Happy to Have Film Rumble

Have you ever had an experience where a backup roll of film in your bag or in your car become a centerpiece of an epic tale? Tell us and win Piggies!

Did this woman you’ve been crushing on for years ask you out of the blue if you have an extra roll of film? Or did a nearby water dam spring a leak and you shoved in a film canister to stop it? We’ve all got awesome tales of how having a handy roll of film quickly changed things. Tell us your story, complete with pictures of course, and leave the link to your blog post here. The most popular one will get 15 Piggies which can be used to buy more film! 2 Runners-up get 5 Piggies to boot. Good luck!

    4 Years in Paradise: Living and Learning in French Polynesia

    People seek extraordinary experiences while traveling, but not everyone gets to have an adventure of a lifetime. When lomographer Stephane Heinz (popularly known as vicuna in the Lomography community) saw the opportunity, he took the chance to travel and live miles away from his hometown in France. He and his wife, Kathi, came back home with a luggage full of valuable experiences and life lessons. Vicuna tells us about his four-year adventure in French Polynesia in this travel special.

    Pushing Boundaries: Multiple Exposing Film Soup

    As you may have read in my previous article, I truly fell in love with Lomography when I combined my Fisheye camera with an old Canon AE-1 for magical photographic results. Last summer, I took so many pictures of flowers that it started to become almost boring for me. My waning interest and the coming winter meant that I had to figure out something else to do with my 35mm film.
