Guess That Tag! Rumble: Better in Black and White


Many of us may prefer experimenting and shooting with wild and whacked-out colors. But, if you want to give your photographs a timeless and mysterious touch, going black and white is the best way to go!

I bet we can all agree that there’s this certain kind of atmosphere that can only be render by shooting in black and white. Stripping the world of colors can offer a quick breather from the hustle and bustle of our fast-paced lives.

So, for this edition of Guess That Tag!, we are giving the spotlight to these three lovely black and white photographs. You can marvel at their classic beauty or put your three guesses on!





*Above are three Lomographs in which you have to guess three (3) tags for each. Be crazy or be safe, just give us three tags you think each Lomograph has!

*Join by commenting on this rumble according to the photo number. (Example: 1. grid, lines, line 2. blur, skirt, shoe 3. drama, cry, lady)

*The first Lomographer who can give three correct tags for each photo will receive 10 Piggies straight into their LomoHomes!

*If ever nobody gets the right tags, a random rumble contestant will be chosen and will still receive said Piggies.

Ready? Start guessing now!

    Black and White Photography: The Forms of the World

    Colors may be amped to look unreal, like nothing of this world. Shots may be doubled, cross-processed, post-processed, mixed up into collages. The possibilities are infinite, yet some photographers still prefer black and white. Even in 2016, it is an ode to classic values of precision and balance. Light and shadow must be one pleasing dance. And just like in a well-choreographed piece, forms are obvious or playing coy. It all depends on how you're looking.

    Angela Izzo on Shooting with the Diana Mini, Photographing Musicians, and Then Some

    While many of us can only dream of working with musicians and photographing them, Angela Izzo's job entails exactly that. Apparently, this is a fulfillment of her own dream that she had when she was younger. In this interview, Izzo talks about her beginnings which, of course, included going to as many shows and festivals as she possibly can; some of her most memorable on-the-job-experiences with the likes of The Doors, Lykke Li, Jack White, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and Chris Robinson Brotherhood; her inspirations and other interests; and her love for film photography and Diana Mini. And to those looking into fulfilling their own dreams of working in the same industry, Izzo also shares helpful advice based on her own experiences.

    LomoAmigo: Cat Stevens

    London based photographer Cat Stevens uses the softer, more subtle aesthetics of film photography throughout her work. Her shoots consist of the familiar light leaks and washed out tones that most film shooters will be familiar with. She has photographed artists such as Deerhunter, PJ Harvey and recently took a series of sun drenched beach shots which adorned The Charlatans' last album cover titled "Modern Nature."
