Today while working on a new way to show photos and locations on a map we found out that our "put on a map" feature has its six month anniversary. Well, we don't celebrate every feature, but in those six months 211,806 photos have been geotagged and we've made a short (very short) animation to show how the worldmap was filled.
Thanks to you for making this possible and let’s continue filling all the missing spots throughout the world – if you’ve uploaded some photos without geotags please add them in the Lab!
Also be assured we’ve heard your feedback on the nearby functionality in Photos and Magazine that some locations and photos are missing. Well, first off: this might appear so, but on the overview map we are only showing the top 200 spots (nearby spots are combined). More would take more time to load and slow down older computers. But we were not totally happy with this either, so we are now working on that feature again (and this video is a by-product of this process). Expect something (hopefully) cool coming up soon!
It's been a little while since we've shared the latest shots taken with the brand new LC-A 120 with you. But that just means we have a fantastic collection to show you today! Our testers from around the world have been shooting from the hip and with the heart to capture their daily lives with this medium format master. Skip past the jump to spy into some Lomographic lives!
Pssst, have you heard the latest? We're unveiling a brand new product very soon, and while we can't give you any strong clues right now, we hope that you can still try to guess what it is. In honor of this mystery product, we'd like to reiterate why Lomography's 10 Golden Rules is perfectly applicable to street photography.
Mark Scadding and William Paltridge form Double Exposure Photographic and are based in the South of England. They have used the Petzval lens extensively for portraiture and a few food photography shots. We were intrigued to know more about this creative duo and asked them about shooting with this exciting lens.

Most, if not all, of the photographs in Keis Iguchi's LomoHome were printed using traditional darkroom processes. He likens film photography to using cassette tape and relies on his favorite combination of LC-A and Ferrania Solaris 800 in creating evocative images. In this interview, our Newcomer of the Week from Tokyo Japan shares more about his affinity for analog photography.
