Attention, bookworms! This week’s list is for you guys!
Much like attending concerts of our favorite musicians, getting the opportunity to listen as our favorite author himself or herself reads aloud passages from his or her own work can be a very exhilarating experience. And, still very much like it, it’s not all the time that we are lucky enough to personally attend readings and witness these on our own – may it be because of distance or existing in completely different ages, among many other reasons. So in this list, we’re presenting this compilation of five of the most influential authors who have recordings of themselves reading select passages from their respective works. Here we have *Truman Capote*, *Kurt Vonnegut*, *Sylvia Plath*, Frank O’Hara, and Flannery O’Connor!

With names often sounding rather out of the ordinary or even completely made up, it's always fascinating to hear the stories on how bands came up with theirs. In this week's list we're featuring five such acts who were inspired to name themselves after the works of their seniors in music.
If you'd be shooting in low light, at night, or in any other situation that would require a high speed film for best results, why don't you try the Lomography Color Negative 800 for 35mm cameras?

In this Today in History-slash-Top Five installment we've listed down the very first five films, all beloved influential in their own right, produced by The Walt Disney Company, which celebrates its 91st founding anniversary today!
Being a part of Fashion Week is not easy. You need to know high-profile personalities and e-mail tons of guys to be on the Fashion Week A-list. So when Christopher came to Lomography with the idea of being our official Fashion Week correspondent (and after showing us his stunning fashion portfolio), we were very excited to work with him.
They say two heads are better than one, and these amazing collaborations between well-known artists and from different genres prove that statement quite well. Have a look at this week's Top Five installment!
The LC-A 120 is set to be shipped out to their lucky owners 'round the holidays. You're probably itching to see more from this camera, so here are some of the latest sample shots to help you guys tide over until then!
This is a tutorial for the adventurous Lomographers, for those brave enough to do their own B&W and C-41 work but lacking the confidence to move onto E6. Fear no more! I am an enthusiastic home developer, just like the rest of you, I am not a chemical lab wizard! So if I can pull this off, so can the rest of you. Take a deep breath, relax, and read on. By the end of this article I hope you'll have mustered the courage to give it a go yourselves!
Probably each one of you has been annoyed with failed film. This is particularly annoying when you get the developed film back from the lab, but you get blanks because the film was not exposed. It's either the film transport didn't work, or you have not taken the lens cap off, etc. Read on and I'll show you an alternative to just throwing away the film: Simply use it as a color filter for your camera, with the La Sardina for example.
Before they became the big shot filmmakers that they are now, they were of course once students making their initial attempts at filmmaking. In this week's list, we're putting the spotlight on these early works by George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, Ridley Scott, and Roman Polanski!
