What is "My Friend _______"? How is it different from "Behind the Scenes"? Actually, they're very similar, but "My Friend ______" is where **YOU** get to choose a friend from the Lomography community and interview them!
What is “My Friend _______”? How is it different from “Behind the Scenes”? Actually, they’re very similar, but “My Friend ______” is where YOU get to choose a friend from the Lomography community and interview them!
How does it work?
Since I started things off with Fookshit, he’ll pick a friend from the community to ask questions to.
Fookshit is then given 10 days to -
send his questions to chosen friend
collect answers, as well as 15 photos, from chosen friend
e-mail everything to firstname.lastname@example.org
I’ll post the Q&A on the blog. Fookshit’s friend, in turn, will then pick a friend from the community to interview … and the cycle goes on and on!
Just a few important reminders
Prepare 5 to 10 questions, mostly about photography or interesting trivia. No invasive or offensive questions, please. No too-personal questions – this covers inquiries regarding personal beliefs in religion, race, politics, sexuality, etc. We trust you on this one, okay? :)
Interviewees, prepare 10-15 photos only – at least 768px in width or height.
Interviewers are given 10 DAYS to do everything – from doing the interview to sending the collected answers & photos to email@example.com
Aside from being an immensely talented lomographer, what makes him a perfect LomoGuru is his burning desire to share his knowledge. The city where he lives is full of people who are interested in analog photography, but the lack of easy access to film and equipment poses a challenge for them to pursue their passion. To keep them motivated, Hugo organizes workshops and tours on different film photography techniques and DIY tricks. Let's give a loud round of applause to Hugo Pereira, better known in the community as zulupt, our LomoGuru from Marinha Grande, Portugal!
Brazil is an awesome country for traveling. There's so much to explore, each place very different from one another. It will definitely take a stretch of trips just to get to know this this South American pearl. I finished my copa tour last year in Marajó, the island of bulls—it just might be an eternal highlight for me.
It's no secret that the community is a treasure trove of film photography tips and techniques. And this artistic atmosphere is what exactly piqued Kellie Leming's interest. In this interview, our newcomer of the week from Nashville, Tennesse opens up about how the music community in her hometown inspires her to be positive and creative and what shooting on film means to her.
Capture the world and all its contours in vibrant, wide-angled photographs any time, any where! The LC-A 120 is an adventure of its own with lots of exciting functions to experiment with, like seamless long exposures or full ISO control. It's also super-fast and ultra-compact - perfect for your everyday. If you're worried about the Medium Format film, don't be! You are free to use any 120 Film you want and there are plenty to choose from. In fact, that's what makes this camera so versatile! Scroll through this gallery for a little taste of the glorious shots this nifty invention is capable of.
The Lomo LC-Wide creates an irresistible, saturated range of colors which is the perfect pairing for all you portrait connoisseurs out there. And with its brilliant 17mm Ultra Wide Angle Lens, you can get in on the action too! We loved how these proud portraits (and self-portraits) from our Online Community showed off the charming characteristics of the LC-Wide!
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!
We love multiple exposures because no matter what scenes you choose to combine, the end result is always spectacular! Double (or triple) yourself up in a self portrait, or experiment with different patterns and objects when you shoot with your Lomo'Instant Wide and watch your amazing creations develop before your eyes!
With a Lomo'Instant Camera and a Splitzer, you can get absolutely funny and creative images. I took it to the highest level and exposed my shots from 4 to 8 times! What you'll see next is an impressive mix of colors, textures, places and people captured in a very surreal way!
A self-portrait is a piece of a long narrative. It is a parcel of where you have been and what is precious to you. It is a silent version of a hello or an impactful sentence about the kind of photographer you are. Make your next statement count with a little help from your Lomography friends.
