Special Feature: LomoPeople Callout

12

Think about it. What makes us pick up our camera on the way out the door? It´s because we may see something interesting out there isn’t it? The world is full of passing strangers doing weird and wonderful things as well as the friends and family we share our life with.

In fact, if you pause on this thought a little longer, you might start to wonder, where would Lomogrpahers be without the people we shoot? For some, maybe it’s a boyfriend we force into shots, for others, a friend that simply has to get used to being caught off guard by the click of a shutter every time they turn around (sound familiar?)

Then join us in celebrating LomoPeople! A new series now open for community submissions! Submit to the Analogue Lifestyle Section one prorate shot of a person you know and find to be interesting or inspiring and then tell the community why! The floor is wide open and we all know the Lomography community loves to meet new people.

Meet some former LomoPeople: Kris, Travis Meadore and David Mushegain

Submission Guidelines:

  • Please use the title LomoPeople: NAME (of the person you are featuring)
  • One analogue prorate shot of single person
  • Minimum Photo Dimensions: Submissions must be at least 768px in either width or height.
  • Minimum 50 words 200 words max
  • Accepted Submission get 10 Piggy Points!

    so if i get this straight... this is about the people who inspire us? even if it's not about their photos and mostly about why they inspire us?

    plainjane ·

    @atreyuthechild - ha sorry, that's portrait shot - "representation of a person, in which the face and its expression is predominant. The intent is to display the likeness, personality, and even the mood of the person"

    My First Lomo Affair: Paula412 and her Diana Mini

    Among many equally enticing choices, Paula picked the Diana Mini as her first Lomography camera because of its adorable size and cuteness. Although she now considers her trusty LC-A+ as her inseparable friend, she still misses having that distinct dreamy Diana Mini charm in her snapshots. Read on to find out more about Paula Gómez, or paula412 in our Community, and her First Lomo Affair with her Diana Mini!

    So here’s what we’ve been working on: an all new lomography.com

    For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.

    Transient Living: Armitage & McMillan in Denver, Colorado

    If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!

    Photo Stories: Portraits of Marie and Tim, 1977 by herbert-4

    As one of our most seasoned community members, herbert-4's collection of photos spans over decades of experience in film photography. Many of his albums contain images that we could only dream of capturing, from a time and generation that not many of us had the chance to be part of. Not surprisingly, each photo is entitled to its own story, and herbert-4 shares the story behind this one after the jump.

    Portraits, Lights, Instant Photos, and Weird Faces

    In New York City, winter has been harsh and long, the nights long and cold, and shooting outside is not fun anymore. So when the Lomo'Instant Boston Edition hit the shelves this week and the new Splitzer arrived at the Lomography Gallery Store New York, we decided to do a round of light painting portraits instead of sunny ones.

    Show Us Your Perfect Timing Winners Announcement!

    There is nothing better than a photo shot at the perfect moment. Henri Cartier-Bresson's principle on "The Decisive Moment" is a principle that we should still follow to this day. A perfectly-timed photo creates impact, whether it's one of a friend jumping into the pool or a couple emerging from the ceremony on their wedding day. For this rumble, we want to see that breathtaking moment, shot at the perfect time. And you showed us what it's like to be on time.

    The Lomo’Instant Splitzer: the Must-Have Slice and Dice Accessory!

    What exactly do I feel while waiting for my Lomo'Instant photos to be developed? I have to say I get a mix of "Surprise me, dear Lomo!" but also some "Did I capture it as I wanted?" kind of thought. No matter the school of thought, with the Splitzer you can add so many cool effects to your photos you'll definitely embrace it!

    Jonathon Keats to Unveil the Millennium Camera at the Arizona State University Art Museum

    You might remember experimental philosopher Jonathon Keats for the CenturyCamera, his ambitious project which involved installation of 100 ultra-long-exposure cameras in and around Berlin, Germany "to continuously document 100 years of municipal growth and decay for scrutiny and judgment by future generations" between 2014 and 2114. But today, Keats goes a step further and begins yet another groundbreaking and unprecedented project with the Millennium Camera.
