Tag your sunshiny snapshots right! Don't let them get washed away by our Community's big wave of summer lomographs.
Aside from having a healthy film stash and a set of working cameras, waking up to a golden sunny day is something we lomographers look forward to. Having such a weather entails endless photoshoot possibilities, not to mention the guarantee that most of our snapshots will be drench in eye-popping and vibrant summery hues!
Summer is just within the reach for some of our fellow lomographers and we can already feel those beach and poolside shots flooding the Community! So, if you want your snapshots to not get lost and float on, make sure to put proper tags on them just like these three summer-theme lomographs we handpicked for this edition of Guess That Tag Rumble!
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 putting your guesses on the comment box below. Label your answers according to the photo number. (Example: 1. grass, water, reflection 2. street, red, bricks 3. islands, green, water)
The first Lomographer who can give three correct tags for any of the photos will receive 10 Piggies.
If ever nobody gets the right tags, a random rumble contestant will be chosen and will still receive said Piggies.

Have you ever tried going lens-less when taking a photo? Try shooting with ONDU Pinhole Cameras and see what it's like to take photos through a tiny pinhole. Check out these lovely shots taken by Lomographers; if you do have some ONDU pinhole photos of your own, upload and tag them accordingly so that we can see them!
Are you annoyed by Newton's rings that appear when you're scanning your Lomo'Instant shots? I am, so I came up with the idea to create something to ensure that the photos don't touch the glass, but aren't too far away from it either because of the sharpness.
Last week, I received the strangest thing through my letterbox. It was a postcard with this photograph on 1 side. The photo is of me sitting by the sea whilst I was on vacation last year. But I have literally no idea who took this shot – That’s why I came here, to ask for your help on my search for my mysterious photographer and to try and get to bottom of the riddle they wrote me. Please help me if you can!

You are probably already familiar with our German Petzval LomoAmigo Steffen Böttcher, aka Stilpirat.

An Argentinean writer and photographer living in the Pacific Northwest, Lorraine Healy is a long-time fan of plastic cameras and is the author of "Tricks With A Plastic Wonder," a manual for achieving better results with a Holga camera, available as an eBook from Amazon.com. In this article, Healy shares her experiences photographing in Cuba in early 2013.
Dora Kontha makes the familiar worthy of a tribute. She frames icy weather or glinting water so that it looks boundless, more than a spread of pretty blue. Analog photography, her medium of choice, makes these everyday sights as intimate as memory itself.
