Recently, I've been stuck on thinking about places to store my many cameras. I want them to be on display but I don't want them to be covered in dust either! Read on to find out how I fixed my problem with a fun DIY solution.
There have been so many different ideas on how to store our beloved cameras printed here in the Magazine. From bookcases, picture frames to shelves. Finally after searching in second hand furniture stores, I came across a display cabinet that I knew would be perfect. It would protect my cameras from all the dust but also allow my ever growing collection of 22+ cameras to be seen and be easily accessible! The only problem was the cabinet was in pretty bad shape. The wood was stained and the glass display pretty dirty. Then began the work…
I started off my cleaning the glass up and sanding down any rough edges on the wood. Once it was all clean I painted the cabinet completely white with primer to get ready to add the final colour. I knew this cabinet would be a main feature of the room so had to be a bold colour. I found the perfect shade of yellow,went to the store and had it specially made in a wood paint.
Here’s the final result! Let me know what you think.

My list of resolutions for 2015 consists of 12 projects, one for every month. In January, I tried some camera add-ons. If you want to add a bit of extra bling to your pictures, you can put something either in front of or behind your lens. In this case, I did both.
My name is Amber Valentine and I have a confession to make: I’m not really a photographer. I have a website full of photographs, a bookshelf full of cameras, film waiting to be developed, and a wall full of framed pictures I’ve taken. Even so, I don’t really consider myself a photographer per se. I think that Lomography is more about the experimentation and the fun of film than it is about the photography, and that experimentation is part of the reason I have embraced Lomography so.
Sometimes when taking pictures I get addressed by strangers either because of my cameras or because they don't want me to shoot something they claim they have responsibility for. But having the police on my back was a new experience.

What do you do when you don't have much time in a city like New York but you want to see everything, feel the vibe and be part of the community, even for a short time? Jump on a bike and enjoy what trains, buses and cabs can never give you: be part of the city. Take a camera with you to capture the moments and sights you don't want to forget.

Architectural photographer Christopher Payne documents America’s industrial heritage with his large format images. For his project "Asylum," he visited 70 abandoned psychiatric hospitals across to country between 2002 and 2008.
It's human nature to be restless and imaginative. The real may be interpreted as what one sees or how one sees something. For the daydreamer, a scene from nature transforms into a canvas. Suddenly a field makes room for chemical coloring, all those anachronistic streaks that somehow look right. Or else, those beautiful colors amplified or subdued to their most pictorial shades. All in the world of trial-and-process film photography.
