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!"

    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.

    ‘Hang over’ in this case doesn’t mean you need to guzzle gallons of beer or pints of whiskey. The Lomo LC-A-to-Z tells us to hang over, which means that we should try shooting from above or shoot subjects that are in a way higher spot than we are.

    Playing Detective: An Interview with Derek Woods, the Man Behind the Controversial True Detective Photo (NSFW)

    Derek Woods is an Los Angeles-based photographer who previously got involved in a controversy surrounding a photo that was used in the opening credits of the HBO TV series "True Detective." Coincidentally, Woods happens to be a member of the Lomo community, and it became vital to interview him regarding the issue. The interview was successful and was published in May last year. His current project, 365 of Lomography, will chronicle his day-to-day exploits with Lomography cameras. To jog your memory, and to re-acquaint you with Woods, we are republishing our interview with the controversial photographer. Please take note that some of the photos are NSFW.
