Please Be Mine: A Valentine's Wishlist Competition


Skipping heartbeats, sweaty palms, sleepless nights ... these symptoms tell us that you may be in-love. And we might be able to help!

Photo: monoflow and FTomballe

It’s Valentine’s Day once again. Le sigh. Cynics have gotten more cynical than ever, but you choose to remain hopeful. Lost in a tangle of your Lomographic love dreams, you fantasize about getting your hands onto one of those … those shiny, smooth items that make your forefinger twitch involuntarily. Your heart throbs for that Fisheye 2 Pink. Your palms sweat for that Diana+ 35mm Back. Your craving for the Diana Multi Pinhole Operator has gotten stronger. A stash of slide film keeps you tossing and turning during sleepless nights. Be still, your beating hearts! We might be able to help you satiate that longing …

The Mechanics:

  1. Show us the way to your heart – by submitting a photo as a proof of your undying love for Lomography and analogue photography!
  2. Leave a short testimonial in the comment box, as a tribute to the object of your affection!
  3. Head over to your Wishlist and add at least 5 items that you dearly want to love and hold.
  4. Each day, from February 9th – 12th, we will announce a winner of the “Most Wished For” item. Yes! Yes! Yes! It starts tomorrow so don’t delay one second. From tomorrow and until Friday – one lucky Lomographer who has the most wished for item of the day on their Wishlist will win it!
  5. Also there will be a special offer on that item for the day… you have to watch out for it!

So darlings, please keep tuned in to the blog to get updates on daily winners and the special offer happening on each day.

Have we told you lately that we love you? We want you to win what your analogue heart desires this Valentine’s. As for that cute girl you bumped into the other day or that hot guy you’ve been fancying since kindergarten, well let’s hope Cupid will find a way …

    Second best! My true valentine, the girl of my dreams (I am so lucky), is sharing a home with me, with much happiness. And since last October, a new love came to my life, and quite cunningly and quickly got the second place... Lomography keeps me off my work, meddles with my mind...

    Dear Analogue Photography,
    It began with a Fisheye 2 / And I got even more enamored of you /
    Though my eyes are amused by your digital brother /
    My heart will always belong to you...

    It started with Barney my purple Holga and my Love for Lomography just continues to grow into an obsession! Later came along Phylis the Fisheye 2, Laetitia the LC-A+, Laziza the Diana Mini and now I desire the pink fisheye 2 as it's just so sexy! Guess what I'll name that baby once I get my hands on one! :P

    Do you guys have any idea how hard it is for me to keep up with Lomography? I've been to any store that sells those amazing cameras in Turkey and when I'm abroad, I visit the gallery stores that are just so full of Lomo stuff!! And even for a 1 day trip, I found a lomo store in Zurich and begged my husband to get me a Lubitel for my birhtday! So you have to believe me when I say I'm addicted to lomography and I can't live without it, its my only Valentine!!!

You're not hot, you are beautiful, charming, and understanding. Without you, I know I'd be waking up to a dull day. Don't get sick of my love, i have my heart set for you til my last gasp of air. xoxo

    To my first love, "hallie" my CMY Holga.
    I've loved you from the day I set my eyes on you. Your psychedelic colours have shown me how beautiful life can be! This was the first photo you shot of me, and I love you muchly for the imperfections. The light leaks were simply to die for! Till death do us part.
    You've shown me the world of analogue photography, and have introduced your other friends to me ("Mimi" the Diana Mini, "Lynnica" the LCA+ and "Nina" the Pop9) I love you alll!
    XOXO, your valentine.

    Dear Lomo LC-A+,
    I've been always dreaming about you since the day I held onto you during the great lc-a race. You've brought the amazing analogue colors to me and it really make alot of difference from then on.. After these months, I felt that I can't go on with my life without you. Please give me a chance to have u in my heart and hands again. I will cherish you for eternally.

    Lomography - How do I love thee? Let me count the ways:
    1 for the glorious color of slide film
    2 for the deep and dark beauty of black and white film
    3 for the happy results of multiple exposures
    4 for the gift of creativity I hold in my eager hands
    These are but a few of my admirations for you, dear Lomography. More unfold as each new roll of film is developed!

    I wanted the Fisheye so badly, but couldn't buy it in Croatia. So, I was saving up and bought it in Vienna and since the first day i took it in my hands, my love for it grew every day more and more!! I never go anywhere without her ( yep, it's a her :). The photo I submitted is the first photo we made under the water, last summer. It's L'amour tout court (just plain love)!!!

    Where my own Lomo Love Story began. Lisbon 2007, I stumble upon an exciting looking shop in Bairro Alto whilst visiting my sister. Lomography? I'm intrigued. An hour of browsing later I am the proud owner of a Supersampler and I set off to capture the sights of the city. This picture is from the 1st roll of film I had developed. Since then I have been hooked, taking my Lomo wherever I go. It never leaves my side. I love you Lomo. Happy Valentines Day!

    film cameras are unpredictable - when you want them to work they wont and when you want them to do something wacky they are nice and normal...a bit like people! my photos are of mikee and his smena which i steal as much as possible and a DIY development on a broken camera. thats film love.

    my dearest darling LCA, It's been several months since you left and not a day has gone by that i havn't thought of you, that i havn't missed you and longed to spend just one more day mesmorised by your red light,entranced by your plastic lens and embraced in the glory of your vignettes, be mine this valentine and fill this LCA shaped hole in my heart.

    I don't have a picture to upload, and I don't expect to win. Heck with no photo i'm not competition to the rest. All I can say is that this site has opened my eyes to the lomography world. I live in Canada and no permission to order items from the internet I have no way to recieve any of these, especially in a small town that has no stores that supply such cameras; but this site keeps my hopes up that this year when i travel to New York in hopes to find the store location, that i'll be pleasently surprised with the merchandise.

    My best friend is the object of my affection. She is so sweet and (as you can see) incredibly beautiful, though she always denies it. Her name should be in the dictionary as the definition of the word friendship. She is truly the most wonderful girl I have ever known. :)
    The photo also shows the reason I was first attracted to Lomography and the Diana Mini: double exposures! I don't even own a digital camera anymore because I enjoy my Mini so much. I would love to have it's older sister!

    My love to lomo is like the sentences of this Crooked Fingers song (Sleep all sumer)
    Weary sun, sleep tonight, go crashing into the ocean
    Cut the line that ties the tide and moon, ancient and blue
    We take our empty hearts and fill them up with broken things
    To hang on humming wire like cheap lamps down a dead end street
    Close your weary eyes until the wintertime
    And every time we turn away it hits me like a tidal wave
    I would change for you but, babe, that doesn't mean I'm gonna be a better man
    Give the ocean what I took from you so one day you could find it in the sand
    And hold it in your hands again

    Lomography is one of my pure emotions. Sometimes I'm mad about something, sometimes happy, and sometimes I'm lomographical. Then everything around me turns lomographical too and my mood is being transmitted directly into my camera. Together we - me and my camera - endeavour to capture the moment and share it with the world.
    Yes, it's info from my LomoHome but my english is too bad to write something new ;)

    Analogue photography swept me off my feet in the past year. It began when I purchased a bizarre creature named 'Holga' that caught my attention one day. Since then I have been infatuated with the idea of analogue photography. But as a destitute student, money stands in the way of me and expanding my love to other mediums. I am hoping this Valentine's rumble will bless me with a camera to capture those precious moments that pass us by everyday.

    The romance of a deadbeat summer, captured perfectly by the Holga's dreamy light leaks and the haziness of a bright yellow flowers in full bloom created through double exposure. The unexpected panorama and frame overlap only strengthens my love for the dear Holga.

    I've been in love with film and the crazy unreplicateable effects it can give a picture. I'm broke because of this love which can be a problem. I'd love it oh so much more if girls I wrote love letters to actually read them. *Sigh* But my film can always get me though that problem. ;]

    My first was the fisheye one, gold. It was beautful and exciting and my love of lomography and analogue has continued to grow since. It reached out to the supersampler (pink dalek), then the oktomat, the actionsampler, the holga, and the colorsplash. My love is ever growing and yearns for more cameras and film!

I am happy to say that all 3 loves are still persevering, stronger than ever! Lomography has been with me to document my happy little world and these people/creatures that make it revolve so pleasantly. Lomography is ingrained in my future as well as my memories!

I have been taking pictures of him ever since he was a puppy, and since I raised him to be a photo dog, he is always ready for a shoot! Thank you, Lomography, for helping me find a new way to say "How cute!!!!!" every time I get my prints back.

    Oh, and... he won't pose for digital cameras :-P

    I just got my Diana Mini for Christmas and have fallen in love with lomography already. The first picture I submitted came from my first roll that was almost completely blank but this picture came out beautifully! I thought, how did I do that? I love the unexpectedness of the film, especially with the half shots from my Diana Mini. I still haven't gotten the hang of it, but I don't really want to. It's too fun to just see what happens. <3 Lomography

    Dear Diana,

    Thank you for showing me that this ordinary building that you pass by each and every summer day, is worth filming. And thank you for showing me there is a magic in all thats around you, every perpetual minute. There is art in losing control.

    I submitted a picture of myself, and photos of me are a rarity. No longer to my friends and fiance cringe at the thought of using my DSLR with a million buttons. The friend that took the picture of me bought me FIVE new lomo cameras as a wedding gift! Now when we're out bowling or goofing around, there will be pictures of me because now my friends LOVE taking photos that are simple and honest.

    Oh, Lomography! How I love thee in all your analog splendour! Thy incarnations so ensorcelling, the smell of your emulsions, the perfume of your leathered and plastic bodies, how beautiful your lenses, that grant me sight; me, who I was blind... To caress your shutters, winding cogs and focusing rings, such enchanting presence, every click of yours to heaven lets me rise. Thine gifts so pure, when I retrieve from your innermost the spark of love, exposed film. Then when Rodinal you grant me, I get drunk off your beauty, which fixer forever secures; even in monochrome you are so full of colours, cyan shine...
    I love thee, my Valentine, thus I grant you my name. Forbidden our love may be, but you are a true love of mine (just don't tell my wife)...
    Yours eternally,

    My girlfriend made a heart out of the wax packing of a little cheese called Babybel. I put it on the pool of our rental house in the south of France where we spent the holidays. In return for her heart I made this picture for her.

    It's also love for lomo because it has the vibrant colours, vignetting and feel that the authentic Lomo LC-A has.

    It was my lovely husband that introduced me to Lomo so only he has himself to blame for being a "Lomo widow" because I spend All my time devoted to the art of lomo! My first was a flashy yellow Supersampler many years ago, There's not much I haven't tried since but I would love to do a bit of 'swinging' try some Lubi love and capture it on eight frames for a film!!! OOh Analogue heaven.

    Not only did my lovely lady friend introduce me to my lovely red El Toro but over our years together she has encouraged an appreciation of the equine world... On holiday in Salzburg with Herself and my camera I snapped a couple of noble steeds dutifully awaiting their next instruction. They had to stay still in the cold evening long enough for me to paint this analogue treat. I thanked them, we parted ways and I have my Lomograph to remember them by.

  136. harkathon
    harkathon ·

    The SuperSampler film accident "Capillaries" in my gallery reperesents everything I love about Lomo. The effect is extreme but not pre-meditated, giving the image a brutal kind of honesty to its materials, which is for me one of Lomography's greatest strengths. An added bonus here is that the red effect teams up with the subject matter (spindly tree branches) to become a reminiscent illusion of something else entirely, namely the minute capillaries that pump blood to our own image catchers- our eyes. A Valentines reminder that it is not just our hearts that rely on the red stuff.

    I've never had a lomographic camera of my own before because I can't afford one but I've always been using film cameras and have tried to make lomo effects out of them, but it's just useless. Nothing like using a REAL lomo!

I love you all! Lomolovers or not, we are all committing to this world. :)

    Just like the beautiful, unquantifiable emotion we describe as love, lomography also has its share of quirks, idiosyncrasies and undefinable charms! These and the unmeasurable qualities of analogue photography have changed my eyes, my heart, my whole perspective and place on this planet. I am forever changed as a result of my first roll of kodak 120, taken on my Diana F+. I will, from now until the end of all time remain humbled, inspired & in deepest love of my quirky little camera!

    When I first knew you, you wouldn't listen to me.
    You wouldn't work with me and everything became a blur after how you treated me.
    I never gave up, and I tried my best to know you.
    Finally, you relented and I succeeded.
    We made many beautiful memories together.

    You fell sick one day and I couldn't stop worrying.
    I sent you to the hospital just so you could get better.
    I didn't care how much it took to cure you, I just want you by my side.
    Thank goodness you recovered. and now you're in my arms again.

    Felicia (my LC-A), don't ever leave me again because I'll never let you go.

    I met you in the fall of '05. Your name, Fisheye. You were encased in gold plastic and I knew right then and there...I had to have you. We were inseparable, I took you everywhere. Remember that weekend we went ice fishing upstate? Our love blossomed until one day you left me after our visit to my parents house. I haven't heard from you.

    It took me two years to get over you and in '08 i fell in love again. With Holga. She's different from you, she's bright and colourful and a little schizophrenic (she flashes different colours everyday, sometimes i can't keep up) and she makes me smile. =) Last week her light went out and I had to get her a companion...for both of us really. Hello Holga 120GN and ring flash - a striking duo who always draw compliments from passers by. My Holga's can rival any pro camera out there. The four of us are one big happy lomo family.

    My dear Holga's, I know with tape I can control you but sometimes I just have to let the light shine through. <3

Oh how my heart longs for a Panoramic Horizon Perfekt. Oh the endless possibilities we'd do together. An endless panorama of the island I live on. please lomo gods, i wish i wish i wish!!!
