The second half of our banner year of 2010 sure showed no signs of slowing down! Here's a brief look back on the month of July and all of the most popular photos that we've been graced with during those 31 days!
The Dog days of July can never hamper the carefree spirit of a Lomographer! The sweltering heat of Summer is easily remedied by stripping off a few clothes, winding a fresh roll of film, and hitting the beach. The sun shining oh-so-bright also gives an ethereal glow to the skin that gives you perfect portraits!
The most popular photo for July was taken by fivedayforecast is one example of such a portrait. Featuring a shootout scene between him and a friend, the composition is simply perfect, not to mention the spot-on focus that certainly makes the subject pop right out all the more!
The photo was taken with his trusty Canon AE-1SLR with cross-processed Fuji Sensia 400 film. Here are the other notable snapshots back in July!

It’s been a long and cold winter but we’re finally getting back into the swing of things here in Chicago. We’ve got a great month of events and workshops coming up, so dust off those cameras that have been sitting around all winter and let’s take some pictures together!
Photography has been described as a time-stopping device, something that “freezes” an action. This moment on-pause is the most salient; all conversation about the picture will tend to pin down the beauty of that second. Celeste Ortiz’s photos make us think of something else. A sense of continuation.
Camo is one of the most popular fashion photographers from Colombia. His works have been published in many fashion magazines around the country, and last year he was in charge of shooting Colombia Moda, one of the biggest annual fashion shows in Latin America. But Camo has a very personal series of photos that were shot at his home in Bogotá.
Recently, we’ve been digging through all our LC-A 120 negatives from when we first started testing the new camera. During this search, we had our very own finding Vivian Maier moment when we unearthed a bunch of photos shot by the super-talented dopic whilst he was on vacation in Japan last year. We totally love these shots and couldn’t resist sharing them with you!
