For our Rip Curl Competition: Stage I – Whole Lotta Love contest, we asked our shooters to think of one thing and one thing only - Surfing is love and so is Lomography! Our friends over at Ripcurl sent over their votes and we're here to announce the winners!
You can never go wrong with the beach. The sheer fact that the 1st stage of our Ripcurl Competition received over 2000 submissions will attest to that fact. Whether you prefer to chill out alone and watch the day go by, or prefer to play Frisbee with your friends, the sun, surf and sand is truly one of a Lomographer’s most visited destinations.
For the First Stage of our competition – Whole Lotta Love!, Ripcurl has picked these 36 photos. Congratulations! But don’t get to complacent just yet. There are two other competitions that stand between you and a trip to the RipCurl Pro Bells Beach in April 2011. Check out the competition site for more info. But for now, the winners!
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!
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.
As many of you would already know, shooting under low light conditions requires more than a steady grip (or a tripod) if you're aiming for outstanding results. You must also have the proper gear, and that, of course, includes film. In this post, we list down five fast films that work their best under such conditions.
I traveled to Cartagena de Indias, Colombia in May 2015 with my twin sister. Our birthday was on the 31st, and for the last few years we've had a silent pact to try to spend our birthdays traveling as much as we could (and as long as we’re single!).
