Wearing a mask can be very useful and it varies depending where we are: a mask of a superhero when you're with the one you'd want to protect, a cheerful kind of a mask for those days when you don't want anyone to see you crying or you can employ a mask of childishness for you and your camera!
I know there have been a couple of mask modifications posted for the Holga already but it’s such fun I can´t emphasize and encourage everyone out there enough to go and do their own masks right now!
It’s so simple and gives great results!
What you need
a transparent foil, for instance for overhead projectors
the 6×6 or 6×4.5 mask of your Holga
your Holga, of course
Draw a bunch of 6×6 (or 6×4.5) squares on the foil (you can use the mask and just draw around the outlines) with a permanent marker.
Learn from mistakes
Keep the foil clean or you´ll have hair and dust on your pictures (can be charming though!) Keep in mind that the mask will be reversed as you take the pic ;)
For sharper lines and masks you can print a graphic on the foil!
Summer has just begun and you need to be comfy as you shoot and soak up the sun. Make sure you're wearing the right stuff; put on an ultra-soft Lomography T-Shirt! The good news is that all Lomography T-Shirts are on sale until 22nd June, so you can hoard and wear one for every day of the week.
There are small pleasures and big pleasures. A small one, like eating a chocolate after lunch, the first day of summer after a cold spring or finally meeting that girl you see every day on your morning commute can be more satisfying than anything else. As for me, shooting live music shows with the Petzval Lens is one of those small pleasures.

What exactly do I feel while waiting for my Lomo'Instant photos to be developed? I have to say I get a mix of "Surprise me, dear Lomo!" but also some "Did I capture it as I wanted?" kind of thought. No matter the school of thought, with the Splitzer you can add so many cool effects to your photos you'll definitely embrace it!
Perhaps you’ve already had chance to try light painting, multiple exposures and long exposures with your Lomo’Instant, but what can you experiment with next? Well, that’s exactly the thought I had which led to giving this Tipster a go. I wanted to shoot Lomo’Instant photos which felt a bit “messier” than what I’m usually used to and to use a technique which would open up new possibilities with the kinds of images I could create with my favorite instant camera. Well, here I go!
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.
