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.

It is always a pleasant experience collaborating with our old friends and LomoAmigos. This time, Emily Soto shot another wonderful series with her Petzval Art Lens. We can't wait to share it with everyone, so here they are!
Lomographers love reflections. Peruse the website and you are bound to find water puddles mirroring trees and glass windows duplicating people's motions. What beautiful sights to record indeed! But how else can we approach this doppelgänger effect? Seven ace photographers give us wonderful ideas.

Before smartphones and digital cameras, Diego Uchitel used a Polaroid to test his lighting. For many of his subjects, these dress rehearsal shots turned out as marvelous as the published pictures.
