We all have our favourite people and we all have our reasons why we love shooting them on film! So what are you waiting for? Write about them and let the Lomographic world know about their place in your analogue heart!
A year ago, The LomoPeople Series was launched and since then, the Magazine has already featured a number of portraits and descriptions of people — from friends, lovers, to strangers — who are rad, inspiring, and adorable in their own ways.
This series has branched out into our local community sites as well, such as LomoPeople India and LomoPeople Malaysia. And aye — the callout for LomoPeople is still ongoing. However, we would like to tweak a few guidelines for your submissions.
New Submission Guidelines for LomoPeople:
Title: “LomoPeople: NAME” (of the person you are featuring).
1 analogue prorate shot of a single person.
Minimum photo dimensions: at least 768px in either width or height.
Minimum of 200 words.
Accepted/Published submissions get 5 Piggy Points!
(Note: These guidelines will apply to submissions received starting today, 19th August 2011.)
Let us dedicate this series to all the lovely people that we adore taking pictures of! Submit an Analogue Lifestyle piece and tell the Lomographic community why you choose that special someone!
We all know about 35mm and 120 film, right? And since Lomography re-introduced 110 film, we have another film format to play with. But in the years past, many more film formats were in use. Let me introduce you to a few golden oldies and tell you about my experiences with them. I'll start with Rapid film.
You want your subject be the center of attention? Petzval lens photos are recognizable for sharpness and crispness in the centre, strong color saturation, wonderful swirly bokeh effect, artful vignettes and narrow depth of field that will make your subjects stand out!

On this day and age when many are incorporating digital gear into their workflows, whether fully or partly, there still are photographers who remain rooted to their analog roots and continue to shoot with film cameras. In commemoration of Film Photography Day happening tomorrow, we have scoured through our past interviews to highlight the reasons these photographers choose to still shoot film.
For some, it marked their first foray into the wonderful world of analog photography. Others consider it a trusty, go-to camera despite having a massive camera collection which sometimes include some of the best gear there is. Whatever the case may be, toy cameras will always hold a special place in the hearts (and shelves) of analog photographers everywhere, quirks and all.
Fueled by wanderlust, a sense of wonder, and curiosity, lomographers have been through all corners of the world to explore and capture on film everything it has to offer. Lomographers have arguably seen it all—and by all we mean not just the beautiful vistas, but also those places that only the brave ones venture into. Here are but a few of them.
Mark Scadding and William Paltridge form Double Exposure Photographic and are based in the South of England. They have used the Petzval lens extensively for portraiture and a few food photography shots. We were intrigued to know more about this creative duo and asked them about shooting with this exciting lens.
Aside from developing his own black and white negatives, he also crafts pinhole cameras out of ordinary boxes. His dreamy, soft-focus lomographs even inspired some of the community members to go lens-less on their next photo shoot. Let's get to know more about our newcomer of the week from Sheffield, United Kingdom, sandy_sun!
Our Lomographers love their Petzval and, as a result, they have taken it to the most amazing places: gardens full of green, immensely busy cities and breathtaking landscapes. Yet, sometimes, all you need is what you have right at home. Keeping family memories with the Petzval Lens never looked this good, and golfpunkgirl does it well.
