New Feature Launched - Photomails

28

A picture sometimes says more than a thousand words. A picture and a thousand words is even better! Without further ado, I give Lomography's Photomails!

Credits: superlighter

Sometimes leaving a comment isn’t enough. Perhaps you want to say something more private, or share an inside joke. Or it could be that you want your message to be a bit more personalized and not lost down the tubes of your LomoHome. The answer my friends, is our new feature (or new-old for the vets out there), photomails!

Now you can send out e-postcards of your to your friends, foes, loved ones or secret crushes via photomail. All you have to do is:

  • Go to your LomoHome
  • Pick a photo you want to send out
  • Click on the “send as photomail” button
  • Enter the email address of the recipient. Voila!

As an added bonus, all recipients will get a special voucher code. If they register at Lomography using that code, you’ll get Piggies. How awesome is that? Try it out now!

    Pushing Boundaries: So I Heard You Like Multiple Exposures

    My name is Amber Valentine and I have a confession to make: I’m not really a photographer. I have a website full of photographs, a bookshelf full of cameras, film waiting to be developed, and a wall full of framed pictures I’ve taken. Even so, I don’t really consider myself a photographer per se. I think that Lomography is more about the experimentation and the fun of film than it is about the photography, and that experimentation is part of the reason I have embraced Lomography so.

    LomoAmigo: Courtney Barnett

    Australian singer-songwriter Courtney Barnett sings about the frustrations, disappointments and the mundane aspects of life in her own animated and sometimes Dylan-esque style. Her debut album "Sometimes I Sit and Think and Sometimes I Just Sit" was released this year and has been getting positive reviews. We tweeted about her new album and she responded to say that she loved Lomography. It was the perfect opportunity for a shoot and an interview.

    Self to the World: The Photography of Leanne Surfleet

    A self-portrait may take root in confidence, extreme shyness or alternate bouts of each. Leanne Surfleet goes through this kind of fluctuation when the camera is all eyes. The attraction—as far as we’re concerned—is the mix of uncertainty and a kind of quiet poise. And here and there, a flash of skin that is more a mystery than full-on revelation. Even Surfleet’s portraits of other people have the same hushed invite, as if to say questions are encouraged. There we took our cue.
