Fill the Map!

8

With the introduction of the new Lomolocations map here in the magazine this section has been brought to a new level. There are already 1040 locations online and more being added daily. We believe that the map allows for a new level of navigation, meant to make it easier for you to find a review of choice.

With the introduction of the new Lomolocations map here in the magazine this section has been brought to a new level. There are already 1040 locations online and more being added daily. We believe that the map allows for a new level of navigation, meant to make it easier for you to find a review of choice.

1040 locations is a lot, but we would like there to be more! There are several empty spaces in particular out there, and we are sure that some of you have either been there, perhaps even live there now, while others are just wishing to see this part of the world. Share your best moments with us all!

In order to make you a little bit more excited about this new project, we have changed the prize. The three users that submit the most number of relevant locations (see list below) will receive an additional bonus of 10 piggies. On top of that, they will receive an award on their homes “Lomotraveler.” (For this competition, please submit your entries as you would another location)

Time Until Monday the 8th of September

Submission limit No limit

Locations

Eastern Europe:
Albania, Bosnia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Macedonia, Moldavia, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia

American States:
Colorado, Dakotas, Kansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Minnesota, Montana

China:
Any non coastal areas!

As we are sure that we will receive plenty of reviews from you, we would like to use this opportunity to publish our new guidelines. The reason that we are doing this is that we have in the past received reviews that you have spent time on to write, yet we have not been able to publish since they lacked something. With these guidelines, we hope that we can reduce the time from when you submit an entry until the time we publish it, and hence also the amount of submissions that we can not use.

We have decided to divide locations into two main sections, those which focus on the historical and cultural aspects of a location, and those that focus more on your personal experiences. As the types slightly differ, so do the guidelines. Please have a look at them here, they are meant to help you!

We would also like to announce that in the future, published entries will receive 5 piggy points.

We would also like to take this opportunity to remind you that submissions with 1 picture or 1 line of text do not suffice to get published.

Much Love

    I've been to almost all of those eastern Europe countries but unfortunately don't have that many relevant photos to submit to any particular location...

    Anyway, I'll get down to business and fill the map with other locations (not in the list). Just now about 10 locations popped into my head. I better get started right away =)

He brought out the plush side of Kodachrome and surprised the American public with sexy humor. The credit is long overdue, but a recent book pays tribute to Helburn's vibrant career.

    Geoffrey Berliner On Photographic Processes, Old and New

    Geoffrey Berliner is the Executive Director of the Penumbra Foundation and the Center for Alternative Photography in New York. As the head of an organization whose goals are 'to be a comprehensive resource for photographers at any level' and 'to continue to publicize the impact photography has had and continues to have on culture, history and the arts,' his exposure to photographic materials -from 19th century gems to modern equipment- is so extensive, one cannot even begin to fathom just how much knowledge and experience this man has acquired. His collection of over 2000 vintage Petzval lenses is unparalleled, and the object of envy of both traditional and contemporary photographers. Although such lenses are reputed to require a certain level of skill to be used, Berliner seems to manage them with so much ease, producing splendid results.

    Glastonbury As Seen Through the New Petzval 85 Lens by Taio Konishi

    The Glastonbury Festival is arguably one of the most anticipated and renowned music festivals in the world. It is a joy to be able to watch it, and a privilege to capture scenes on and off stage. Apart from creating beautiful portraits, the Petzval Lens is great for adding an albeit subtle drama to the already spectacular scenes of music festivals. Japanese photographer Taio Konishi photographed this year's Glastonbury with a Petzval 85mm Lens, and here are some of the photos. He also talks about his Petzval-meets-Glastonbury experience in this exclusive.

    Lantern Slides From the 'Psychic Photography From a New Angle' Series

    Mysterious apparitions and other inexplicable phenomena on film, or generally speaking, for that matter, are as highly debated topics today as they were many decades ago. In 1934, a certain Mr. C.P. MacCarthy of 15 Wilkinson Street, Sheffield held a lecture at 76 Clarkehouse Road located in the same city to "demonstrate under test conditions Fake Psychic Photography" before an invited committee. MacCarthy's demonstration was accompanied by a series of photographs titled "Psychic Photography From a New Angle."
