    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.

  9. pantsuitugggh

    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.

  10. ouroborosx

    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.

    Twosday Tuesday: Fields of Tulips

    Here at Lomography, we always like looking at the creative and random photos submitted by our community members in our downtime. And, amusingly, we find that there are a lot of snapshots that bear a striking resemblance to one another – be it in the way they were composed or in idea – even though they were taken in different parts of the globe!

    Playing Detective: An Interview with Derek Woods, the Man Behind the Controversial True Detective Photo (NSFW)

    Derek Woods is an Los Angeles-based photographer who previously got involved in a controversy surrounding a photo that was used in the opening credits of the HBO TV series "True Detective." Coincidentally, Woods happens to be a member of the Lomo community, and it became vital to interview him regarding the issue. The interview was successful and was published in May last year. His current project, 365 of Lomography, will chronicle his day-to-day exploits with Lomography cameras. To jog your memory, and to re-acquaint you with Woods, we are republishing our interview with the controversial photographer. Please take note that some of the photos are NSFW.

    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.
