Yes, we know its been a while since the last update regarding the LC-A Race. Rest assured we're doing the best we can, and here's an up-to-date list!
We’re sure you’ve all been wondering what’s happened with the results of our first ever Great LOMO LC-A Race (which celebrates the 25th anniversary of our beloved Russian companion, for those living under a rock or new shooters out there). Between the disruption caused by the eruption of Eyjafjallajokull (we dare you to pronounce it!) to the harrowing earthquakes of recent, the shipment of the LC-A kit back to us has been delayed. The logistics of coordinating between the hundred Lomographers all over the globe participating in the race has been a great challenge both for us in Lomography, as well as the teams themselves. We really do apologize over the delay in announcing the winners but we want to showcase all of the 10 teams’ modifications and doodled journals before we announce the big winner!
So as an update, here’s the list of the race’s Stage Ten shooters, who were tasked in shipping out the kit:
The rest of the teams have committed to submit their packages ASAP (as of last Friday, 14 May 2010) so we apologize for the judging delay! We are trying to get in touch with Asia Team 3 and it would be great if we could get any leads! Teammates, you know what to do!
It's been a while since we last heard from Hello America, the photographic storytelling platform created by Kristen Blanton and her partner, Matt Jozwiak. .Blanton and Jozwiak travel American roads together and document their tales strictly on film. The two have been very busy, and recently went on a road trip from Florida to California. Kristen shares the story behind their recent adventure.
Film Photography Day 2015 is fast approaching —do you have the film on hand to document the good times? We’re talking parties, dances, competitions, workshops, raffles, picnics and much, much more! If you don’t have film to last this gigantic 1 day festival of all things analogue, then now is the time to stock up! And even if you do, can you ever really have enough film? Nah, we don’t think so either.
As all you lomographers will know, since its re-inception we have been following the tracks of the Petzval Lens. Indeed, this bokeh-genius has been traveling far and wide, falling into the hands of many a photographer the world over. We decided to put together this little catalog of talented artists and their most enticing photographs, shot using the Petzval lens, so we can show you what wonders and mischief we have brought upon us. Come take a look at the outcome of the Petzval’s transnational journey.
Lomographer Carina, or landei in the community, regards the Sprocket Rocket as a "versatile plastic camera." For her, it doesn't only take great travel snapshots but makes an interesting conversation starter as well. In this interview, Carina expounds more on what makes the Sprocket Rocket her go-to camera.
You want your subject be the center of attention? Petzval lens photos are recognizable for sharpness and crispness in the centre, strong color saturation, wonderful swirly bokeh effect, artful vignettes and narrow depth of field that will make your subjects stand out!
This article is dedicated to Bruce Davidson, one of the most important American documentary photographers and a leading figure of the Magnum agency. Recalling his photos of the Worcester Fire Department in 1999, I'll show you my coverage of Como Fire Department's public demonstration, an annual event commemorating St. Barbara.
