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!
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!
Barbora Smoláková's first brush with lomography started with a Diana F+ Deluxe Kit. With its variety of accessories, the Diana F+ allowed her to explore the endless possibilities of creative photography. In this interview, she opens up about her experience shooting with this versatile camera and how it helped her appreciate the beauty of ordinary things.
Mary Robinson has shown a natural talent for photography even at such an early age. Even when she was first featured on the Magazine in 2011, her images already made an impression on the Lomography Community. Her work has evolved in the span of four years, but its quaint beauty remains.
A hat is in the position to be noticed before any other item of clothing. Its shape and texture can immediately call to mind cultural associations. A cloche is to 1920s fashion as a picture hat is to the 1900s. The wide-brimmed or fur-lined variety, on the other hand, is more functional for tribes.
As a wildlife cameraman and photographer, Ian Llewellyn has worked on a number of television projects. The UK-based lensman breaks free from the strict confines of his profession by engaging in monochrome photography. His personal work is a plethora of abstract and experimental imagery, created in a style distinctly his own. Llewellyn is an ardent user of a Leica Monochrom camera, on which he mounted the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Lens, producing the most imaginative, phantasmic results.
