Brew up a cup of coffee or two and get comfy because you're going to be here a while. Let's all share photostories - our very best picture and the story behind them!
What do you consider to be your best Lomograph? Is it the first one you took, or something made entirely out of a serendipitous occasion? We would love to hear the tale behind your most prized photo – the thought process involved, the outside factors that led to the final shot… tell us everything!
Write your story together with the photo on your User Blog, and use Photoseries in the title. Make sure it’s at least 3 lines long but don’t skimp on the words – we want every sordid detail! After you’ve published on your User Blog, comment here and paste the link. For the Photoseries entry that wows us the most, a Konstruktor will be up for grabs! We will be giving away 10 Piggies as well to 5 runners up.

It is clear from the wild variety of photos in the website that Lomographers will do just about anything to get a good shot. Some swap rolls with friends overseas while others concoct unheard-of film soups. And then there are the masters of operations, the ones who spy and crouch their way to a share-worthy picture. This is one such story.

Common sense tells us that when the weather gets bitterly cold, it's best to stay inside and drink a cup of something warm. But when you have a primo lens like the Petzval, it's hard not to go on an adventure! Equipped with nerves of steel and a Petzval lens, these Lomographers around the globe bundled up and braved the conditions to capture the top 10 wintry (not so) hot spots.
Back in the 1990s, Gilbert Blecken was a big music fan and wrote for his own small music fanzine. He would interview bands in between sound checks and take photographs of them. He was never a professional photographer or worked for a company; he simply did it for his fanzine. Twenty years on, Gilbert’s photographs have matured into an amazing documentation of some of the biggest music icons of that era. We caught up with Gilbert to ask him about these photographs and the fascinating story behind them.

November is almost here and so is winter -- we might as well embrace both. This coming month we have the Lomo'Instant Launch Party (that everyone should attend because it's going to be FUN!) with a follow up workshop, a La Sardina light painting session, and a planned trip to the Winter Wonderland with the LC-A+ to get us in the mood for the holiday season!
It's Tipstember! For this month, we will be awarding 25 fat piggies to every tipster article that gets published on the Lomography Magazine.

If you don't have tricks up your sleeve, however, you can still contribute to the Magazine and let your voice be heard. Here are some suggestions.
