Noontime is when the sun is at its hottest, burning napes among pedestrians and commuters. Usually it's unfavorable to take photos at this time when the sunlight is too strong, but if you've got any great noontime shots to share with us, tag them accordingly and we'll pick top 3 photos to win some Piggies!
The benefits of tagging your photos: Lomographers can easily search and discover your photos; and with this rumble you could win Piggies if your photos are chosen! Just tag your photos according to the time they were taken – for this rumble, we need your shots tagged with ‘Noon’.
How to tag your Photos:
1. Login to your LomoHome account.
2. Go to the Lab.
3. Click a photo. On the left side you will see the “Assign a time and date” option. Choose from the drop-down menu and click the ‘Assign time and date’ button. Done!
To participate in this rumble:
Submit up to 10 of your most brilliant photos tagged with ‘Noon’. Remember to tag your photos correctly – improperly-tagged shots will be disqualified from the rumble! We will be picking the most wonderful images per each time category, so choose your best photos!
When a truly fascinating photograph hits you, it’s powerful enough to transport you to the story that is being told in that image. Such is what happens when one sees Suji Park's work for the first time. It’s as if you can actually hear and feel the details of each snapshot — the warmth of a late afternoon sun, the complex silence of nature or a dry and nostalgic solitude.
Canadian-born Ian Taylor is a full-time photographer specializing in kids and development work. It all started when his five siblings started having children at the same time he was into photography. This passion then spiraled into something amazing, and now Ian works primarily with kids, shooting them when they are in their purest form. Based in Asia, Ian has agreed to share this amazing series of photos he shot with his Petzval Art Lens in Cambodia and Thailand. He also shared with us some of his insights and views on photography.
There is nothing than a photo shot at the perfect moment. Henri Cartier Bresson's principle on "The Decisive Moment" is a principle that we should still follow to this day. A perfectly-timed photo creates impact, whether it's one of a friend jumping into the pool or a couple emerging from the ceremony on their wedding day. For this rumble, we want to see that breathtaking moment, shot at the perfect time.

Reminiscent of traveling photographers of the 19th century, Giles Clement tours through the country with his assistant, Zeiss (an Irish Terrier), offering everything from portrait sessions to wildly creative photographic projects for magazines and companies. And although his mode of transportation may have evolved with the times, his photographic method and gear have changed very little compared to the photographers of days past. Now, with over 3 years of tintyping experience under his belt and an impressive list of clients, he's carved a name out for himself as an accomplished tintyper and continues to spread his passion for this ages-old technique everywhere he goes.

Anna Hollond got her fist camera on her 10th birthday, and she hasn't stopped carrying a camera ever since. About a year ago, she sought to document her memories for her journal but didn't want to do so digitally, and got her first Lomography camera. Next thing she knew, she had a trove of instant cameras, as well as a knack for instant photography.
Autochrome was one of the first strides toward color photography. The combination of potato starch grains and silver bromide produces a cloudy cast that makes buildings like Villa Bonnier look even more intriguing.
