Nominate Your Best LC-A Shots Of 2008

43

The new year may be here, but we are just not ready to forget all about 2008 yet! For many the "LC-A":http://www.lomography.com/lca+/ is the Lomography camera of choice so we though it fitting that we create a small homage to our loyal servant. You may have shot 1 roll of film through the Minitar lens, or maybe even 50, no matter how many we are sure that there is one picture that just stood out from the rest. Nominate this picture to the soon to come LCA Album of the year (you can find my submission in above :) )

Rules:

  • Only shots taken with the LC-A or the LC-A+
  • Only 1 shot
  • Everyone that gets their shoot in the resulting gallery gets 5 piggies

Good luck!

    me too so I've picked one that my mate (who's a photography student) said had great composition but is very typically lomo - from the hip and a light leak for good measure. Good luck everyone!

  17. maxpinckers

    with "one shoot" do you mean one picture or 1 roll ????

  18. lucasjakobsson

    @ max

    i picture, sorry

  19. sonjabean

    I think you mean "your best LC-A shots of 2008." A "shoot" is an activity, "I'm going on a shoot," i.e. "I'm going to take pictures." A "shoot" also has a more professional connotation or at least refers to a specific event - it's not usually used if you're just carrying your camera around and taking snapshots on the fly. A "shot" is a picture, one picture, "Nice shot!"

    Imperfection Is In Everything We Do: A Talk With Adriano Sodré

    Just as we love the grainy sound of a vinyl record playing our latest jazz favorites, we choose analog photography for its natural imperfections that remind us so wondrously of our own reality. Its shortcomings are what make an analog photograph so appealing. We talked to Adriano Guimarães Sodré, a 26-year-old cinematographer, DJ, and photographer who carefully composes pictures that capture a solitary moment in its most natural beauty.

    Lomography's Optics Head Cat Ong shot moving lights, shadows and distant views to test the optic capacities of the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Art Lens 2.8/32M. Though drawn to precise zone focusing and aperture values, he tried to be more intuitive while walking around town with the Minitar-1 Art Lens. He took incredibly detailed photos under the Hong Kong sun and through the haze of Vienna.

    So here’s what we’ve been working on: an all new lomography.com

    For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.

    Photo Stories: Away With You by lomomowlem

    It is clear from the wild variety of photos in the website that Lomographers will do just about anything to get a good shot. Some swap rolls with friends overseas while others concoct unheard-of film soups. And then there are the masters of operations, the ones who spy and crouch their way to a share-worthy picture. This is one such story.
