here.

    Not to sound like a party pooper, but being real here...
    I don't get what's so original about light writing,
    which is what it seems 75% of the submissions were.

  8. ouroborosx

    Well, the truth is there is nothing original about long-exposure either. The winners were not chosen based on the originality of their technique, as by the quality of their images.

    Then what's with all the hype such as "we saw so much creativity that it made our heads spin" and "possibly the most innovative challenge to date". And originality is a huge part of quality, not to mention the whole art of photography. Otherwise we'd just have a bunch of sunsets, light writing, and macros of flowers.

    Well, there was a lot of creativity in the submissions. You certainly can be creative using a technique that someone else has already used. I think it is very limited to say that unless someone does something that no one else has ever done that they're not being creative. If that was the case, we'd have had 2 or 3 submissions because there isn't much left in photography to do that no one else has ever done. It's more about craft and execution these days. No one said it was the most innovative challenge to date. I'm sorry if you don't agree with the choices that were made. It's impossible to make everyone happy all the time. I think all of the winners turned in excellent entries and are deserving to be recognized.
    Cheers.

    Jpg said it was the most innovative.
    I guess I'm just being stubborn.
    I actually really like the second runner-up,
    because it vaguely reminds me of a Minus the Bear- Planet of Ice photo shoot.
    Pretty sweet.

    Summer Hot Spots: Blaavand, Denmark (Part One)

    When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand located at the Danish west coast with my brothers and my parents. However, I didn't anymore when I grew up. But in 2012, we hit the road again. It was my first visit there in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In this article, I'm going to present to you the photos I took with my Nikon F-501 SLR.

    Registering Moments With the Lomo'Instant

    Some people say instant photos bring about a feeling of nostalgia. Although I often use the Lomo'Instant Camera with different crazy accessories such as the Splitzer and color gels, I have to agree there is something about it — dreamy vignettes maybe? — that always makes me want to go back in time and experience it all over again. In the name of analogue photography and good old memories, we passed by some classic spots in Vienna and took one shot after the other. Take a closer look at our gallery.

    A Compilation of Lomo'Instant Stories

    There are many possible reasons for taking pictures. It could be to document an event, to capture breathtaking scenery, to preserve a fond memory, or simply, to have a snapshot of someone close to your heart. Whatever the reason, there's almost always a story behind a picture, no matter how significant or trivial it may be. And for lomographers, nothing beats the feeling of having that story unfold in your hand, in the form of a print. If you want a quick keepsake from that treasured moment or a snapshot of that special someone though, you can have it instantly, through Lomo'Instant Stories!
