  • Alternative Couple Shots: Indeed it’s the season for love and romantic dates. But have you tried thinking out of the box and taking off-the-wall yet still charming couple photos? You could try a double-exposed photograph of two lovers on different continents, or maybe couple portraits taken against really bizarre backgrounds. Why not give it a try and share some tips on how you were able to pull off that unconventional romantic photo shoot?
  • Taking Tasteful Nudes: Where there’s love, there’s attraction. Where there’s attraction, there is passion, and perhaps even more. The human form is one of the most attractive subjects in photography, and the barely clothed ones are all the more attractive, but delicate and difficult to photograph. Nude photographs can be tastefully done, but not everyone is prepared to try it. Help the community by sharing valuable tips on shooting tasteful nudes and help make nude photography a more widely-accepted art form.
  • Lomography x Zenit Petzval Lens Tips: Batches of == Lomography x Zenit Petzval Lenses== have been delivered, so we’re wondering how you’ve been able to play around with it. It’s time to share those tips on making the most of this brass-clad optical sensation.
  • LomoChrome Purple Tips: Do you think you’ve mastered taking awesome and dreamy photos using the LomoChrome Purple films? Then, why don’t you share with us your tips and tricks for making the most out of this stunning film? A fellow Lomographer may be in need of your expertise to make sure he or she only gets the most stunning purple-drenched shots!
  • Lomo Experiments: We still want to hear more of your new and cool experiments – endeavors that we’ve never had before here in the Lomography Magazine. So go ahead and amaze all of us in the Community with your new Lomo Experiments!

    So here’s what we’ve been working on: an all new lomography.com

    For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.

  • Giles Clement: The Wayfaring Tintyper

    Giles Clement: The Wayfaring Tintyper

    Reminiscent of traveling photographers of the 19th century, Giles Clement tours through the country with his assistant, Zeiss (an Irish Terrier), offering everything from portrait sessions to wildly creative photographic projects for magazines and companies. And although his mode of transportation may have evolved with the times, his photographic method and gear have changed very little compared to the photographers of days past. Now, with over 3 years of tintyping experience under his belt and an impressive list of clients, he's carved a name out for himself as an accomplished tintyper and continues to spread his passion for this ages-old technique everywhere he goes.
