Hey everyone! We got your submissions and they're great. However, we would want to clarify a few things first and give you updates on how you can make it into our Top 10 shortlist!
Greetings, aspiring journalists! We’ve received and noted of your submissions to our Interview With a Photographer Series and frankly, we think they’re great! Our beat reporters are going through all of your entries as we speak as we’re slowly narrowing down the interviews that will make the cut and will be published. However, we do have a couple of points of clarification so that we’re all on the same page:
We want to see and hear the thoughts of people from all walks of photography life. They could be a world famous photographer like Annie Liebovitz, or the 80 year old staff photographer from your small hometown newspaper. You guys don’t have to limit yourselves to Lomographers.
My Friend... posts, although cool, aren’t exactly what we’re looking for. Think out of the box! If you see a Magnum photographer street-shooting, try to approach him and exchange a few words! You can also discuss the intricacies of B&W development with the professor in the university. You can track down one of the people from Polaroid and muse about the future of instant photography. The more out of this world, the better!
Don’t worry about about the fate of your “My Friend…” submissions though! We will be featuring all of your dialogues with your fellow Lomographers soon all by their glorious selves in a week long community driven extravaganza! It’s a great and perfect time to get to know all of your fellow Lomographers!
We hope that clears things a bit more clearly. If you do have more questions, just let us know! For now, you can check out again the guidelines for submission.
There's nothing more satisfying than taking fantastic photos with a camera that you built yourself. If you've always wanted to impress your friends with your mad DIY skills, pick up a Konstruktor Camera Kit and show them what you've got! It's also a cool way to get them into Lomography, because as you build the camera you'll discover how analogue photography works. Oh, and the Konstruktor takes gorgeous photos, too - check out the gallery and see what we mean!
Diana F+ is something of a wild child. It loves outré looks, multiple exposures and outlandish colors. But loaded with the right 120 film, it can show a mellow side that favors rule-of-thirds perfection and subdued coloring.
Really want to bring your film photos to life? We’re now offering totally analogue fine art prints in a host of large sizes and formats! Carefully enlarged from your negatives onto premium photographic paper by lab professionals, each picture is a unique piece of craftsmanship.
My friends and I teamed up with Photo Art Pro to spread analog love to the Zaporozhye community. Last month, we hosted a Yeti Scavenger Hunt and had a LomoKino camera as prize. We challenged participants to shoot a roll of film based on a checklist. It was tremendous fun!
In 1968, Elliott Landy went around town to photograph the glamor set, including the likes of Faye Dunaway, Marlene Dietrich and Lauren Bacall. His black and white shots are now part of a limited-edition book.
