Our Community is overflowing with stunning macro shots but let's take this moment to zoom in on the best of them!
Clear close-up shots – that’s what we asked for on our last Hipshot Showdown and we certainly got exactly what we wanted! Nothing but photographs oozing with sharpness and crisp details flood the submissions pool. Here are the three best ones that truly caught our eyes:
There is nothing better than a photo shot at the perfect moment. Henri Cartier-Bresson's principle on "The Decisive Moment" is a principle that we should still follow to this day. A perfectly-timed photo creates impact, whether it's one of a friend jumping into the pool or a couple emerging from the ceremony on their wedding day. For this rumble, we want to see that breathtaking moment, shot at the perfect time. And you showed us what it's like to be on time.
Between Lomography and Skillshare there are a lot of talented people. Photographers from all corners of the globe have come together to share in exploring what Lomo stands for: a little bit of experimentation mixed with an eye for aesthetics. We've chosen winners from our SkillShare Rumble -- check out what these students shot!
The theme for this competition: water. Together with soulbottles, we asked for the best water-themed images from the community and received such captivating images as entries. It's time to announce the lucky winners of unique soulbottles and great prizes from Lomography!
In February, we hosted a Lomo'Instant Accessory Challenge in collaboration with GrabCAD. The idea of this competition was to stoke the creative ones and encourage them to be bold in experimenting with the accessories that come with Lomography's new instant camera.
We gave you the challenge to send us your best "PIN-UP" themed shot and boy, did you guys go to town! There were hundreds of glamorous and stunning photographs. We had the tricky task of narrowing it down to just 3 winners. Read on to see if you're the winner!
It is Film Photography Day, and we are counting the ways the activity fuels the imagination. One photographer likens it to the soulful sound of an LP. Another chases its risk or does it with a leap of faith. But the consensus is clear: Film photography keeps people on their toes for the best possible shot!
Done shooting and want your films to be processed? We can process your colour and black & white 35mm, 120 or 110 films! Development, prints and scans are also included. (Service availability depends on your markets)

Ladies and gentlemen, fellow Lomographers, the time is ripe for us to present you with a new mystery product. But we're not giving anything much away this time, just a few hints and clues to keep you on your toes.
With an expanded field of view and its ability to produce high quality images and capture minute detail, medium format photography has become the top choice of many photographers. Lomography is working hard to make sure that it keeps going with the continued production of medium format film and cameras. The current issue of German magazine FOTO HITS focuses on medium format photography. And with this rumble, we want to prove why medium format photography is king. Take your Diana F+, Holga 120, Lubitel 166+ or the new Lomo LC-A 120 and show us your best square shots!
Aside from being an immensely talented lomographer, what makes him a perfect LomoGuru is his burning desire to share his knowledge. The city where he lives is full of people who are interested in analog photography, but the lack of easy access to film and equipment poses a challenge for them to pursue their passion. To keep them motivated, Hugo organizes workshops and tours on different film photography techniques and DIY tricks. Let's give a loud round of applause to Hugo Pereira, better known in the community as zulupt, our LomoGuru from Marinha Grande, Portugal!
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?
