Part of the Lomography Online team was at the SXSW festival last week. We've met a lot of interesting people for future cooperations and stories (you will see some very interesting things coming up), met some great Lomographers in the Austin area and took a photo of Ashton Kutcher!
How did that happen? One night we ran into Ashton, talked to him about Lomography and what we are up to and he was kind enough to pose for a shot. The light was very low, so I eagerly waited for the results – but it turned out fine, our trusty Lomography Sprocket Rocket did wonders even in suboptimal conditions!
So what about you? Any interesting celebrity encounters you can tell us about?
