Ashton Kutcher Shot With the Sprocket Rocket Camera at SXSW

18

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!

Ashton Kutcher at SXSW 2011

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?

    I didn't get to meet up with y'all :( ... but I did just load several new albums from SxSW, lots of street photography :D ... we had people stopping us left and right asking us about our cameras, my sister borrowed my Instant Back for her Diana, and that got the most attention!

    WAH! Cool one! Every celebrity encounter I had so far had crappy analogue pictures as a result :). Fettes Brot an me: blurry pictures, black pictures. Other pictures are just underexposed :) So I gave up taking pictures with me and celebs on it. although...ashton kutcher...mhhh...

    Totally thought Ashton used a sprocket rocket by the title of the article. Cool that you saw him, duped into thinking he was a new lomoamigo though! Wish he was.

    Meh! His involvement with Lomography is not necisarily a good thing. He can't act and he seems like a bit of a too to be honest.

    LomoAmigos: The Ting Tings Go Analogue!

    The Ting Tings are a musical duo from Manchester who have more pop hits than you can shake a stick at. They are most famous for their 2008 hit "That's Not My Name" which got even the stiffest of people shaking in their seats. The Ting Tings are back with a brand new album called Super Critical. They are big film fanatics (check out their website for proof) so we gave them a Sprocket Rocket Camera and a bunch of film to document their life in sunny IBIZA.
