It's Day 1 for our Rumble Week 2010! Here's your chance to show off your shots which could win you Piggies! To start things off, today's theme focuses on Romancing in Redscale - it's really easy as long as you're inspired with a stunning lady ... oooh yeah! A tribute to all the ladies in red!
“I’ve never seen you looking so gorgeous as you did tonight; I’ve never seen you shine so bright … you were amazing,” sang this heavily-browed dude who was smitten with an unnamed beauty that we only know as “Lady in Red”. We’re so inspired by this cheesy ditty that we decided to give you this redscale challenge! Perhaps you have once bathed the lady in your life in warm, sexy tones of red, orange, and yellow using the redscale technique, or the Lomography Redscale Film. It’s time to unveil your Lady in Red(scale) – moody, mysterious, passionate, and sexy – and get the chance to win some red-hot Piggies!

It's late October in Copenhagen and summer was well and truly behind us. With the nights drawing in, the chances of going out with one of my cameras was slim. All was not lost at this time of year, however, as it allowed me time to focus on my own personal music projects—I am a professional composer/musician and audio engineer at my own studio by day.
When I was a kid, one of my greatest joys was to go to the park. I especially loved playgrounds. It didn't matter how may other children there were, as long as I could have my turn to go on the slide and and sit on the swing. These days, enjoying one's childhood has become so different. Technology has stolen the interest of children in more physically demanding yet fun activities.
Every year, just a few weeks before summer, I dedicate a series of photos to the joy of living outdoors in this good season. One of the most common pleasures is taking one's socks and shoes off to feel the first warm rays of sun on our pale feet, which were prisoners inside shoes throughout the long winter season. So, it's time to take off your socks and shoes and relax barefoot! Where? Of course, on the walls surrounding the beautiful lake! Take a look!
Most, if not all, of the photographs in Keis Iguchi's LomoHome were printed using traditional darkroom processes. He likens film photography to using cassette tape and relies on his favorite combination of LC-A and Ferrania Solaris 800 in creating evocative images. In this interview, our Newcomer of the Week from Tokyo Japan shares more about his affinity for analog photography.
From the simple Vivitar 110 camera he received from his grandmother, Brett Wolff already accumulated close to almost a hundred cameras and accessories in his analog arsenal. Some of the cameras he treasured were even handed down by relatives and friends, making these more precious to him. Let's take a closer look at his camera collection.
Elvis Halilović turns chestnut wood into heirloom-worthy cameras known as Ondu. As a countdown to Pinhole Photography Day happening tomorrow, we show you how these pieces are shaped, sanded and assembled. All this effort for the love of a good picture!
The lives of artists are sometimes as phenomenally interesting as their work. Admirers even go as far as emulating their creative process, style and philosophies. Photographs of actors, writers and musicians in their element make this idolatry even more vivid.
