Ever been caught off-guard by a Lomographer with a camera in hand and a sudden flash? Of course you have! Or maybe you have been at the right place at just the right time to snap an unexpecting friend or family member who didn’t even hear the shutter click?
Surprise! You’re not on Candid Camera, but you might as well be! Unguarded moments, happy accidents and candid shots are but some of the pretty surprises we encounter in our everyday Lomo-lives. These images show soul and character that you can never replicate in posed and staged photos. A heartfelt laugh is always better than a forced smile right?
For this rumble, we dare you to capture the spontaneity of these moments. Be ready with a blazing fast trigger finger and you just might win yourself Piggies. Goodluck!
Prize(s): 3 winners and 10 Piggies each

As film photographers, I'm sure you, too, have been asked why you still choose to shoot in this medium at least once - whether by a genuinely curious friend or family member, or a disbelieving acquaintance.
It's only been a few weeks since we launched the newest member of the LC-A family, yet the Internet has already been abuzz with much talk about it. We're thrilled to see all the coverage that photography and tech websites and blogs have given the LC-A 120, so we've rounded up some of them to share with you right here!
Probably each one of you has been annoyed with failed film. This is particularly annoying when you get the developed film back from the lab, but you get blanks because the film was not exposed. It's either the film transport didn't work, or you have not taken the lens cap off, etc. Read on and I'll show you an alternative to just throwing away the film: Simply use it as a color filter for your camera, with the La Sardina for example.
As the iconic LC-A celebrates its 30th birthday this month, we think it's only timely that we look back to Lomography's roots and shine the spotlight on the camera's birthplace, Saint Petersburg. If you haven't been there yourself, or if you have and simply wanted to be reminded of the beauty of the place, we've compiled a few select lomographs taken using no less than the LC-A by our community members!

The second trailer for "Star Wars:Episode VII - The Force Awakens" has the internet abuzz in the last last few hours. To join in on the fun, we scoured our archives and the cyberspace for some Star Wars treasures. Think Princess Leia and her double in that glorious gold costume, plus a photo of the new cast in roundtable discussion.
It's late October in Copenhagen and summer was well and truly behind us. With the nights drawing in, the chances of going out with one of my cameras was slim. All was not lost at this time of year, however, as it allowed me time to focus on my own personal music projects—I am a professional composer/musician and audio engineer at my own studio by day.
