While most Lomographers like you and I are merely mild mannered men (and women!), some members of the community have a knack of going against the grain and doing things their way. These individuals are members of an elite Tipster task force, going boldly where no Lomographer has gone before. These brave men risk life, limb, and their precious LC-A’s just to make our Lomographic lives a bit better. For the LC-A’s birthday celebration, we’ve collected a few recent Tipsters that you can do with your LC-A and its kin!

Read on to see how he does the procedure!

Reason enough to let them become our latest LomoAmigos! Enjoy the interview with singer Vlad and check out their B&W photos, taken with a La Sardina Splendour.
