New shooters are the lifeblood of Lomography, just like seeds slowly blooming into a beautiful flower. And judging by these photos, this month's newbies certainly show some potential!
New members of the Lomography community are filled to the brim with inspiration, as they remind us of when we first started shooting, together with their unmatched zeal for all things analogue. For January, over 5,000 new members have signed up so please join me in welcoming the new guys! Here’s 20 of the new shooters who’ve been making waves so far:
The new Petzval Lens has proven itself a master of close-up shots and soulful portraits time and time again. Now some of our talented community members have stepped it up a notch and aimed the Petzval at city-scapes. From snow-capped pedestrians, couples chatting in parks, bustling markets, or people waiting to get on the metro - the beautiful banalities of city life are covered in these eloquent shots. Scroll through this gallery we've put together just for you to get a taste of the Petzval's urban potential!
You want your subject be the center of attention? Petzval lens photos are recognizable for sharpness and crispness in the centre, strong color saturation, wonderful swirly bokeh effect, artful vignettes and narrow depth of field that will make your subjects stand out!
