A few days ago, our user mephisto19 uploaded his 50,000th Lomograph! None of our Lomohomes has that many pictures! Congratulations!
On December 8th mephisto19 uploaded his 50,000th Lomograph! Yes, all the zeroes behind the number “5” are supposed to be there! His Lomohome is the biggest we have ever seen.
Mephisto19 calculated how many pictures he had scanned so far and how many pictures he had uploaded in the past five years on a daily / monthly basis. A pretty epic calculation actually!
He started his Lomohome back in 2005 on the old lomography.com page. Only five years later, his home has grown from one to 50,000 pictures. So each month he uploaded around 781 pictures.This makes 26 Lomographs a day in 1488 albums. Each album contains 31 pictures. Besides all the upload and scanning work, mephisto19 also built 23 Lomowalls and has won 69 Awards! Divide this number through the five years he has been active here on Lomography and you will see that he has actually won one Award each month! And he has also shared his enthusiasm through 125 articles written by him in our online Magazine. Amazing!
Stephan has more than 20 cameras in his collection but the Lubitel 166+ remains his favorite because of its versatility as a medium format camera. Read on why Stephan Kaps, aka mephisto19, regards the Lubitel 166+ as the perfect camera for his multiple exposure projects, portraiture, and other personal photography experiments in this installment of Weapon of Choice!
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.
Every lomographer is aware of the Ten Golden Rules, the very essence of our “Don't Think, Just Shoot” philosophy. This set of guidelines tells us to throw away our inhibitions as photogarphers and have fun while taking pictures. Many of us take these rules by heart, but maybe not all of us take them as seriously as our community member pedrosattin, who has made these rules the focus of his personal project.
The shoutbox is always open for the community's honest opinions, surprising suggestions, and sweetest greetings. It is also an avenue for members from across different countries to dicuss and interact with one another. We'd like to commend these lomographers for keeping this humble space booming with entertaining conversations all year long. Congratulations to our top shoutbox users of 2014.
