The heat wave is definitely getting worse but our Lomographers have braved the scorching hot weather to deliver us photos of keeping cool with our Heat Wave Rumble. We crown the sizzling hot winners after the jump.
It’s scorching hot out there with temperatures rising to unprecedented levels! If you have a pool in your backyard, consider yourself lucky as you can cool off any time you want! For us regular folk, we have to get creative. Bathing in ice in the bath tub, eating popsicles and drinking ice-cold beer are just some of the ideas we got from you guys in our Heat Wave Rumble. One entry shone over the rest though, and he gets lucky and wins our Diana F+ Lens Flare Bundle Starter! We also have 5 cool runners-up who’ll get 30 roasted Piggies each. Enjoy!
Common sense tells us that when the weather gets bitterly cold, it's best to stay inside and drink a cup of something warm. But when you have a primo lens like the Petzval, it's hard not to go on an adventure! Equipped with nerves of steel and a Petzval lens, these Lomographers around the globe bundled up and braved the conditions to capture the top 10 wintry (not so) hot spots.
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!
"Love your camera" is Marika's first rule when it comes to shooting film. Her passion for collecting gear stemmed from a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of testing a variety of film cameras for her friend's shop. Let's all welcome our newcomer of the week from Prague, Czech Republic, analogvision!
Check out these snapshots from the community, taken with various cameras equipped with the Diana Flash. While you're at it, find out how you can earn piggies and have your own photos be featured on the Online Shop!
Abandoned locations are often surrounded by an air of mystery and beauty that beckons the adventurous ones to venture into them and have a look around. A few years ago, hodachrome and his friends had the opportunity to visit one such facility in Fukushima.
