Who says size does matter? It didn't in my case. I made my mother's day special with this compilation of photos I took of the family. Thinking of a cute gift? The answer is just in the palm of your hands.
We just celebrated mothers day this weekend. I want to share with you how I made my Mom feel extra special by giving her this mini photo album that I personalized for her. She was surprised at first of how unique and little the book was. She smiled as she flipped the pages of our favorite photos that reminded her of all the places we had been. The best part of it all is it can be put anywhere. She was undecided whether to use it with her bag as a keychain but thought it will be best to use it as a charm for her cellphone. “In that way, I know its always with me, and I can easily show it to my friends”, Mom said. I felt happy as well because she was proud of my shots.
Good things do come in small packages! This book of memories are just the right size for toting analogue photos to your friends so let your imagination fly in personalizing its cover.
I also had one made for myself as you can see with all my favorite shots of all the cameras I use. I know by showing this to my friends I can promote Lomography.
A couple of weeks ago, my family and I celebrated Hari Raya after a month of fasting during the holy month of Ramadan. Since the first day I laid my hands on the Lubitel 166+, I've always had the thought of taking portraits of my family. So this year, I finally took them. Here they are: Hari Raya Portraits!
In celebration of the mindblowing solar eclipse we had the other day, we ran a competition and asked you to tag your analogue photos centered around our great big yellow friend! Check out the winners now!
In December last year James Wright, editor and creative director of So It Goes Magazine, went on a two-week trip to Sri Lanka, "a place so long on our bucket list, but up until then, as yet unvisited," he writes on the first of his three-part photo diary. Herein is the first of his series that chronicles his adventures, highlighted by a selection of breathtaking images of the Sri Lankan countryside and the locals, among many other images, captured with his trusty photographic companions: the Leica MP, Lomo LC-A+, and an assortment of films including the LomoChrome Purple.
Simeon Smith is a musician who recorded the sounds of our film cameras in action and made these samples available as a free download. We couldn't resist interviewing him about this project and taking a look at some of his photos. Meet the man behind the cams here.
Stephen Shore introduced to the 70s art world an unadorned image of American life. He captured littered restaurant tables as other photographers would immaculate vistas. For the opening of “American Surfaces”, he even taped unframed snapshots on gallery walls. In these videos, Shore talks about objects that have “no pretention to art” and the things he learned from Andy Warhol.
